New Hampshire formally kicked off the primary season and while Donald Trump handily won the GOP primary there, Bernie Sanders ended up crushing frontwoman Hillary Clinton. It is possible that since Sanders and Trump are viewed as many to be outsiders, this could have worked in their favour, but Clinton and Sanders received more total votes, which is a sign about the bigger picture concerning the election.
In 2nd place was John Kasich, a surprise of sorts considering his mainstream appeal. On the DNC side, many didn’t think Clinton stood a chance up north, and in Iowa she merely squeaked by with a win by 1%. Clinton vowed to do better by Millennials that mainly support Sanders and are embracing socialism as a major platform. Millennials are staunchly in the Dems’ corner, and with Trump seen as a one-hit wonder, the rhetoric is what ultimately will decide fates.
