MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) - His supporters are waving large foam fingers marked "You're hired" and chanting "USA." Backers of Donald Trump are celebrating the billionaire's victory in the New Hampshire primary. Trump finished well ahead of the pack. He thanked supporters and said he heard the end of Bernie Sanders' victory speech. Trump vowed not to let Sanders "give the country away." Exit polls showed Republicans are disappointed with their representatives in Washington. Four in ten said they were angry.
Ohio Gov. John Kasich has claimed second place in today's Republican primary in New Hampshire. Polling shows Kasich did best with voters looking for a candidate with political experience. He also scored well with moderates, better educated voters and those who made their vote decision in the past few days.
Bernie Sanders says his solid win in today's New Hampshire primary was "huge" (yooj) and sends a message that the government belongs to all of the people, not just wealthy campaign contributors. Sanders reminded supporters on both sides that they must come together by the fall to prevent "right-wing Republicans" from taking the White House. Polling shows Sanders racked up a majority of votes from men, women, independents and voters under 45.
Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton has told her supporters she still loves New Hampshire and that she always will, despite a solid loss to Bernie Sanders in today's Democratic primary. Speaking with her husband and daughter at her side, Clinton vowed to get back up and to take her campaign to the entire country and fight for every vote and real solutions.
