Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump turned around the political world by winning key votes that will be a great boost in the United States presidential Race.
After Lowa, New Hampshire was the second voting state. The two men spoke of their discontent with the traditional politicians, a move that saw them earn the decisive victories in the state.
The billionaire, Mr. Trump, who purposes to ban foreign Muslims from U.S. and construct a “great wall” on the border with Mexico, got double the support that his nearest Republican rival got.
Mr. Sanders is a self-described socialist. In the race, he scored 20% higher than what his Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton got.
The state has a population of 1.3 million residents. The total voter turnout is estimated to be 555,000 voters.
In the case of the Republicans, 90% were dissatisfied with the government while forty percent indicated that they were “angry” at the politicians.
Donald Trump seemed to have gained a stronger footing. The supporters chanted “”USA, USA…We love Donald.” Some waved foam hands containing the pictorial of the man.
When he took to the podium, Donald said that he would open job opportunities. He further added that most politicians are after deals that can benefit them. With him, he plans to make America greater than it has ever been.
Donald went ahead to claim that “Sanders would give America away.”
In an equally noisy political rally, Sanders said that his win showed a start of “US political revolution.” He said that they had jointly sent an resounding echo that would be heard everywhere; Main to California, Wall Street to Washington.
He added that the government did not belong to just a handful of individual but instead, it belonged to the people.
In a concession speech, Hillary Clinton admitted that she still had work to do particularly when it came to the youth. She added that the citizens were not wrong to be angry but still they were still hungry for solutions.
John Kasich, the Ohio Governor, became second in most of the votes counted from the Republic votes. This made a possible takeout on Donald Trump during the nomination process.
Kasich will face competition for the same post against Joe Bush, Florida Governor and Marco Rubio, Florida Senator.
Christ Christie, during the Saturday’s debate performed poorly. He thus opted to retreat to his New Jersey home where he would opt for another action.
In the 60 years that have passed so far, the candidates that were successful in New Hampshire party nomination went ahead to reach the White House.
However, George Bush, Barack Obama and Bill Clinton got elected even after loosing in the state.
