Donald Trump has just been projected the winner of the New Hampshire Primary. This is another historic win for Trump as he becomes the first non-incumbent to win both the Iowa Caucus and the New Hampshire Primary. He is also the first candidate in history to win the New Hampshire Primary 3 times. The Trump campaign was very disciplined in talking about the border which is the number 1 issue now for Republicans.
How close Haley will end up is yet to be determined. Whether she risks losing in her home state is yet to be determined. Trump has been gracious to those who have dropped out. If she fights on South Carolina may be the "never Trumpers" last stand. She is making what appears to be a concession speech at the moment, thanking Gov Sununu and her supporters in the state of NH. Apparently, she is going to fight on. God bless her.
On the democratic side, the dems used tremendous recourses in not only supporting Haley, but also getting Biden to beat the two unknowns on the democrat side as a write-in candidate.
