The New Hampshire Primary 2

Well New Hampshire is underway and on the Democratic but things are a tad surprising on the Republican side.

For the Democrats:

Bernie Sanders - 58.32%
Hillary Clinton - 39.57%

Apparently Clinton conceded as soon as the polls closed.

Now for the Republicans. At the moment it looks like this.

Donald Trump - 34.20%
John Kasich - 16.01%
Ted Cruz - 11.59%
Jeb Bush - 11.59%
Marco Rubio - 9.90%
Chris Christie - 7.40%
Carly Fiorina - 4.43%
Ben Carson - 2.37%

This is better for Trump than predicted and what happened to Rubio? Did his robotic demeanor over the last week lead to this? Perhaps Kasich becomes the new establishment golden boy after today?

Trump could actually win the whole enchilada. Well that's better than Cruz but I just don't think he'd make a very good president. He's a showman and not a statesman.

Carson should seriously consider hanging it up after this and Fiorina as well but the word is Carson is already heading for South Carolina.
