New Hampshire Primary: Big Wins and Losses for Democratic Candidates

After chaotic caucuses in Iowa, the candidates moved to New Hampshire, hoping to claim a clear victory. Sanders ended up on top, with 25.6% of the vote, earning him 9 delegates. Buttigieg followed close behind, winning 9 delegates as well with 24.3% of the vote. These wins follow Buttigieg’s win in Iowa and Bernie’s close second place. These two are now viewed as the front-runners of the race, but there is still much to happen before any candidate claims the Democratic nomination.

To the surprise of many, Klobuchar won 19.7% of the vote and 6 delegates; Warren and Biden trailed behind, with 9.2% and 8.4% of the vote, respectively. After poor results for Yang in both New Hampshire and Iowa, he officially dropped out of the running, announcing “I am the math guy and it is clear tonight from the numbers that we are not going to win this race.”
