There you have it, folks! Donald is the winner of the super important New Hampshire primary – the first of the 2016 election season!

This is a huge win for Donald, since the first primary gets so much attention and can be very telling for the rest of the upcoming presidential election.

In New Hampshiure, 34% of the electorate went for Donald, who ran away with many of the state’s independent voters.

Donald was far and away the favorite to win the first primary election. He has maintained a steady lead in the polls, and just one day before the election CNN reported he lead with 17 points, with 33% of likely Republican voters choosing him. He was followed next by Marco with 16%, and then Ted with 14%. Ted was the big winner of the Iowa caucus. He took home 27.6% of the vote while Donald got 24.3% and Marco got 23.1%.
