Trump, Sanders win big in New Hampshire

US Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump addresses a rally in Manchester, New Hampshire, on February 8, 2016The runaway victory by Sanders, a self-described democratic socialist advocating nothing less than “political revolution,” spelled a deflating if expected defeat for Hillary Clinton, who put a brave face on the loss and admitted she had work to do as the campaign moves south. On the Republican side, Trump’s visceral assault on American politics galvanized voters who brought him his debut victory in the fledgling race, keeping him in pole position despite his second-place showing in last week’s Iowa caucuses. Ohio Governor John Kasich’s uplifting and positive message of renewal catapulted him into second place, a potentially critical result for him as the Republican Party works out which mainstream candidate could successfully challenge the billionaire tycoon Trump.
