Trump defeats Haley to win key New Hampshire primary
Donald Trump has secured a big win in the New Hampshire Republican presidential primary, according to CBS. This victory strengthens his position to become the party’s candidate in the upcoming November presidential election.
Despite Trump’s success, Nikki Haley, his last rival, insists the race isn’t over, declaring herself a determined fighter.
Although Trump’s victory in New Hampshire did not match the 20-point margin that was predicted by recent polls, it should be more than enough to maintain the current direction of the race.
He won by a landslide in the first contest in Iowa. And the upcoming states on the Republican primary calendar tilt more heavily in his favour than New Hampshire, suggesting his march towards the nomination will soon become a stampede.
Meanwhile, Joe Biden is expected to win the Democratic primary, but internal party disputes prevent official recognition of the results.
