    NASHUA, N.H. (AP) — Donald Trump nailed down a decisive first victory in New Hampshire presidential primary Tuesday, proving his unorthodox campaign can translate the large crowds at his rambunctious rallies into the votes that determine delegates.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders won the New Hampshire Democratic primary after convincing voters he is more honest and trustworthy than Hillary Clinton, pointing to a potential liability for the former secretary of state as the race for president moves to Nevada and South Carolina, according to exit poll results. Sanders also won big among young voters, including young women, according to the polls conducted by Edison Research for The Associated Press and television networks.

    BY NANCY BENAC, Associated Press | Published: Tue, Feb 9, 2016

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Time to trade in those boots and head south and west. After Sen. Bernie Sanders and businessman Donald Trump cruised to victory in snowy New Hampshire, the presidential race sprints on to South Carolina and Nevada — perhaps with a smaller cast of characters. A guide to what to watch for on Wednesday, the day after New Hampshire's first-in-the-nation primary: DEPARTURE LOUNGE: Iowa turned out to be the end of the line for four candidates: Republican Mike Huckabee and Democrat Martin O'Malley had dropped out by midnight on caucus night, and Rand Paul and Rick Santorum weren't far behind. Additional Republican candidates could well head for the exits after New Hampshire.

  • Trump and Cruz battle for victory in Iowa's leadoff caucuses

    BY STEVE PEOPLES and JILL COLVIN, Associated Press | Published: Mon, Feb 1, 2016

    DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — A new phase in the fight for the Republican Party's soul begins Monday night as Iowa voters decide whether they prefer Donald Trump's aggressive populist politics or Ted Cruz's fiery conservativism in the GOP's opening presidential primary contest of 2016. While only a first step, Iowa's decision will play prominently in shaping the Republican election. As Trump and Cruz eye first place, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio is working to emerge as the clear favorite in his party's mainstream wing, which fears both Cruz and Trump would be a disaster in a general election matchup against the Democratic nominee.
