At the primary on February 10, Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Bernie Sanders dominated, both taking home a win. Donald trump rallied in a 35.5% win, and Bernie Sanders ended up prevailing with 60% of the votes.

On the Democratic side of the debate, it seems that the only candidates left are Bernie Sanders, and closely following is Hillary Clinton, who came in second with 38.2% of the votes. Heading back to the other side of the debate, Donald Trump may not have to worry about this debate due to John Kaish coming in second with 15.8% of the votes, having lead in the past two debates.

The big question after the primaries is what made all these people vote for Sanders and Trump. Trump, known for his opinionated mouth and bombastic tendencies, might have won over the hearts of the people of New Hampshire. Trump spoke very freely at the debate speaking of how he would, “knock the hell out of ISIS” or that he vows to be the greatest jobs president that God ever created…” according to a The New York Times article. These ideas appealed to the crowds who were ready for a change to a leader who speaks his mind.

Sanders may have taken a different approach to win over the people. Sanders was enticing voters by showing his ideas on equality. Sanders mentioned that he believes the government belongs to all the people not just a couple people. His unity may have brought the people together to vote for Sanders

Leading the last debate in Iowa, republican Ted Cruz and democrat Hillary Clinton debated their best but fell flat.

With less than a year to go, we will bid farewell to Barack Obama and will finally figure out if Trump can “trump” his opponents or if Sanders can keep his lead over Clinton.
