GOP frontrunner Donald Trump’s numbers were lifted in New Hampshire by broad support among voters seeking a political outsider, along with anger at the Obama administration, political establishment and strong worry about the economy and terrorism, along with substantial backing for some of his controversial policy proposals, exit polls indicate.
If you didn’t know this, voters were still driving to the polls to have their voice heard at 6:00 PM EST on Tuesday night!

Donald Trump has won the Republican presidential primary in New Hampshire. Just take a moment to let that sink in.

From The Hill:
All major cable news networks and The Associated Press all immediately declared Trump the victor as soon as polls closed at 8 p.m.
Second place was too close to call as votes were still being tabulated Tuesday evening.
Trump entered Tuesday the heavy favorite, but he badly needed to prove he could turn the energy surrounding his campaign into hard votes and a victory.
