Going into the highly-anticipated New Hampshire primary, Senator Bernie Sanders has trumped former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.
Before Sanders energized young voters with his democratic socialist fire, HRC led in New Hampshire by 40 points. While Sanders has insisted that he was the underdog in New Hampshire, Clinton said that he was the probable favorite because he comes from a neighboring state.

The Clinton campaign initially believed that she would have cinched the nomination in February; they now project she will when it in March, reports Politico.com.
The nomination will very likely be won in March, not February, and we believe that Hillary Clinton is well positioned to build a strong – potentially insurmountable – delegate lead next month.
Clinton is till polling strong among African-American and Hispanic voters, and is expected to poll better in Southern states.
To @BernieSanders, congratulations. To New Hampshire, thank you. And to our volunteers: I’m so grateful for what you built. Now, onward. -H
