Trump continues to lead in New Hampshire and a lot of that has to do with the fact that the state is nothing like Iowa and Trump will not have to worry about religion interfering with his support totals.

A large part of Ted Cruz’s success was the evangelical vote in Iowa, but this vote simply doesn’t exist on the same level in New Hampshire.

For both Cruz and Trump, they need to start worrying about the rise of Marco Rubio. The candidate is aligned with the GOP establishment, many of which are backing him and providing him with the necessary intelligence he will need to win the nomination.

Hillary Clinton and Sanders sparred last night in a heated debate. Clinton went on the attack, trying to hide her shady record against Sander’s honest criticisms. For the most part, Sanders handled the debate well and exposed Clinton for her lies, something she has desperately been trying to avoid throughout the current election cycle. Based on the current polling averages, Sanders should be able to score a victory in New Hampshire.
