Clinton defies the pollsters in New Hampshire


Hillary Clinton has defied the pollsters and come out on top in New Hampshire. After a close race, the former First Lady has won the primary election there for the Democratic Party. It had been neck-and-neck between Clinton and Barack Obama in the state, where the race was much tighter than predicted by pollsters.

Clinton had to fight hard to make a comeback when Obama, a senator from Illinois, was said to be well ahead in opinion polls in recent days.

Clinton told her supporters: “I want especially to thank New Hampshire. Over the last week I listened to you … and in the process I found my own voice.”

In the past the primary election in this state has been seen as a strong indicator of who becomes the country’s leader.

This is the second round of voting in state-by-state ballots and caucuses to choose the official candidates for the Democrat and Republican parties.
