Presidential race moves to New Hampshire

<p>After a scare in Iowa where she scraped the narrowest of wins, Hillary Clinton has moved on to New Hampshire along with the other wanna-be presidential nominees.</p> <p>But the battle for the Democrat ticket has never been tighter and if the former secretary of state was hoping for some winning momentum she may be disappointed.</p> <p>Her rival Bernie Sanders is claiming to have “astounded the world” by coming from nowhere and forcing Clinton into an almost dead heat . He is also thought to have a home advantage for the February 9 vote, him being senator of the neighbouring state of Vermont.</p> <p>Republican Ted Cruz may have prevailed in Iowa despite the polls favouring Donald Trump but New Hampshire is quite a different challenge with a more moderate and less religious electorate than the evangelical Cruz would like.</p> <p>He will also have a confident Marco Rubio chasing him who after his third place surge in Iowa is viewed as a unifying candidate for the Republicans.</p> <p>And the man who got the voters turning out in their droves on Monday Donald Trump is definitely putting his shock second place behind him. </p> <p>He says this time he’s putting in the money and effort into in New Hampshire.</p> <p>Next Tuesday’s results determine how the state’s delegates will be allocated, which ultimately determines who will become their party’s nominee.</p> <h3>Iowa results</h3> <p>Republican Party front runners </p> <p>Ted Cruz – 27.6% – 8 delegates<br /> Donald Trump – 24.3% – 7 delegates<br /> Marco Rubio – 23.1% – 7 delegates</p> <p>Democratic Party front runners</p> <p>Hillary Clinton – 49.8% – 22 delegates<br /> Bernie Sanders – 49.6% – 21 delegates</p> <p><strong><span class="caps">REPUBLICANS</span></strong> <script id="infogram_0_usa_election_republicans" title="USA ELECTION REPUBLICANS" src="//e.infogr.am/js/embed.js?Gb5" type="text/javascript"></script><br /> <strong><span class="caps">DEMOCRATS</span></strong> <script id="infogram_0_usa_election_democrats" title="USA election Democrats" src="//e.infogr.am/js/embed.js?nXf" type="text/javascript"></script></p>
