With 80 percent of precincts reporting, Sanders had 25.8 percent of the vote, Pete Buttigieg had 24.4 percent, Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) had 19.8 percent, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) had 9.4 percent, and former Vice President Joe Biden had 8.4 percent.
“Thank you, New Hampshire,” Sanders told his supporters in response to the win. “The reason that we won tonight in New Hampshire, we won last week in Iowa – is because of the hard work of so many volunteers. And let me say tonight that this victory here is the beginning of the end for Donald Trump.”
Bernie Sanders also posted on Twitter about the win, reminding everyone of the bloody history of his socialist ideology, which resulted in the deaths of millions in the last century, by stating his victory “is nothing short of the beginning of a political revolution.”

Sanders is now a strong favorite to win the Democratic nomination, according to betting site PredictIt.org. The same site also has Republican odds of winning the 2020 presidential election trending sharply upwards in correlation with Sanders, presumably because the American people are unlikely to elect a socialist, indicating President Trump is becoming an increasingly stronger favorite to win the presidency.
