Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders won the presidential race at the New Hampshire Championships.
Republican Donald Trump is likely to get more than twice the number of votes of the next Republican candidate.
Democrat Bernie Sanders, who defeated rival Hillary Clinton by a huge margin, said his victory showed that people wanted “real change.”
Both candidates are on a wave of dissatisfaction with the main policy.
Ohio Gov. John Kasic came in second in the Republican vote, and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio competed for third place.
New Hampshire is the second state to select delegates in the long battle for a nomination after last week’s Iowa rallies, which were won by Ted Cruz for Republicans and Hillary Clinton for Democrats.
The result gave a boost to the winners before the next races in South Carolina and Nevada.
Donald Trump’s leadership in New Hampshire is the first time that the New York billionaire, who has never held office, has turned his widespread support in opinion polls into an election victory.
In his speech for victory, Donald Trump congratulated Democratic winner Bernie Sanders, but said that “he wants to divide our country, people!”
Donald Trump, 69, has promised to deport millions of migrants living illegally in the United States; construction of a wall on the border with Mexico; and impose a temporary ban on all Muslims entering the country.
With nearly 90 percent of the vote counted, Senator Bernie Sanders has a lead of more than 20 percentage points over Hilton Clinton in the race for two horses for the Democratic nomination. In recent months, he has led polls in New Hampshire, but this is still a significant victory for the self-described Socialist Democratic candidate.
“What the people here have said is that, given the huge crises our country is facing, it is too late for the same old, same old policy of the establishment and the economy of the establishment.” Bernie Sanders said in a speech to his supporters late on February 9.
Bernie Sanders, 74, has vowed to eliminate income inequality, provide free university education and break up big banks.
Hillary Clinton congratulated Bernie Sanders, but said in a speech that she would continue to fight for every vote in the campaign. Despite the failure, she still remains the leader in the nomination.
Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager, Robbie Mook, said in a note that they expected the race for the Democratic nomination “very likely” to be decided in March.
The former secretary of state acknowledged before the polls that Bernie Sanders has a natural advantage in New Hampshire, as he represents the neighboring state of Vermont as a senator.
Hillary Clinton, who has more support from the Democratic establishment, won closely in Iowa.
Most polling stations in New Hampshire close at 7pm local time, with government officials predicting historic turnout.
They are the first competitions in the US presidential race in which the states decide who will become the official candidate of each party.
