Trump Emerges Victorious in New Hampshire Republican Primary

Former President Donald Trump has emerged as the winner of the Republican primary in New Hampshire, according to projections by AP and Fox News.

Trump Wins in New Hampshire

Former President of the United States, Trump, has apparently won the Republican primary in New Hampshire. According to projections, he is ahead of his competitor, former UN Ambassador Haley. However, she refuses to give up.

Former US President Donald Trump has apparently won the crucial primary for the Republican presidential nomination in the state of New Hampshire. This was reported by the news agency AP and the broadcaster Fox News on Tuesday evening (local time) unanimously based on their own projections.

His competitor, former US Ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, congratulated Trump but continued to say that the race for the Republican presidential nomination is “far from over”. She will now bring her “spirited” campaign to her home state of South Carolina, where the next primary will take place in early February. She is a fighter.

Trump Calls Haley a “Phony”

After the projections became known, Trump verbally attacked Haley at a campaign rally. “She’s doing a victory lap, even though we beat her so handily,” Trump said in Nashua about Haley. He called her a phony who claims victory for herself. “She won’t win,” said Trump.

Trump and Haley were engaged in a duel for their party’s nomination for the presidential election in early November in the small East Coast state. Florida Governor Ron DeSantis dropped out of the race just before the vote. In New Hampshire, Trump had already been leading Haley in polls, although with a smaller margin than in other states.

The Party Base Solidly Supports Trump

For Haley, a win in New Hampshire would have been particularly important. The 52-year-old, who once represented Trump’s confrontational foreign policy on the international stage as a diplomat, is perceived as politically more moderate than her former boss and is also rhetorically much more moderate.

In New Hampshire, she was hoping for success due to the less radical-minded conservative voters. That Trump won there as well shows once again how solidly the party base supports the 77-year-old.

Trump faces four criminal proceedings as a Republican, including his attempts to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election, which he lost to Democrat Joe Biden. Despite the legal troubles, Trump has not lost popularity among his supporters. The victory in New Hampshire makes another duel between him and Biden more likely in the upcoming presidential election.

Candidates will be nominated in the summer

To become a presidential candidate in the US, one must first prevail in party primaries. The candidates will then be officially nominated at party conventions in the summer. The actual presidential election is scheduled for November 5.

The first Republican primary decision took place in mid-January in the state of Iowa. Trump won there by a large margin ahead of DeSantis and Haley. While voting took place at party meetings in Iowa, known as caucus meetings, people in New Hampshire voted for their favorite in traditional polling stations on Tuesday.
