The polling firm at Decision Desk HQ placed people throughout New Hampshire to take exit polls in the Republican and Democrat primary.
As counties start counting their ballots (by hand!) we now can predict that tonight’s likely winners are: Senator (I-VT) and conservative businessman Donald J. Trump!
Here is what they came up with:
Bernie Sanders ——- 62.0%
Hillary Clinton ——— 36.5%
Donald Trump ——– 35.8%
Ted Cruz ————— 15.2%
John Kasich ———– 14.9%
Marco Rubio ———- 10.7%
Jeb Bush ————— 9.6%
Chris Christie ———- 5.9%
Carly Fiorina ———– 3.8%
Ben Carson ———— 2.5%
Trump’s lead, according to the exit poll, is so profound that he is leading among Independents, Male, Female, and all age groups.
In addition, according to ABC News, a vast majority of the GOP voters endorse Trump’s plan to secure the borders and temporarily ban all Muslims from immigrating into America:
