We’ve Been Trumped


There seems to be an underlying question flowing through boston.com’s latest article on the 2016 New Hampshire primary election: Who is going to overpower Trump?

No one knows the answer.

The New Hampshire primary was the Republican party’s last hope at closing the gap between Trump and the rest of the Republican candidates. Now, the journey to remove Trump from the number one spot will be a long and expensive one.

Here is the list (in order) of who won the most votes:

  1. Trump
  2. Kasich
  3. Cruz, Bush, and Rubio

However, Trump won by a landslide.

Republicans thought Rubio would overtake Trump, but after Gov. Chris Christie embarrassed him in a debate Saturday, his support died down.

The race presses on to South Carolina. Only then will we know how the rest of this game on the Republican side will play out.

Hello! I am a 22-year-old Boston University alumna from Sacramento, CA. I graduated with a Bachelor's degree in journalism in 2017. I plan on attending law school in the future, but I want to find a way to also incorporate journalism in my career. I have seen the side of law through working at a law office for more than four years and participating in mock trial competitions. After one of the competitions, I received a top attorney award for my city’s region. Now I am ready to experience the side of journalism. I am ready to devote my skills and work ethic to it. I am ready to be the eyes, ears, and voice of the people. ~ singer/songwriter, Tough Mudder competitor, runner~
