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:
- 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.
