Update: US Presidential primaries

10-11 February 2016 – New Hampshire results

Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders each won their presidential nomination contests in New Hampshire today, underlining the anti-establishment mood of voters in both parties.

Two more Republican candidates – Carly Fiorina and Governor Chris Christie – have withdrawn from the race in the 24 hours following the vote. This should simplify the difficulties faced by the divided ‘establishment’ group of candidates a little.

[Update February 13: former Virginia Governor Jim Gilmour has also announced his withdrawal from the race for the Republican nomination.]

Latest vote totals and delegate counts (including proportions of total party convention delegates) are set out below.

These tallies include the support of elected delegates that have been confirmed by public endorsements. Such delegate are unbound and their vote can change at the convention (and see observations by Nate Silver at 538.com.)
