Meanwhile, Vermont senator Bernie Sanders had a convincing victory in the New Hampshire Democratic primary. Political analysts said this win over Hillary Clinton will send shockwaves through her campaign and give the Vermont senator an edge as he heads to tougher states in the next weeks to come.
"Thank you, New Hampshire," Sanders said in his victory speech. "Now it's on to Nevada, South Carolina and beyond."
According to Associated Press, with about 80% turn out in the Democratic primary, Sanders lead with 59.9% to Clinton's 38.5%.
However, Sanders may have won the pulse of young progressives in Iowa and New Hampshire, he'll likely have problems in Nevada, The Washington Times reported. Nevada voters are expected to resist the insurgent's call to revolution.
Nevada is the first state where Sanders is going to compete where there's a significant minority voting group in Latinos. The Democratic voters here has a wider ideological range, and they are diverse economically. The Vermont Senator will have to stretch his message to try to convince the party faithful in the Feb. 20 caucuses, according to Eric Herzik, political science department chair at the University of Nevada, Reno.
