Former President Donald Trump easily took the win on Jan. 23 at the New Hampshire primary, which makes the certainty of an election rematch with President Joe Biden increasingly likely.

Trump’s victory was a big blow to former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley’s campaign, where she took second place in the primary, despite Haley’s significant amounts of time and resources investing in a state that is widely known for its independent history.

Haley is the last of Trump’s big challengers in the race after Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis ended his campaign post-New Hampshire primary, and entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy ended his campaign bid after Trump’s massive win in Iowa. Haley vowed that she would not complete her campaign despite her recent defeats.

With easy victories so far, Trump is demonstrating his ability to unite the GOP firmly behind him. He has garnered support from the influential conservatives in Iowa and New Hampshire’s more moderate voters, a strength he hopes to repeat during the general election.

The ease with which Trump has won so far is astounding considering he faces over 90 criminal charges ranging from his time as a business tycoon to his time as President. Trump left the White House in 2021 after a massive insurrection took place at the U.S. capitol, which Trump is believed to have encouraged. 

Trump received 54.3% of the vote, with 176,392 votes, and received 12 delegates. Nikki Haley received 43.2% of the vote, with 140,288 votes, and gained 9 delegates. DeSantis received 0.7% of the vote, with 2,241 votes. Chris Christie received 0.5% of the vote, barely scraping out 1,000 votes.
