Donald Trump and Joe Biden won their respective primaries in New Hampshire, paving the way for a potential rematch between the former and current US Presidents in the November 2024 presidential election. In the recent New Hampshire Republican presidential primary, former President Donald Trump secured a win, while on the Democratic side, President Joe Biden emerged victorious without actively participating in the campaign.

Trump’s consecutive wins in the primary, especially following his triumph in Iowa, suggest a high probability of a rematch with Biden in the upcoming November 2024 presidential election. Despite efforts by Nikki Haley, the former governor of South Carolina and Trump’s rival, to pull off an upset in this pivotal state, she ultimately secured a second-place finish. The unfolding political landscape hints at a compelling and closely contested electoral battle in the months to come. After 14% of the ballots were counted, Trump received 52.3% of the vote versus Haley’s 46.6%, according to Edison Research, as reported by news agency Reuters.

Meanwhile, in the New Hampshire Democratic primary, Biden achieved success as a write-in candidate—his name wasn’t on the ballot, and he didn’t actively campaign in the state. This occurred despite Democrats deviating from party rules by conducting their primary election in this significant state ahead of South Carolina, as reported by the Associated Press. Trump made history by becoming the first Republican to win both New Hampshire and Iowa, where he prevailed by an unprecedented margin last week. These two crucial states set the setting for the contest between the front-runners for the White House.

Along with being the first one-on-one contest between Trump and Haley, the New Hampshire primary also marked the withdrawal of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, who was formerly considered to be Trump’s opponent and endorsement of the former US President. Haley plans to battle hard in her home state of South Carolina on February 24th, the next primary, despite the defeat. The former UN envoy was predicted to put up a strong battle and might have a chance to defeat Trump and win a state after finishing third in Iowa, close behind DeSantis.

Although Trump emerged victorious in New Hampshire, exit polls suggest potential challenges in his election campaign. The former president is currently grappling with four sets of criminal charges, encompassing his attempts to overturn the 2020 election, where he faced defeat, and allegations of paying hush money to an adult star to suppress information about his purported affair with her.

Edison’s exit poll revealed that nearly half of the Republican primary voters expressed doubts about Trump’s fitness to serve if he were to be convicted of his offenses in a court of law.

While Edison predicted Biden’s victory in the New Hampshire Democratic primary, more over two-thirds of Republican primary voters said the American economy was either poor or bad, according to Reuters.
