Billionaire Donald Trump and Senator Bernie Sanders easily swept to victory in the New Hampshire primaries, buoyed by voters clamoring for change in American politics and politicians not backed by Wall Street contributors.

Trump and Sanders entered New Hampshire as the favorites in their respective party races, the Republican and Democratic primaries. Trump appealed to conservative voters looking for a political outsider, while Sanders led with a strong following among young voters keen for a change in government as usual.
