Trump, Sanders victorious in New Hampshire primariesMANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Bernie Sanders rode a wave of voter frustration with American politics to commanding victories in Tuesday's New Hampshire primaries, adding crucial credibility to their upstart candidacies.

US Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders speaks during a primary night rally in Concord, New Hampshire, on February 9, 2016Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders decisively won the presidential primaries in New Hampshire, riding a wave of anti-establishment anger in the second key test of the long, unpredictable race for the White House. Major US networks gave the Republican Trump and the self-described democratic socialist Sanders the win, confirming a deflating if expected defeat for Hillary Clinton, who put a brave face on the loss and admitted she had some work to do as the campaign moves south. On the Republican side, Ohio Governor John Kasich staked an early claim to second place, a potentially critical result for him as the GOP works out which mainstream candidate could successfully mount a challenge against the billionaire tycoon.

Democratic U.S. presidential candidate Bernie Sanders smiles after winning at his 2016 New Hampshire presidential primary night rally in ConcordBy Steve Holland and Amanda Becker MANCHESTER, N.H. (Reuters) - Riding a wave of voter anger at traditional politicians, billionaire Donald Trump won New Hampshire's Republican presidential nominating contest on Tuesday and U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont won the Democratic primary. Disenchanted with the economy and Washington politicians, voters in the first two U.S. primary voting races have responded enthusiastically to candidates for the Nov. 8 presidential election they view as outsiders. The results, though decisive, did little to clear up confusion about who would emerge as the establishment contender to Trump on the Republican side, and there were signs that the campaign of Sanders' rival, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, was defensive about her future prospects.
