Sanders Wins in New Hampshire with 26%, then Buttigieg 24%, Klobuchar 20%

Summary from the AllSides News Team

New Hampshire primary results: Bernie Sanders wins in close election over Pete Buttigieg with Amy Klobuchar an unexpectedly strong third. All other candidates fell far behind the top three with Elizabeth Warren at 9% and Biden at 8%, Tom Steyer and the rest win less than 4% each. Andrew Yang drops out of the race. Commentary congratulates Sanders with some pointing out the fact that his home state is next door and that this is a much smaller victory margin than what he earned over Hillary Clinton four years ago. Coverage across the spectrum portrayed Sanders as winning the left side of the party with Buttigieg and Klobuchar battling over moderates. The right often emphasized his Democratic Socialist party affiliation, with Fox News on cable running the headline "Socialist Wins New Hampshire". All agree the results were bad news for Elizabeth Warren. It was also a poor showing for Joe Biden who was in South Carolina pointing out, as many pundits did, that the race is still very young and these two states don't add up to much.
