The most significant aspect of President Trump's win in New Hampshire’s Republican primary is voter enthusiasm—a good sign for his chances of winning re-election, his campaign manager Brad Parscale said.

"In NH primary tonight, @realDonaldTrump is very likely to beat the vote percentages of the last 3 incumbent presidents who WON re-election," Parscale tweeted. "1996 Bill Clinton 84% 2004 George W. Bush 80% 2012 Barack Obama 82% Trump right now is pushing 86%. This is historic strength!"

After seeing the numbers, Trump seemed confident he would win Iowa and New Hampshire come November. 

"Fake News @CNN and MSDNC have not surprisingly refused to talk about my record setting number of voters in New Hampshire (and in Iowa). That’s why they are poorly rated Fake News! I will win both states in November," he said 

With 87.21 percent of precincts reporting, Trump won the Republican primary with 86.17 percent, while the Democratic primary was called for Sen. Bernie Sanders

“The Democrat story in New Hampshire is the continued dominance of big government socialist policies and the success of their standard bearer, Bernie Sanders,” Parscale said in a statement. “No matter which Democrat eventually emerges from their months-long dumpster fire of a primary process, we know the contrast will be President Trump’s record of accomplishment and optimistic view of the future versus Democrats and their socialist, job-killing agenda.”
