GOP candidate Donald Trump and Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders came out on top at the New Hampshire primary Feb. 9.

Ohio Governor John Kasich had a second-place finish after Trump. Kasich thinks this could give him the momentum to rise in national polls. Marco Rubio blamed his tie for third place on his poor performance at the Republican debate, where New Jersey governor Chris Christie bashed him. Christie dropped out of the presidential race Feb. 10 after his sixth-place finish at the primary.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton came out more than 20 points behind Sanders. This comes after her narrow victory back in Iowa.
