Follow the New Hampshire primary live

First place didn’t seem in doubt on the Republican and Democratic sides: Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders held commanding leads in recent polling. But as New Hampshire voters headed to the polls Tuesday in the nation’s second round of presidential nominating contests, questions abounded:

Who would finish second, third, fourth and fifth in the Republican voting? The answers could reshuffle the Republican race heading to South Carolina. For Ted Cruz, second place could make him the man to beat in the next race. If he slides to fourth or fifth, he’ll have his work cut out.

Among the Democrats, a closer-than-expected second place finish for Hillary Clinton would give her a boost heading to South Carolina. On the other hand, Sanders could parlay a blowout into a formidable national campaign.
