US presidential primaries continue in New Hampshire

In the US state of New Hampshire, Democrats and Republicans will hold their second presidential primaries on Tuesday. Among the Democrats, incumbent Joe Biden has practically already been confirmed as the candidate; he has no serious competitors. Among the Republicans, former President Donald Trump could set the course for his candidacy early with a victory in New Hampshire. After Trump’s clear victory in the first primary election in Iowa, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis gave up on Sunday.

The former governor of South Carolina and former UN ambassador Nikki Haley is Trump’s last remaining competitor in New Hampshire. Trump is clearly in the lead in the polls, but Haley also has high hopes for the vote: In New Hampshire, voters registered as independents are also allowed to take part in Republican primaries, which favors moderate candidates.
