Trump quietly sweeps victory in New Hampshire

Trump may have divided the Republican party back in . But now it’s more united than ever. The president just swept victory in the New Hampshire primary

Wouldn’t a big story be that I got more New Hampshire Primary Votes than any incumbent president, in either party, in the history of that Great State? Not an insignificant fact! – Trump.

A recent gallup poll also put Trump’s approval rating among Republicans at % . The Democrats are going into battle with fiercely united Republican party.

Stock market pricing in a Trump victory?

It’s no secret that Wall Street fancies another four years with Trump in the White House. Traders have boldly claimed the Dow would collapse up to % under Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren.

Trump’s commitment to tax cuts and Wall Street deregulation have been a boon for the stock market. State Street’s deputy global chief investment officer, Lori Heinel says Investors are definitely pricing in Trump’s re-election

What could trigger a Dow Jones reversal?

Only a major change in momentum for the Democrats would give investors pause. But Bernie Sanders emerging as the front-runner in Iowa and New Hampshire is one warning sign.

Trump himself admitted that he’s a little nervous about Bernie securing the nomination

.

Frankly, I’d rather run against Bloomberg than Bernie Sanders… Because Sanders has real followers, whether you like him or not, whether you agree with him or not. I happen to think it’s terrible what he says. But he has followers. Bloomberg’s just buying his way in.

National polls compiled by Real Clear Politics shows that Bernie is among the best-placed to beat Donald Trump in . But investors aren’t worried yet.
