- Hillary Clinton won the Democratic contest by a whisker - 49.8% to 49.6%
- Fiery conservative Texas Senator Ted Cruz sweeps to victory in Iowa's Republican caucuses
- A humbled Donald Trump comes second and Marco Rubio an impressive third
- Candidates are campaigning in New Hampshire for the next contest
- Less religious: New Hampshire voters are typically less socially conservative than those in Iowa. Abortion and gay rights, major issues among Iowa Republicans, take a backseat to economic concerns in the Granite state. Evangelical voters - a major source of support for Ted Cruz - make about 20% of the New Hampshire electorate. (In Iowa, the figure is 50%.) Advantage: Donald Trump and seen as more moderate on social issues, the establishment Republicans (Marco Rubio, Jeb Bush, John Kasich and Chris Christie) are betting on a strong finish here.
- More affluent: The median income in New Hampshire is $65,028, making it one of the richest states in the US. Iowa's median income is $52,229. In polling and in Iowa, Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders have drawn support from less affluent voters. Advantage: Hillary Clinton and the "establishment" Republicans.
- Even whiter: One area where Iowa and New Hampshire don't differ much is race. The Granite state is 94% white while Iowa is 92% white. Hillary Clinton's deep support among minority voters will not help her here. Advantage: Bernie Sanders.
