Sanders and Trump win New Hampshire primary

quote [ Donald J. Trump and Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont harnessed working-class fury on Tuesday to surge to commanding victories in a New Hampshire primary that drew a huge turnout across the state.

The success by two outsider candidates dealt a remarkable rebuke to the political establishment, and all but guaranteed protracted, bruising races for each partys presidential nomination. ]

And by wide margins, too. Looks like people are voicing their dissatisfaction with the political status quo by firmly siding with the anti-establishment candidates.

With any luck this could be the herald to the end of the two-party system if they can both secure the nomination. At the very least the late-night talk show circuit will be very interesting for quite some time.

If you push hard enough on the extremes of the political left-right spectrum it seems you pop out at the opposite end.

Your basic Trump supporter and your basic Sanders supporter seem motivated by the same fundamental sense of injustice / feeling of dissatisfaction, differing primarily on who they feel should shoulder the blame: Mexicans or Wall Street.

Sanders makes political capital from the delusion of the educated middle class, while Trump makes bank off the anger of the NASCAR/WWE-watching demographic.
