Of course, Trump and Sanders also won their primaries, for whatever that's worth.
Clinton and Rubio were the biggest losers. Rubio was expected to surge into second place after his better-than-expected Iowa performance. New Hampshire at best interrupts his momentum, at worst confirms that Christie's attack in the last debate--probably the single most effective attack against a major candidate ever launched--was as destructive for Rubio as everyone thought. As for Clinton, for someone who not long ago was supposed to win all the primaries without much trouble, the tie in Iowa and loss in New Hampshire represents a pretty serious upset.
