Bernie Sanders narrowly won the first Democratic primary election, an early success in the race to see who will oppose US President Donald Trump in the presidential election later come November.

Democratic presidential candidate former South Bend, Ind. Mayor Pete Buttigieg stands on stage with his husband Chasten Buttigieg, right, and his mother Anne Montgomery, centers at a primary night election rally in Nashua, N.H., Tuesday Feb. 11, 2020.

Pundits believe this vital constituency will start to take a serious look at Buttigieg, a virtual unknown a year ago, after his impressive top-two finishes in the opening races. With Sanders favored to win the Nevada caucus on February 22, Warren can still play a big role in this campaign, even if her distant fourth-place finish in New Hampshire appears to leave her with no viable path to the Democratic nomination.

The Vermont Senator has fended off strong challenges from Pete Buttigieg and Amy Klobuchar.

The former vice president did indeed do so poorly - a projected fifth-place finish - that he left the state before the polls closed and headed to friendlier SC, where he hopes to do better while he licks his wounds.

"This victory here is the beginning of the end for Donald Trump", Sanders said.

"In recent debates, Klobuchar has tried to paint herself as more experienced than the 38-year-old Buttigieg yet still a more youthful, energetic alternative to the former vice president", Vox notes.

But will Klobuchar carry her good-showing in New Hampshire into SC and Nevada?

While "it's important" to hear from the first two states in the Democratic primary schedule, Biden declared "we haven't heard from the most committed constituency of the Democratic Party - the African American community" and "fastest growing segment of society - the Latino community". The top of the Democratic presidential field, however, has not winnowed in any significant way following the first two contests of 2020. "We're going to Nevada, we're going to SC and we're going to win those states as well", Sanders said, touting his "unprecedented grassroots movement".
