40% of voters in New Hampshire Republican primary identified as independents as did 40% of those who voted in NH Democrat primary-NY Times, 2/10/16

40% of voters in New Hampshire Republican primary identified as independents as did 40% of those who voted in NH Democrat primary:

2/9/16, "Primary Exit Polls Show Terror Fears Aided Trump and Young Voters Helped Sanders," NY Times, John M. Broder

"More than four in 10 of those who voted in the Republican primary identified as independents, and they largely backed Mr. Trump. Only about 15 percent of voters in the Republican primary were first-time voters, compared with 12 percent in 2012. They, too, overwhelmingly supported Mr. Trump, a sign that he has succeeded in bringing new voters to the polls.

Independents accounted for four in 10 Democratic primary voters on Tuesday, and seven in 10 of them supported Mr. Sanders....

Republican voters saw Mr. Trump as the best candidate to handle an international crisis, and nine in 10 said they were somewhat worried or very worried about another terrorist attack in the United States.

With near unanimity, Republican primary voters said they were concerned about the direction of the economy in the next few years, and they overwhelmingly backed Mr. Trump, who has run on his record as a businessman and billionaire. He was also chosen by a more than two to one ratio over any other candidate as best able to handle the economy....

Mr. Trump won the voters who said they were looking for someone who can bring about change and those looking for someone who tells it as it is.

The exit polls were conducted by Edison Research for the National Election Pool and had a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 4 percentage points for Republican and Democratic primary voters."
