The exit polls are final for the 2016 Republican presidential primary.

Under New Hampshire election rule, independents and even Democrats can vote in the Republican primary.

Newsmax analyzed the data and here is some key takeaways:
  • Only 55 percent of Republican primary voters identified themselves as "Republican," 42 percent declaring they were "independents," and 3 percent saying they were "Democrats."
  • Donald Trump pulled a disproportionate number of voters – 45 percent – who said their highest education was high school or less.
  • Trump underperformed with voters holding a postgraduate degree – pulling just 20 percent of that vote, compared to John Kasich, who pulled 21 percent of that group.
  • Trump did much better among voters who never graduated college, grabbing 38 percent of this group, to 27 percent of college graduates who voted for him.
