The Vermont senator was looking to rebound from his narrow Iowa loss with a big victory over former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
New Hampshire was considered a must-win if he's to have a chance of staying competitive with Clinton as the race moves to more diverse states that are seen as more hospitable to the former first lady.
Today's vote marked the 100th anniversary of the first-in-the-nation primary.
Since 1952, only three candidates have lost the New Hampshire primary and gone on to be elected president of the United States: Bill Clinton in 1992, George W. Bush in 2000 and Barack Obama in 2008.
Up next for the candidates, Nevada holds its Democratic caucus on Feb. 20, followed by South Carolina's Democratic primary on Feb. 27.
On March 1, it's Super Tuesday, when Democrat voters in Alabama, American Samoa, Arkansas, Colorado, Georgia, Massachusetts, Minnesota, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, and Virginia will cast their ballots.
