The biggest news out of the New Hampshire primary is the turnout for President Trump. Over 120,000 people came out to vote for a sitting president – the most in over four decades.

The president lost New Hampshire in 2016 to Hillary Clinton, but he has a very good chance of winning it this go-round.
Democrat winners and losers
Self-described socialist Bernie Sanders finished in first place in the Democratic New Hampshire primary with 26% of the vote, only two points ahead of supposed moderate Pete Buttigieg with 24.4%. Bernie was polling with a larger lead over the weekend. Another moderate, Amy Klobuchar, beat Elizabeth Warren by 10 points and landed in third place with 20%.
The former Democrat favorite, Joe Biden, finished behind Elizabeth Warren in 5th place with 8.5%. This is the second poor showing for the former vice president, but he is counting on Nevada and South Carolina to give him a boost. Fox News contributor Chris Hahn predicts if Biden does poorly in South Carolina his campaign is over.
The Nevada caucus is on February 22nd, South Carolina holds its primary on February 29th and then Super Tuesday will be on March 3rd. Go here to get the primary and caucus schedules.
24 delegates were at stake in the New Hampshire primary. Sanders and Buttigieg each leave with 9 and Klobuchar leaves with 6. Pete Buttigieg has the most delegates heading to the Nevada caucus.
Andrew Yang and Colorado Senator Michael Bennet dropped out of the race today. Yang vowed to support the eventual Democrat candidate.
Michael Bloomberg was not on the ballot, but he is opening a campaign office in New Hampshire after the primary. He is facing some pressure for a newly discovered audio recording of him talking about the stop and frisk policy he used while mayor of New York. “Ninety-five percent of murders, murderers and murder victims fit one M.O. You can just take a description, Xerox it, and pass it out to all the cops…They are male, minorities, 16 to 25. That’s true in New York, that’s true in virtually every city…”
Oops, former Mayor Bloomberg has some ‘splaining to do.
MSNBC’s Mourning Joe
Folks on MSNBC’s Morning Joe looked pretty mournful and sad as they analyzed the results coming out of New Hampshire. Trump elicited the only real enthusiasm out of Joe Scarborough, and his discussion of Bernies “unifying” victory speech just came across as forced.
Trump is still more interesting to Democrats even when the Democrats are really the news of the day. That makes sense when the Democrat platform is “Defeat Trump.”
Good luck with that.
