Socialist Bernie Sanders Destroyed Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire by 60% – 38% … So Why Are They Leaving the Granite State With a Similar Number of Delegates?

WHEN IS A 22 POINT WIN NOT A WIN … WHEN ITS DEMOCRAT POLITICS OF COURSE.

Self proclaimed socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders destroyed the establishment, super pac candidate Hillary Clinton in the New Hampshire Democrat primary Tuesday night by 22 points. At the end of the evening the vote count of the people of New Hampshire was Sander 60% and Clinton 38%. But get this, after the embarrassing butt kicking Clinton took at the hands of a 74 year old socialist, Hillary Clinton may actually come out ahead in the delegate count due to the pre-pledged support of superdelegates. I guess this is what Bernie Sanders was talking about with regards the political process being rigged? Hey Bernie, instead of always whining about campaign money, you might want to look at how delegates are allocated in the Democrat party. Before the primary even began Hillary was ahead with delegates, Clinton came into the contest with the support of six superdelegates, who are state party insiders given the freedom to support any candidate they choose. And you wonder why the people hate the process. As Legal Insurrection opines … It’s how DEM-ocracy works.

What Difference Does it Make if I lose by 22 points, I still win …

Sen. Bernie Sanders handily defeated former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in the New Hampshire primary on Tuesday, but she may come out of the state on top in the delegate count due to the pre-pledged support of superdelegates.

Here’s why: New Hampshire has 24 Democratic delegates distributed based on the number of votes each candidate receives.

According to the Associated Press, the Vermont senator earned at least 13 of the Democratic delegates with 60 percent of the vote in the Granite State. Because New Hampshire isn’t a winner-take-all state, Clinton won at least nine delegates with her 38 percent of the vote. A remaining two delegates have yet to be determined based on popular vote totals, according to AP.

But New Hampshire also has eight Democratic “superdelegates” — party insiders who aren’t bound by the popular vote outcome and can support any candidate they choose. Six of the superdelegates said before Tuesday night’s voting that they plan to support Clinton at the Democratic National Convention in July.

That support isn’t binding, though — superdelegates can switch candidates between now and the convention.

Clinton’s Granite State superdelegates include New Hampshire Democratic lawmakers Gov. Maggie Hassan, Sen. Jeanne Shaheen and Rep. Annie Kuster, according to The Hill. One of the undecided superdelegates is Ray Buckley, chairman for the New Hampshire Democratic Party, who was barred by state party rules from selecting a candidate prior to the primary in an effort to maintain neutrality.

Bernie Sanders Prevails and G.O.P. Has 3-Way Tie as 3 New Hampshire Towns Vote.

The results are in.

Or, at least, the first results from the tiny New Hampshire towns — Dixville Notch, Millsfield and Hart’s Location — that practice the time-honored tradition of voting at midnight to claim the distinction of casting the election’s first primary ballots.

Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont emerged as the Democrats’ big winner of the wee hours on Tuesday, with 17 votes in total, while Hillary Clinton received nine.

On the Republican side, Senator Ted Cruz of Texas, Donald J. Trump and Gov. John Kasich of Ohio each had nine votes.

In the early, early voting it would appear that Bernie Sanders has raced out to a 17-9 lead over Hillary Clinton.

As for the Republicans it is a much tighter race as Ted Cruz, Donald Trump and John Kasich all have 9 votes a piece, followed by Christie with 3, Bush 2, Rubio 2 and Carson and Fiorino with 1.

NH PRIMARIES 2016: Dixville Notch, NH Has Voted: Sanders & Kasich With Early Lead

NH PRIMARIES 2016: EARLY VOTE HAS BEEN COUNTED IN DIXVILLE NOTCH …

Just after 12 ‘o clock midnight, the polls opened in the tiny town of Dixville Notch. With all of the vote counted in Dixville Notch, Bernie Sanders defeats Hillary Clinton in a landslide, 4-0. Meanwhile for the Republicans it was a much tighter race as Ohio Gov. John Kasich garnered 3 votes and Donald Trump came in second with 2 votes. Here is an interesting tidbit, it was a second straight shutout loss for Mrs. Clinton, who also failed to get a single Dixville Notch vote in the 2008 primary. Hmm, is this a sign of things to come for Hillary in New Hampshire and the primaries as a whole? Dixville Notch is about 20 miles from the border with Canada and has 9 registered voters who are mostly employees of the Balsams Grand Resort Hotel.

dixville-notch

won the most Republican votes in Dixville Notch early Tuesday morning, while Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders won all the Democratic votes.

Kasich came away with three while business mogul Donald Trump won two. On the Democratic side, Sanders received four.

The results are a welcome sign for Kasich, whose campaign said he actively reached out to all nine voters who voted early Tuesday near the Canadian border in the first balloting of the New Hampshire primary.

The small groups of voters in the communities of Dixville Notch, Hart’s Location, and Millsfield all participated today in the idealized New Hampshire tradition of voting en masse at midnight when polls open. The votes of those communities — particularly Dixville Notch — are given outsize importance as predictors of who will go on to larger victories in the presidential race.

From This Week: Why are these voters able to cast their ballots so early? Under New Hampshire law, communities that have fewer than 100 voters can open their polls at midnight and close them once registered voters have cast their ballots, The Boston Globe reports. All nine voters in Dixville Notch are employees of the Balsams Grand Resort Hotel, and they voted inside a building on the property.

Poll Conducted by the Pro-John Kasich New Day for America Super PAC Shows Rubio Falling to 4th

THIS POLL SHOULD NOT SURPRISE ANYONE AFTER RUBIO’S TERRIBLE DEBATE PERFORMANCE ...

As reported by the Politico, a poll conducted by the Pro-John Kasich New Day for America Super PAC shows Marco Rubio falling after his disastrous debate performance. Donald Trump still has a commanding first place lead; however, is a mad scramble. With just one day left before the New Hampshire primaries, it should be interesting how this plays out. This may just turn out to be the RINO primary.

An internal poll conducted on Sunday suggests that Marco Rubio’s fumbled debate performance has damaged his prospects heading into the New Hampshire primary.

The poll, conducted by the pro-John Kasich New Day for America Super PAC, shows Rubio plummeting to fourth place in the primary here, with 10 percent of the vote. Most of the polling conducted in the immediate days before the debate showed Rubio in second place.

The survey, which was based on phone calls to 500 likely voters (margin of error plus or minus 3 percent), was conducted Sunday, the day following the latest Republican debate. Rubio came under scathing attack from Chris Christie, who cast the first term Florida senator as too unready, ambitious, and superficial to occupy the Oval Office.

Donald Trump holds a wide lead in the survey, receiving 35 percent. He more than doubles runner-up Kasich, who has 15 percent. In third is Jeb Bush, with 13 percent. Behind Rubio in fifth and sixth place, respectively, are Christie and Ted Cruz. Both receive 8 percent.

Although, why any one would vote for Kasich is puzzling.

GOP New Hamphire Debate 2/6/16: OUCH, Gov. Christie Destroys Sen. Rubio on Lack of Leadership Comparing to Obama … “Do not make the same mistake” (VIDEO)

NEW JERSEY GOV. CHRIS CHRISTIE DESTROYED MARCO RUBIO LAST NIGHT ON LACK OF LEADERSHIP …

During last nights debate on ABC News ahead of Monday’s 2016 New Hampshire primaries, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie was a once man wrecking crew and laid waste to the new found darling establishment candidate, Sen. Marco Rubio. Christie lambasted Rubio on being ill prepared to be president of the United States. Christie stated that being a Senator does not prepare one to be president, whereas when one is a governor, they need to make decisions that impact the people who elected them and are held accountable for those decisions.

Rubio_Christie debate 020616

Check out the look Rubio gave Christie during this exchange

Things got started when Rubio was asked to respond to Christie’s allegation that, after experiencing the presidency of Barack Obama, who was elected as a first-term U.S. senator, it would be especially unfortunate if the Republican Party were itself to nominate Marco Rubio, a first term U.S. senator, for the White House. “Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me,” Christie had said (bettering his former benefactor, George).

Rubio’s comeback was pretty good, if a little obvious in its intent: He argued that experience was overrated; if it mattered, Vice President Joe Biden would be a good candidate for commander-in-chief. He then argued that an unspoken premise of the criticism — that Obama has failed in part due to his inexperience — is faulty. Obama knows exactly what he’s doing, Rubio said. The president is not a fool; he’s a menace.

Christie wasn’t having it, dismissing Rubio’s Biden straw man and recommitting to his initial attack. Rubio’s a nice guy, a smart guy, Christie said; but the simple fact is that he’s never had to make an important decision. This got a noticeable round of applause from the audience. And perhaps that’s why Rubio then proceeded to self-destruct.

 

Christie stated with regards to Rubio, “you have not been involved in a consequential decision where you had to be held accountable, you just simply haven’t.” Christie followed up with, “the fact is, when you talk about the Hezbollah sanctions act that you list as one of your accomplishments, you weren’t even there to vote for it.” Then Christie crushed Rubio with the fact that he didn’t even show to vote with … “that’s not leadership, that’s truancy”.

Christie then did the most damning thing he could do to Rubio, compared the Florida senator to the 1st term 2008 Sen. Barack Obama and his lack of experience for the job and what that has gotten us. Christie provided the following backhanded compliment, “I like Marco Rubio and he’s a smart person and a good guy. But he simply does not have the experience to be president of the United States and make these decisions. We have watched it happen everybody for the last 7 years. The people of New Hampshire are smart, do not make the same mistake again.” OUCH!!!

CNN/WMUR Poll: Socialist Bernie Sanders Trouncing Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire

THIS IS INSANE … A SOCIALIST IS DESTROYING HILLARY CLINTON IN NEW HAMPSHIRE ...

According to the most recent CNN/WMUR poll, Bernie Sanders, a self-proclaimed socialist, leads Hillary Clinton by a whopping 27 points in New Hampshire, 60% to 33%. Holy Cow!!! Are you kidding? Sorry, but Trump may not be the story in the 2016 race, but instead Sanders. It may be the Democrats who are scrambling for a last second candidate for president if Sanders keeps this momentum up. Is it possible that Clinton has a better shot of beating Trump than Sanders? That’s what a recent Monmouth poll says. Think about what that says about Democrat primary voters. Just how far LEFT have Democrats gone and how damaged a candidate is Hillary Clinton?

FEEL THE BERN!!!

Bernie Sanders2

Bernie Sanders’ lead over Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire is on the rise, with the Vermont senator leading the former secretary of state by 27 points, 60% to 33%, a new CNN/WMUR poll has found.

The new poll, mostly conducted before Sunday night’s debate, found Sanders’ support has grown by 10 points since a late-November/early December CNN/WMUR poll, which found Sanders holding 50% to Clinton’s 40%.

New Hampshire Democrats’ views on the race are solidifying as well, with 52% saying they have definitely decided who they will support, up from 36% who felt that way in early December. Among those voters, Sanders holds an even broader 64% to 35% lead.

Donald Trump Up big in New Hampshire and Socialist Bernie Sanders Leads Hillary Clinton

ESTABLISHMENT REPUBLICANS IS DISBELIEF AT TRUMPMENTUM …

In the latest PPP poll in New Hampshire, Donald Trump has pulled away from the GOP field leaving them in his dust. The New Hampshire primary is still a long ways away and not until February 9, 2015, but The Donald is doing his best to crush the competition. Much ti the disbelief and puzzlement of the establishment and GOP machine. It is starting to be become very obvious that that Republicans voters are sick and tired of the lying politicians that have stabbed the electorate one too many times. Look at who is either leading in the polls or surging, its Donald Trump, Carly Fiorina and Ben Carson.

Donald Trump thumbs up

The Donald

PPP’s new New Hampshire poll finds Donald Trump in the strongest position of any poll we’ve done anywhere since he entered the race. Trump laps the Republican field with 35% to 11% for John Kasich, 10% for Carly Fiorina, 7% each for Jeb Bush and Scott Walker, 6% for Ben Carson, 4% each for Chris Christie, Ted Cruz, and Marco Rubio, and 3% for Rand Paul. Candidates falling outside the top ten in the state are Rick Perry at 2%, Lindsey Graham, George Pataki, and Rick Santorum at 1%, and Jim Gilmore, Mike Huckabee, and Bobby Jindal all at less than 1%. Everyone does have at least one supporter on this poll.

To give an idea of how fundamentally the contest has shifted over the last four months none of Trump, Kasich, and Fiorina weren’t even included in the horse race question when we last polled the state in April. The candidate who’s made the most cataclysmic drop is Walker- he’s gone from leading at 24% all the way down to 7% in this newest poll.

Bernie Sanders

Bernie Sanders

As for the DEMOCRATS/SOCIALIST in polling in New Hampshire, socialist Bernie Sanders leads Hillary. What the hell has the Democrat party become? No wonder Democrat political insiders are begging Joe Biden to get in the race to save the embarrassment of actually nominating a self=professed socialist as their parties standard bearer.

There’s been a big shift on the Democratic side since April as well. Bernie Sanders now leads the field in the state with 42% to 35% for Hillary Clinton, 6% for Jim Webb, 4% for Martin O’Malley, 2% for Lincoln Chafee, and 1% for Lawrence Lessig.

The main story in New Hampshire is how universally popular Sanders has become with the Democratic electorate. 78% see him favorably to only 12% with a negative opinion- that makes him easily the most popular candidate on either side with their party’s voters. Meanwhile Hillary Clinton’s favorability numbers have taken a little bit of a hit- she was at 78/10 with Democratic primary voters in April, but now she’s at a 63/25 spread.

The ideological divide is actually not that stark on the Democratic side. Sanders is ahead with ‘somewhat liberal’ voters (45/32), ‘very liberal’ ones (46/37), and moderates (40/36) alike. And although there is certainly a gender gap Sanders is ahead with both men (44/30) and women (41/38). But the real big divide we see is along generational lines- Clinton is ahead 51/34 with seniors, but Sanders has a 45/29 advantage with everyone under the age of 65.

Franklin Pierce Poll: Socialist Bernie Sanders Surges Ahead of Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire, 44% to 37%

HILLARY CLINTON #FEELS THE BERN …

Just how bad of a presidential candidate is Hillary Clinton for the Democrats? It has finally happened, the most recent Franklin Pierce poll shows that self-proclaimed socialist Bernie Sanders now leads Hillary Clinton by 7 percentage points, 44% to 37%. ARE YOU KIDDING? Hillary Clinton is considered by all as the presumptive Democrat nominee to run for president in 2016, but yet she finds herself behind in a poll to a socialist. Is it Hillary’s lack of trustworthiness not much of an issue? However, since when have Democrats cared about their presidents or candidates telling the truth, aka you can keep your doctors, if you like your doctor promise of Obamacare. Or has this email/private server scandal just pushed people from holding their nose when it comes to Clinton, to abandoning her? What would happen if Hillary Clinton actually had a viable competitor in the primaries, rather than a socialist like Sanders? Then again, no one can tell the difference anymore between the Socialist and Democrat parties these days.

Bernie Sanders

Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders has rocketed past longtime front-runner Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire, a stunning turn in a race once considered a lock for the former secretary of state, a new Franklin Pierce University/Boston Herald poll shows.

Sanders leads Clinton 44-37 percent among likely Democratic primary voters, the first time the heavily favored Clinton has trailed in the 2016 primary campaign, according to the poll of 442 Granite-Staters.

Vice President Joe Biden got 9 percent support in the test primary match-up. The other announced Democrats in the race, former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley, former Rhode Island Gov. Lincoln Chafee and former Virginia Gov. Jim Webb, barely register at 1 percent or below.

The live interview phone poll was conducted Aug. 7-10 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.7 percentage points.

Clinton is still viewed overwhelmingly by voters as the likely Democratic nominee, but the results suggest she faces an unexpectedly difficult fight to prevent an embarrassing opening loss in the first-in-the-nation primary.
