New Hampshire Votes

New Hampshire began voting at midnight. Joe Biden has already left for South Carolina. Sanders is expected to win. How will Amy and Pete do? Or Elizabeth Warren? Is Andrew Yang finished? It looks like all the media wants to write about is Bloomberg.

    reporting that electorate is older and less liberal than in 2016. Supposedly that is bad news for Sanders. I guess we shall see.

    And Biden is 5 it's not good for either.  Third would be good for Amy.   Second would be rocket fuel.  

    No kidding. (none / 0) (#5)

    If Amy can pull off 2nd it would be rocket fuel. Bernie may not even win by much.

    It looks like Pete and Amy (none / 0) (#6)

    Are splitting the middle lane right down the middle

    That's good news for Bernie.

    by Ga6thDem on Tue Feb 11, 2020 at 07:26:59 PM EST
    candidates yeah but with only three Bernie would not be winning. If 25-30% is the best he can do even with 2 other candidates he is going to lose.

    That's (none / 0) (#10)
    by FlJoe on Tue Feb 11, 2020 at 07:34:14 PM EST
    been the good news for Bernie for the whole cycle.

    The Bad news is he isn't pulling away from anybody. Despite Warrens fade he is not out-preforming his poll numbers.


    Bernie (none / 0) (#13)

    by FlJoe on Tue Feb 11, 2020 at 07:52:23 PM EST
    will be splitting 24 delegates roughly in thirds, big deal. Bernie should get 9 maybe 10, statistically insignificant by a long shot.

    I think they both stay in Warren for a last chance
    miracle in Nevada. Biden more pathetically waiting
    longer for his miracle in SC.  


    Biden deserves this loss (none / 0) (#14)

    Down goes Biden, down goes Biden, down goes Biden!!!

    For months, an army of clueless, slobbering, Biden worshiping pundits kept insisting that he was the safe choice and the only Democrat who could beat Trump.  It's gratifying to see a plurality of Iowa and New Hampshire voters telling these pundits to take a hike.

    Somewhere men and women are laughing, somewhere children shout;
    but there's no joy in Punditville --Uncle Joe's unbeatable campaign juggernaut has gone lights out

    While it's great that Biden is on the path to political oblivion, it's infuriating that Sanders is doing so well.  For the good of the nation, Warren, Klobuchar, and Buttigieg need to cut a deal in which 2 of them drop out endorse the third candidate and hopefully that person will gain enough support to stop Sanders dead in his tracks.

    Sanders (5.00 / 1) (#16)
    by Ga6thDem on Tue Feb 11, 2020 at 08:33:40 PM EST
    really isn't doing that well. He repels voters and has lost most of his voters from 2016. So far he's won one primary and probably is now tied with Pete for delegates. Biden will still hang on waiting for SC but Warren has nowhere to win at this point.

    Well NH (none / 0) (#15)
    by Ga6thDem on Tue Feb 11, 2020 at 08:17:01 PM EST
    turned into the Pete and Amy show. Amy really pulled the shocker simply because she was in single digits in polling. Pete was already polling close to Bernie.

    Bernie's (none / 0) (#17)
    by Ga6thDem on Tue Feb 11, 2020 at 08:44:07 PM EST
    lead is shrinking to the point that he is underperforming by about 4 points now.

    Bernie and Pete (none / 0) (#18)
    by Ga6thDem on Tue Feb 11, 2020 at 09:04:23 PM EST
    separated by 4K votes with strong Pete areas yet to come in. Bernie may not end up winning NH after all.

    Pete's performance (none / 0) (#19)
    by KeysDan on Tue Feb 11, 2020 at 09:07:48 PM EST
    is really impressive.  But, apparently, number 3 is the new number 2.

    Pete just congratulated Bernie on how well he did, saying, "I admired Bernie Sanders when I was in high school, and ..." Ouch.

    by KeysDan on Thu Feb 13, 2020 at 03:00:04 PM EST
    Bernie some shade, but he really did admire Bernie when in high school.  As a senior at St. Joseph High School in South Bend, Pete was the first place winner of the national John F. Kennedy Presidential Library Profile in Courage Essay Contest, for the year 2000.

    Then Congressman Bernie Sanders (I.VT) was the 18-year old Pete's subject of his essay on profiles in courage, describing Congressman Sanders as an "outstanding and inspiring example of integrity."

    by Ga6thDem on Tue Feb 11, 2020 at 09:11:10 PM EST
    has more to do with the fact that Amy was polling at like 5% and is probably going to end up with around 20%.
