New Hampshire Primary Open Thread. Update!
Right now the polls have Bernie Sanders leading in the Democratic race, and Trump trumping his opponents in the GOP race.
I actually think that is pretty accurate, so I do not expect to be surprised by much this evening.
But having said that this is the 2016 race, so just about anything is possible.
The polls closed at 7:00 PM Eastern Standard time so the results are being tallied as we speak.
You can keep track by clicking here, or for more drama follow along on Twitter.
Update: So sorry folks I was at some appointments and not able to update the blog before now.
So yes as predicted Bernie Sanders won (By a whopping 19 points) and Hillary of course is second.
And also as predicted Donald Trump easily won as well, but more surprising is that John Kasich (Who?) came in second.
And yes since the Donald won, guess who is taking her victory lap:
NH Living Up to State Motto: "Live Free or Die"
NH competitive primary reveals this independent state's choice for a leader who will free our country from our out-of-touch government. Congratulations Donald J. Trump!
No doubt voters there asked themselves the question we should all ask before pulling the lever: Will this candidate allow me to be freer? Or not? Are his issues intended to make us freer? Or more dependent on politics-as-usual in Washington? It takes an outsider, beholden to no one but We the People, to shake it up and shake off the bureaucratic shackles that have stymied American exceptionalism.
Thank you to Granite Staters for standing solid behind our next President who'll let you make America great again!
Now, on to South Carolina - can't wait to see the energized electorate #stump4trump in the Palmetto State!
Of course Palin had nothing, and I mean NOTHING, to do with Trump's victory.
But that will certainly not stop her from lapping up any reflected glory, even though most of her supporters now spend their days lobbing insults at her on Facebook.
