New Hampshire Primary Open Thread. Update!

Okay so here we go again.

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.

    Some of the polls do not close until 8 pm. And from the looks of those lines, the voting might be going on until 9 pm. As we speak, there are people stuck in traffic in Merrimack that will be allowed to vote.

    And this is why New Hampshire deserves its spot as First in the Nation. They show up to vote. In Iowa, they had "record" turnout with only 20% of the electorate coming out to vote.

    In New Hampshire, they might get as high as 70% tonight. Now, that is Democracy with a capital D.

      I liked the guy in the yellow jacket (I was watching MSNBC because I like Maddow, the others not so much LO'D is a Hillary hater) who had been watching the MSNBC reporting and he drove to the location of the guy reporting about the picture IDs that were being done on site by those registering tonight to vote and didn't have a photo ID. The guy was a NH state representative and disagreed with the new law that stated the need for photo ID. There had only been 5 people tonight who had to have the photo taken on site, one of the 5 was this representative's wife who was doing it as a protest vote.

    MSNBC is calling the race by naming 'their' projected winners when there are people still in line to vote.

      Relax haters, Clinton called Bernie to concede as soon as the polls closed at 8. MSNBC was just reporting the news because, well, it's the news.

    HEY!! The Screechy Wretch(tm) got 33 write-in votes in New Hampshire!!!! SHE'S ON HER WAY!!! USA!!! USA!! USA!!!


    Oops. I misread the chart. The 33 write-in votes are for someone named Vermin Supreme and until we get confirmation we don't know for sure if that's going to count for Screechy. It's on the Dem side, so possibly not....

    Stay tuned, it's going to be a long night in Alaska. And New Hampshire, also too.

    1. Anonymous4:53 PM

      Uh no. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vermin_Supreme

      My 17 year old fortunately not able to vote yet, for a really good reason, like judgment and reason, and undeveloped pre-frontal cortex, supports Vermin.

    2. Anonymous5:06 PM

      thanks for the info, 453, but I would still very much like to believe that the handful of Mr. and/or Mrs. Vermin Supreme voters were, in fact, subconsciously expressing their support for Screechy.

      You realize Sanders is younger than Nelson Mandela was when he ran for President of South Africa. Was he too old? And why isn't Hilary too old? Because the 5 years that separate her and Sanders makes all the difference in the world?

      I think Anita Winecooler has a good point. There was no horse race AT ALL. In fact, the republican establishment were left without a horse entirely.

      I turned off the news early as well. Who wants to watch the same news repeated all night long with a bunch of talking heads rambling. A good election horse race is like a close football game with a lot of action. Look at the Superbowl. BORING!

    I thought that was only for Dems?
    tRump may have got a bump but it won't be long. The Bernie thing is maybe some R's voted for him? Rove has been pushing for Bernie b/c they feel its going to be easier to win against the Berm.
    I will vote for which ever one gets in. People don't understand that Bernie promises all this stuff, but unless we change congress and get the Senate he will be in the same SOS as potus! These so called "progressives" rale about how Obama didn't do this or that, he has done alot considering how the deck is stacked against doing anything right now. Hell the Supreme court just shot down carbon tax or something, they fucked up as usual. These progressives better vote in all the elections not just the presidential one.
