Bernie Sanders Wins New Hampshire Primary

Thursday, 13 Feb, 2020

Bernie Sanders narrowly won the Democratic New Hampshire primary Tuesday night over Pete Buttigieg - but the real surprises were the strong finish of Minnesota Sen.

Pitching herself as a pragmatist, Klobuchar is targeting former Republicans unhappy with President Donald Trump, moderate Democrats uninterested in Biden or disappointed by his early performances, and progressives who feel that her practical approach makes her more electable than Warren or Sanders. Fewer - about half - said they would be pleased if Biden became the nominee. Both candidates have declared victory, with Sanders arguing that he received more total votes than Buttigieg.

He got 15.8 percent of the vote in Iowa, but only 9 percent in New Hampshire. Also, many states allow their delegates to change candidates after the first ballot. "We're going to win those states as well".

The big picture: New Hampshire was a sort of homecoming for Sanders after he firmly won the state in the 2016 primaries against former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

"With victories behind us, popular vote in Iowa and victory here tonight, we're going to Nevada, we're going to win those states", he said. Bernie Sanders is a clear front-runner in the Granite State and continues to dominate in the state polls.

"Thanks to the team's strong showing, we raised more than $2.5 million since the polls closed", campaign manager Justin Buoen said on Twitter.

"My heart is full". "So we'd encourage you to take the model with a large grain of salt until some of that post-New Hampshire polling comes in", Silver writes.

Businessman Tom Steyer won 4 percent of the vote, and Rep. I know we're supposed to say we're going to and we're going to win.

Andrew Yang and Michael Bennett dropped out of the 2020 race on Tuesday. These voters gave a slight edge on leading the economy to Mike Bloomberg, the former New York City Mayor with a personal fortune in excess of $60 billion. This year, the delegates were divided among five Democrats.

Dismissing New Hampshire and Iowa as the "first two of 50 states", despite the fact that his campaign spent considerable time and money in the two states, Biden assured the voters that his campaign will be proven to be alive and well and in the next two primaries.

"We're staying in this fight for the people who are counting on us", Warren said Tuesday night. She referred to the 2020 campaign as an "uphill battle" and a "long fight" that's just getting started.

That said, similar to Iowa, New Hampshire voters could always throw a curveball - as a significant amount may still be undecided. We're going to SC.

Overall, at least 1,990 pledged delegates are required to win the Democratic Party nomination.
