Strong voter turnout in New Hampshire primary

New Hampshire voters broke the state’s 2008 record this week for the most votes cast in a New Hampshire primary election. More than 300,000 Democratic votes and roughy 156,000 Republican votes were cast on Tuesday. President Trump racked in nearly 130,000 votes in the Republican primary (in contrast, Obama won 59,449 votes in the 2012 primary), whereas Sen. Sanders registered 76,324 votes.

Bernie cult members seem more paranoid than normal. I wonder how they'll deal with his sudden failure in key primaries where the DNC has a good grip?

The failed impeachment has detonated all semblance of unity in the democratic party. With the fall of the chosen-one establishment candidate Biden, the schism between progressives and establishment democrats is complete. You folks welcomed a populist wave to wash up AOC and Tlaib and others on your shore, and now the pigeons have come home to roost--the far left is ripping away from the centrist left, and the fallout looks to be immense. Meanwhile the Republican party made the solid strategic choice to collectively hold thier nose and coalesce behind the candidate the people were clearly energized about. Now there are historic levels of unity in the party, and everything is going thier way. If the cronyism and corruption in the democratic party hadn't forced Hillary on the people last election, it'd be a whoooole different story.

These numbers show massive enthusiasm in the Republican party. Coupled with record individual donations it looks more like a landslide re-election every day.
