Bernie Sanders & Donald Trump won in New Hampshire big, very big tonight.
With just over 40% of the vote, the socialist Sanders beat Hillary Clinton by 20 points while Trump won the GOP primary by greater than a 2:1 margin over John Kasich (34% to 16%). Jeff Lord is no doubt ecstatic. Ted Cruz, Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio are fighting for third place. Chris Christie will finish 6th with 8% of the vote and won’t be invited to the debate in South Carolina on Saturday, but he did plenty of damage to Rubio. Carly Fiorina and Ben Carson finished with 4% and 2%, respectively.
Is this the beginning of Trump running the table? Maybe so. Especially if Cruz, Rubio, Kasich and Bush are all bunched up. But I think Yoko Ono is going to put a stop to Trump using “Revolution” at his campaign rallies. I And what about Bernie? Tomorrow, he kisses Al Sharpton’s ring. Will it be enough to take the black vote in South Carolina?
Who would have thought a year ago that Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump would have not only won the New Hampshire Primary, but by double digits?
It’s been a crazy political year and it has only just begun.
