Results of Tuesday’s New Hampshire Democratic primary provide little clarity in the crowded race for the party’s presidential nomination that is being dominated by socialism, chaos and a pathetic field of left-wing candidates.
Fox News projected that career politician and socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont was the narrow winner of the primary. Former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg came in a strong second, followed by Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota in third place.
Darkhorse candidates Andrew Yang and Sen. Michael Bennet of Colorado dropped out of the race Tuesday night after poor performances in New Hampshire and in the Iowa caucuses last week, but nine Democrats remain in the nomination battle, preventing any one candidate from garnering a majority of the primary votes.
Sanders’ victory tells us he is gaining momentum among a small plurality of Democratic primary and caucus voters in the opening rounds of the competition to become the Democratic nominee who will run against President Trump in November.
With 86 percent of precincts reporting, Sanders had close to 26 percent of the vote in the New Hampshire Democratic primary – a far cry from the 60 percent he received when he defeated Hillary Clinton in the Granite State in 2016. Buttigieg had just over 24 percent and Klobuchar had almost 20 percent.
