An inside look at how the Sanders campaign pulled off their New Hampshire win.
Though Sanders’s 2016 campaign had a reputation for attracting a disproportionately white coalition, that has changed in a big way this time around. Younger voters and people of color may be the key to Sanders’s path to the nomination. A New Hampshire victory only helps him get there.
“If Sanders keeps winning, I could see Democrats in other states getting on board,” said University of New Hampshire political science professor Dante Scala. “I feel like we were saying the same thing about Trump four years ago, there was a ceiling. The more you win, the better that argument becomes.”
Bernie Sanders won ALL of the 7 largest cities in New Hampshire. That’s organizing.

But the real news is Amy finished third. Haven’t ya heard? So that’s the new horse the establishment is backing. I am sure the “bernie bros” will oppose her because of misogyny.

New Hampshire has a completely open primary, so both independents and Republicans could vote in the Democratic primary. This is why Bloomberg won Dixville Notch–registered Republicans wrote in Bloomberg. Apparently, New Hampshire also makes it harder for college students to register to vote.
Once again, if there was any rigging, it is apparent that the DNC is capable of rigging only 5% or so. If the polls were accurate and Bernie actually won by 7 points, then they succeeded in taking away 5 points and he won by two.
I may have hit upon a formula here. We’ll see how it holds up on Super Tuesday; if it does.

..born 1955,right in the heart of it,but my generation and I got amicably divorced around 1980 or so and then the divorce turned bitter and became final in 2016.
I no longer consider myself a member of a generation that so totally embraced both the Clintons and that Russiagate crapola.
And that’s why I say Bernie or Bust!
