Despite having no clear challenger for the Republican Party’s primary in New Hampshire Tuesday night, President Trump more than doubled Barack Obama’s tally in 2012; indicating the GOP is “fired-up” heading into 2020.
“With 87 percent of precincts reporting, Trump secured more than 120,000 votes in the Granite State. In 2012, Obama managed just 49,080 total votes in New Hampshire. The gap between the two presidents is likely to increase as more precincts report their totals Wednesday,” reports Fox News.
“It also dwarfs the total of other incumbent presidents: then-President George W. Bush received 53,962 votes in the largely-uncontested GOP primary in New Hampshire in 2004. And in 1996, incumbent President Bill Clinton received 76,797 votes in New Hampshire’s primary,” adds Fox.
With approximately 54% of precincts reporting, President Trump has already received more votes than Presidents Barack Obama (49,080), George W. Bush (52,962) and Ronald Reagan (65,033) in their respective re-election New Hampshire Primaries.

With ~80% reporting, Trump is at 85.6% of the vote in the New Hampshire GOP primary, approaching the modern record for an incumbent of 86.43% set by Ronald Reagan in 1984.

“Nine months from now, we are going to retake the House of Representatives, we are going to hold the Senate, and we are going to keep the White House,” Trump told the crowd at a campaign rally in the Granite State Monday night. “We have so much more enthusiasm, it’s not even close. They’re all fighting each other.”

BERNIE: ‘Reproductive Rights’ in Third World Countries Needed to Combat ‘Climate Catastrophe’
Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders doubled-down on his fiery rhetoric regarding a potential “climate catastrophe” during CNN’s town hall event Wednesday; saying “reproductive rights” of women around the planet is a key component in combating global warming.
“Empowering women to curb population growth seems reasonable to enact. Would you be courageous enough to discuss this issue and make it a key feature of a plan to address climate catastrophe?” asked an audience member.
“The answer is yes. Women have a right to control their own bodies and make reproductive decisions… In poor countries around the world, where women do not want to have large numbers of babies, where they can have the opportunity to use birth control to control the number of kids they have, is something I very strongly support,” said Sanders.
Democrat Voter: There are too many humans on earth.
Bernie: I agree. We need to fund abortions to poor, third world countries.

Sanders comments come hours after he abruptly snapped at a crying baby in New Hampshire; demanding the child “keep it down” while discussing universal health care.
The self-described Democratic Socialist’s reaction left many in attendance surprised, with some shocked at his insensitive behavior.
The video emerged on social media hours after Sanders labeled President Trump the “worst president in the history” of the United States on ‘The View.’
“I love Nancy but she and I disagree on this issue,” Sanders said. “I think the way you beat Donald Trump — and I must say that in my view, Donald Trump is the most dangerous president probably in the history of this country.”
“I work[ed] with your dad, I work with other people on issues where we can come together,” he told co-host Meghan McCain. “That’s what I think American politics is supposed to be about. But you have a president today – and again, it gives me no joy to say this – he is a pathological liar.”
"He's a pathological liar," Bernie Sanders tells @TheView about Trump.
"And when people ask me what do you think about what Trump said 5 minutes ago in a tweet? I say 'I'm not going to say anything because 5 minutes from now he's going to change is view'" https://t.co/MgPU9WoNx0 pic.twitter.com/PKjirqY0ae

GRAHAM SLAM! Lindsey Graham Says NH Primary Highlighting ‘the Demise of the Democratic Party’
Senator Lindsey Graham slammed the 2020 Democratic contenders Tuesday morning; saying the New Hampshire primary is revealing the total “demise of the Democratic Party.”
“The president’s in a spot where he really can’t lose as this plays out,” Graham said on Tuesday. “[Former Vice President Joe] Biden’s going to win South Carolina, you’re going to have three different winners in the first three states.”
“On Super Tuesday, I think [billionaire and former New York City mayor Mike] Bloomberg is going to make a real dent. He’s going to make a real presence,” he continued. “You’re going to go to this convention with Biden basically collapsed. Somebody’s going to fill that lane, it’s not going to be [Democratic Sen.] Amy Klobuchar, it’s going to be Bloomberg.”
“It’s going to help President Trump get reelected,” he concluded.
