Clinton wins New Hampshire

That's good enough for me, I went through the numbers enough to call it for Clinton.


It's over but for counting the delegates.


Time to watch Elizabeth and John Edwards speak and then sign off.

Update [2008-1-8 22:26:49 by Jerome Armstrong]:

I love John Edwards intro song, "this is our country". We all sang it along with Cougar in Des Moines. Edwards got 17 percent, so he racks up delegates in New Hampshire. "48 states to go", says Edwards. Ready to go!

AP calls if for Clinton too.

I wonder why the women of IA

went to Obama in such large numbers compared to the women of NH. I suspect that the women of NH, which has already elected women to every major elective office, were more excited about the idea of a woman president.

Note to Obama fans: pride comes before a fall.

desmoinesdem,

don't know. Good question. NH rejected that.

Re: I wonder why the women of IA

More college-aged women, many from Illinois perhaps?

Re: I wonder why the women of IA

College age still went for Obama.  If it's "young women," which seems to be teh case, then it's the 25 - 44 year olds.

Re: I wonder why the women of IA

But I think there are many more college women in IA than NH.

Re: I wonder why the women of IA

I'd suspect age is a factor. The "woman vote" isn't monolithic, of course, and Obama did really, really well among younger women in Iowa. The NH electorate today was older than the IA electorate was.

And, of course, the incredibly unfair and sexist treatment of Clinton's "crying" episode ...

Re: I wonder why the women of IA

I take that back ... looking over it, Barack got the same percentage of the votes of women as he got in Iowa, but Edwards got much less, all of it going to Clinton.

So Edwards cratering among women is an interesting story ...

Let's hope at least that poll is right.

Re: Clinton wins New Hampshire

Well, she's already won tonight regardless of what the final percentages are.  Jerome is certainly correct on that note.  

I suspect we could be in for a relatively drawn out primary at this point.  Which, in the final analysis, may not be a bad thing.  Coronations, even if they're for my preferred candidate, are rarely a good thing.

Re: Clinton wins New Hampshire
Unfortunately For A.A candidates polls usually dont tell the true picture.  Black candidates historically dont perform as well as their poll numbers.  People that claim they are going to vote for them in polls often don't.  This is reality. Not saying this is necessarily what happened, but guys the facts or the facts...
Peace and God bless.

Re: Clinton wins New Hampshire

I don't think this was race issue. I really think this had more to do with women who really turned out for HRC in this race.

Re: Clinton wins New Hampshire

This has been historically true but it didn't hold in 2006 for either Deval Patrick or Harold Ford both whom polled very close to what they got.  Maybe 2006 was an aberation or something else was going in NH today.

Regardless, there is a race for the nomination which is good.  I am not much into coronations.

A long primary...

would be a good thing for Democrats. Keeps the names in the media much longer. Any media is good media. (Except if you kill someone or something you know...that can be a little bit of a downer)

Re: Clinton wins New Hampshire

Based on which precincts aren't in and on what Todd said about Hanover, I'm still sticking with Obama winning it narrowly.

Re: Clinton wins New Hampshire

Concord at 100% and HRC closed to within 4%. Nashua going bug for her and still at only 55% counted. 25% still to go in Manchester and she is winning big.

This may be a little too much to ask for....

Re: The George Constanza Election

This election is going to be great.

McCain can talk about how he was tortured; then Hillary can start talking about how everybody's picking on her.

It'll be like the time George Constanza had to compete with another guy for an apartment by seeing who had the most pathetic story.

Re: Clinton wins New Hampshire

Pretty sure that Clinton supporters went under ground the past five days. No TV, no blogs and  definantly no pollsters. Atleast I did. That may explain the drop in poll numbers not, uh um, adding up.

by ND1979 2008-01-08 05:31PM | 0 recs
She's holding her percentage.

It's been between 2 and 4% now for over two hours. Unless she's completely died in Hanover and there aren't any women over 25 within thirty miles I think she's home.

I did my research, Shirley Chisholm is the first women and first African-American to win a presidential primary. She won New Jersey with 66% of the vote. How could we forget Chisholm?

Clinton wins NV (It's Clinton country) and Obama wins SC....though as we all saw, elections change just like THAT so who knows what may happen tomorrow, much less a week from now!

Are you sure? The media is saying 8 for O and 8 for C none for E

What do you know?

by kevin22262 2008-01-08 06:08PM | 0 recs
I think I answered my own question

They list the *'s as pledged delegates (whatever that is). 27 total delegates & 5 super delegates. So what is the total to each?

By the way, Thank you for the delegate counters. More people need to see these so they stop with all this band wagon and inevitability crap.

Will Kos put them up at DailyKos?
