Notes On New Hampshire

After a stunning performance in the Iowa Caucus' Senator Bernie Sanders polling results surged in New Hampshire. Polling and pundits predict a Sanders victory. Turnout will determine the end results. Hillary Clinton has campaigned for President in New Hampshire for 20 years. The good people of the state know Clinton well, many personally. Sanders lead is attributed to geography, Vermont is next door. The voters of NH take their duty seriously, there are no wild radicals in NH. Sanders lead more reflects the general unease of American voters, something the Clinton campaign seems unable to understand. Clinton's campaign employs the most experienced, most expensive staff available in American politics. They seem incapable of understanding the discontent and unease that lays like a blanket over voters and their families in our country. In a bizarre and ill advised tactic they have recently attacked Millennial women who support Sanders. That tactic has backfired wildly, drawing attention to Sanders impeccable human rights and civil rights record. If Clinton does not break 45-50% of the NH vote her campaign will be perceived as in deep trouble by voters nationwide.
Nevada caucus' will go to Sanders if there is a decent turnout. Clinton narrowly defeated Obama there in 2008. With that loss for Clinton the voters of South Carolina will be forced to give Bernie Sanders a serious look. In South Carolina Sanders already holds a narrow lead with white Democratic primary voters. As more African American South Carolina politicians study the candidates and endorse Sanders that state may come into contention. If the results there are close it will be time for Clinton to seriously consider abdicating the race to Sanders. This would give the Democratic party the candidate that the voters desire. And, would give the candidate and the party time to heal the current, and normal, contention in the party with time to refine their platform and get the message of a different way to the voters before the general election in November, perhaps the most important election in the country since 1932.
