Trump Was REALLY the Big Winner in New Hampshire, Doubles Obama’s 2008 Vote

As the media focused on the battle between Democrats for this week’s New Hampshire primary, it turns out it was really Donald Trump who set the real records.

For one thing, before the night was even done, Trump had already made a record in New Hampshire.

As Trump campaign chief Brad Parscale noted, “With approximately, 70% of precincts reporting, President Trump has surpassed the New Hampshire Primary vote total of every incumbent President running for re-election over the last four decades.”

A little later, the numbers were startling:

Fox News had more:

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.

Trump also had a record crowd for his New Hampshire campaign stop.

Last Monday, Trump held a rally in Manchester, New Hampshire, at the SNHU Arena, which seats up to 11,770. Despite sub-freezing temperatures, some of his more fervent supporters camped out the night before to ensure that they got into the rally.

Once again, Parscale noted how successful the event was:

Trump made more of a splash in the nation’s first regular primary than the Democrats.
