Bernie Sanders has been projected as the winner of the New Hampshire primary, narrowly defeating Pete Buttigieg to win his first contest in the Democratic primary for President of the United States.
Decision Desk HQ was one of the first elections and polling organizations to call the moderately close election for Sanders. CBS News also called the state for Sanders shortly after 11PM Eastern time.

Sanders had been the favorite in the New Hampshire primary, being a U.S Senator in the neighboring New England state of Vermont.
Indiana corporate Democrat Pete Buttigieg also put on a strong showing, coming in a close second and even appearing to challenge Sanders for first place. As of late Tuesday night Sanders leads Buttigieg by approximately 26% to 24%.
Sanders’ first victory of the year is almost assured to send the establishment wing of the Democratic primary into a panic, as the billionaires that have controlled the party for decades face the prospect of having their wealth confiscated.
Joe Biden appears to be the clear cut ‘loser’ of the primary, being humbled by a showing in which he appears only to have taken a single-digit percentage of the vote. Biden will face serious questions about the viability of his campaign after two straight poor performances in the first two contests, and the Democratic Party’s former frontrunner may be forced to drop out if he fails to secure a strong showing in the South Carolina primary.
Andrew Yang and Michael Bennet also ended their campaigns after failing to catch on in the primary.
Amy Klobuchar was the primary’s dark horse, scoring almost 20% of the vote and over-performing her state polling.
President Donald Trump also won handily against his sole challenger in the Republican Primary, Bill Weld, taking almost 86% of the vote and showing overwhelming support for the ‘MAGA’ agenda within the Republican Party.
The battle for the Democratic nomination appears set to escalate, with a potential two-man race shaping up between Sanders and Buttigieg.

Mitt Romney Admits: Trump Likely to Be Re-Elected
Just weeks ago, Romney was voting to impeach Trump.
Mitt Romney admitted during a Munich Security Conference panel in Germany that President Donald Trump is “likely” to be re-elected on Friday.
Romney’s admission could be interpreted as a tacit admission that the Utah Republican was seeking to overturn the likely will of the American voter in the 2020 election. Romney was the only Republican to vote to convict Trump on Democratic impeachment charges, claiming he warranted removal from office for temporarily suspending foreign aid to Ukraine.
“I can tell you I think it’s likely he will get reelected, not because he’s highly popular, but because I think the Democrats are not going to nominate someone who’ll be a very effective competitor.”
Romney’s answer when asked about Trump’s re-election chances seems to suggest he believes Democrats are going to nominate Bernie Sanders. Establishment conservatives such as Romney often tend to underestimate populist political figures such as Sanders in a similar manner that they did Trump in the 2016 election. (Romney did admit that he “did not predict that President Trump would become President Trump.”)
Romney was lauded for his impeachment vote by the crowd at the annual event, a mainstay institution for the western political elite. A moderator for the panel claimed he “probably the most courageous lawmaker we have in the United States.”
The failed 2012 presidential candidate may have alienated himself even further from the Republican party with remarks that seemed dismissive of his Senate colleagues, describing them as beholden to the President.
In what may have been his most self-reflective remarks of the night, Romney admitted there was little to no desire among the American public for the outdated liberal conservative principles he’s known for.
“Right now, the nature of American politics is highly populist… I’m perhaps a throwback. I jokingly say I have about 2% of the population that’s with me.”
I think that might be a bit on the high side, Mitt.
