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.

The Push to Get Joe Biden Out of the Presidential Debates Has Begun

Trying to get a free pass.

Published

on

The New York Times published an op-ed dismissing the value of presidential debates on Monday, claiming that the electoral tradition has become little more than “unrevealing quip contests” that resemble professional wrestling for the uneducated rubes.

The op-ed is probably the most prominent attempt to undermine the plans for the events, with author Elizabeth Drew arguing the debates lack substance. She claims that the American public is blissfully unaware that well-known presidential debate moments are meaningless, pointing to Ronald Reagan’s 1980 “there you go again” debate admonition to Jimmy Carter.

Some Democrats have quietly worried about Biden’s prospects in the three contests, and the article may be the most public call to find the candidate a way out of appearing on a debate stage with Donald Trump.

Biden’s plain tendency to become forgetful and exhibit mental gaffes has become a concern, especially considering that some within the Biden campaign have noticed his cognitive issues tend to be most potent in the evenings in which the three debates are currently scheduled in.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the three contests are currently slated to be held without a live audience, precluding any attempts on the part of organizers to stack the university halls in which they’ll be held with a crowd of Biden supporters who hoot and cheer at any remark made by the Democrat. A similar audience format had worked in great effect in the 2012 presidential election, with a progressive crowd serving as in-house fans for Barack Obama in a debate moderated by Candy Crowley.

Biden has agreed to participate in the three traditional debate contests of the presidential election, although he had dismissed an offer from the Trump campaign to conduct even more debates before election, with the latter pointing to reduced campaign presence due to the coronavirus epidemic.

It remains to be seen if the Democratic nominee will abide by his debate commitment.
