Bernie Crushes Hillary in NH Primary

Bernie Sanders easily won the New Hampshire primary Tuesday evening, beating Hillary Clinton with 60 percent of the vote compared to the former secretary of state’s 38 percent, based on 89 percent of returns. “What began last week in Iowa, what voters confirmed here tonight, is nothing short of the beginning of a political revolution,” the self-described democratic socialist told a raucous crowd of supporters in his victory speech in Concord. “We will all come together to say loudly and clearly that the government of our great nation belongs to all of us, not just a few wealthy campaign contributors.” In her concession speech, Clinton congratulated Sanders and vowed to keep fighting, aiming in particular to eventually win over his young supporters. “I also know what its like to stumble and fall,” she said. “It’s not whether you get knocked down that matters, it’s whether you get back up.” In exit polls, some three-quarters of Democratic primary voters under age 45 backed Sanders in New Hampshire, including 83 percent of voters under 30.
