Of course November will bring a red tsunami to the polls. But it’s extra satisfying to know Trump turned Obama’s numbers into chump change.
As we can all see, Trump doesn’t have a challenger. So winning the GOP primary is a no-brainer. But squashing Obama’s numbers to oblivion, that’s something leftists can’t ignore.
If we got back to 2012, Obama left New Hampshire with 49,080 votes. And he took a heaping helping of confidence from those numbers. Compare to last night’s take-away, and we have a landslide on our hands. Trump scored a whopping 120,000 with only 85% of the precincts reporting. In other words, Trump doubled Obama’s showing, and the numbers will only rise as the rest of the precincts weight in.
Apples to Apples
Just like Iowa, Trump left expectations in the dust. Not only did Trump destroy Obama’s record, but he also made former Republican presidents pale in comparison.
In fact, let’s just analyze the numbers a little bit. In 2004, Bush left New Hampshire with 53,962 votes in an uncontested race. And in 1996, Clinton took 76,797. Neither number even knocks on Trump’s door. In fact, Trump blasted past four decades of voting records.

But here’s the real kicker. These people showed up to vote in a race that doesn’t matter all that much in the grand scheme of things. Because it’s a primary, voter turnout is typically expected to be a bit dismal. Yet, the GOP was sent a message loud and clear. The United States doesn’t just want four more years. They demand it.
Former incumbents didn’t take the opportunity to fire up their base. That’s where Trump is definitely different. He constantly rallies his supporters. In fact, just before the New Hampshire primary, Trump revved up his crowd.
“Nine months from now, we are going to retake the House of Representatives, we are going to hold the Senate, and we are going to keep the White House,” Trump said to thunderous applause. “We have so much more enthusiasm, it’s not even close. They’re all fighting each other.”
Standing Room Only
Of course, like any other Trump rally, there was standing room only. The venue at New Hampshire University’s capacity is 11,700 people. As usual, the crowd outside was even more impressive that the massed huddled within the venue.
According to The Union:
Trump supporters began staking a place in line outside the SNHU Arena as early as 8 a.m. Sunday. First on the scene was Libby DePiero, a 64-year-old retiree from New Haven, Conn., who said it will be the 59th rally event for Trump she has attended.
“It’s a bit of an addiction,” said DePiero, a member of the so-called “Front Row Joes,” a group of Trump supporters who regularly claim the first spots in line at appearances.
“I can’t wait for this one. He’s going to be all pumped up, because the impeachment is all over with. He’s already posted he’s going to keep doing rallies after he becomes president, and I know he’s gonna be our president again. This is nothing but good here. I became a citizen so I could vote for this president.”
And it’s no wonder people love our president. Like Trump said:
“To support working families, we have reduced the cost of child care, expanded paid leave, and given 40 million American families an average of $2,200 more in their pockets thanks to the Republican child tax credit,” Trump asserted. “We are the party of equal opportunity for all Americans.
He added: “While the extreme left has been wasting America’s time with this vile hoax, we’ve been killing terrorists, creating jobs, raising wages, enacting fair trade deals, securing our borders, and lifting up citizens of every race, color, religion, and creed!”
It baffling that leftists don’t want to partake in the #winning. Of course, they’re too busy scheming their next plan to take Trump down. So far, it hasn’t worked very well.
