Bernie Sanders secures victory in closely contested New Hampshire primary

Published

on

On Tuesday night, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) clinched a plurality of the vote in New Hampshire, winning the coveted “first in the nation” primary according to projections from NBC News and ABC News.

Sanders has recently managed to secure a modest lead in polling averages nationally, driven mainly by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg winning over voters previously backing former Vice President Joe Biden, whose numbers have dropped in recent days. Sens. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) and Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), as well as South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg, were heavily vying for a strong showing as well, with polls in the lead-up all giving them a reasonable chance of second place.

The New Hampshire result comes on the heels of last week’s Iowa caucuses, which were widely criticized for chaos and irregularities in reporting. Buttigieg very narrowly took a plurality of delegates in that contest, although Sanders won a majority of overall caucusgoers.

The presidential primaries now move to Nevada, which will be holding its caucus next.

According to a column from the Washington Post's Jennifer Rubin, Donald Trump cannot be happy with his polling numbers that are continuing to slide just months before the November election and that his re-election is now imperiled.

According to the conservative columnist who is one of the president's harshest critics, his daily "rally around the flag" press conferences don't seem to be working on a public seeking assurances that he is the person to lead the country through the COVID-19 pandemic as well as save a collapsing economy.

Wisconsin proves GOP’s ongoing war on voting is about ending democracy — and not just winning

Published

on

The Wisconsin Republican Party has been at the cutting edge of the efforts to make sure few, if any, Democratic voters ever make it to the polls again. Under the guidance of former Republican governor Scott Walker, a stalwart opponent of food having flavor, the state enacted a dizzying program of voter suppression, requiring people to have updated government-issued IDs while simultaneously making those IDs much harder to get, especially for people of color. They also suppressed the college student vote by banning most student IDs as a legitimate form of identification.
