The Fix is In…

OK, “only” about 40% of precincts reporting, but it looks pretty solid, according to AoSDD:

DEMOCRATS

Bernie Sanders 59,577 votes (–) 60.5%
Hillary Clinton 37,750 votes (-21,827) 38.4%
Other 1,103 votes (-58,474) 1.1%

We don’t envy the Prozi voters. We thought we had it bad with “hold your nose” candidates, but they’re stuck with choosing between Felonious Granny and Cranky Commie. We’re sort of surprised that guy “Other” didn’t pull more of the vote.

What? Is that? Why, we do believe that it is! Behold: The Throbbing, Majestic, Imperial Schadenboner!

REPUBLICANS

Donald Trump 36,236 votes (–) 33.6%
John Kasich 17,951 votes (-18,285) 16.6%
Ted Cruz 12,696 votes (-23,540) 11.8%
Jeb Bush 12,401 votes (-23,835) 11.5%
Marco Rubio 11,433 votes (-24,803) 10.6%
Chris Christie 8,103 votes (-28,133) 7.5%
Carly Fiorina 4,760 votes (-31,476) 4.4%
Ben Carson 2,632 votes (-33,604) 2.4%
Other 1,686 votes (-34,550) 1.6%
Jim Gilmore 58 votes (-36,178) 0.1%

First place isn’t exactly a surprise here, unless you’ve been living under a rock. Which, come to think of it, doesn’t seem all that unappealing to us at this moment.

We are, however, a bit dismayed at Cruz’s weak third place. We’d expected (and hoped for) him to do at least a bit better than that. Still, it’s New Hempshirt, so what it says for the rest of the race is hard to say.

Still, seeing Marco “The Liar” Rubio kicked down to fifth does salve our wounds quite a bit, so we’ll take that.

And it was really nice of Gilmore’s friend to show up and vote for him.

Thatisall.

Cruz’s numbers are going to go down, once this is publicized. And it will be. GOP candidate has been touting endorsement from Mike Bickle, who notoriously said God sent Hitler to hunt Jews for not accepting Jesus as messiah For Bickle, this is what explains Nazi Germany’s murder of more than six million Jews. In a 2011 sermon, Bickle cited… Read more »

As a New Hampshire resident, and also unenrolled, (Means not part of either of the corrupt parties), I pulled a GOP(e) ballot. Once my vote was counted, I removed myself from the GOP(e) rolls and returned to my independent status. I’m not surprised Cruz didn’t do as well here as in Iowa. His dirty trick on Carson did hurt him… Read more »

Oh, one last thing. Proper identification was required in order to vote.

Carson appears to be a great man and I was very interested in his candidacy early on. But, his campaign developed (or rather deteriorated) into a sort of ambling, directionless nuisance. Really Dr. Ben, what’s your point? I like you. I really like you. But, please go home and let Ted have your delegates. Ted, for sanity’s sake kick your… Read more »

(JTA) — Ted Cruz’s presidential campaign defended an endorsement from a controversial pastor who has said Jews will be hunted and put in death camps before Jesus returns. In a sermon in 2011, Bickle said God would give Jews a chance to convert to Christianity and “raise up the hunters” against those who refuse. Bickle called Hitler “the most famous… Read more »
