New Hampshire results: resounding wins for Trump and Sanders

Democratic and Republican voters deliver resounding victories for two candidates whose 2016 presidential campaigns were once seen as far-fetched

Voters in New Hampshire delivered a resounding rebuke to the US political establishment on Tuesday, with strong wins for leftwing Democrat Bernie Sanders and bombastic Republican outsider Donald Trump in the second major test of the 2016 presidential race.  

The Vermont senator’s victory over Hillary Clinton will give him much needed momentum as he heads for tougher states further south, while high voter turnout helped power Trump to a double-digit victory that could end up matching consistent polling leads he has maintained since declaring his candidacy.  [Read more]

    I feel the Bern! I look forward to the day when we can have a woman president. Hillary Clinton is not that woman.

    Rosaliene, you are going to be one disappointed woman in the end.

    “Hillary Clinton i not that woman”

    Careful about what you want. Bernie or Donald Duck would be a disaster. Here s why about Bernie
    – Unlikely he would be elected. The word “socialism” scare many Americans.
    – Where would he get the money for this free public college education, medicare for all, higher minimum wage …..higher taxes wont fly with a republican Congress.
    Republican control govt would not allow his socialist agenda.
    – He is lame on foreign issues, which is currently very very important.

    Sadly, disappointment and disaster are part of our lives. I’ve had a lot of that under the current president that I actively campaigned for.

    Amazing how people could see the same thing differently. I did not expect much from Obama but am now proud of him knowing how much he did in spite of so much opposition.

    Right now we need a person who can deal with the complex challenges facing America, especially globally:
    – the defeat of ISIS and and Al quida
    – bombing of North Korea to prevent them getting the Nuke.
    – the threat of Russia…….and many more.
    Which of the candidates is best qualified to deal with these challenges. Easy answer.

    Forgot to mention that only now Bernie Sanders realise there are non-white people in America. Lets see what happen in SC and onwards.

      Ridiculous. Have you any idea of his civil rights record?

      • Albert  On 02/13/2016 at 12:39 pm

        What is so important about his civil rights record that no one recall. His campaign up until SC ignored issues facing non-white groups: reform of the criminal system, immigration, gun control etc. Now he is finish with his particular message to those almost white states he begins a march for black support. HIs aim should be across the entire national board. We are all in the same country.

    Rosaliene: I know you can write and express yourself well, so why don’t you write to us all about the short-comings of the current President??

    Instead of this meaningless declaration: “Sadly, disappointment and disaster are part of our lives. I’ve had a lot of that under the current president that I actively campaigned for.”

  • Clyde Duncan  On 02/12/2016 at 11:17 pm

    If Bernie Sanders is running for AFL-CIO President

    He has impressive credentials

    If Bernie Sanders is running for USA President

    He needs the credentials of Hillary Clinton

    @ Albert on Bernie Civil Rights record
    Long before the Clintons Bernie was involved http://vetsforbernie.org/2016/02/yes-bernie-sanders-protested-for-civil-rights/

    • Albert  On 02/17/2016 at 10:52 am

      Bernie’s Civil Rights Record……Ok, lets accept he must have done some protesting, even though it look like a storm in a tea cup.
      There has been scores of such college protest in America during the 60’s..

    Last night I listened to an interview of Trump on MSNBC and it seem he has some out the box economic plans.This is my interpretation of his thinking.

    Take Mexico with which we have a 59 billion trade deficit. His argument seem to be Mexico is allowing illegal drugs, criminals and large pool of unemployable to cross into the US. The effect is an enormous social cost on the US from drug related crimes, taking care of the illegals and hiring staff. The US should be compensated with part of the deficit (about 9-12 billion) to build the wall on the border and help stop the flow of illegals and the cost they incur. Otherwise the trade agreement is off.

    A similar argument would be made against Japan and China…..using currency manipulation to gain trade advantage with the US. South Korea, Japan, Germany for compensation from using our troops for protection
    .
    Use this money to cut business tax and encourage companies to return to the US
    .
    Who said Trump did not have ideas to make America great again..
