It Bodes Well for The Democrats

New Hampshire's registered voters are broken down as 26% Democrats, 30% Republicans and 44% Independents.

Hillary Clinton has received 27,000 votes so far (It's 9 pm eastern time). The republican winner, McCain has received 17,000 votes.

Over 73,000 votes are counted on the democratic side so far. For the repubs it is 49,000.

Once again, as in Iowa, new people are showing up and independents are voting with the dems.

It is rare that things in politics can make me smile. I'm heading off to find a bottle of wine. It's time for cheer.

UPDATE: The final tally according to CNN this morning was 279,276 votes in the dem primary and 228,531 votes cast in the repub primary.

Can anyone explain how Chris Dodd came in
behind Mike Gravel? Ouch.

My thoughts, exactly. Big numbers for the dems. But I'm more a beer than wine guy.

At approximately the same time I was doing the same thing! Cheers!

They love fringe candidates in NH. That's why Dodd finished behind Gravel.

Oh crap, that can't be true!
