(Tea Party PAC) – Well, the results are in for the closely-watched New Hampshire primaries, and they’re stirring up trouble among Democrats and busting records for the Trump campaign.
Not only was turnout at the polls fantastic for the incumbent, but it was record-setting! Votes for Trump surpassed incumbent presidents in the state for the last several decades by a longshot.
This man is a legend, and the Democrats should be very worried.
Enthusiasm for @realDonaldTrump is through the roof!
With approximately, 70% of precincts reporting, President Trump has surpassed the New Hampshire Primary vote total of every incumbent President running for re-election over the last four decades.

The voter turnout for Trump tonight in New Hampshire is absolutely insane. He has the most votes ever by an incumbent running for re-election in the NH Primary, and there are is only 63% reporting. That’s bananas.

The Washington Times reported:
While the Democrats try to sort out a crowded field without a clear front-runner, the president has been showing his popularity and organizational muscle in early voting states. He sparked record turnout for an incumbent in Iowa.
The turnout in New Hampshire also appeared to be setting records. Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale said with about 54% of precincts reporting, Mr. Trump had already received more votes than Presidents Barack Obama (49,080), George W. Bush (52,962) and Ronald Reagan (65,033) in the New Hampshire primaries for their uncontested reelection campaigns.
And Fox News:
With 87 percent of precincts reporting, Trump secured more than 120,000 votes in the Granite State. In 2012, Obama managed just 49,080 total votes in New Hampshire. The gap between the two presidents is likely to increase as more precincts report their totals Wednesday.
It also dwarfs the total of other incumbent presidents: then-President George W. Bush received 53,962 votes in the largely-uncontested GOP primary in New Hampshire in 2004. And in 1996, incumbent President Bill Clinton received 76,797 votes in New Hampshire’s primary.
On Monday evening, POTUS packed an arena, as he so often does, with a lively and enthusiastic crowd that put the crowd during Saturday night’s primary debate in the Granite State to shame.
He also drew a packed arena of about 11,000 supporters and an overflow crowd on Monday night at Southern New Hampshire University in Manchester, a larger audience than any of the Democratic candidates could muster. Some in the crowd showed up 35 hours ahead of time for the rally.

Campaign officials said about 25% of those attending the Trump rally were registered Democrats, and Mr. Parscale said half of the rally attendees from New Hampshire hadn’t voted at all in 2016.
“Those numbers alone take us over the winning line,” he told Fox News.
Meanwhile, as Bernie Sanders’ victory in the Democratic race sends inevitable conflict throughout the already troubled party, Trump’s total votes also blew Sanders’ out of the water!
Sanders squeaked by with just 75,439 over Pete Buttigieg’s 71,763, while Trump got 128,195!
