United States candidate Sanders defeats Clinton in New Hampshire


https://youtu.be/oNeK-mFnJK0

This 9 February 2016 video from the USA is called After close loss in Iowa, Bernie Sanders handily wins New Hampshire.

According to 267 out of 300 precincts reporting in the Democratic party primary in New Hampshire, candidate Bernie Sanders had 60% of the vote, to Hillary Clinton 38,4%. Strangely, the Huffington Post then predicted Sanders would get 13 delegates, Clinton 15.

An error in the report, or a Democratic party establishment trick? UPDATE: it is the strange ‘superdelegate’ rule.

Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders won the New Hampshire Democratic primary decisively on Tuesday, defeating former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and posting the largest vote and the widest margin of victory ever recorded in the state that traditionally holds the first US presidential primary. Sanders, who calls himself a “democratic socialist,” defeated Clinton by a margin of 60 percent to 39 percent, outperforming most pre-election polls. He won an across-the-board victory, powered by enormous margins among young voters (85 percent of those 30 and under) and working-class voters (65 percent among those earning less than $50,000 a year and 67 percent among those without a college education): here.

The magnitude of Hillary Clinton’s New Hampshire drubbing has establishment Democrats wringing their hands as it dawns on them that no candidate in modern U.S. political history has bounced back from a 22-point loss in that first-in-the-nation primary to win the White House, reports Robert Parry: here.

By assuming that millennials are all ill-informed upstarts, and by ascribing mainly shallow justifications as to why they might prefer Sanders to Clinton, pundits minimize the issues that affect young people and motivate them to vote, by Clio Chang: here.

Donald Trump was at 35,1% in the Republican party primary, meaning 10 delegates. Kasich 3 delegates, Ted Cruz and Jeb Bush both 2. Marco Rubio, the favourite of some pundits, and all others 0 delegates.

According to the Washington Post, U.S. Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton concedes defeat as Sanders claimed victory while urging people to continue voting.

Sanders popular among women

Among young women, 82 percent of women aged 18-29 voted for Sanders which proves that the leftist candidate is popular among women despite efforts by the Clinton campaign to claim that category.

  2. I am going to share some information with you that will send shivers down the spines of the nation’s financial elite and political establishment:

    Since the polls closed in New Hampshire yesterday evening, we have received more than 150,000 contributions from people across the country for a grand total of $5.2 million… in just 18 hours.

    So we’ve set an audacious goal, but one we can reach together if everyone chips in:

    What we are doing on this campaign is telling the billionaire class and the 1 percent of this country that they cannot have it all. That we will no longer continue to accept a corrupt campaign finance system that is undermining our democracy. That the people of this country want real change.

    But as we’ve seen, the protectors of the status quo will not go down without a fight. Two weeks ago, we learned that Wall Street contributed over $15 million to one of Hillary Clinton’s super PACs.

    There are 14 primaries and caucuses over the next three weeks, and we expect them to ramp up their opposition to our campaign as a result of our tremendous success. That’s why it’s so important we hit this goal:

    Contribute $3 right now to help our campaign reach $6 million raised online since the polls closed last night in New Hampshire.

    When we started this campaign last April, we had no money, no organization, and were taking on the most powerful political organization in the United States.

    Look how far we’ve come. And if we continue to stand together, we are going to win.

    In solidarity,

  3. Sanders Rips Clinton For Citing The Admiration Of Henry Kissinger

    Bernie Sanders slammed Hillary Clinton for boasting about the praise of former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, which she did in last week’s debate.

    “I find it rather amazing, because I happen to believe that Henry Kissinger was one of the most destructive secretaries of state in the modern history of this country,” Sanders said. “I am proud to say that Henry Kissinger is not my friend.”

    Sanders went on to single out Kissinger’s widely condemned secret invasion of Cambodia during the Vietnam War.

    “And in fact, Kissinger’s actions in Cambodia, when the United States bombed that country, overthrew Prince Sihanouk, created the instability for Pol Pot and Khmer Rouge to come in, who then butchered some 3 million people, one of the worst genocides in the history of the world,” Sanders said.

    Many human rights advocates have indeed blamed the bombing campaign, which took place from 1969 to 1973, for contributing to the conditions that allowed genocide to take hold.

  4. No, Bernie Sanders Did Not Vote To Topple The Regime In Libya

    Hillary Clinton defended her strategy to kill Libyan strongman Muammar Gaddafi and destroy his government by saying that Bernie Sanders also supported “regime change” in Libya. Her characterization of Sanders’ vote is misleading.

    The U.S. intervention in Libya has converted the country into a failed state and a breeding ground for terrorists. Clinton, as secretary of state, was an architect and strong advocate of the U.S. strategy in Libya.

    Sanders voted for a non-binding March 1, 2011, resolution calling for Gaddafi to step down and shepherd in a political transition to democracy. Clinton described that as a vote for “regime change.” In a sense, it was. But it was a call for Libya to work its problems out. It did not authorize an American airstrike or a toppling of the Libyan regime.

    That resolution also called for the U.N. Security Council to take actions that would be necessary to prevent Gaddafi from killing his own people, including the implementation of a no-fly zone — essentially a bombing campaign.

    The U.N. Security Council eventually approved a no-fly zone. But a no-fly zone is different from full-fledged regime change, in which the goal is to remove and replace a country’s government.
