Bernie Sanders easily won the New Hampshire Democratic primary last night. With the vast majority of the precincts reporting and 243,143 total Democratic votes counted, Bernie leads Hillary Clinton, with 148,276 votes (60.98%) for Bernie to 92,880 votes (38.20%) for Hillary.
This is a “yuge” victory, as Bernie himself would put it, for America’s future and middle class, and a total repudiation of the failed Obama-Clinton establishment that has, among other things, threatened to cut Social Security benefits, gave out political giveaways to Monsanto, has refused to close Gitmo, has enacted free-trade deals that ship American jobs to foreign countries, and has openly demonized young people, especially young women. New Hampshire Democrats overwhelmingly voted for a candidate who supports raising the minimum wage to $15/hour nationwide, universal, single-payer health care, reforming the broken criminal justice and law enforcement system in America, and making higher education truly affordable.
Last night, America’s future scored a major victory in New Hampshire. On to Nevada!
