Bernie Sanders Takes New Hampshire. The Night Socialism Went Mainstream


A radical Marxist is now the Democrat Party’s front runner.

Heads are exploding at the Democrat party headquarters

Atlantic: Bernie Sanders’s victory in the New Hampshire primary marks a turning point for Democratic politics.

the significance of Sanders’s standing in the race goes far beyond the next round of primaries. In the modern history of American politics, no candidate so firmly planted on the left has been so well positioned to capture the nomination of the Democratic Party. Sanders has won election after election in Vermont as an independent, regularly declining the label of the party he now seeks to lead. His rise to the top of a field filled with more mainstream candidates could point to an important shift in the electorate. In Iowa and New Hampshire, Sanders’s talk of revolution overtook Biden’s pleas for a return to normalcy in the age of Donald Trump, and with his platform representing a kind of untainted progressive purity, the oldest white candidate on the ballot prevailed—albeit narrowly—over a plethora of younger, more diverse options.

Bernie Sanders Wins New Hampshire Primary

Vermont senator narrowly beats Pete Buttigieg

With more than three-quarters of precincts reporting, Mr. Sanders, who is from neighboring Vermont, had just less than 26% of the vote, versus 24% for second-place Pete Buttigieg. Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota, following a strong debate performance last week, had just under 20%, well ahead of Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Joe Biden, who each have previously led the Democratic field in national polling.

“Let me say tonight that this victory here is the beginning of the end for Donald Trump, ” Mr. Sanders said to loud cheers at a watch party in Manchester. He also struck a tone of unity as he thanked his fellow candidates, who he said he respected.

“No matter who wins, and we certainly hope it’s going to be us, we’re going to unite together. We are going to unite together and defeat the most dangerous president in the modern history of this country,” Mr. Sanders said.

The 78-year-old self-described democratic socialist, who represents neighboring Vermont, had expected a strong showing here that he hoped would propel him into contests in Nevada and South Carolina, two states where he lost to Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential primary. That year, Mr. Sanders easily won in New Hampshire with more than 60% of the vote.

Mr. Sanders’s win, following his near-tie with Mr. Buttigieg in last week’s Iowa caucuses, showcased the resilience of a candidate who only months ago suffered a heart attack while campaigning in Nevada. The Associated Press called the New Hampshire primary for Mr. Sanders shortly after 11:40 p.m. EST.
