  • Keene canvasser offers glimpse into Elizabeth Warren's ground game

    The Keene Sentinel ^ | October 11, 2019 | Jake Lahut
    Hillary Ballantine leaves little to mystery when knocking on doors for Elizabeth Warren. Ballantine, 28, of Keene, is usually swagged out in attire from the Democratic presidential candidate’s campaign — from a navy blue Warren hat to a “the best president money CAN’T buy” T-shirt — in addition to toting a clipboard and brochures. Like any door-to-door canvassing, the environmental scientist and Antioch University New England alumna’s volunteering often draws no answer. But on Saturday morning — still four months out from the New Hampshire primary — some residents she met had already been reached by the campaign before. After...

    Former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski predicted Thursday that President Trump will win by a wider electoral margin next year compared to his 2016 victory. “My prediction is Donald Trump will win by a larger electoral margin than he did in the 2016 election,” Lewandowski told Hill.TV. He was also optimistic about Trump’s ability to win three states that he lost in 2016: New Hampshire, New Mexico, and Nevada. Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton won all three states by a slim margin. Trump received 304 electoral votes to Clinton's 227, for a 77-vote margin of victory.
  • New Hampshire GOP official says support for Trump is 'overwhelming' in state

    An official for the New Hampshire Republican Party said Wednesday that support for President Trump in the Granite State is at an all-time high. “Now, the excitement for Trump right now is overwhelming,” Kate Day, a local committee chair for the GOP, told Hill.TV, pointing to Trump’s campaign rally in Manchester last month. Trump won the GOP primary in New Hampshire three years ago before narrowly losing the state to Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton in the general election. But his overall approval rating in the state has declined compared with when he took office, according to a monthly Morning...

    MANCHESTER, New Hampshire — President Donald Trump threw himself another big rally Thursday night, this time in Manchester, New Hampshire, a state he nearly clinched in 2016. We invited Lucas Meyer, the president of the Young Democrats of New Hampshire, to attend the rally with VICE News and talk to Trump’s fanatical supporters about why they love him so much. He agreed to attend because it’s “instructive to experience.” "Maybe I'll learn something new. I don't count on it. And part of it is I want to see it to, like, motivate myself for the next year and a half,”...
  • MSNBC guest mocks Trump voters: 'Can anybody at the MAGA rally point out Greenland on a map?'

    An MSNBC guest questioned the intelligence of Trump voters on Friday, asking if anyone who attended President Trump's rally in Manchester, N.H., can "point out Greenland on a map?" On Thursday, the Wall Street Journal reported that Trump has asked his advisers whether the U.S. can acquire Greenland, an autonomous Danish territory, during "meetings, dinners, and passing conversations" because of Greenland's "abundant resources and geopolitical importance." However, "The Beat" managing editor Tiffany Cross expressed concern when she heard that "the descendants of colonizers" are flimsily considering "taking land from indigenous people." "This is something, you know his supporters are like...

    It’s not ‘guaranteed’ every Clinton state will remain blue in 2020, analyst says A White House official grimaced slightly Wednesday as a cable news chyron showed stocks plummeting, potentially undercutting President Donald Trump’s Thursday plans to say his stewardship of a strong economy should help earn him a second term. Trump will make another campaign-trail pitch to voters Thursday evening in what his aides see as a likely 2020 battleground state that could be a photo finish next November: New Hampshire. His rally in Manchester will mark yet another early reelection tour stop in an expected or possible battleground state....

    As Donald Trump looks to fire up his base Thursday night in New Hampshire, GOP political strategists and activists say the president needs to tout his economic successes, push back at “socialism” and reintroduce voters to the “unique appeal” that catapulted him to office. Trump returns tonight to the Southern New Hampshire University arena in Manchester — the site of his election eve rally in 2016 — for a “Keep America Great” re-election campaign event set to begin at 7 p.m. “He has a unique appeal,” Republican strategist Mike Dennehy said. “We know that he has the ability to connect...

    More than 20 Democratic presidential campaigns on Wednesday united against President Trump ahead of his visit to New Hampshire, issuing a joint statement attacking the president's “hateful rhetoric” while saying he has a record of siding with the wealthiest class. “That’s why all of us are fighting to defeat Donald Trump and move this country forward. No matter who the Democratic nominee is, we are in this together,” the statement, which includes all of the top-tier White House hopefuls, said. The statement was signed by staffers on behalf of Sen. Michael Bennet (D-Colo.), former Vice President Joe Biden, Sen. Cory...

    CNN Politics ^ | May 14, 2019 | Eric Bradner and Gregory Krieg
    Former Vice President Joe Biden predicted Tuesday that Republicans will have an "epiphany" and start working with Democrats once President Donald Trump is out of office. "The thing that will fundamentally change things is with Donald Trump out of the White House. Not a joke," Biden told reporters at a diner in Concord, New Hampshire. "You will see an epiphany occur among many of my Republican friends." The comment is the latest demonstration of Biden's effort to clash with Trump directly while also appealing to moderate Republicans, showcasing a broad appeal that could help him win a Democratic nominating contest...

    Despite mounting pressure from Granite State political leaders, Sen. Maggie Hassan is defending her decision to keep intern Caitlin Marriott on the job and instead used the intern’s profane attack on the president as an opportunity to attack Donald Trump. Calls for Marriott’s firing began as soon as news broke that the person who shouted “Mr. President, F— you!” at the Commander-in-Chief as he walked through the Capitol building was an intern in Hassan’s DC office. Instead, Hassan has suspended the intern for a week and had her ID badge revoked, and she defended her decision by pointing to the...

    MANCHESTER, N.H. — Three of the four Democratic women who represent New Hampshire in Congress voiced support Thursday for an ethics probe into allegations that Minnesota Sen. Al Franken forcibly kissed and groped a woman more than a decade ago while they were on a USO tour of the Middle East. The fourth delegation member, Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, is a member of the Senate Ethics Committee, which may be conducting an investigation, and said she could not comment on “specific cases that may come before the committee.” WMUR has learned that Shaheen, Sen. Maggie Hassan and U.S. Rep. Carol Shea-Porter...

    CONCORD, N.H. — Granite Staters got a first look on CloseUp at a new organization coming to New Hampshire headed by one of the data masterminds of the Trump campaign. "New Hampshire's going to be, probably, the state we advance to next," Matt Braynard, Executive Director of Look Ahead America, said. "We've identified maybe 15,000 inactive voters who we would consider disaffected, patriotic Americans. And potentially 100,000 or more unregistered adults we're going to reach out to." Braynard and the team he hires in New Hampshire will identify and target Granite Staters through psychometrics, using commercially available data to identify...

    Democratic members of Congress react to president’s provocative remarks about North Korean aggression MANCHESTER, N.H. — New Hampshire’s all-Democratic congressional delegation used terms such as “bellicose,” “chilling,” "dangerous” and "overly aggressive" to describe President Donald Trump‘s threat Tuesday to unleash “fire and fury” on North Korea if its provocative behavior continues. U.S. Sens. Jeanne Shaheen and Maggie Hassan and U.S. Reps. Carol Shea-Porter said the president should chose his words carefully and act strategically in dealing with the increasingly volatile situation. U.S. Rep. Annie Kuster said his remark may undermine efforts to deescalate tensions in the region. Trump, during a...

    Business Insider ^ | November 4, 2016 | Oliver Darcy
    Renowned statistician Nate Silver warned Friday that new polling could indicate trouble for Hillary Clinton as the 2016 race for the White House enters its final days. “There’s been a potential breach of Hillary Clinton’s electoral firewall,” Silver wrote on his data-journalism publication, FiveThirtyEight. Silver was referring to the so-called blue wall — states that have reliably voted for Democrats in the past several election cycles — and other states which have solidly been in Clinton’s court throughout the cycle. Specifically, Silver pointed to New Hampshire where polls have increasingly narrowed. Three polls released on Thursday showed Donald Trump at...

    The Washington Post's The Fix ^ | November 3, 2016 | Philip Bump
    If the polls closed right at this moment (which they won't) and if the results in each state perfectly mirrored the current RealClearPolitics average of polls in each state (which they won't), Hillary Clinton would be elected president by an electoral college margin of 8 votes. From her high in the polls a week or two ago, Clinton's leads in a number of critical battleground states have collapsed or evaporated entirely. The election could come down to one state with four electoral college votes that flips from Clinton to Donald Trump and, boom: A 269-269 electoral college tie, and a...

    Market Watch ^ | November 3, 2016 | Robert Schroeder
    Donald Trump edges Hillary Clinton by just one point in New Hampshire with less than a week remaining before Election Day, a new poll finds. Trump beats Clinton 40% to 39%, in the latest survey of likely voters from WBUR. Clinton led Trump by three points in WBUR’s prior poll, on Oct. 12. The new survey was taken Saturday through Tuesday, after Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James Comey said the agency was examining new emails related to its probe of Clinton’s private server. Other New Hampshire polls, meanwhile, have given Clinton the lead, as the RealClearPolitics average shows. McConnell’s...

    The Daily Caller ^ | October 31, 2016 | Kerry Picket
    Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has a slight lead over Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire according to a newly released poll conducted by InsideSources and the NH Journal. According to the survey conducted between October 26 and 28, Trump holds a 1.7 point lead over Clinton showing him with 44.6 percent support to Clinton’s 42.9 percent. Third party candidates were included in this poll with Libertarian Gary Johnson garnering 4.4 percent, Green presidential candidate Jill Stein receiving 1.8 percent, and independent Evan McMullin at 0.9 percent. Additionally, 2.1 percent gave support to other candidates and 3.5 percent are...

    Five Thirty Eight ^ | October 14, 2016 | Nate Silver
    Donald Trump hasn’t had a lot of good polling news lately. Very few swing-state polls have shown him with a lead since the first presidential debate, and those few leads have mostly been in states like Ohio and Iowa that aren’t part of Hillary Clinton’s path of least resistance to 270 electoral votes. To find good polls for Trump in states that could be part of Clinton’s firewall, you have to cherry-pick a bit — and you have to accept the fact that “good” in this context means trailing by a little instead of by a lot. With that stipulated,...

    The Boston Globe ^ | October 6, 2016 | James Pindell
    Less than five weeks until Election Day, Hillary Clinton’s lead over Donald Trump has disintegrated in the swing state of New Hampshire, a new survey finds. The Suffolk University/Boston Globe poll surveyed New Hampshire likely voters earlier this week and found Clinton with a slim lead over Trump, 44 percent to 42 percent. That’s well within the survey’s margin of error of 4.4 percent. To date, Trump has never led a general election poll in the Granite State. In the last two months, Clinton has maintained a 6 percent advantage in state polls, according to an average calculated by RealClearPolitics....
