Skip to comments.Bernie Sanders's huge New Hampshire win exposes a fractured Democratic Party

The results in New Hampshire show a Democratic Party in the state that is deeply ruptured demographically and ideologically -- in a way that happened to very much favor Bernie Sanders on Tuesday night.
Sanders won two out of every three men, and notably slightly more women than Clinton, according to the most recent exit polls. Sanders won young voters -- those under 30 -- by about 70 percentage points. He won those aged 45 to 64 with a slight majority. He won two-thirds of non-college graduates and a little over half of those with degrees. Sanders won six in 10 voters with household incomes of less than $100,000, and a bare majority of those earning $100,000 or more.
Buried in the responses, though, is a strain of animosity. More than a third of voters said they would not be satisfied if Clinton won the nomination, while 1-in-5 said the same of Sanders. Among those who said that the most important trait was honesty, Sanders won 9 in 10 votes. Among those looking for experience, Clinton won by a similar margin. Clinton backers think Sanders is too liberal; his supporters think she's not liberal enough.

Poor Donks are having a tough time choosing between Dumb and Dumber!
Well, at the very least, they’re shoiwng themselves to be the true commies we always knew they were.
They’re out in the open with Sanders.
They’ve gone full retard!
After 8 years of hearing Obama called a communist, they decided to back a real one!
Despite the press, Hillary and Sanders are TIED in delegates after this and Sanders will crash and Bern in the south.... unfortunately. Sanders is an easy to defeat nominee.
The news media has been obsessing for years over the Republican party fracturing. Now look.
Hillary couldn’t win IA decisively.
The Bern comes with a huge tailwind out of NH.
Hillary’s main problem is no one likes what she’s selling.
Finally someone in the liberal media is calling out what has been obvious to the rest of us for weeks if not months.
The BEST thing about the Bern giving Hillary a run for her foundation money is that it stops Dems from crossing over and spoiling our selection process.
That, and the fact they don't like her personally.
Sanders will soon have an unfortunate accident, plane crash or sudden heart attack.
Terrible how older people can pass away at any time.
That Hillary is an old hag, a bitter, boring scold?
Yup, that comes as a revelation to the MSM.
Biden is warming up in the wings. As soon as someone gives him his marching orders.
It is extremely frustrating that at this historical epoch, when the two leading Democratic candidates are essentially unelectable, the Republican Party cannot find a consensus conservative electable candidate who will lead the country out of this bizarre decadent era. Also almost no attention has been given to the world recession and the huge decline in the stock market. It would appear that The US is about to enter an economic crisis much worse than that which swept Obama into power in 2008.
Phil Bump is a metrosexual Lefty. He would never slander the “Democrat” Party. :)
Did you possibly consider that voters are ready to throw ALL of the Uniparty overboard???
Bernie Sanders’s huge New Hampshire win exposes what a bunch of un-American morons the Democratic Party composed of .
