First New Hampshire primary results are in, here’s the biggest SURPRISE

As most of us woke up on this much-anticipated New Hampshire presidential primary day, the first results are already in. As has become tradition in the Granite State, three small towns in New Hampshire voted at midnight to cast the first votes in the state’s primary.

 Via The Blaze:

Donald Trump, Ted Cruz and John Kasich were the early winners on the Republican side, each receiving a total of nine votes across the three towns. On the other side of the aisle, Bernie Sanders won handily, defeating Hillary Clinton with a vote count of 17 to nine.

Here’s how things broke down across the three towns.

 In Dixville Notch, a town of 12, according to the 2010 census, three votes were cast for Kasich and two for Trump.

Sanders received all four on the Democratic side, with Clinton failing to earn one vote. 

Cruz won handily, however, in Millsfield, walking away with nine votes. Trump came in second with three, leaving Marco Rubio, John Kasich, Jeb Bush, Chris Christie, Carly Fiorina and Rand Paul (even though he dropped out) with one vote each.

Clinton, meanwhile, won Millsfield with two votes.

Hart’s Location was the last of the three towns to report its results.

Kasich took home five votes, Trump four, Christie two and Rubio, Carson and Bush one. 12 votes were cast for Sanders, seven for Clinton and two for Mark Stewart Greenstein.

The siphoning of Democrat votes by this Mark Stewart Greenstein, whom many of us had never heard of until now, may be the biggest surprise from these early New Hampshire votes. As the Blaze reported, Greenstein calls himself an “IED” — “increasingly embarrassed Democrat.” Given the lineup on the Democrat side, certainly sounds like Greenstein might be the sanest choice, judging from his slogan alone.

Experts say these early-voting towns have little influence on the state-wide outcome, beyond giving the winning candidates a few hours to feel on top before the final results start rolling in after 7:00pm Eastern, when polls close in the state.

Though you do have to wonder how many more “IEDs” — “increasingly embarrassed Democrats” — will cast their votes today…

(the above is the whole story)

    The link is extremely Ad heavy and the constant refreshing is very taxing.

    The good news for me is Cruz is doing well but it will be very close if this early caucus voting is any indication although the story does say these early voting towns have little “influence”, I think that just could be CYA, it is often times the little things that matter.

    AMEN! Go, Senator Cruz! Still praying that the eyes of truly patriotic Americans will see the difference between voting for someone because you’re mad and not really weighing the consequences, and being upset about what is going on, but taking the time to make a good choice. Voting when angry is not always a good thing, as it clouds your vision, thinking, and ability to reason. Praying that when people actually walk into the voting booth they will think things through even a little bit, let their mind get a little clarity.

    Pray for righteousness to be restored and for the peace of Jerusalem
