On the night when former Vice President Joe Biden left the state before the party was over and all other Democrat candidates for president were competing for the scraps that anyone not named Donald Trump left behind, President Donald Trump did what no other incumbent president has ever done in New Hampshire.
President Donald Trump earned historic support in the New Hampshire primary on Tuesday, easily beating the vote tallies of four recent incumbent presidents in the state.
With 90 percent of the vote reporting on Wednesday, Trump won 123,629 votes in the Republican primary, despite not having a serious challenger.
For the record, the two men challenging President Trump for the Republican nomination both dropped out of the race in the last week, so there is no competition, but still…
The people of New Hampshire came out and voted FOR the president just because they support him.
Stunning in American politics where a small percentage of the electorate participated compared to the overall population.
Here is the tally for previous New Hampshire primaries for incumbent presidents, who also won their re-election.
President Donald Trump in 2020: <123,629
President Barack Obama in 2012: 49,080
President George W. Bush in 2004: 52,962
President Bill Clinton in 1996: 76,797
President Ronald Reagan in 1984: 65,033
In 1992, President H.W. Bush faced a formidable primary challenge from Pat Buchanan, winning just over 50 percent of the vote in New Hampshire, before losing in the general election. President Jimmy Carter lost his re-election campaign to Ronald Reagan in 1980, after losing 12 primaries to primary challenger Sen. Ted Kennedy.
Just like everything else President Trump has done with this wild ride we are on, the man smashed the record in a way that left no doubt that the people of New Hampshire are behind him.
MSNBC, on the other hand, found that out in a rather embarrassing way.

The biggest thing all Trump supporters need to do to help him get re-elected, is to vote for him and his down-ticket candidate picks in the general election in November. If that does not happen, all of this will have been for naught.
