BLUE Hampshire! For first time in history, registered Democrats outnumber Republicans!


The New Hampshire Democratic Party said that unofficial voter registration numbers show that they now have more registered voters than the Republicans.

According to the New Hampshire Democrats, there are now 2,908 more registered Democrats than Republicans. Registration numbers from the election show that there are 280,968 Democratic voters in New Hampshire compared to 278,060 registered Republicans. However, undeclared voters still outnumber both parties with 393,899 voters. The Secretary of State office is set to make the numbers official later today.

New Hampshire Democratic Party Chairman Ray Buckley said that the numbers reflect a trend that the once traditional Republican state is now shifting into the Democratic column. Buckley also predicted that the Democrats will outnumber undeclared voters within seven years.

"Numbers indicate that voters are joining the Democratic Party in New Hampshire by a two to one margin over undeclared and a three to one margin over the Republicans - making the Democrats the fastest growing of the three. If these trends continue at the current rate, Democrats will outnumber undeclared voters within seven years," a Democratic press release stated.

4. Amazing....
Hell must have froze over. I spent many years in NH back in Sununu's day and before. I had friends who'd live just over the border in Maine, because they couldn't ethically or morally live in NH. Maine was very blue and progressive back then, and NH was stifled and red.

Do you remember Mel Thompson?! Made Sununu or Bush, even, seem pure......

You've come a long way, baby!
