Clinton allies grapple with crushing loss

Facebook Twitter Google + Email Comment Print
MANCHESTER, N.H. – Both Hillary and Bill Clinton knew she would lose here — but not by this much.

Now, after a drubbing so serious as to call into question every aspect of her campaign from her data operation to her message, the wounded front-runner and her allies are actively preparing to retool their campaign, according to Clinton allies.

Staffing and strategy will be reassessed. The message, which so spectacularly failed in New Hampshire where she was trailing by 21 points when she appeared before her supporters to concede to Sanders, is also going to be reworked – with race at the center of it.

Clinton is set to campaign with the mothers of Trayvon Martin and Eric Garner, unarmed African-Americans who died in incidents involving law enforcement officers and a neighborhood watch representative, respectively. And the campaign, sources said, is expected to push a new focus on systematic racism, criminal justice reform, voting rights and gun violence that will mitigate concerns about her lack of an inspirational message.

“The gun message went silent in New Hampshire,” remarked one ally close to the campaign. “Guns will come back in a strong way.” She is expected to highlight the problem of gun violence as the leading cause of death among African American men as she campaigns in South Carolina on Friday.

And sadly, it's a sure bet that they'll try and frame Bernie and his campaign and supporters (again) as racist and xenophobic, piling that on the sexism charge.

Well shit or cheers or both. We broke the internet. Act Blue is down


New Hampshire Students Say They Were Illegally Turned Away From The Polls

Plymouth State senior Jack Swymer headed to the polls around 11:30 a.m. to cast a ballot for Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT). He tried to take advantage of the state’s same-day registration process, but a poll worker told him that since he didn’t have a proof of his residence, he couldn’t vote.

“I live off-campus, and the bills are in my roommate’s name,” he told ThinkProgress. “I wasn’t familiar with all the voting laws, so I just did what the poll workers’ advice because I figured they knew what they were doing.”

It turns out, they did not.


Hillary won 1 economic group- those making over $200,000

Bernie Tweet: When we stand together, we win. Thank you, New Hampshire!


This a shocking statistic and a huge red light for Clinton

The most important quality for voters in the democratic primary was honesty/trustworthiness. 93% for Bernie, 6% for Hillary.

ABC just called it for Trump and Sanders

Seems a bit premature.

Just heard a political analyst say that Clinton must have some bad internal

polling. This was on my local Vermont station. The comment or is Dr. Garrison Nelson, Professor of American Governnent, Politics and Political Behavior at UVM, as well as being the most prominent political analyst in Vermont.

Dr. Nelson said that he couldn't see any other explanation for the panicked behavior of the campaign, and in particular Bill's fevered attacks on Bernie.

Professor Nelson teaches courses in American government, political leadership and political parties.

He is the author of more than 150 articles and professional papers on national politics with a major focus on the U.S. Congress and elections in Vermont and is a regular media commentator on those topics. He is the author of Pathways to the U.S. Supreme Court: From the Arena to the Monastery (Palgrave Macmillan, 2013) and co-author of The Austin-Boston Connection: Five Decades of House Democratic Leadership, 1937-1989 (Texas A&M University, 2009).
