President Donald J. Trump scored a decisive victory on Tuesday night in New Hampshire, and also set a new record.
As renowned pollster Rich Baris points out, Trump demolished the record for most votes ever cast for a presidential candidate in an NH primary. The record was previously held by Bernie Sanders in 2016.
In 2016, Sanders received 152,193 votes, crushing Hillary Clinton.
At time of publication, 152,565 votes were cast for President Trump, with 13% of the votes still yet to be tallied.
Trump triumphed over his only remaining competitor, Nikki Haley. This win serves to further solidify Trump's position as the undisputed front-runner in the race for the GOP's 2024 presidential nomination.
As of late Tuesday night, the exact margin of Trump's victory awaited confirmation, but the outcome in the Granite State deals a setback to Haley's attempts to rally an anti-Trump coalition - made up of independents and Democrats - who aimed to impede his progress toward the nomination.
Following Trump's victory, Haley doubled down on staying in the race, assuring her supporters that "this race is far from over."
Trump criticized Haley, saying "somebody ran up to the state all dressed up nicely when it was at seven, but now I just walked up it’s at 14," he said, noting his lead over Haley in the election results. "She was up and I said wow, she’s doing like a speech like she won. She didn’t, she lost.
"We'll head out to South Carolina where I think we're going to win easily. I think we're 50 points up … on a person that was governor, that tells you something, but I felt I should do this because I find it a life you can't let people get away with bullsh*t, okay. And when I watched her, the fancy dress, it probably wasn't so fancy, come up I said what is she doing? We won. And she did the same thing last week."
An astounding 70% of Haley voters were not Republicans.
