Welp, at Least New Hampshire Counted the Votes on Time
New Hampshire complicates things for Democrats. Andrew Yang is out. Establishment and leftist favorites are faltering. The Klobuchar moment may finally be upon us. And an old socialist and an Indiana mayor continue to compete as the front-runners right now. So, the New Hampshire primaries were weird and discouraging in many ways.
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I–Vt.) was the winner of this round, with South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg taking second place and Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D–Minn.) taking third. With 96 percent of precincts reporting, Sanders was the top choice for 25.9 percent of New Hampshire Democrats. Buttigieg got 24.4 percent of the vote and Klobuchar 19.8 percent.
Sanders is projected to get nine New Hampshire delegates. Buttigieg will likely get nine and Klobuchar will likely get six delegates.
Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren earned a mere 9.3 percent of the Democratic vote in New Hampshire, and former Vice President Joe Biden just 8.5 percent, placing fourth and fifth respectively.

Rounding out the New Hampshire Democratic primary were Tom Steyer with 3.5 percent, Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard with 3.3 percent, and Andrew Yang with 2.8 percent.
“The likely prospect now is that Sanders and several other candidates will divide the vote and delegates the rest of this month and into March, when more than 60 percent of the pledged delegates will be chosen,” writes Da
