Some Numbers from NH 2016 Primary

nh_primary_pictureMy impression has always been that New Hampshire is a heavily Republican state, “live free or die” etc., but in terms of numbers of voter in the primary, that is only born out to minor extent.
More voters (284,108) cast ballots in the Republican than the Democratic primary (250,962) in New Hampshire for the first time – in a year when both parties had contested primaries – since 2000, not coincidentally the last time Republicans took the White House from the Democrats and the last time a Republican won New Hampshire.

Bernie Sanders won 151,573 votes, and Trump 100,360.
