Bernie Sanders wins vote by less than 2 points


WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump celebrated his victory in New Hampshire’s Republican primary on Twitter and complained that his win was overshadowed by the hotly contested Democratic election.

“The Fake News Media is looking hard for the Big Democrat Story, but there is nothing too fabulous,” Trump tweeted late Tuesday. “Wouldn’t a big story be that I got more New Hampshire Primary Votes than any incumbent president, in either party, in the history of that Great State? Not an insignificant fact!” 

“Fake News @CNN and MSDNC have not surprisingly refused to talk about my record setting number of voters in New Hampshire (and in Iowa),” the president tweeted Wednesday, vowing to “win both states in November.” 

Trump did receive more total votes than any previous incumbent with more than 120,000, while his lone national challenger, former Massachusetts Governor Bill Weld, got 12,993. But former President Ronald Reagan received a slightly higher percentage of the vote in 1984 as an incumbent seeking reelection with only a nominal challenge from a former Republican governor.
