Do the math on the percentages of the vote in the New Hampshire presidential primary: Bernie Sanders (26%) plus Elizabeth Warren (9%) equals 35%; Pete Buttigieg (24%) plus Amy Klobuchar (20%) plus Joe Biden (8%) plus Tom Steyer (4%) equals 56%. More moderate Democrats than liberal Democrats voted in New Hampshire. On the Republican side, Donald Trump (86%) versus Bill Weld and write-ins (12%) shows us that 12% of Republicans do not support Trump. Meanwhile, a rolling “Stone” gathers no time?
