    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) has taken the lead in New Hampshire, and Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) has experienced a significant surge in the Granite State, according to a post-debate Suffolk University/Boston Globe poll released on Monday. The poll, taken from November 21-24, 2019, among 500 likely New Hampshire Democrat primary voters, found Sanders retaking the lead in his neighboring state with 16 percent support, followed by Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) with 14 percent, and Mayor Pete Buttigieg (D) and former Vice President Joe Biden (D) closely behind with 13 percent and 12 percent, respectively. While six points separate the remainder...

    When President Donald Trump was elected in 2016, Kamala Harris appeared to hold the pole position to challenge him in 2020. And yet, three short years later, she has already conceded New Hampshire, is polling even worse in Iowa, and is at 4.5% nationally. Even in her home state of California, she is back from the front pack. This has been the biggest surprise of the Democrat primary, since she started from such an apparent position of strength. On paper, she is an intersectional Democrat dream candidate with her mixed Indian and black heritage. She is also brutally liberal at...

    Sen. Kamala Harris’s (D-CA) campaign is laying off campaign staff and closing three offices in New Hampshire, a crucial early primary state, as part of its effort to go “all-in on Iowa,” according to reports. Harris’s campaign will no longer have a heavy presence in New Hampshire, reportedly laying off campaign staff and closing offices in Nashua, Portsmouth, and Keene, in order to focus entirely on Iowa. While Harris’s office in Manchester will remain open, WMUR confirmed that it will be “scaled down.” Per WMUR: The Harris campaign also told WMUR that Harris has cancelled her scheduled visit to New...

    MANCHESTER, N.H. — Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg officially entered the 2020 race Sunday, ending several weeks of will-he-or-won’t-he speculation about a late entry into the already-crowded Democratic primary. Bloomberg’s entry was preceded by news of a massive television ad buy — $31 million, according to Advertising Analytics, who told NBC News it was the single largest single week expenditure they’d ever tracked. A $30 million buy in the final weeks of the 2012 race for then-President Barack Obama held the previous record. The ad promotes Bloomberg's record as mayor and then promises "to rebuild the country and...

    Mayor Pete Buttigieg has surged to the head of the Democratic presidential field in first-in-nation primary state New Hampshire, according to a new poll of likely primary voters released Tuesday. The Saint Anselm College Survey Center poll of 255 likely Democratic primary voters shows that Buttigieg, supported by 25 percent, now holds a 10 percentage point lead over former Vice President Joe Biden and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who are tied for second at 15 percent. Buttigieg is substantially ahead of Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, who is in fourth place at 9 percent.
  • Tree Lighting Removed From Annual Holiday Celebration In Durham, NH After Complaints

    A Durham, New Hampshire celebration scheduled for the beginning of holidays is undergoing some changes this year in an effort to remove religious overtones. Formerly called the Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony, the newly named Frost Fest will include the absence of a formal tree lighting. Santa will be at the event but he will not arrive in a town firetruck as he has in the past. The wreaths that traditionally adorned lamp posts on Main Street will also not be present this year. Town Councilor Sally Tobias says the changes came about after some controversy last holiday season. “There was...

    Iowa and New Hampshire get to weigh in first on the Democratic presidential contest next year, but the states are not ethnically diverse enough to offer any insight into how a candidate will fare across the country, former U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Sunday. “I don’t think it matters what happens in Iowa or New Hampshire because those states are not representative of the country anymore,” the longtime Nevada senator said. Nevada is the third state to weigh in but the first that looks like the rest of the country, with a sizeable Latino population and significant groups...

    As Democrats continue with their impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump, one thing is increasingly clear: the Democratic Party is worried about their ability to beat Trump in 2020. Voters go to the polls in the Iowa Caucus in less than 12 weeks and the Democratic field is still fairly packed.  The Trump campaign is focused on reminding the American people of promises the President made during the 2016 election cycle and kept once in office. He has successfully delivered on tax cuts, unemployment rates have hit a record low – especially for Hispanics and African Americans – and the...

    Hillary Clinton will lose the Democratic nomination to Bernie Sanders setting up a huge fight to "steal it by getting the super delegates" at the party's national convention next July in Philadelphia, political strategist Dick Morris predicted to Newsmax TV on Wednesday. "Hillary is losing to Sanders," Morris told "Newsmax Prime" host Joe Pags. "There is one post-debate poll that shows the margin collapsing from 20 points to 15. "In Iowa, it shows the margin collapsing from 18 to 5, 50 to 54," he added. "She's already at about eight or 10 behind in New Hampshire." He predicted the floor...

    Former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick is considering making a late run for the Democratic presidential nomination, according to two people with knowledge of his deliberations. Patrick, a close friend and ally of former President Barack Obama, ruled out a presidential bid earlier this year but has since been talking with Democratic operatives and donors about launching a campaign. His deliberations come as some Democrats express uncertainty about the party’s current crop of contenders. Patrick has not made a final decision on whether to run and faces fast-approaching deadlines to get on the ballot in key states. New Hampshire, the first...

    Michael Bloomberg’s still-nascent presidential campaign got more bad news Monday as another survey found more than half of likely Democratic primary voters in New Hampshire would give the former mayor the cold shoulder. The survey from Quinnipiac University found that 54 percent of voters “definitely” wouldn’t support the billionaire’s White House bid if he jumps in the race — while only 2 percent said they would vote for him. Another 37 percent of likely Democratic voters told the pollsters they were open to considering Bloomberg if he formally jumps into the race. “It’s a tough way to come out of...

Castro reasoned on MSNBC’s “Kasie DC” that the “country has changed a lot” in the last 50 years and Iowa and New Hampshire are no longer “reflective” of the United States nor the Democratic Party.

    A New Hampshire man attempted to register for a presidential bid in New Hampshire with the nickname "Epstein didn't kill himself." Rod Webber, a New Hampshire resident and popular personality during election time, was denied his effort to register for the first-in-the-nation primary on Friday. Democratic front-runner Joe Biden and entrepreneur Andrew Yang successfully filed in New Hampshire on the same day. Webber, who is popularly known as "Flowerman," has long been a fixture during early voting in New Hampshire, which marked its 100th straight year as being the earliest polling place in the nation.

    Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., had a billionaire in his sights at a campaign rally in Iowa Saturday night — and for once, it wasn’t President Trump. “Tonight we say to Michael Bloomberg, ‘Sorry, you ain’t gonna buy this election,’” Sanders told a crowd in Coralville, outside Iowa City. “ … Those days are gone.” […] Sanders also excoriated Bloomberg for avoiding the earliest states on the primary and caucus calendar and focusing his efforts on the states that hold nominating contests on Super Tuesday and later in 2020. “You’re not going to get elected president by avoiding Iowa, New Hampshire,...

    Aria Neukam says she loves that Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren has lots of plans. She knows the senator has an education plan, a Medicare for All plan, an environmental plan. Ms. Neukam says she doesn’t know exactly what is in those documents, but that isn’t the point. She says she thinks President Trump’s governing style is ad hoc and unorthodox, and she prefers a leader who has spelled out what they are going to do and how to do it. “In truth, when she says ‘I have a plan,’ I trust that there is some well-researched plan out there,”...

    More refugees must be resettled across the United States to fill a “void of cultural diversity” in towns that are made up of a majority of white Americans, a New York Times report states. As President Trump is set to lower refugee admissions for the third year, keeping his 2o16 campaign promise to significantly reform the program after almost four decades, the New York Times published a report this week detailing how Congolese refugees already living in the U.S. are looking to bring their foreign relatives to the country through the refugee resettlement program. hose who support expanding refugee resettlement,...
