So you're seeing a trend, provided you ignore the data that doesn't fit the trend you are claiming.

So you're saying Kerry's gonna die of cancer and Hillary's gonna die twice?

Seems we can extrapolate a lot of things when we only consider one state!

Clearly it means that the winner of tonight's primary will be immediately tossed in a Viet Cong prison camp. No wonder Biden left early.

I'm not even sure what trend Subby thinks that even the selected data might establish.  In 3 of the 5 races cited, the NH winner eventually turned out to be the party's nominee, in 1 of the 5, the results were obviously skewed by the existence of a "favorite son" candidate from a neighboring New England state who obviously had an inside track in NH that wouldn't translate to other states, and in the other one, the NH winner failed to get her party's nomination. So it's kinda tough to divine what Subby's point, if any, might have been here.

Is Subby suggesting that that it's common for the winner of at least one of the parties' primary races in New Hampshire to fail to win in the general election?  Because that, y'know, also happens to be true in every other state as well.

From most of the context this is clearly a list of NH Democratic Primary results, so they REALLY pooched it in 2000...

Subby is just saying that the winner of New Hampshire is actually a stupid loser and no one should pay attention to him because no one likes socialism or horse face losers.

Subby is not even remotely Joe Biden.

Why is New Hampshire first?

This question comes up repeatedly, because, like Iowa, New Hampshire is not a diverse state.


Among other reasons, such as that whole "nobody lives there" thing.

Is New Hampshire a swing state?
First, let's set the table. Yes,

New Hampshire hasn't voted for a Republican Presidential candidate since 2000.  Calling it a swing state is a big stretch.
 
2020-02-11 6:06:41 PM  
With Iowa and New Hampshire out of the way we can now know how approximately 40% of the Oxy addicts in the US feel about the Democratic Primary.

It's also weird because while Clinton beat Obama in 08, Sanders beat Clinton in 16. Kerry of course won and went on to win the nomination. But I'm willing to allow that subby was suffering a stroke. Still, why greenlight such incoherent crap? Presumably so that mods can then get to work deleting posts that complain about greenlighting incoherent crap.

Subby is an idiot.

In any state that holds more than one primary the odds of the winner of any given primary winning the presidency are necessarily less than 50% on average.

This year throws the numbers off slightly since the cowardly Republican party is cancelling primaries so as not to hurt the fragile ego of their dipshiat god-king and his merry band of moron magats.

It's pretty divided, though.  You got the libby libs around Dartmouth College, and the rootin'-tootin' motorcyclin' residents of Lake Winnie.

1952 (first year of NH Primary), 1956 and 1968 were the only years where the Democratic nominee did not get 24% of the vote.  Two of those years featured incumbent Presidents getting over 24% of the vote, but they later withdrew from the race.

Let's see who can get 24% this year.

/though Bloomberg is an unprecedented wildcard this year

Hillary won NH in 2016 by 2,800 votes.  Out of some 760,000 votes cast.  It was really close.
 
2020-02-11 6:28:27 PM  
Kerry, McCain and Clinton went on to be nominated as their parties's contender. Though, not necessarily in that year. Clinton eventually went on to win the popular vote.

Klobuchar / Franken 2020
 
2020-02-11 6:31:51 PM  
I'm seriously not paying any attention any more. I'll vote for whoever is left that I like in the primary, and whoever has a "D" after their name in November. From dog catcher to POTUS. Flaming Bag of Dogshiat (D)? I'll pull the lever. Not a single prospect now could possibly be as awful as Mango Unchained.

i voted for Paul Tsongas in 92.  he was a really good person and it was such a loss when he passed away.

Did you know that you can rearrange the letters in Paul E Tsongas to spell the word gaseous plant

Major subby fail in the era of google.  And 2016 wasn't even that long ago for actual memory.  Sanders won the NH primary big time in 2016, raking in over 60% of the vote.  It was a huge victory and was all over the news.
