Sanders Victory over Clinton Is Overwhelming
Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders cleaned up in New Hampshire, winning almost every important demographic to the Democratic Party.
Sanders won the state with 60 percent of the vote, while Hillary Clinton took home 39 percent.
The Hill reports:
As of now, it would be the largest margin of victory in a contested Granite State Democratic primary since 1956.
And his support was across the board.
NBC News exit polls showed that he won more than 80 percent of voters under age 30, two-thirds of “very liberal” voters and 68 percent of gun owners.
Sanders won across all ideological lines, all age groups and all family income brackets under $200,000.
He also found support from female voters, who are more likely to lean toward Clinton, winning 55 percent of that group.
His total also came on the backs of independent voters, who made up 40 percent of the electorate.
Sanders won 72 percent of those who identify as political independents.
