Democratic Candidate Wins REPUBLICAN Votes in First New Hampshire Primary Reporting

We all knew that 2020 was going to be a wild one, but we may not have predicted this, specifically.

As the New Hampshire primaries get under way, the Democratic Party needs to display some unity.  They need to get behind a candidate in earnest, rather than allow their wild smattering of rotating weekly frontrunners to continue.

Furthermore, they don’t need any more surprises when it comes to votes – not after the mess in Iowa a week ago.

That’s why, when Dixville Notch’s lone Republican vote went to Mike Bloomberg, the nation took notice.

Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg won the most votes in the tiny community of Dixville Notch, New Hampshire — traditionally the first place to vote after midnight in the New Hampshire primary.

Bloomberg won two write-in votes in the Democratic Party primary, defeating Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), who had one vote; and former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, who also had one vote.

Bloomberg received the only Republican vote.

Dixville Notch’s kitschy “first” precinct schtick has been a longstanding tradition of northeastern politics, and was once considered a seemingly important trend-maker in the New Hampshire primaries as a whole.

With the bizarre popularity of Michael Bloomberg putting becoming the headline from the Notch, we’ve learned only that the Democratic Party is in for a whole lot more turbulence before they get their hands back on the yolk.
