It's sad that I can't find real results on the NH Secretary of State's website and have to rely on MSNBC (msnbc.msn.com) for my numbers.

EDIT: Found better raw numbers at the Manchester Union Leader - D (unionleader.com) - R (unionleader.com)

Here we go:

(300 of 301 precincts reporting)
DEMS
Clinton 112,238 39.0%
Obama 104,757 36.4%
Edwards 48666 16.9%
Richardson 13245 4.6%
Kucinich 3912 1.4%
Biden 628 0.2%
Gravel 402 0.1%
Dodd 202 0.1%
Others 3771 1.3%
For all the excitement about Clinton's big comeback, she only won by about 7500 votes. But the media only seem to care about who gets The W these days. Will Edwards cost Obama the nomination by continuing to siphon anti-Hillary votes away from him? (The Republicans sure hope so!)

REPS
McCain 88447 37.0%
Romney 75202 31.5%
Huckabee 26760 11.2%
Giuliani 20383 8.5%
Paul 18245 7.6%
Thompson 2884 1.2%
Hunter 1220 0.5%
Others 5709 2.4%
No Wyoming bounce for Romney, I guess. We've now had three contests and different winners. People may now pay attention to Michigan - or they'll continue to ignore it and focus on SC instead.

Wow, Huckabee sure got a lot of airtime for doing so ... not great. I think hosts kinda like him as a guest - he's a funny guy and he plays the bass! (Or, if you're practically everyone in the press, the "guitar")

Paul beating Giuliani one more time would have been sweet, but he didn't, and although I hate to say it, I must reluctantly conclude that this is probably his peak (although if the interestingly-timed dirty tricks continue I may have to revisit that statement). Still, he's got enough money to give an eyepoke here and there and hopefully they won't keep excluding him from the debates - and who knows, maybe I'll be totally wrong and his followers will stick around for one more moneybomb (freeatlast2008.com). Hey, I'd love to be wrong - especially since my sign order doesn't arrive until tomorrow!

It's really sad considering the two came away with the same number of delegates, making it more of a tie than a win. That, of course, ignores the momentum gained by Hillary for both the other primaries and the superdelegates that she needs to hold (and sway more towards her,) but it's a fact that you're not hearing very much.

I think the bump is from the fact that she was supposed to lose big (by up to 13%. That and the fact she staunched the bleeding and made Obama look human. Look for the Clinton's to call in a lot of markers over the next month.

Quick, somebody hide Cerebus before the media latches onto him as the spokesman for The W.

This is the second straight primary where the top two Democrats got way more voters in their corner than top Republican (in Iowa, they don't actually release voter totals, but unofficial counts estimate that maybe even Edwards got more votes than Huckabee). Democratic voters are fired up to get a D back in the White House --- turnout will be a big factor in November.



How you uh, how you comin' on that novel you're working on? Huh? Gotta a big, uh, big stack of papers there? Gotta, gotta nice litte story you're working on there?

And now Bill Richardson has dropped out. No surprise really. Only Clinton, Obama, and maybe Edwards have a chance to get the nomination among the Dems, so anyone who stays is trying to promote their agenda (and frankly, Richardson didn't seem to have much of a unique agenda to promote). Gravel should follow soon after, while Kucinich will probably hang on for as long as he can.

Good to see Garfield Heights isn't on the list, although it almost looks like the *only* Cuyahoga county community not mentioned. WHOOO-HOOO - go Garfield! No voter fraud here at all! We can run a clean vote! YAY!
