Yesterday’s results in the New Hampshire primary revealed clear cut wins for both the Republican and Democratic contenders.
For the GOP ticket Donald Trump’s overall percentage (at the time of writing) was 35.1% (92,417 votes) which in contrast to the runner-up, John Kasich, more than doubled Kasich’s results.
For the Democrat ticket Bernie Sander’s overall percentage (at the time of writing) was 60.0% (138,716 votes), which in contrast to the runner-up, Hillary Clinton, nearly doubled Clinton’s results.
So what would I say is the contrast between Trump and Sanders?
Donald Trump is a captain of industry speaking a plain truth the silent majority of Americans can identify with. His Reagan era chic coupled with a negotiating business knack that would make a rabid pitbull settle for a deal is testament to the old truism that “nothing sells like sincerity”.
Bernie Sanders is (from what I can tell) a comrade of the slacker revolutionaries who flock to Franklin D. Roosevelt’s proposal for a Second Bill of Rights (you know the one Michael Moore loves so much).
Food for thought.
