It will be interesting to see if the results continue to tighten with those two towns still outstanding. I suppose you could throw Plymouth into that group too. Keene went with Obama by a good margin, maybe those wild Keene St kids really boosted him up

I agree, it would be wise for him to bow out now, if he really wants that position.

And for that reason, I bloody well hope Edwards pulls out. That should give Obama the advantage he needs to clinch the nomination.

If Hillary wins, I will yet again be thankful I am not a US voter and don't have to choose between right and righter.

Keep left.

Wild Keene St. kids? That's where I went to school.

I didn't mention Keene or Plymouth as they are much smaller, but obviously they play a major role as well for Obama.

it's quite a night. too busy to really pay attention, but it's hard to really make any extrapolations on this beyond the following:

-- Hillary's tears weren't manufactured, they were the first real glimpse into the woman behind the machine
-- the Democratic turnout is gigantic
-- McCain beat Romney by less than half of what he beat Bush by in 2000
-- Rudy is over, Edwards is over

that's all i can venture. craziness. and time for bed.

Been watching (and reading) silently so far, but I have to pipe up and say that I'm hoping Durham and Hanover go over to Obama.

Anyone know where I can get a results map? CNN only has the numbers, as far as I can tell.

True, but he's beating Romney by much more than we thought he would.

Sorry, the numbers I am watching do not have anyone beneath Paul on the Repub side. Still, go Paul against the Ghoul.

Smaller, but more likely to be made up of NH residents since they are smaller state schools. Even UNH, I would think, would have a good size population from the state. Dartmouth probably to a lesser extent due to it's Ivy affiliation.

I can't say I know a lot about Keene St, though since the one person I know from there is a stereotypical sorority girl so she made everyone from Keene wild.

Check this out.

http://www.politico.com/nhprimaries/nhmap-popup.html

You can scroll over each town to see results and if they have been reported yet.

My hometown's results aren't in yet, and it's a very Democratic town, so that will be interesting.

But Portsmouth, a Democrat stronghold for years, went overwhelmingly for Clinton.

80% of Keene is reporting:

Obama 41.44%
Clinton 29.93%

Hanover, Durham, and Plymouth aren't listed yet. Expect the same type of numbers there, too.

However, many seacoast towns that are heavily Democratic have not posted their results yet, either. Since those are more established members of the party, expect Clinton to pick up those.

This is going to go down to the wire.

I made a mistake previously. I said that Portsmouth, a major Democratic town in NH, went for Clinton. It actually went for Obama easily.

Why do I listen to the media?

Why do I listen to polls?
