Pundits predicted that Senator Bernie Sanders would win the New Hampshire Democratic primary over former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and boy did he ever. With 94 percent of the precincts reporting, the Vermont senator won 60 percent of the vote last night to Clinton’s 38.3 percent. In what some are saying is a problem for Clinton’s campaign, Sanders won big among women and people 64 and younger. Meanwhile, presidential candidate Donald Trump won 35.3 percent of the votes cast by Republicans.
Sanders’ win prompted many to #FeelTheBern on Twitter. Here’s a roundup of the reactions by Sanders and others:
What we confirmed tonight is that we’re building the political revolution our nation needs. This is your movement. https://t.co/Hx0Jl6G4pM— Bernie Sanders (@BernieSanders) February 10, 2016
Last night we served notice to the political and economic establishment of this country. The people want real change.— Bernie Sanders (@BernieSanders) February 10, 2016
But of course the reaction wasn’t all positive:
How depressing it is for our country that any American state could give a self-declared socialist a primary election win. #BernieSanders— Joe the Dissident (@joethepatriotic) February 10, 2016
