President Barack Obama won the New Hampshire Democratic Primary Election with 82% of the vote over his closest challenger, Ed Cowen coming in at 2%. Details here.
Following Cowen were five candidates with 1%, Vermin Supreme, Randall Terry, Cornelius O'Connor, John Haywood, and Craig Freis. Seven other candidates came in at a statistical 0% with vote totals under 300 votes.
This is a big win for the President. In 2008, Hillary Rodham Clinton won the New Hampshire Primary and that win signaled the start of a tough and drawn out campaign for the Democratic nomination.
This year will be different.
Let's see how long the Republicans continue to beat each other up on the campaign trail, softening up the preemptive nominee, Mitt Romney, for the general election.
