The Trump Train is about to steamroll the Democrats in November, judging by the off-the-charts voter turnout in the New Hampshire primary race. President Trump got more than double the votes in this week’s New Hampshire primary than Barack Obama got in 2012.
With 87% of precincts reporting, Trump scored 120,476 votes so far. The total votes will undoubtedly climb as more precincts report their results. By comparison, Obama eked out just 49,080 votes in New Hampshire in 2012.
Trump’s monster showing crushed the results posted by Republican George W. Bush in 2004 and Democrat Bill Clinton in 1996.
Last week, Trump also scored a record turnout for an incumbent in the Iowa Caucuses.
The unprecedented turnouts suggest that the sham impeachment ignited Trump’s fired-up base and sent a lightning rod through the MAGA movement. In other words, the impeachment stunt is backfiring spectacularly on Democrats.
While Democratic presidential candidates Joe Biden, Pete Buttigieg, and Elizabeth Warren spoke to tiny crowds at lackluster rallies, 11,000 Trump supporters descended on the campus of Southern New Hampshire University on Monday.
Many waited in line more than 24 hours — in snowy, freezing temperatures — before the rally even started.

At his rally, President Trump mocked the chaotic Democratic Party and vowed to flip the state. In 2016, Trump lost New Hampshire to Hillary Clinton by a narrow margin.
“We have more people in this arena and outside of this arena than all of the [Democrat] candidates put together and multiplied times five,” he laughed. “With your help, we are going to win in a landslide, New Hampshire.”
“The Republicans are energized! Nine months from now, we are going to retake the House of Representatives and we are going to hold the Senate. And we’re going to keep the White House. We have so much more enthusiasm, it’s not even close. They’re all fighting each other.”
The President contrasted his sizzling Trump economy and record-low unemployment with the Do-Nothing Democrats, who have nothing to show for the past three years but a failed impeachment.
“While the extreme Left has been wasting America’s time with this vile hoax, we’ve been killing terrorists, creating jobs, raising wages, enacting fair trade deals, securing our borders, and lifting up citizens of every race, color, religion, and creed!” Trump said.
In a slap in the face to CNN, one voter in New Hampshire told the left-wing cable outlet that he “couldn’t wait” to cast his vote for Trump.
Stephen Stepanek, the chairman of the New Hampshire GOP, says he has no doubt that President Trump can make the Granite State a “red island in the middle of a blue sea.”
Stepanek said unlike in 2016, when Trump did not have much of a ground game in New Hampshire, his team is exceptionally organized this time around.
“We’ve had people on the ground since March of last year,” Stepanek said. “We’re on our way to turning New Hampshire red again.”

Stepanek said Trump will win in November because he’s got phenomenal momentum at his back, unlike the flailing Democrats. “The enthusiasm on the Democratic side is not there the way it is on the Republican side,” he said.
