New Hampshire, the state that “appoints” the presidents



New Hampshire fears the end of its era. For more than a century this tiny state, a splinter fallen from Canada and drowning in New England, has made presidents and ruined their political careers. But if the Democrats have their way, a new political dawn looms over Nevada, with its deserts and casinos, and New Hampshire could slip into the irrelevance of old glories. Democrats meet December 1-3 in Washington to decide the order of the 2024 presidential primary, and for the first time in decades they are seriously considering replacing New Hampshire with Nevada as the first state to hold a primary, after the chaotic caucuses in Iowa. More like an assembly meeting where the truth is that almost anything is possible. New Democrat deals upset voters like Jeb Mills Dover, who said that at the age of 56 he shook hands with every president he can remember, since Ronald Reagan, except the incumbent, “because he campaigned in the exact midst of an epidemic and was not drowned out by the state.” “The Democrats don’t seem to know. Our laws,” said this mechanic during Sunday’s rally on the Portsmouth dock. “Moreover, they risk losing this prestige for generations and generations,” he adds. “I write what I say.” It’s not just a warning. First, it’s true that New Hampshire law It states that its Secretary of State must call a primary before all other states, and Republican Gov. Chris Sununu is determined to do so. On the other hand, regardless of the primary, the state has been voting for the Democratic nominee in the general election since 2004, giving him 4 Electoral College votes.There are few voters here like Mills, who despite registering as a Republican, did not vote for Donald Trump in the 2020 general election, and does not plan to do so again now.Standard Related News Yes Biden: Doubt And you’re about an octogenarian who wants to run for re-election by Javier Ansurena. The men who stormed the Capitol can’t be forgiven, no matter what party you’re on” Mills says, referring to the January 2021 insurrection, the attempt to perpetuate Trump in power by a mob in all kinds of costumes. It’s a general feeling here in New Hampshire. Many Republicans in this state already have other candidates, such as their governor, who had the courage and dared to mock Trump, publicly calling him “crazy.”In the by-elections that took place nearly three weeks ago, New Hampshire turned its back on Trump’s candidates, and he achieved Surely a success for the Democrats, but also for a new group of Conservatives led by Sununu, who is only 48. It hurts here in Portsmouth and the surrounding areas to lose your position in the political front line from the primaries. Any state resident knows, they say it off the back. Flip, that since 1920 this was the first state to hold primaries, which was won by Republican Leonard Wood, who was a major general in the war with Spain and governor of Cuba after the American victory.It is true that Warren Harding ended up in The Republican convention that year was in Chicago, but since then, more than a century earlier, the New Hampshire primaries have been held for the first time. A mascot for candidates This is why this state, with a population of barely a million (the equivalent of a neighborhood in New York or Los Angeles) has served as a mascot for many candidates who have seen their fortunes change here. Especially Republicans. It was created by Trump himself. He arrived in the 2016 primaries like an elephant in a china shop, without being taken seriously by the party, more of a joke than anything else. He lost the Iowa caucuses, but New Hampshire won, and from there to the White House. The same thing happened to Mitt Romney in 2012 and John McCain four years ago. Iowa, with its complex and heat-seeking caucuses, usually picks one-night stars like Rick Santorum, Mike Huckabee or Ted Cruz, who later move into the background, third place, or simply disappear. For this reason, we vote conscientiously, never lightly. Scott Rogers learned it from his grandfather. Portsmouth, 32, writes on a piece of paper the candidates who deserve his vote at the local, state and national levels. He puts together a convoluted patchwork of names Democrats, Republicans, and Independents, based on what they stand for and what they promise, not their party, and that goes to the polls. He went with all the winners: Republican Governor Sununu, Democratic Sen. Maggie Hassan, and Democratic Rep. Chris Pappas. “This is not the time for jokes,” Rogers says with a laugh. “And, of course, the cat urinated too much, if you think about it, that’s no joke.” Rogers points out one of the most hilarious campaign episodes in this state. In the Senate primaries in this state, Trump managed to impose his candidate, retired general Don Bolduc, who turned out to be an outsider in his convictions. He initially denounced electoral fraud for which there was no evidence, but later withdrew. He seemed to gravitate toward seriousness, seeking the centrist vote, until he decided to denounce that cat urination services had been installed in public schools because more and more kids identify as trans-cats, and Democrats want to help them transition their gender. “Now there are little hairballs in classrooms,” he said, “and I’m not making this up.” “This happens in Derry, for example.” The truth is that it was a calumny, and schools in Derry and elsewhere vigorously denied it. General Bolduc’s bizarre campaign, with a cat lover, was his political end, for now. Republican electorate in the 2020 EFE primary Republicans had a strong candidate for the New Hampshire Senate seat. This is the same centrist Governor Sununu who has made no secret of his interest in moving to Washington after three terms. His admirers later watched him jump from the Capitol to the White House, like Biden, Obama and many others. But Trump stood in his way, and luck took him in other directions. The fact is that in 2016 and 2020, Sununu supported Trump. However, she breaks up with him after ransacking the Capitol. He has publicly called him “misguided” and criticized his claims that those who participated in the failed 2001 uprising should be pardoned. After refusing to let Trump come to New Hampshire to campaign for him, he joked over dinner earlier this year about the former president’s state of mind. “He’s crazy as hell,” he said, laughing. Immediately, Trump rallied his followers. Corey Lewandowski, a loyal staffer and achiever of the former president, who led his campaign in 2016, first looked for gubernatorial candidates to run in the primary against Sununu, but failed. Later, Trump was convinced to block his way to the Senate, with Bolduc, a nominee out of nowhere and picked him who surprisingly won the primary, by less than 2,000 votes. Rebel voters But here the legendary power of Trump is not felt as such. Governor Sununu, whom Politico called “the only Republican Trump can’t touch,” has a approval rating above 60% and is confirmed for a fourth term, which is very rare in this case. He also achieved it with 57% of the vote, percentages similar to those of the party’s new stars such as Ron DeSantis, the governor of Florida. Today, Sununu is considered one of the top spots in the 2024 primaries, according to Trump. Everything indicates that she will have her state’s support in the primary, which is an excellent political starting point, since at the moment it is the first state to hold it in both parties. Republicans are not seeking to change the voting order. Related news Record yes The battle of 2024 begins with Democrats and Republicans without clear leadership Javier Ansurena. The two major parties in the United States are at an impasse: Neither Biden nor Trump are good options but they want to be re-elected , that is, those who bear the stamp of Trumpism. Regarding the former president, he said, “He won’t get the financial support he had before, he won’t have the domestic support he had before. So, there is an opportunity there. This political weakness is… blood in the water for some.” . In other words, Trumpism is surrounded by sharks, and he might be one of them. The decision to stand up to Trump has served Sununu well here in New Hampshire. The state’s motto is “Live Free or Die,” and these voters love to feel perpetually rebellious, simultaneously able to assume the powers that be like the Trump machine, with its Mar-a-Lago headquarters, or all of Joe Biden’s power in the White House, with his attempts at regime change. The incumbent is such that a state in which unions carry heavy weight, such as Nevada, leads in the primary race on the left. Of course, as Mills said, the Dover mechanic, they will not forget if the Democrats end up ousting them from their privileged position, and perhaps that is why they will end up as unlike Biden as they are for Trump. However, this decision has not yet been made, and there is still the possibility of preserving the current system, as it was a century ago.
