No Delegates for Warren, Biden in New Hampshire

February 12, 2020   |   by James G. Dalton

Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., and former Vice President Joe Biden, two strong early contenders in the Democratic presidential race, were expected to finish the New Hampshire Primary with no delegates.

Both NBC News and CBS News were projecting that neither would meet the threshold of 15% needed to secure much sought delegates needed to propel candidates forward in the primary season.

The state’s 24 delegates are awarded proportionally among candidates who garner at least 15% of the vote.

Biden also fared far more poorly than he expected in Iowa, and left New Hampshire on Tuesday before voting was even finished so he could start campaigning in South Carolina. He spoke to New Hampshire supporters via satellite, then told South Carolina backers that the campaign now moves on to African American and Hispanic voters, “99%” of which have yet to cast their ballots, he said.

The results were particularly disappointing to the Warren camp. New Hampshire borders her home state of Massachusetts. Though Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders is also a New Hampshire neighbor, Warren expected a better finish than fourth.

Both Warren and Biden appeared to finish in the high single digits.

    HEY GUYS, didn’t you forget the other ones – the ones that don’t count anyway? Oops, forgot primary poll, there may not be as big a crowd for the teal one. [After Iowa can we be sure?]

      Patricia you obviously have a bad case of TDS! Looks to me like you belong at one of the Socialist Democratic Liberal MORONS websites not this CONSERVATIVE rational site! I suggest you spew your hateful filth and delusions elsewhere! We Patriotic Americans don’t want to listen to such perversion! If you can’t say something respectful then just shut up! At least respect the office of the Presidency! Trump/Pence 2020!
