Analyzing the results of an election can help you learn as much as the vote totals themselves…and maybe more.
And this vote analysis is very, very bad for the Clinton campaign.
Here is what the New York Times discovered through exit polls:
Senator Bernie Sanders beat Hillary Clinton among nearly every demographic group in the Democratic New Hampshire primary, according to exit polls.
He carried majorities of both men and women. He won among those with and without college degrees. He won among gun owners and non-gun owners. He beat Mrs. Clinton among previous primary voters and those participating for the first time. And he ran ahead among both moderates and liberals.
Even so, there were a few silver linings for Mrs. Clinton. While Mr. Sanders bested her among all age groups younger than 45, the two candidates polled evenly among voters aged 45 to 64. And Mrs. Clinton won the support of voters 65 and older. And, though Mrs. Clinton lost nearly every income group, she did carry voters in families earning over $200,000 per year.
If this carries into the next state or two, it will be nearly impossible for Hillary to recover from it.
Do you think other states will see similar results as New Hampshire?
