From The Ground In New Hampshire: Trump Will Underperform

By Steve Berman | February 5, 2016, 12:55pm | @lifeofgrace224

While Rubio makes a run on the Granite State, there’s more complexity at play here than meets the eye.


Trump continues to be very, very popular, and his immigration-centered message resonates with New Hampshirites.


Of the 1.3 million people living in New Hampshire, roughly 94 percent of them are white, according to 2014 census data. Just 3.3 percent of the state’s population is Hispanic or Latino, compared to 17 percent nationwide, while about 5 percent is foreign-born, compared to 13 percent nationally.


I grew up in New Hampshire. I knew every single black student (and Chinese, for that matter) that attended my high school. All three black students, and two Chinese. They were my friends. We were a multicultural microcosm in a lily-white state.


From the ground level, immigration and America’s security is the top issue in a state where French, not Spanish, is the second language. Rubio is popular, but NH’ers have their concerns about his stance on immigration. Scissors-32x32.png

It should be pointed out The Big Guy has been basically living in NH, and doing at least 1 town hall a week, all seem to be well attended. We'll see if it pays off for him or not.




Trump claimed 11,500 in Little Rock


I wonder how many come for the entertainment?
