If anyone had any doubts about enthusiasm for President Trump going into the November election…this news should certainly squash it.

With 87 percent of precincts reporting, President Trump has received 126,815 votes in the New Hampshire Primary–more than DOUBLE what President Barack Obama received in 2012 (49,080).

President Trump responded to the news, writing on Twitter, “Fake News @CNN and MSDNC have not surprisingly refused to talk about my record setting number of voters in New Hampshire (and in Iowa). That’s why they are poorly rated Fake News! I will win both states in November.”

Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale noted that the president received more votes than any incumbent in the modern political history for the New Hampshire Primary, writing on Twitter, “Despite running against 16 opponents, President @realDonaldTrump won 100% of delegates and the highest number of votes for an incumbent in the modern political history of the New Hampshire primary. This includes both parties!”

Breitbart points out that the previous three presidents received the following votes in their reelection primary bid in New Hampshire:

President Barack Obama in 2012: 49,080
President George W. Bush in 2004: 52,962
President Bill Clinton in 1996: 76,797

In 2016, New Hampshire became Trump’s first primary victory, where he received 100,406 votes. During the general election, he lost the state by a razor thin margin of .3 percent–with 46.8 percent of the vote going to Hillary Clinton and 46.5 percent going to Trump.

New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu told Fox News he believes that President Trump will win the Granite State in the 2020 election.

“When [voters] go into that ballot box, that’s why they are going to be pulling the lever and Donald Trump is going to win New Hampshire — because we kind of match our pro-business message with his economic success,” he said.
