The New Hampshire primary: The expected path

Nikki haley, Wikipedia

Yesterday, the New Hampshire primary was held in both Major parties of the USA. Naturally, the eyes were mainly on the party that isn’t in power—the Republican Party. After counting most of the results, it seems that Donald Trump has managed to defeat Nikki Haley, albeit by a relatively small margin (55-45%). The delegates that New Hampshire sends to the Republican National Convention will be divided proportionally between the two.

The victory is an energy boost for Trump and reaffirms that his path to the White House is likely paved. Even when all of his opponents gathered behind a single candidate (Haley), he managed to win. For Haley, the loss is a blow, but not fatal, as Haley has managed to position herself as a significant rival to Trump. If Haley works properly over the next month and in the next few elections, she may be able to gain enough momentum to keep going until the end. Both Haley and Trump reiterate their great commitment to Israel, both politically and militarily.

The Democratic Party also had primaries, but unofical. The story is as follows: Traditionally, Iowa and New Hampshire were the first states to vote in each party’s primaries. But two years ago, the Democratic Party Committee changed procedures under Biden’s influence, and Iowa and New Hampshire were pushed back in favor of South Carolina, Nevada, and Michigan. Iowa accepted the verdict, but New Hampshire didn’t—and decided to hold the primaries anyway, in an underground fashion.

In response, the Democratic National Convention announced that it would not accept delegates from the New Hampshire primary, making the entire event unnecessary and symbolic. Biden decided not to register as a candidate in the underground elections, and therefore did not appear on the voting ballot – but his supporters in the state registered his name manually, winning Biden the election despite not having registered at all, by a large margin. This shows Biden’s strength in the party, and that he will almost certainly win another nomination, despite criticism of his advanced age or various policy measures. Biden, we should mention, supports Israel in the war – and whatever criticism against him, there is no doubt that he is preferable to many others in the Democratic Party.
