Trump Will Win New Hampshire & It Will Be A ‘Red Tide’ Come November 2016!

I hope I am wrong, but I don’t think so.

Hillary Clinton is NO Barack Hussein Obama II and Hillary’s continued stumbles, yesterday’s health flap among them, continue to weaken her case. And remember she did NOT carry New Hampshire in the primary. There are still a lot of disgruntled Bernie supporters lurking among the goldenrods.

Those that know me know that I am a keen, diligent and incisive observer of local politics — plus after all the door-to-door campaigning I did in 2008 & 2012 for Obama I can tell which way the winds are blowing when it comes to the Lakes Region.

I also carefully study political road signs. In my experience in New Hampshire (and that is the only state that I know in this matter) the presidential candidate with LESS SIGNS invariably wins the State! Check it out. In 2012 if you went by the blanketing of Romney signs across the State then Romney should have carried NH by a Landslide. Obama won NH by 40,659 votes in 2012 (and I knew he would). Yesterday, in Alton, I saw more Hillary signs than Trump. Not good. Trump supporters are NOT bothering with the signs because they don’t have to. Preaching to the choir and all of that.

So, you have been warned.

Revisiting My Exclusive New Hampshire ‘Red-Blue Map’ From 2012 — Obama v. Romney. NH Will Be MORE Red In 2016.

by Anura Guruge


In 2012, contradicting what you would have thought if you just went by all of the roadside political signs you saw in New Hampshire, President Barack Obama again won New Hampshire (a battleground state, and superficially ‘red’), by 40,659 votes (5.8%).

The NH voting was done in terms of 237 ‘towns’; Obama won 142, lost 94 and one, Dixville, was a tie.

Of the 10 NH Counties, Obama won 7, lost 3.

I painstakingly created these maps (in November 2012) to see how this victory was wrought.

As some of you know I campaigned like a black for Obama in 2008 & 2012 — going door-to-door (at least 450 houses in each instance), doing phone-banks, making signs, stuffing bags, taking people to the polls on election day and feeding (on my own dime) the other Obama volunteers in Laconia on multiple nights.

I haven’t volunteered as yet in 2016 for the Presidential election — though yesterday I marched in the Gilford ‘Old Home Day’ parade, with Devanee, for our friend, Lisa DiMartino who is running as a Democrat for a seat in the New Hampshire House (District 2: Gilford & Meredith).

 I am, for all my shortcomings, a keen observer and follower of New Hampshire politics. The 2016 ‘RedBlue‘ map will be DIFFERENT to that of 2012. It will be MORE RED!

I could be wrong, I HOPE I am wrong, BUT I do NOT think it is a given that Hillary Clinton will carry New Hampshire.

I agree that there is a HIDDEN Trump vote that is not reflected in the polls.

So those that think that New Hampshire is still ‘Blue’ could be in for a NASTY surprise.

Just a Heads Up.
