The weather was great, they were running out of Democratic ballots, its been a busy day in the Granite state.
MSNBC is running a crawler now showing Hillary is in the lead with the few exit polls they have shown..but its almost a dead heat with Obama..the vote split between them in the mid 30 percentile.
Edwards is running a distant third with 17% of the exit poll votes..
MSNBC’s running talley will be listed here. The NH Sec Of State will show the complete vote total here. Enjoy all you political junkies, of which I am a card-carrying member. What I find more interesting is the demographic breakdown here.
Like it matters lol..also..a factoid..NH voters, since 1976 have voted opposite of the Iowa caucus folks every time but one. Evidently they aren’t fond of the mid-west. Now, the Dixville votes:
DIXVILLE NOTCH (Reuters) – Sen. Barack Obama won seven of the 10 votes cast for Democrats in the first balloting of the New Hampshire primary on Tuesday in the northern hamlet of Dixville Notch, while Sen. John McCain won the Republican balloting.
Ballots by all 17 registered voters were cast and counted just after midnight on Tuesday in the remote White Mountain town that takes advantage of a state law allowing communities to close polls once voting is over and announce the results.
Other than those for Obama, of Illinois, former North Carolina Sen. John Edwards got two votes and New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson received one. New York Sen. Hillary Clinton received none.
Among the seven votes cast for Republicans, Arizona Sen. John McCain won four, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney received 2, and former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani won one vote.
The balloting was over within minutes as 12 Independents, 3 Republicans and 2 Democrats voted.
