New Hampshire 2016 election results

November 10, 2016

 Contrary to the national popular belief New Hampshire remains a solidly purple state, it is not the blue state many people think it is and this was evident in Tuesday’s election. Hillary Clinton may have won the state’s 4 electoral college votes while Democrats Maggie Hassan and Carol Shea-Porter won their Senate and House of Representative bids respectively, but the state elections paint a slightly different picture.

  Republican Chris Sununu became the first Republican governor in the state in 12 years, while the Republicans held on to a 3-2 majority in the Executive Council. The Republicans also won a 13-10 majority in the State Senate and hold a 201-161 majority in the State House.

  With the Republicans in solid control of both the executive branch and the legislative branch of state government it is going to be very interesting to watch what happens in the state over the next two years. The Republicans should be able to get their agenda passed. Maggie Hassan was a popular governor but the truth is she was held in check by the Republicans–especially on the budget which she took credit for even though she vetoed it–and now it is possible the Republicans will get the credit for what Maggie Hassan somehow successfully took credit for.

    Hopefully they’ll start cleaning out the cesspool and not become part of it!
    This is a bit OT but he makes some vital points I think:

    Being freed from the Clinton and Bush dynasties would be good for all Real Americans (for those sucked into the Globalist hole, they won’t comprehend this).

      Trump managed to take out both the Bush and the Clinton dynasties, it really is a remarkable feet. It makes you wonder about him though, how did he do it if he was not part of the globalist scheme?

        Let’s pray God’s influence on him is GREATER. Anyone born of the flesh has a sin nature that leans to corruption and lies. Being born of the Spirit of God is the opposite, but the sin nature still fights to rule – that’s why we’re to reckon it dead. Bush feigned ‘Faith’ but in what and in who? Reminds me of Ahab who married Jezebel: ‘And he reared up an altar for Baal in the house of Baal, which he had built in Samaria. And Ahab made a grove; and Ahab did more to provoke the LORD God of Israel to anger …’ 1 Kings 16:32-33 Brings to mind the Bohemian Grove and how both families indulged themselves in that. Notice the ’33’ in connection w/ grove and proving the LORD.
        So who know Steve maybe Trump(ets) can do something more godly than the cesspool we’ve been under for generations!

        Thanks for sharing that video! I hope Trump will be influenced by God but I have to admit I wonder if he is really all that faithful.

    I think this effect is also true in other states. There is a split between urban and university counties and rural counties. I think people in the urban counties are used to big government, unions and the welfare state. Counties dominated by a universitiy are hot beds of liberal thought.

    The state rebublican party may not be as damaged as a brand as the national brand. Also the purple states have been effective in dilluting the voting effect of the urban areas by creating voting districts that lean in their favor.

    Who were the Trump voters. A surprise it’s not who the media said it was.

    I called my 2 1/2 year old grandson Wednesday morning and asked who he voted for? He replied trumpet grandpa trumpet. I then asked him who is president? Trumpet grandpa. I laughed my ass off. It’s never too early to start the indoctrination! 🐘🐘🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸
