Video: No Hillary votes in Dixville Notch?

posted at 8:41 am on February 9, 2016 by Ed Morrissey

For 66 years, the small town of Dixville Notch has led the voting for New Hampshire’s first-in-the-nation primary. Fox’s Carl Cameron estimates that sixty reporters showed up for the midnight vote, which put the reporter-to-voter ratio at, oh … about 7:1. Nine voters cast their ballot last night, and you were there. Or not.

Voters in Dixville Notch gave John Kasich a 3-2 win over Donald Trump, while Bernie Sanders pitched a 4-0 shutout over Hillary Clinton. It turns out that Dixville Notch wasn’t alone in opening up the polls early:

In Hart’s Location, a town with a population of 43 that claims to have originated the midnight voting tradition in 1952 to accommodate the schedules of railroad workers, Kasich also edged out Trump, 5 votes to 4, with New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie gathering 2 votes. Bush, neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson, and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio one vote each.

Sanders had the most votes on the Democratic side again, with 12, followed by Clinton with 7, but it was the third name gathering 2 votes that surprised some. It was not Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley, who dropped out of the Democratic race after Iowa, but Mark Stewart Greenstein, a self-described “liberty-leaning Democrat” who was the first to file for the Primary back in November, according to NECN.

In Millsfield, a small township just south of Dixville, Clinton was given a win on the Democratic side, edging Sanders 2 votes to 1. On the Republican side, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz won handily with 9 votes, followed by Trump with 3 and Bush, Christie, Kasich, Rubio, former CEO Carly Fiorina, and Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul – who also suspended his campaign after Iowa – with 1 vote each.

At daybreak, at least, we have a three-way tie at 9 each for Cruz, Trump, and Kasich. Sanders have a 17-9 lead over Hillary, while Greenstein has two votes … and that may mean a big upset in the making for Democrats. Or not.

A good beginning.

You just wait. The fleet of semis were late. There were actually 6,000 votes “found” for Hillary, and if it came to a coin flip she’d win anyway.

No Hillary votes in Dixville Notch?

She’ll still get the delegates….

Rogue on February 9, 2016 at 8:46 AM

They voted for the middle ground between Shillary and The Bern: Kasich!

She’ll win Dixville Notch in the official results submitted later today.

The only thing that matters today is that Rubio ends up in 4th or below.

portlandon on February 9, 2016 at 8:48 AM

I don’t know, that vote on the Democratic side looks too close to call. Bring in the two-headed coin to decide it.

NotCoach on February 9, 2016 at 8:49 AM

Hillary anxiously watches the vote.

He’ll be awesome in the General Election campaign against Bernie.

As I posted on another thread,

Dixville Notch is to politics what Gobbler’s Knob is to Groundhog Day. Meaningless tradition. Much like the nominating conventions these days.

Given the polling, it is clear that Sanders and Trump are going to “win” with all the interest going to debate over just how much Blue “didn’t lose” and the significance of being second, third, or last in the GOP line-up.

Too small a population to throw your vote away.

It doesn’t matter. A court document issued officially by the FBI is still just rumor and innuendo.

No votes for Clinton or Bush. Satisfying if nothing else.

I read an article yesterday that basically said if he finishes in the top 5 he wins. It was some serious twisted logic.

Kaisch is the Jon Huntsman of this cycle – and will ultimately share the same fate. The sane, rational voters of the SEC primaries will see to that. Unlike the morons in New Hampshire.

As for the mockery, I’ll mock Paulians till the day I die, however, I will suspend for those who join up, especially those who join Cruz.

Now, those who either go feel the Bern or decide to cut off their nose to spite their face…full mockery.

Comrade Pantsuit wins ALL coin tosses over Comrade Senator Sanders. She’s just that lucky.

With only a 4 vote margin I fully expect the “recount” to go to The Hildabeast once she gets her lawyers in there.

Don’t nix it. Lots of voting left.

A Trump Cruz 1-2 finish would be stunning.

Happy Nomad on February 9, 2016 at 9:19 AM

Don’t be fooled by the map-Dixville “looks” close to the Canadian border, but it’s still a long haul from Dixville to the Pittsburg border crossing, as I drove it a few years ago. I’ve lived in NH most of my life and always wanted to see that part of the state so I made a day of it.

Dixville Notch is about 15 minutes east of Colebrook, the largest city in NH. And from Colebrook to the Canadian border is at least another hour’s driving time-1/2 hour to Pittsburg village, and then another 1/2 hour plus up past the Connecticut Lakes thru Moose Alley. Aptly named, as moose are easily visible even in the daylight hours.

I did something really cool to end that trip, namely parking at the Border Patrol office and hiking the “4th Connecticut Lake Trail”, which provides access to the ultimate source of the Connecticut River. The trail actually follows the cleared international border “demilitarized zone” for 1/2 a mile before veering into the woods to the tiny pond, which nowadays is more like a bog. Sad to say, no fishing allowed!

RockyMtnGirl on February 9, 2016 at 9:36 AM

I missed that he even came first in one vote.

On the Republican side, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz won handily with 9 votes,

Need. Moar. Coffee.

Don’t nix it. Lots of voting left.

A Trump Cruz 1-2 finish would be stunning.

cozmo on February 9, 2016 at 9:42 AM

Coz, I have to admit I had pretty much written NH off for Cruz, so seeing those results so early has actually given me a degree of hope that he’ll get delegates. I would love a 1-2 Trump Cruz, but mostly I want Rubio knocked down to keep the establishment lane split. I can multitask, though. ;-)

RockyMtnGirl on February 9, 2016 at 9:46 AM

It should be interesting to see how much Vote and Voter Fraud the Democrats will try today here, because for the first time NH will require Photo ID for anyone wishing to vote. Anyone not producing a photo ID will have to sign an affidavit, and then (horror of horrors!) have their picture taken.

For years the Democrats would bus up college students from MA, have them register to vote in NH, and then take them back home. Good little Socialists, indeed!

Del Dolemonte on February 9, 2016 at 9:47 AM

Everybody did. He is/was expected to finish fourth, or fifth.
