NBC News projects that Bernie Sanders has won the NH primary, Pete Buttigieg came in second, and Amy Klobuchar will come in third. But Steve Kornacki explains how Buttigieg will get the same number of delegates as Sanders.
“Currently, there is no known way to secure a digital ballot. At this time, any election that does not employ paper ballots cannot be secured,” Dr. Gilbert said. “Therefore, the report recommended that Internet voting, and specifically the electronic return of marked ballots, should not be used at this time.”
House Administration Committee Chairperson Zoe Lofgren commended Dr. Gilbert on the presentation of the report’s findings and the excellent work done by the National Academies. She noted that the report was “the guts of what we ended up putting in our SAFE [Securing America’s Federal Elections] Act that’s now pending in the Senate.”
The name Prime III was chosen because it’s a third generation voting system. Dr. Juan E. Gilbert defines voting systems by generation. First generation voting was done with mechanical equipment and paper, e.g. lever machines, punch cards, etc. Second generation voting uses computers, e.g. optical scan, DRE. Third generation devices are multimodal, e.g. Prime III, AutoMark. These are machines that accommodate multiple voters on one machine using multimodality. Prime III is a third generation voting device that allows voters to cast their ballot using touch, voice or both..
After piloting Prime III in selected wards in the 2014 primary election, the New Hampshire Department of State modified the software to accommodate the requirements of the state’s election code and debuted the system in the Presidential primary on February 9, 2016. Prime III can also be used through Gilbert’s other voting systems: Balloting and Televoting. The Balloting system enables voters to fill out their ballots online or through their phone. Once the ballot is completed, the voter will get a QR code that can be scanned at a Prime III-enabled voting machine to speed up the voting process.Televoting allows military and overseas voters to fill out their ballots through Prime III online and have it printed back at their home precinct.
Roughly 19% of New Hampshire voters have a disability, according to James Ziegra, a staff attorney at advocacy group Disability Rights Center-New Hampshire, who will be onsite to see Butler’s vote in Hart’s Location.
All New Hampshire voters vote with paper ballots, which they either mark by hand with pens or pencils or indirectly using touchscreen voting machines.
Democrats for Democracy eh?
Here’s CNN’s estimate of the New Hampshire delegate count:
Bernie Sanders: 9
Pete Buttigieg: 9
Amy Klobuchar: 6
Combined with Iowa delegates, Buttigieg now has a total of 23, Sanders has 21 and Klobuchar has 7.
Sanders, der 78 Jahre alte Senator aus Vermont, lag demnach bei 26 Prozent, gefolgt von den moderat-pragmatischen Bewerbern Pete Buttigieg (24,3 Prozent) und Amy Klobuchar (19,9 Prozent). Weit abgeschlagen folgten die Senatorin Elizabeth Warren und der frühere Vizepräsident Joe Biden, die bei den Delegiertenstimmen leer ausgehen dürften.
The survey shows Buttigieg at 25 percent and Sanders at 24 percent support among likely Democratic primary voters in New Hampshire, according to Suffolk’s latest daily tracking poll results from Thursday and Friday evenings. Buttigieg has surged 10 percentage points over three nights.
No Democrat in modern times has lost contested races in both Iowa and New Hampshire and claimed the nomination.
The early primary and caucus outcomes could have an outsize impact on later primaries, including the large states voting in March, some of which begin collecting mail-in and early ballots in the immediate aftermath of Iowa.
The option notably also gives an opportunity to former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg to make the debate stage.
Since Bloomberg is self-funding his campaign, he failed to meet the DNC’s donor threshold for previous debates. If he wins at least one delegate in Iowa, he would have an opportunity to debate in New Hampshire.
Sanders registered 23 percent support among Democratic primary voters in the state, a slight drop from the 26 percent he carried in a similar poll conducted in November. But Buttigieg also fell from 22 percent support in November to 18 percent, giving Sanders a bigger lead.
Rounding out the top four in New Hampshire are former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), who tied for third place at 14 percent support each.
Ed Luce writes in the Financial Times that ‚…Sanders has good odds of winning the first Democratic caucus in Iowa next month — and New Hampshire the following week.‘ Luce joins Morning Joe to explain.
He’s in a first-place tie with Joe Biden and Pete Buttigieg in Iowa. All three are at 23%, and each would get a similar number of delegates out of the caucuses if they were to take place today, according to the CBS News Battleground Tracker. Sanders also now has a narrow edge in New Hampshire, with a two-point lead over Biden.
WASHINGTON, D.C. – People’s Action today announced that it endorses Bernie Sanders for president in 2020. People’s Action is one of the largest multiracial people’s organizations in the country made up of 40 member organizations in 30 states and representing more than a million grassroots leaders. The organization’s strong presence in Iowa, New Hampshire, and Nevada makes its support a crucial factor for success in the early primary and caucus states.
Omar is one of three members of the “squad,” a group of influential Democratic congresswomen, who have endorsed Sanders. She told the crowd that her liberal politics are sometimes labeled “radical” by critics.
“The truth is the only radicalism we are motivated by is radical love,” said Omar. “That’s why we’re calling on everyone to be moved, radically, by love for their neighbors, for their country, for our democracy, and for humanity.”
Trailing the Sanders-Warren-Buttigieg-Biden quartet was Representative Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii with 6 percent.
Sen. Bernie Sanders leads the field of hopefuls for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination in a new CNN poll released Tuesday, the latest good news for the campaign over the past month.
„As we have said from the beginning, this is a campaign built to win and planning to win,“ campaign manager Faiz Shakir told Common Dreams. „We’ve been steadily and consistently executing our strategy, even while the media analysis of our campaign has been in disarray.“
Our CNN poll conducted by the University of New Hampshire of the New Hampshire primary finds Bernie Sanders at 21%, Elizabeth Warren at 18%, Joe Biden at 15% and Pete Buttigieg at 10%. Tulsi Gabbard, Amy Klobuchar and Andrew Yang are all at 5%.
Even if we were to give Harris the benefit of the doubt, though — assuming that voters aren’t ready for a woman of color to sit in the Oval Office — how would we explain Tulsi Gabbard’s recent leap in the polls? Gabbard is now up to 5% in New Hampshire, according to a recent CNN/UNH poll, while Harris has sunk to 3%.
The 2016 Democratic Primary election was rigged by the DNC and their partners in the corporate media against Bernie Sanders.
In this 2020 election, the DNC and corporate media are rigging the election again, but this time against the American people in the early voting states of Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, and Nevada.
They are attempting to replace the roles of voters in the early states, using polling and other arbitrary methods which are not transparent or democratic, and holding so-called debates which are not debates at all but rather commercialized reality television meant to entertain, not inform or enlighten.
New Hampshire Democrats also believe that Mr. Sanders did not have the sort of organization befitting the candidate who had won the state so overwhelmingly three years ago.
Mr. Jackson, who was previously the Sanders campaign’s northeast regional director, has worked with Mr. Sanders for years, including in his senate office in Burlington, Vt. He also helped start Our Revolution, the senator’s political advocacy group.
Sanders tops the poll at 29% of likely Democratic primary voters.
Biden comes in second with 21% of the vote and Massachusetts U.S. Sen Elizabeth Warren is third in the poll with 17%.
The telephone poll was conducted Sept. 4-10 of likely N.H. primary voters and has a margin of error of +/- 3.4%.
Tulsi is speaking at the New Hampshire Democratic Party Convention in Manchester, NH.
(24. Oktober 2016)
Hillary Clinton is praising Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, saying she gets under Donald Trump’s „thin skin like nobody else.“
Clinton was joining the liberal favorite at a rally Monday at St. Anselm College in Manchester, New Hampshire, with two weeks to go before Election Day.
Elizabeth Warren Speech At New Hampshire Democratic Party Convention
Out-of-state supporters for candidates including Mr. Biden and Senator Kamala Harris also attended the event, according to interviews and social media posts. Campaigns often bus in some supporters and allies for major events. It was not clear on Saturday night to what extent the different campaigns coordinated the importing of supporters. A Warren spokeswoman declined to comment.
Nearly all of the 2020 Democratic presidential candidates are trying to rally support in New Hampshire this weekend. It’s an especially crucial state for Senators Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, two progressives from neighboring states.
It’s hard to imagine a government that is not run by millionaires whose sympathy is in no way parallel to the empathy that Tulsi Gabbard will bring to the office – a combat veteran who understands the cost of unnecessary U.S. military interventions on human life, immigration, culture, foreign relations, our environment and our ability to provide quality of life for every American, a candidate who sees connections.
For many of us, kindness and understanding are part of our daily lives. We shouldn’t have to imagine a government that acts the same way.
Tulsi is back in New Hampshire after Labor Day. If you can, please take the opportunity to meet her, imagine, then believe.
In an exclusive comment to CitizenSource, the University of New Hampshire Survey Center — one of the only DNC-approved pollsters in New Hampshire (due to the fact that they are “partners” with CNN) — explained why they wouldn’t be conducting a poll this month in the battleground state before the crucial September debate. Director Andrew E. Smith responded:
“The UNH Survey Center is funded by grants and contracts. We have contracted with CNN during this primary cycle as we have since 2000. Our polling schedule is determined by CNN and their polling budget.”
Mr. Smith, just a few days before, told a Tulsi Gabbard supporter that they would be happy to conduct a poll “if someone was willing to pay the $50,000 cost,” a cost that CNN usually covers. (Of course, even if a third party provided the funding, the poll wouldn’t count — even if it had the same methodology — simply because it wasn’t funded by CNN or another DNC-approved media organization).
Sanders and Warren were the poll’s biggest gainers, picking up 5 points and 6 points, respectively, over the same poll from April.
Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) is in fourth place at 8 percent support, followed by South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg at 6 percent and Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) at 3 percent.
Overall, 24% say they back Biden, while 19% each support Sanders and Warren. The five-point margin between Biden and the two senators matches the survey’s margin of sampling error.
Behind this top tier, 10% support South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg and 9% back California Sen. Kamala Harris. New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker and former Texas congressman Beto O’Rourke each registered 2% in the poll.
