“I am a rightly-dividing evangelical King James Bible believer (a tiny minority among so called “Christians”) that supports Mr. Trump (a vastly larger number).”

“I assisted with door-to-door campaigning in New Hampshire and South Carolina, assembly of lawn signs, phone banking and assisting with various small tasks that needed to be done in the headquarters building.”

“I am supporting Mr. Trump because I know for a fact, not just believe, that he wants to turn this country around. He, as well as millions of other Americans, have witnessed in their lifetime this once great country take a free-fall towards oblivion. As a patriotic American, he has an opportunity to do something to stop this country from destruction. History has proven that no civilization is immune from a catastrophic collapse. Mr. Trump wants to do whatever he can to keep that from happening, at least for the foreseeable future.”

“This common core garbage in the schools is dumbing down the nation’s youth. The entire Dept. of Education is unconstitutional. Education is one of the many matters reserved to the localities and states. Far more college students are assigned to read the Communist Manifesto than the Federalist Papers which was written by men who had a key part in the founding of this nation.”

Clinton Beats Sanders by 50%

Hillary Clinton beat Bernie Sanders by almost 50 % in the South Carolina primary. Clinton was expected to win big thanks to her support among African-Americans, but how big she won is still a surprise.

While Sanders is focused on Super Tuesday (he didn’t even campaign much in South Carolina), Clinton showed in her victory speech that she has her eyes set on the general election.

Clinton and Trump Win, Bush Suspends

An exiting day in both presidential primary-races ended with Jeb Bush suspending his campaign, after he only scored a single-digit result in the South Carolina Republican primary.

Donald Trump won South Carolina with 30+ points, while Marco Rubio regained his momentum by narrowly beating Ted Cruz for second place.

In Nevada, Hillary Clinton beat Bernie Sanders, which brings her back to track as the Democratic front-runner. Sanders managed to attract Latino voters, but the African-American vote went decisively to Clinton.

The parties are switching states next week, with the Nevada Republican Caucus on February 23 and the South Carolina Democratic Primary on February 27, before the Super Tuesday showdown on March 1.

“I am here in New Hampshire to help out on the Hillary campaign. Came from New York City last Tuesday and will be here till after the primary. Then I will fly to South Carolina”

 “This is something I have always wanted to do. I worked for women’s rights back in the 60ies and 70ies, and this [a female president] is like the last barrier that we haven’t broken. It’s kinda personal for women my age.”

“I am out canvassing. A lot of people of course are not home, because they are working during the day. But I was lucky in the areas that I was in, I have been getting about a fifty percent rate of actually talking to people. If they have any questions. I always ask what their concerns are. And sometimes we are able to talk them over, which is really rewarding.”
