America has now reached a point in the 2020 race where caucuses and primary elections are happening in various states across the nation.
On the GOP side, President Trump has a significant advantage, as the incumbent candidate and has won in both Iowa and New Hampshire thus far. On the Democrat side, however, things are a little trickier and more complex. Candidates continue to duke it out with one another, hoping to be victorious and pave their way to winning their party’s nomination and taking on Trump.

Yesterday night marked the New Hampshire primary election. According to Breitbart News, 2020 Democrat Bernie Sanders won this primary, followed by rivals Pete Buttigieg and Amy Klobuchar. As the socialist senator learned of his win in the Granite State, he wasted no time in trying to milk it for all it’s worth.
When speaking with supporters, Sanders touted his victory in New Hampshire as the “beginning of the end” for President Trump.
A Closer Look at Sanders’ Win in New Hampshire
The socialist senator’s New Hampshire victory was declared after learning of 80% of the primary’s results.
Joined by his wife, Jane Sanders, and surrounded with supporters, Sanders expressed gratitude for those who worked to further his campaign in New Hampshire, Then, after brazenly declaring his victory in the Granite State as the “beginning of the end” for the president, Sanders praised the political process in and of itself.
Per his own admission, the socialist candidate’s campaign will be traveling to Nevada and South Carolina in order to perform well in these states. Tooting his own horn, Sanders touted his presidential campaign as “an unprecedented grassroots movement” that will take on Trump.
Furthermore, Sanders professed that winning the presidency will allow him to ensure that the government and economy work well for all Americans; of course, the socialist’s far-left policies will guarantee precisely the opposite, but Sanders’ supporters cheered for his every word nevertheless.
What Happens Now?
Sanders’ success in the New Hampshire primary does not mean that he will go on to win his party’s nomination.
The Democrat establishment has had their eyes set on Joe Biden and Mike Bloomberg for quite some time now. 2016 proved that DNC higher-ups are more than capable of pulling strings to get their favored candidate as the party’s nominee; however, Biden has yet to win a single primary or caucus. Meanwhile, Bloomberg is under fire for remarks he made years ago during his stint as the mayor of New York City.

Only time will tell which candidate wins their party’s nomination. However, if Sanders does manage to weasel his way into becoming the Democrat nominee and challenging Trump, the 2020 general election will be that of socialism vs. freedom, big government vs. individual liberty, and America’s decline vs. America first.
