I must admit that I was greatly amused to learn that all of the polls and pundits regarding the New Hampshire primary elections were WRONG.
As a longtime member of the pundit world in which my thoughts on anything are held in fairly high esteem, I got down on my knees last night and thanked a merciful God that I did not weigh in with an opinion on the event or the candidates.
The truth is that I rarely write about politics and the reason is simple enough; there are so many others that do. Moreover, every citizen of the United States of America has their own opinion on matters political and this is as it should be.
The New Hampshire primary will be seen in hindsight as a triumph of political organizing. It will be noted that Hillary’s campaign managed to get every potential voter, including a few found in intensive care units, to the polls to pull the lever or to gingerly touch the screens of scary new computerized voting machines.
It is significant, however, that the print and broadcast media journalists and experts got it so wrong in the lead-up to the actual vote count. Some of them even admitted falling in love with Barack Hussein Obama or feeling sympathetic to Hillary.
It is thus essential to keep in mind that we have many more primaries to go including February’s “Super Tuesday” which should decide which candidates secure sufficient delegates to their respective political conventions to wrap up the nomination. If, however, both parties remain sufficiently divided, we are in for a historic election year.
