Trump Breaks Record For Most Votes In NH Primary

Surging toward his third consecutive Republican nomination, former President Donald Trump set a voter record on Tuesday, winning the first 2024 Republican primary election in New Hampshire.

With his record number of votes, Trump delivered a major blow to his remaining political opponent and former United Nations Ambassador, Nikki Haley.

“Could somebody please explain to Nikki Haley that she lost and lost badly? She also lost Iowa, BIG, last week. They were, as certain Non-Fake Media says, ‘CRUSHING DEFEATS,‚Äô” Trump said in a Truth Social post.

The New Hampshire primary was called in favor of the MAGA favorite shortly after polls closed on Tuesday. Despite losing to Trump in the Iowa Caucus and New Hampshire primary, Nikki Haley refuses to withdraw from the presidential race.

Haley placed third in the Iowa Caucus behind former President Trump and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R), who backed out of the 2024 presidential race a few days before the New Hampshire primary and surprisingly endorsed Trump. In another Truth Social post, Trump celebrated his record-breaking votes in New Hampshire.

“SUCH AN HONOR: I JUST BROKE THE ALL-TIME RECORD FOR VOTES CAST – BOTH SIDES, DEMOCRAT AND REPUBLICAN – IN THE HISTORY OF THE NEW HAMPSHIRE PRIMARY!” Trump said in his Truth Social post.

In Tuesday’s primary, more than 300,000 votes were cast, breaking the record for the previous high set in 2016. In his victory speech, former President Trump said Haley would find herself under investigation if she became the Republican nominee and then said she had no chance of beating him.

‚ÄúThis is why so many voters want to move on from Trump‚Äôs chaos and are rallying to Nikki Haley‚Äôs new generation of conservative leadership. If Trump is in such good shape, why is he so angry?‚ÄĚ Haley‚Äôs campaign said.

Haley conceded to Trump and congratulated him on his record-breaking victory, but said the race was far from over. Haley insists she can turn her second-place ranking in New Hampshire into an even stronger finish in her home state of South Carolina, where she was twice elected governor.

With Trump continuing to break records, Haley would need to pull off a miracle in her home state, which is unlikely.
