It's been less than 24-hours since former Democrat frontrunner Joe Biden placed fifth in the New Hampshire primary, producing panic among the "moderates" in the Party that his candidacy might be over. From POLITICO:
“This is horrendous. We’re all scared,” said a Biden adviser, speaking anonymously because the comments conflict with the brave public face the campaign is trying to broadcast. “I think we’re going to make it to South Carolina. I know we’re supposed to say we’re going to and we’re going to win. But I just don’t know.”
Despite his first place showing, communist Bernie Sanders had a lower turnout than expected. He performed worse against his current rivals than he did against Hillary Clinton in 2016. Another bad sign.
As the results came in Tuesday night, former Obama administration official and CNN host Van Jones poured cold water over the chances any candidate in the Democrat field can actually beat President Trump in a general election.
"It just feels like everybody is partially able to take on Trump but not really," Jones said. "There is no one candidate yet that feels, that everybody feels can actually go up against [Trump] and beat him."

He's right. Last night President Trump made history with a massive turnout in the Granite State.
