8:01 am
a great threat to the world and should be considered public enemy number one. hello bernie sanders has narrowly won the new hampshire democratic primary the veteran senator from vermont maintain the u.s. is ready for a left wing policies and speaking to his supporters he offered a message a few nitze meanwhile has come in a close 2nd in new hampshire the 38 year old former mayor urged his supporters to welcome a new generation off leadership so we have 2 correspondents following the story kristen salumi standing by for us in nashua but 1st we'll bring in political hand in manchester they were saying patty bernie sanders is now the projected winner but it was a tight race between sanders about it it's. incredibly tight now keep in mind for you. years ago when bernie sanders came to this state
8:02 am
faceoff hillary clinton he took 60 percent of the vote right now we're looking at about 25.8 percent to. 24.4 percent so a couple of differences that he's facing a whole lot more candidates than he was 4 years ago but that's a significant drop in the amount of the number of voters he has what you're seeing play out here is a huge desire and there were exit polls today people stop people coming out of the polls and say what is your biggest priority the majority of democrats said hands down the top priority getting someone who can beat donald trump so now they're having this internal debate we saw it in iowa we saw here in new hampshire how do you do that you do it by being like sanders being incredibly progressive very much to the far left proposing things like a racing college tuition debt free college or do you need to be more of a centrist which is what pete is he's a really unknown he's incredibly young he's a veteran and he was the mayor of
8:03 am
a very small town in indiana so do you want to go centrist or do you want to go far left regardless all of the candidates who came out to talk about these results they had one message and that was they can beat donald trump because they know that's what their base their democrats want to hear. that this victory. is the beginning of the end but donald trump in the model who says we certainly hope it's going to be we have good thing. was going to go and defeat the most dangerous president in the modern history of this country. of. and here's why those words matter coming from bernie sanders because if you look at his supporters from the primary 4 years ago a lot of them just simply didn't show up they didn't vote for hillary clinton and
8:04 am
that made the difference between a victory for donald trump and a defeat so there's a big concern in the democratic party that that could happen again you'll notice 2 of the people who we expected to be the front runners were really far behind that's former vice president joe biden said there are elizabeth warren they though say they're not giving up and this is why it's a little bit different i married this this time around because the democratic party is getting more and more diverse and that is not what's happening in these 2 primary caucus states the 1st to iowa new hampshire both overwhelmingly white so what you're hearing from those candidates that expected to do much better is well wait till we get to nevada wait to get to south carolina where there's a much bigger minority population and they are banking that this isn't going to be predictive as it has in most modern political history that they can still change to still turn around for those 2 former front runners but after these 2 contests
8:05 am
nowhere close to being in the start of the pack all right patty thank you for that update let's bring in christine salumi she's joining us from a party or what seemed to be a watch party just a short while ago for pete going to change over and it now that he has come in 2nd . is that slowing him down at all. and how much momentum is he saying he has going forward. well the crowd here was very energized as was the mare of south bend himself coming out to chants of pete for president he clearly has some momentum behind him that started in iowa where he actually pulled slightly ahead of bernie sanders he was 2nd here but still did much better than expected this really is bernie territory in new hampshire he's got a strong base of support here that goes back to 2016 where as just a year ago buddha gedge was a relatively unknown mayor of south bend indiana relatively small midwestern city in fact his competitors have criticized him for his lack of experience but he
8:06 am
has attempted to make a virtue of it saying that people are tired of the same old thing in washington they want something new and certainly we heard that in the supporters that we spoke to here today they said that they are looking for someone who can reach across the aisle who can work with republicans and compromise someone who's less polarizing not only than donald child but perhaps than bernie sanders that's what the supporters here were saying judge himself said that beating trial will mean that democrats have to compromise too. politics of my way or the highway is a road to reelect and donald trump. vulnerable americans do not have the luxury of pursuing ideological purity over an inclusive victory we also know better than to try to defeat such a disruptive president by relying on the same washington framework in mind after
