Around 90 students packed the Collis Center’s TV lounge on Tuesday night to watch the results of the New Hampshire primary unfold. TVs around the room featured live coverage from CNN, MSNBC and the local WMUR9, while ABC’s Devin Dwyer ’05 broadcasted from the event throughout the evening.
After months of town halls, rallies and stump speeches, the 2020 New Hampshire Democratic presidential primary ended with Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) claiming the top spot with 25.7 percent of the votes, the Associated Press projects as of press time. South Bend, IN mayor Pete Buttegieg narrowly followed with 24.4 percent of the vote, and Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) garnered 19.7 percent of the vote to make a comeback third-place win.
If the New Hampshire election results hold at the time I’m writing this column, this newspaper will likely be announcing a victory for Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders in the Democratic primary — or at least a very good finish. With what has been described as a functional home-state advantage, Sanders won the 2016 New Hampshire primary against Hillary Clinton by a whopping 22 points. His closest competitor in the polls here this year is former South Bend, IN mayor Pete Buttigieg, who is benefitting from unease in the moderate segment of the party after former vice president Joe Biden’s weak showing in the Iowa caucuses. Biden is still polling just two points behind Sanders nationally, but New Hampshire and Iowa have clearly demonstrated that moderate voters are far more inclined to vote strategically and switch their vote in order to get a candidate that they agree with in office. But are these self-proclaimed pragmatists really playing the game with a winning strategy?
If the polls are any indication, Bernie Sanders is surging. He lost the Iowa caucuses by a razor-thin margin against Pete Buttigieg and did very well in New Hampshire.
“One Child Nation,” directed by award-winning documentarian Nanfu Wang, is one of the first documentaries to delve into China’s one-child policy. While it does so in an innovative way, the film lacks objectivity and coherence in telling the story.
When asked in a recent poll by The Dartmouth how they would describe the state of American politics in one word, students generally gave negative answers.
The ceramics studio provides access to materials, a team of professionals to guide students just starting out, and a space for students looking to get involved with arts on campus. Sunlight streams in from wide windows on the far wall of the studio, falling on shelves lined with student-made ceramic vessels. The studio creates an atmosphere for students of any level to take a break from their work and de-stress by making something with their hands.
With voters in New Hampshire heading to the polls today for the first-in-the-nation presidential primary, Dartmouth students are closely divided in their preferred candidates, according to a poll conducted by The Dartmouth this past weekend.
For the past three decades, voters in Hanover and Grafton County have consistently cast their ballots for progressive candidates, a pattern that may continue when local voters participate in today’s Democratic primary election.
This past weekend, campus buzzed with energy not only from Winter Carnival festivities, but also because of several visits from presidential candidates leading up to the New Hampshire primary. Former South Bend, IN mayor Pete Buttigieg and Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) spoke at separate events in the Hopkins Center for the Arts on Saturday, while entrepreneur Andrew Yang and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) held events on Sunday at the Top and the Hop and the Hanover Inn, respectively.
Students and Dartmouth community members will flock to the polls today, hoping to play their part in what is shaping up to be a historic presidential primary. While the College’s role in the New Hampshire primary varies from past years, the unique circumstances surrounding the primary and role of students in Democratic politics makes this year’s primary particularly consequential. This year’s primary comes with particular weight following a failed presidential impeachment trial, a closely watched and contested caucuses, and the confusion surrounding New Hampshire House Bill 1264.
Two Dartmouth students are awaiting a decision by the New Hampshire Supreme Court on their ACLU-backed voting rights case against New Hampshire Secretary of State Bill Gardner (D) and NH Attorney General Gordon MacDonald (R) regarding New Hampshire House Bill 1264. The bill, which was signed into law by Gov. Chris Sununu (R) in March, modified the definition of a New Hampshire “resident” and “residency.”
The town of Hanover has coordinated with the College to facilitate voter registration in preparation for today’s presidential primary election.
After the disorganization of the Iowa Democratic caucuses last week — with the Associated Press announcing that they were unable to declare a winner — the eyes of the nation are now focused on the New Hampshire primary. Although New Hampshire Secretary of State Bill Gardner (D) has predicted that a record 420,000 people will show up to the polls today, many voters have said that they are beginning to lose faith in the political system. Ahead of today’s election, The Dartmouth took to the streets of Hanover to gauge people’s faith in the electoral system.
After two or three years, Hanover can begin to feel small. No matter how honed your pong skills might be, we all crave a break eventually. To many, the idea of a Dartmouth foreign study program — the wildly different experience of going to school in another corner of the globe — is certainly attractive.
Flip to any news channel or open any newspaper or news site — or take a stroll across Dartmouth’s campus — and I doubt you’ll be able to last more than a few minutes without encountering the concept of “electability.” With the upcoming Democratic primary and New Hampshire’s today, voters want to pick whoever they think has the best chance of defeating Donald Trump come November. And while there are many bright, politically astute people on this campus and in this town who are wrestling with this concept and this decision today, I encourage them to fret not — because the concept of “electability” and everything it entails should be your last priority at the voting booth.
The Big Green had a challenging weekend at home against Brown University and Yale University, getting down early in both games and falling short in its comeback attempts. After opening Ivy League play with a win against Harvard University, Dartmouth has now lost its last five conference games, including the last four at home, and eight of its last nine games overall.
Through this column, I’ve been fortunate enough to teach my faithful readers some life lessons. A few weeks ago, I went straight to my social psychology textbook and discussed the power of the situation. Last week, I gave my East Coast audience an introduction to California culture — and probably shocked any investment banker readers by proposing the notion of going to work in khaki shorts and polo shirts. I don’t need to check the records to know that my dad rocked such a combination Monday morning. Or he might have hit the gym in the morning to blow off steam and then gone straight to the office in workout clothes. Those are the only two possibilities.
At some point, the Dartmouth men’s basketball team is going to have to turn its bursts of success into wins.
