Laura Ingraham: Biden is only helping Bernie if he stays in race after New Hampshire flop

Fox News’ Laura Ingraham said Tuesday that former Vice President Joe Biden’s decision to continue campaigning despite underwhelming performances in the first two Democratic nominating contests is hurting his competitors in the so-called “moderate” lane of the race.

The “Ingraham Angle” host said the center-left candidate to take on Bernie Sanders in the final battle for the Democratic nomination will be one of Pete Buttigieg, Michael Bloomberg or Amy Klobuchar.

“This is a come to Jesus moment for the Democrats: At this point with Biden below 10 [percentage] points [in New Hampshire], his staying in the primary past tonight is doing one thing — it’s helping Bernie Sanders,” she said.

BERNIE SANDERS PROJECTED WINNER OF NEW HAMPSHIRE PRIMARY

“The Democrats created this monster of radicalism by tolerating for a long time now this anti-free market, antibusiness, anti-law enforcement, anti-borders, and some people think anti-American strain in some quarters of their party,” she added before asking aloud whether Senate Democratic Leader Charles Schumer, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., or former President Obama should call on the 77-year-old Biden to bow out of the contest.

Ingraham said that the state of the Democratic race reminded her of the 2016 Republican primary, in which the “establishment” candidate — former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush — stayed in the race for a long time despite underwhelming performances.

Instead, Trump — the non-establishment candidate similar to Sanders — became stronger and stronger ahead of the GOP convention.

“And just like Biden is now, Jeb was the establishment. He had tons of money but once he started getting into trouble, what happened? He began attacking not Donald Trump so much, but Marco Rubio, the only other threat among the then-establishment candidates,” she said.

Of Bloomberg, Buttigieg and Klobuchar, Ingraham said Democratic moderates should coalesce behind one of the three and unite against Sanders in order to present a viable candidate to matchup against Trump.

“If I had to pick someone who would perhaps have appeal beyond just New England and a few college towns, it would be Amy Klobuchar: At least she is a senator, and she doesn’t have the Wall Street baggage that is toxic to the AOC-plus-three crowd that, of course, Michael Bloomberg does have,” she said.

“If they are going to beat Bernie Sanders, who has been a phenomenal retail politician, they need to stand united tonight behind one moderate candidate before Super Tuesday.”

Sanders calls New Hampshire win ‘beginning of the end’ for Trump

A triumphant Bernie Sanders said Tuesday night that his New Hampshire primary victory is the “beginning of the end” for President Trump.

Sanders took the stage in New Hampshire just after the race was called in his favor, with former South Bend, Ind. Mayor Pete Buttigieg trailing in second place, and Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., coming in third.

SANDERS EDGES OUT BUTTIGIEG TO WIN NEW HAMPSHIRE, AS KLOBUCHAR SURGES TO THIRD

“Let me take this opportunity to thank the people of New Hampshire for a great victory tonight and let me thank the thousands of volunteers in New Hampshire who knocked on doors in the rain, and the snow, and the cold,” Sanders said.

“This victory here is the beginning of the end for Donald Trump,” he added.

Sanders went on to express his “appreciation and respect” to all of the Democrats in the crowded 2020 primary field.

“What I can tell you with absolute certainty, and I know I speak for every one of the Democratic candidates is that no matter who wins, and we certainly hope it is going to be us, we’re going to unite together and defeat the most dangerous president in the modern history of this country,” Sanders said, while adding that, at this point, his campaign is “taking on billionaires” and “candidates funded by billionaires.”

BIDEN, WARREN WON’T GET ANY DELEGATES FROM NEW HAMPSHIRE

Sanders laid out his campaign promises, like universal healthcare, cancellation of student debt, tuition-free colleges and more.

“It’s on to Nevada. It’s on to South Carolina. It’s on to win the Democratic nomination,” he said. “And together, I have no doubt, that we will defeat Donald Trump.”

Sanders, the 78-year-old self-described democratic socialist, also claimed victory in last week’s botched Iowa caucuses Tuesday night, despite the race being called for Buttigieg. Sanders, though, declared victory in the popular vote.

Also this week, a new Quinnipiac University poll released showed Sanders leading former Vice President Joe Biden nationally, giving him front-runner status in a national poll for the first time.

“The reason I believe we are going to win is because we have an unprecedented grassroots movement from coast to coast,” Sanders said Tuesday night. “The reason that we are going to win is that we are putting together an unprecedented, multi-generational, multi-racial political movement from coast to coast which is demanding that we finally have an economy and a government that works for all of us, not wealthy campaign contributors.”

Buttigieg calls for Dem unity following strong showing in New Hampshire primary

Pete Buttigieg celebrated on Tuesday night after emerging as a close second in New Hampshire’s Democratic primary – and pulling in the same number of delegates as the winner, Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont.

Buttigieg, the former mayor of South Bend, Ind., continued his primary success streak Tuesday after narrowly pulling in the most delegates in last week’s controversial Iowa caucuses.

“Here in a state that goes by the motto ‘live free or die,’ you made up your own mind,” Buttigieg said to supporters Tuesday night inside the gymnasium of Nashua Community College. “You asserted your famous independent streak and, thanks to you, a campaign that some people said shouldn’t be here at all showed that we’re here to stay.”

WARREN CAMPAIGN MEMO OUTLINES PATH TO VICTORY IN DEMS’ ‘FRACTURED’ NOMINATING PROCESS

The New Hampshire vote made clear that the early days of the Democratic contest will be a battle largely between two men who are four decades apart in age and are ideological opposites.

Sanders is a leading progressive voice, calling for a substantial government intervention in health care and other sectors of the economy. Buttigieg has pressed for more incremental changes, giving Americans the option of retaining their private health insurance and making a point of appealing to Republicans and independents who may be dissatisfied with President Trump.

Echoing the remarks of one of his primary rivals, Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, from earlier in the evening, Buttigieg spent his time on stage pushing for unity among Democrats, while attacking Trump’s policies on issues ranging from Medicare to foreign policy.

“We are on the same team,” Buttigieg said after congratulating Sanders on his victory in the Granite State.

DAGEN MCDOWELL: WHY AREN’T 2020 DEMOCRATS GOING AFTER PETE BUTTIGIEG’S ‘BLATANT FAILURES’ AS MAYOR?

Buttigieg added: “This is our chance, our only chance, not just to end the era of Donald Trump, but to start the era that comes next…We cannot miss the mark.”

Buttigieg’s comments come following a week where he faced the harshest criticism he’s yet received from his Democratic rivals, with former Vice President Joe Biden releasing a scathing television ad slamming the former South Bend mayor’s lack of experience and in a later interview,  calling into question Buttigieg’s appeal among African American voters.

Sanders went after Buttigieg during last Friday’s debate for taking contributions from the very wealthy and suggesting he won’t stand up to “Wall Street tycoons” or “the corporate elite.” And despite her call for unity on Tuesday evening, Warren echoed Sanders’ comments during an interview on ABC’s “This Week” where she said that “the coalition of billionaires is not exactly what’s going to carry us over the top.”

His strong showing in Iowa and New Hampshire – and the volley of criticism that comes with his rise – will now follow Buttigieg as he moves on his campaign to Nevada and South Carolina – the two early voting states with a dramatically more racially diverse population than Iowa and New Hampshire. Biden is hoping to draw in his support among black voters to pull off his first primary win in South Carolina, while Sanders hopes his appeal with Latino voters will help him carry Nevada’s caucuses.

Buttigieg, however, seemed to be already looking ahead to the next primary states, telling supporters Tuesday evening that his campaign is ready to “welcome new allies.”

“Our campaign moves on to Nevada, to South Carolina, to communities across our country,” he said. “And we will welcome new allies to our movement at every step.”

Media spotlight surging Klobuchar as Sanders leads in NH

The biggest winner in the New Hampshire primary may not be the guy who actually wins it.

Bernie Sanders is projected to have captured the state, as he was expected to do, but in media terms, as expected isn’t an exciting story.

In terms of the punditocracy, Amy Klobuchar is the white-hot story of the moment. Pete Buttigieg remains a sizzling media narrative, but Klobuchar is the breakout star.

BIDEN BAILS: FORMER VP LEAVES NEW HAMPSHIRE EARLY, ABANDONING ELECTION NIGHT PARTY

The results, of course, are being viewed through the prism of expectations. A third-place finish that might be lackluster for someone else is a leap into the top tier for Amy Klobuchar, who has surged since an impressive performance in Friday’s ABC debate. A strong second-place showing for Buttigieg is equally remarkable, given that the 38-year-old started with no money or name recognition—but his expectations were rather high after earlier polls showed him neck and neck with Sanders.

Buttigieg told supporters that “a campaign that some said shouldn’t be here at all has shown that we are here to stay.”

Sanders, by contrast, was always on a glide path to victory in the state just east of Vermont, a state which he easily won in 2016. It would still be a highly significant accomplishment for a democratic socialist after essentially tying in Iowa, despite the party’s deep doubts that Bernie would be a strong nominee.

Some results are beyond spinning, and that’s the case for Joe Biden and Elizabeth Warren.

For the former vice president, who has been the national front-runner for a year, to apparently sink to fifth place, after a fourth-place flop in Iowa, is a colossal failure. That’s especially true for a candidate who has been at the heart of the impeachment drama, who has been using electability as his main calling card.

New Hampshire is a place where a candidate who shows heart can mount a comeback. Gary Hart did it with a 1984 win, Bill Clinton did it with a second-place finish in 1992, and his wife did it after a tearful coffee-shop moment in 2008. But Biden didn’t find his voice and didn’t break through. Put another way, he’s badly lost two straight contests to a man whose biggest job was governing a town of 100,000. He leaves New Hampshire with no delegates.

BLOOMBERG DISCUSSES THROWING MINORITY KIDS UP AGAINST THE WALL IN RESURFACED AUDIO

Yes, two small, predominantly white states were never a great fit for Biden. Yes, he has had—at least until now—far more African-American support than his rivals. He talked about the importance of black support again and again during his speech in South Carolina, his supposed firewall.

But Biden has dug himself a very deep hole, with even some of those who like Joe concluding he is past his prime.

A few short months ago, Warren was vying for the national lead. But she has been steadily dropping, and to apparently finish a distant fourth in a state partially blanketed by the Boston media market is a major-league miss. Maybe her stumble over Medicare for All, and tendency to disappear at debates, allowed Sanders to consolidate his progressive support. Many reporters have expressed amazement that Warren stubbornly stuck to her script, wouldn’t attack her friend Bernie, instead promoting herself as the unity candidate. She too gets zero delegates.

AWKWARD: VOTER TELLS MSNBC THAT UNFAIR COVERAGE TO SANDERS IMPACTED HER VOTE

In my view, the media are making Klobuchar the unofficial New Hampshire winner. She has good relations with the press—funny and down-to-earth—and is an experienced senator. She’s from the Midwest and doesn’t make many enemies. Some conservative pundits like her because she may be the most moderate of the Democratic liberals. And since Klobuchar often seemed teetering on the edge of elimination, she’s the surprise of the week.

Buttigieg, of course, was the guy with momentum last week, even with the Iowa fiasco delaying his moment. So after days of showering Mayor Pete with positive headlines, the press is looking for a brand-new story. And it doesn’t hurt that with Warren struggling and Andrew Yang dropping out, the Minnesota senator is the only woman credibly challenging the white guys at the top.

In her New Hampshire speech she jabbed the media for predicting her early demise. “Everyone had counted us out, even a week ago—thank you, pundits,” the senator said. She’s one of those politicians who genuinely seems to enjoy campaigning.

The downside for Klobuchar: her shoestring campaign has little organization in Nevada and South Carolina, and the Super Tuesday states are a whole different kind of challenge. She has yet to demonstrate significant black support. And, as has started to happen with Buttigieg, she’ll find tougher media scrutiny in the national spotlight.

The Biden slide has sparked new interest in Mike Bloomberg, who has skipped the first four contests while dropping more than $200 million on an ad-driven campaign. The main reason the former New York mayor got in the race was the perception that Biden was weak and Sanders needed to be stopped. The billionaire has baggage, of course, but his long-shot gamble is looking a little more plausible as he climbs in the national polls.

The other big winner, I suppose, is the country, since we actually got timely results, just like in a normal primary.

Sean Hannity blasts Bloomberg ‘stop and frisk’ comments: ‘It’s alarming, it’s revealing’

Sean Hannity ripped Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg after audio of him defending “stop and frisk” and making other controversial comments about minorities resurfaced this week.

“It’s alarming. It’s revealing,” Hannity said Tuesday on his television program. “In fact, it is so bad some in his own party are now accusing him of actually being a racist.”

MICHAEL MOORE SLAMS ‘DISGUSTING’ DNC FOR CLEARING DEBATE PATH FOR BLOOMBERG: ‘BECAUSE HE HAS A BILLION F—ING DOLLARS!’

In an audio clip of the 2015 speech Bloomberg gave to the Aspen Institute, the billionaire acknowledged that “stop and frisk” targeted minority “kids” whom cops must throw “up against the wall” to disarm. The Aspen Times reported at the time that Bloomberg representatives asked the Institute not to distribute footage of his appearance.

“Ninety-five percent of murders- murderers and murder victims fit one M.O. You can just take a description, Xerox it, and pass it out to all the cops,” he said. “They are male, minorities, [aged] 16-25. That’s true in New York, that’s true in virtually every city … And that’s where the real crime is. You’ve got to get the guns out of the hands of people that are getting killed.”

Hannity blasted the billionaire for his comments.

“I can tell you that it is a fact that people of all races commit crimes in New York and New York City specifically, but apparently not, according to Bloomberg,” Hannity said. “Is this not the definitive definition of … racial profiling?”

The host then ripped Democrats for using identity politics as a tactic.

“As you can see, the Democratic Party, well, they really seem to only care about race, gender when they can use it to club their opponents,” Hannity said. “For them, it seems to be nothing more than a sad, divisive, predictable political tactic. Year after year after year.”

Hannity commended President Trump for his unifying message and for his policies and their impact on minorities.

“That’s the kind of hope and change that Democrats constantly promised,” Hannity said. “But it was President Trump that actually delivered that.”

Lara Trump: The New Hampshire primary has made the Democratic Party ‘very nervous’

Westlake Legal Group ac8f1ca1-Video-15 Lara Trump: The New Hampshire primary has made the Democratic Party 'very nervous' fox-news/us/us-regions/northeast/new-hampshire fox-news/shows/hannity fox-news/politics/elections/presidential-primaries fox-news/politics/elections/democrats fox-news/politics/elections/campaigning/trump-2020-campaign fox-news/person/joe-biden fox-news/person/bernie-sanders fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc Charles Creitz article 6cbb80a3-bd7d-5eab-a0af-b1f7c1fc18e4

Trump 2020 campaign adviser Lara Trump said the results from Tuesday’s New Hampshire primary should make the Democrats very nervous ahead of their November showdown with President Trump.

Ms. Trump told “Hannity” that former Vice President Joe Biden’s bid has taken a massive hit as he has now failed to reach the top three in both New Hampshire and Iowa.

Meanwhile, the campaign of Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., goes from strength to strength, drawing massive crowds and recording top-two finishes in the early-state contests.

She noted Sanders is a “self-declared socialist” and that fact alone frightens the party establishment who are looking for a candidate with more crossover appeal.

“This is who was at the top of the Democratic Party right now. And I think it is probably making the establishment folks in the Democratic Party very, very nervous,” she added.

“They know the only energy behind Bernie Sanders is on the very, very far radical end of their base there.”

Trump said Sanders’ campaign is a hard “sell” to moderates who do not want radical change to the American system — and contrasted that with the GOP unity around her father-in-law.

She went on to cite figures from the president’s Monday rally in the Granite State, for which 52,000 people RSVP’d. She said one-quarter of those people were registered Democrats and just about one-sixth did not vote in 2016.

“So, I think the Democrats are probably getting really nervous seeing these results come in,” she told host Sean Hannity. “I think the Democrats are probably very, very worried about the base of their party and their future going forward. I sure would be.”

Warren campaign memo outlines path to victory in Dems’ ‘fractured’ nominating process

Westlake Legal Group AP20043055575220 Warren campaign memo outlines path to victory in Dems' 'fractured' nominating process Vandana Rambaran fox-news/politics/elections/democrats fox-news/politics/elections fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/politics fox-news/person/elizabeth-warren fox news fnc/politics fnc bf2e4474-36ed-5200-ac4d-3497e4c71d87 article

Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., sought to reassure voters that she’s focused on her future as the potential Democratic nominee for the 2020 presidential election, even as pollsters predict her odds of making it to a faceoff with President Trump will be severely limited if she can’t come out on top in New Hampshire on Tuesday night.

Warren’s campaign manager, Roger Lau, sought to weaken the candidacy of even the top party contenders, including Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and former Vice President Joe Biden, in a memo ahead of the first in the nation primary.

The memo criticized Sanders for starting with “a ceiling that’s significantly lower than the support he had four years ago,”  and pointed out Biden’s low polling numbers in recent weeks, especially with his lackluster performance in Iowa.

WHY NEW HAMPSHIRE MAY BE THE LAST STOP FOR ELIZABETH WARREN’S CAMPAIGN: POLLSTERS BREAK IT DOWN

Lau also aimed at former South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg, D-Ind., who came out of Iowa a top contender, but who Warren’s camp says has been unappealing to African American voters.

“If the early states deliver mixed results for the field, and no seismic event shakes up the top three, the remaining viable candidates for the Democratic nomination as of Super Tuesday will be Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren,” the memo predicts, ousting Buttigieg who performed surprisingly well in the first caucus of the season.

“Despite being in the race for a year and effectively tied for second in Iowa, Pete Buttigieg fails to break the 15 percent threshold in any of the Super Tuesday states and is in danger of getting locked out of critical statewide delegates entirely,” Lau wrote.

Warren’s campaign focused significant funds on securing wins in both Iowa and New Hampshire but came in third in the Iowa caucuses. She has admitted that financial struggles have caused her campaign to scale back advertising spending in South Carolina and Nevada, which each have contests later this month, but she has refused to take money from big donors.

Despite this, her campaign says that “internal projections” show her coming out at about the 15 percent threshold in 108 of the 150 congressional districts at stake before Super Tuesday, seizing two-thirds of the map.

“Warren is poised to finish in the top two in over half of Super Tuesday states (eight of 14), in the top three in all of them, and is on pace to pick up at-large statewide delegates in all but one,” the memo said, citing the campaign’s internal projections.
