New Hampshire Primary Election Results – January 10, 2012

New Hampshire Presidential Election Voting History

New Hampshire, one of the original 13 colonies, entered the Union in June 1788, and has participated in all 56 presidential elections through 2008. Although surrounded by “blue” states, the independent nature of New Hampshire voters leads it to be considered a swing state in most election cycles. (It has, however, ultimately voted Democratic in four of the last five elections.) In 2008, Barack Obama won by about 9% over John McCain. New Hampshire has maintained its allocation of four electoral votes since 1884.

Winners and Losers of the New Hampshire Primary

New Hampshire, a small New England state with roughly the same population as the city of San Antonio, has been a momentum-setter in presidential elections for nearly a century.

While Iowa has held its caucus before New Hampshire’s primary every year since 1972, Iowa’s caucus results are non-binding and delegates are not officially awarded until June, making New Hampshire the first state to award delegates in each presidential nominating cycle.

Since its first-in-the-nation status became official more than 30 years ago, only two Republican presidential candidates have lost in New Hampshire and gone on to win the nomination.
