Donald Trump won more votes in the 2020 New Hampshire presidential primary on Tuesday than any other incumbent president.
With 87% of the votes counted so far early Wednesday morning, Trump garnered 120,476 votes in the Granite State.
Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale tweeted passing the historic milestones as the New Hampshire primary election results came in throughout the night.
“With approximately 54% of precincts reporting, President Trump has already received more votes than Presidents Barack Obama (49,080), George W. Bush (52,962) and Ronald Reagan (65,033) in their respective re-election New Hampshire Primaries,” Parscale tweeted.
“Now with approximately 62% of precincts reporting, President Trump has surpassed the total votes for President Clinton (not Hillary) in the 1996 New Hampshire Primary.”
On a percentage basis, Trump won 85.5% of the New Hampshire primary vote with 87% of the precincts reporting so far.
Trump’s showing on a percentage basis is second only to Ronald Reagan’s 86.43% set in 1984.
“In NH primary tonight, @realDonaldTrump is very likely to beat the vote percentages of the last 3 incumbent presidents who WON re-election,” Parscale added.
1996 Bill Clinton 84%
2004 George W. Bush 80%
2012 Barack Obama 82%
Trump tweeted about his historic win in New Hampshire.
“The Fake News Media is looking hard for the Big Democrat Story, but there is nothing too fabulous. Wouldn’t a big story be that I got more New Hampshire Primary Votes than any incumbent president, in either party, in the history of that Great State? Not an insignificant fact!”
