Belatedly I look at some of the results from the New Hampshire Recount. While the data is available on the Secretary of State’s web page I don’t know as anybody has added up the numbers and published them.
The Democratic recount ran out of money, so we don’t have a 100% count. But the Republican recount (financed by the Ron Paul campaign) chugged on to the end.
The complete results don’t just show the major Republican candidates: they show everyone. Including the Democrats who got write-ins on the Republican ballots. I’m going to presume, here, that Independents who wanted to vote for a Democrat would have picked up a Democratic ballot, so these votes for Democrats are coming from registered Republicans.
In the following list Democrats are in boldface. “Others” is the group list of folks who hadn’t registered as running for president (e.g. Mickey Mouse).
All of the Democrats on this list were write ins on Republican ballots.
So what does that mean? Not a lot. But in this snapshot it does show that in January 2008, in New Hampshire, Obama had a slight edge on Clinton among registered Republicans. McCain thinks New Hampshire is in play? Nope. Not a chance. And Senator Sununu is toast too.
