New Hampshire Results Show Voters More Divided Than Ever, But More Involved

Long lines formed at polling places after the 7 p.m. closing time for voting. Minutes earlier, supporters of Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump were still in the streets, hunting for last-minute votes in what would turn out to be huge victories for both men. State officials had predicted a record turnout. And while the numbers were not quite final, it seemed clear they were right. The message from New Hampshire is loud and clear and twofold. One: The American people are more ideologically divided by political party than they have been in a generation. Two: Voters are deeply, passionately involved in the campaign, and are likely to remain so throughout 2016. The bottom line: The U.S. is looking at an election of vivid contrasts with an intensity not experienced in decades, arguably since the Vietnam era in 1968.
