DEM NH Primary Result: Obama 82%, Firepups 18%
Since the topic tonight is the NH Primary and not just the NH Republican Primary, we should mention that Obama got 36,000 votes or 82% of the Democratic vote based on 78% of the vote in at 11 pm.
So the size of the Firedog crowd in the Democratic Party has been determined as 18%.
Of course Obama was running against some tough opposition
