The New Hampshire primary took place on Tuesday and the results are in.
They are not good for Elizabeth Warren.
Bernie won, Buttigieg placed a close second, Amy Klobuchar surprised everyone with a third place win, and Warren placed fourth.
FOURTH. In her own backyard.
See the breakdown below:
Bernie Sanders had 26% of the Dem primary vote with 76% of precincts reporting. Pete Buttigieg was in second place with 24%, and Amy Klobuchar was in third with 20%.

This is probably the beginning of the end for her campaign.
The Washington Examiner reports:
Warren’s epic flop in New Hampshire leaves her no path to the Democratic nomination
Elizabeth Warren admitted defeat in New Hampshire Tuesday night. She claimed to be still plotting a path forward for her presidential campaign, but, at this point, it has nowhere left to go.
With results still coming in, MSNBC has projected that Warren will come out of the primary with zero delegates. At best, she’ll be in a distant fourth, well behind Bernie Sanders, Pete Buttigieg, and Amy Klobuchar. This was a disastrous night for Warren on top of an already lackluster showing in Iowa last week.
In New Hampshire, Warren was supposed to have a bit of a home-base advantage: She represents the neighboring state, and Boston’s media tend to dominate New Hampshire’s coverage. It also has a large population of well-off, educated liberals who tend to be her core base. Yet, she failed to seal the deal with many voters.
The problem for Warren is that her campaign relied on Iowa and New Hampshire to give her the political momentum necessary to win the Democratic nomination. Joe Biden also flopped in the first two primary states, but he has South Carolina to look to. Even if his chances of a comeback are fading, at least he can argue that his strategy hasn’t had a chance to play out again. Warren, on the other hand, is looking at a bleak campaign trail from here on out. She might have been able to win Nevada had she won New Hampshire. But, now, that’s remote, and there’s no reason to believe she can compete in South Carolina heading into Super Tuesday.
Even far left CNN called this an embarrassment for Warren. Watch:

If Warren can’t close the deal with New England voters, she has no chance in the midwest.
