While Democrats are duking it out, Trump is quietly breaking records

The results are in: Bernie won New Hampshire, with Buttigieg trailing closely behind.  Meanwhile, Klobuchar is tenaciously hanging on to third place, Warren and Biden are rapidly becoming has-beens, and Yang and Bennet are out.

As always, Trump's takes on the Democrat presidential candidates are amusing and extremely pointed:

Surprisingly, despite Trump running unopposed, the really interesting news is coming from the Trump campaign.  Brad Parscale, Trump's campaign manager and chief data-tracker, is tweeting out some truly amazing statistics.  First, they show that Trump is overperforming wildly in New Hampshire when compared to past incumbent presidents:

This surging enthusiasm shouldn't be a surprise to anyone who's been watching Trump's rock-concert rallies.  The crowds are, if anything, even more enthusiastic than they were in 2016.

On Monday, Trump and Pence held a rally in Manchester, New Hampshire at the SNHU Arena, which seats up to 11,770 for concerts (and, presumably, for political rallies).  Despite sub-freezing temperatures, some of his more fervent supporters camped out the night before to ensure that they got into the rally:

The rally itself, as has been the case with every Trump rally during this campaign season, was packed to the gills with wildly happy people:

You read that right: 52,559 people sought tickets, and, of that number, 25.4% were Democrats, and 17% were people who couldn't get up the enthusiasm to vote in 2016.  As a reminder, Trump lost New Hampshire in 2016 by only 2,736 votes.

Here's one other thing to keep in mind.  President Trump recently tweeted out that he suspects that his real job approval is 62%:

What do you bet Trump knows something the rest of us don't know?  Glenn Reynolds always warns against not getting cocky.  He's right, but one can certainly be intrigued.
