We know that Democrats hate Donald Trump. How do we know? Because Democratic commentators keep telling us so. As recently as yesterday, Juan Williams, co-host of Fox News Channel’s “The Five,” reminded viewers that half the country wants to see Trump out of office. Never mind that all the polls reflecting that preference predate the up-and-down impeachment vote and are three weeks old.
So who do Democratic love? Perhaps the best place to test that question is New Hamphire, which votes today in its all-important primary. The Granite State is, in a real sense, a microcosm of the national mood among Democrats. Voters in the state have collectively supported the Democratic candidate in every presidential election since Bill Clinton ran for his first term in 1992.
Back to the title question and some answers. New Hampshire voters should love Elizabeth Warren. She represents a neighboring New England state. Plus, she’s a woman. So how is the senator being received by New Hampshirites? See for yourself. Here she is glad-handing on a bus. Pay close attention to the woman in the foreground, at the lower right of the video.
“Is that Elizabeth Warren?”

And here Warren is at a diner whose patrons are evidently too hungry to stop eating and acknowledge her presence.

Let’s move on to another candidate for which there is visual data. You might guess from his weak showing in the New Hampshire polls — as of this morning he is running fifth behind Amy Klobuchar — that former Vice Pres. Joe Biden is not well loved. Clearly he is. Watch as group of Gen Zers serenade the presidential hopeful.

The septuagenarian seems to appreciate the effort, though maybe he would have appreciated it more if the group had sung a tune that he was more familiar with, like “Daisy Bell.”
