Despite President Trump not having any serious primary challengers for the 2020 election, Republican voters are showing up in record numbers.

“Enthusiasm for @realDonaldTrump is through the roof!” Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale wrote on Twitter. “With approximately, 70% of precincts reporting, President Trump has surpassed the New Hampshire Primary vote total of every incumbent President running for re-election over the last four decades.”

With 86% of precincts reporting, President Trump has already received 118,774 votes in New Hampshire, more than double the 49,090 votes former President Obama earned in 2012.

President Trump is also set to beat the vote percentages of the last three incumbent presidents that won re-election. Trump is currently just under 86%, Obama received 82%, Bush received 80%, and Clinton received 84%.

On Twitter, President Trump commented on his success, writing “The Fake News Media is looking hard for the Big Democrat Story, but there is nothing too fabulous. Wouldn’t a big story be that I got more New Hampshire Primary Votes than any incumbent president, in either party, in the history of that Great State? Not an insignificant fact!”
