Promptly at 8 p.m. ET, immediately after the last of the precincts in New Hampshire closed for voting for the state’s presidential primaries, Fox News immediately called the race for GOP presidential hopeful Donald Trump.
“Special Report” anchor Bret Baier, alongside “The Kelly File” host Megyn Kelly, made the announcement with only 4 percent of the returns in and declared Trump had “regained his front-runner status.”
Baier and Kelly’s panel consisting of network regulars Brit Hume, Kirsten Powers and Steve Hayes all weighed in on Trump’s victory.
“The federations of the fed-up appears to have carried the day in the Republican Party at least and may indeed do the same in the Democratic Party, which gives you an idea of the atmosphere of our nation’s political system because the voters that were Trump are voters that we have consistently seen in polling and this exit polling tonight are people who have had it with the standard politicians,” Hume said. “How far this will carry forward in the upcoming states is anybody’s guess. But that’s where we are and this establishes it as anything we’ve ever seen.”
