Trump Campaign Manager Brad Parscale released staggering statistics on Tuesday night showing the massive level of support that President Donald Trump has in New Hampshire as Democrats simultaneously held their primary.

“The Democrat story in New Hampshire is the continued dominance of big government socialist policies and the success of their standard bearer, Bernie Sanders,” Parscale said in a statement. “No matter which Democrat eventually emerges from their months-long dumpster fire of a primary process, we know the contrast will be President Trump’s record of accomplishment and optimistic view of the future versus Democrats and their socialist, job-killing agenda.”

Parscale released the statistics in a series of tweets, writing early in the night, “With approximately 54% of precincts reporting, President Trump has already received more votes than Presidents Barack Obama (49,080), George W. Bush (52,962) and Ronald Reagan (65,033) in their respective re-election New Hampshire Primaries.”

Parscale noted about 20 minutes later: “Now with approximately 62% of precincts reporting, President Trump has surpassed the total votes for President Clinton (not Hillary) in the 1996 New Hampshire Primary.”

About 30 minutes later, Parscale tweeted, “Enthusiasm for @realDonaldTrump is through the roof! 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.”

Parscale continued, “In NH primary tonight, @realDonaldTrump is very likely to beat the vote percentages of the last 3 incumbent presidents who WON re-election. 1996 Bill Clinton 84% 2004 George W. Bush 80% 2012 Barack Obama 82% Trump right now is pushing 86%. This is historic strength!”

The Republican National Committee (RNC) said in a statement: “After their mess in Iowa last week and their struggle to coalesce behind one candidate in New Hampshire tonight, the Democrat Party remains in complete disarray. One thing that is clear: Bernie Sanders winning his second state in a row shows how Socialism is now the mainstream in today’s Democrat Party. Meanwhile, the Republican Party is unified and organized behind President Trump, and the nation is thriving like never before. In November, Americans will choose four more years of unprecedented, historic progress for our country under President Trump.”

Earlier on Tuesday, Parscale appeared on Fox News where he expressed optimism about Trump’s chances of winning in the state.

“Look I think New Hampshire is in much better place than 2016,” Parscale said.  “I feel very comfortable. It’s one of the first states that I talk about other than New Mexico as a state that we can add to the map to the 30 states we won last time.”

“I think what you see last night, 17% of the people that come to that, 50% was from New Hampshire that did not vote in 2016 for any candidate, showing up at a rally last night,” Parscale said. “Those numbers alone take us over the winning line.”

Parscale said that statistics show that 96.6% of those who show up for presidential rallies also turn out to vote, and those who donate at least $1 show up to vote at a 98.4% rate.

“Once you’re engaged, once you connect with us, we can talk to you, your odds skyrocket up to vote,” Parscale added.

Trump echoed Parscale’s sentiments in a tweet, 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!”
