Dixville Notch went for Kasich over Trump, 3-2, and for Sanders over Clinton, 4-0.
(Kasich had personally telephoned each Dixville voter to ask for their support.)
Well, I guess he convinced three of them!
In Millsfield, voters backed Cruz over Trump, 9-3, scattering individual votes among
Marco Rubio, John Kasich, Jeb Bush, Chris Christie, Carly Fiorina, and Rand Paua.
In Hart’s Location, voters backed Sanders over Clinton, 12-7,
with two votes for Mark Stewart Greenstein, a candidate who wants to inject “liberty” into the party.
Among Republicans, Kasich picked up five; Trump, four; Christie, two; and Bush, Carson, and Rubio one apiece.
In all, Sanders now leads Clinton 16-7, and Kasich, Cruz, and Trump are tied at 9 apiece.

Dixville Notch, in particular, gets significant attention for such a small community
(its population is 12 people now) in picking the eventual Democratic and Republican primary winners.
In 2008, then-Sen. Barack Obama won the majority of Dixville Notch voters (claiming seven)
to John Edwards' two and Bill Richardson's one.
That same year, Sen. John McCain won the Republican community with four votes,
while Mitt Romney got two and Rudy Giuliani got one.
In 2012, Obama handily won the Democratic vote,
but Republican voters split between Romney and former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman,
each of whom got two votes. Newt Gingrich garnered one.
