New Hampshire isn’t representative of the United States.  Like Bernie Sanders’ state of Vermont, it’s largely English, French, and Irish in reported ancestry. It has a much higher median household income, is better educated, and more white than the United States as a whole.  

It has 7.6% living in poverty, compared to 11.8% for the entire United States and 15.3 % for South Carolina.  

South Carolina has a median household income (half above-half below) of $51,015 vs $74,057 for New Hampshire vs $60,293 for the United States.  

South Carolina is 68.5% White; 27.1% African American and 1.8% Asian.  New Hampshire, on the other hand, is 93.2% White; 1.7% African American, and 3% Asian.  The United States is 76.5% White; 13.4% African American; 1.3% Native American, and 5.9% Asian.

In 1790, the first US Census indicated that the United States was 80.7% White and 19.3% Black (African American). The country was much smaller and American Indians either were not included or included under White or Black. Please note that Hispanic is a linguistic grouping and not a racial category.
