On the Eve of the New Hampshire Primary Between Friday and yesterday, the Gallup Poll sampled likely voters in tomorrow's first primary . The poll , taken over the weekend, shows that New Hampshire has become a different political world since last week's Iowa caucuses . Despite months of intense and expensive campaigning, Hillary Clinton and Mitt Romney are in real trouble in the nation's first presidential primaries. Barack Obama is way ahead among Democrats; John McCain is the leading Republican. However, today, even as Obama was making his familiar appeal—not just to Democrats, but across party lines, Hillary Clinton said there's no way she's quitting the race, even if she bombs in New Hampshire. We hear what seems to be shaping the changes in public opinion and what they could mean for voting tomorrow and beyond.

The Trump agenda: where's the beef? President Trump says big things are happening. After celebrating a House bill on health care, he doesn’t yet have Senate agreement. With James Comey’s public testimony scheduled tomorrow, the President today tweeted his selection of a new FBI Director. Is the Chief Executive all style and no substance? Later, terror attacks in Iran and conflicting claims about who’s behind them.
