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.
Who's to blame for the opioid crisis? Some of the lawyers who took on Big Tobacco are now going after Big Pharma. It’s all about the deadly epidemic of opioid use. Are the drug companies to blame? What about the users? Later, on today’s Talking Point: making sense of Britain’s upset election.
Will the Senate write a healthcare bill in secret? While Democrats and Republicans argue White House relations with Russia, another question is being decided behind closed doors: who gets help buying health insurance and who doesn't? We hear how the pros and cons are being shrouded in secrecy.
Terrorism and tweets, hate speech and murder Just days before an election, Britain is coping with a rash of deadly terrorism, and Prime Minister Theresa May is on the defensive. And again today, President Trump has tweeted criticism of the Mayor of London. Later, a double murder in Portland, Oregon has revealed the ugly past of a supposedly “progressive” city. One immediate question: is “hate speech” protected by the First Amendment?
Trump's 'America First' goes missing abroad In the Middle East, President Trump is changing some policies of the Obama Administration—and reversing his own campaign attacks on Islam as a religion that "hates us." We hear about his visit to Saudi Arabia and what's at stake for the rest of his foreign excursion.
