On the Eve of the New Hampshire Primary

Hosted by

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.
