What's in Store for the New Hampshire GOP Primary?

In Iowa, Mitt Romney just squeaked by, winning the state's caucus with an eight vote margin over former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum's late in the game surge from behind. But New Hampshire is a different ballgame. Romney, former Governor of neighboring Massachusetts has had a near hometown advantage in the Granite State. He has been leading in the polls for weeks and is not letting up heading into tomorrow's primary vote. 

But being in the lead also means that you are the main target for everyone behind you, as was evident in the two nationally televised debates this weekend. Anna Sale, reporter for WNYC's politics website It's A Free Country, has more on what to expect in New Hampshire.

For every minute you talk about the majority INDEPENDENTS in America you have spent 1000 minutes talking about the MINORITY democrat/republican party hacks (mostly Repubs. because of their silly primaries).

When ru going to give INDEPENDENT CANDIDATES 40% of the airtime?

NPR is our last hope of free press in America and braking the stranglehold the Demo/Repubs have on us all. You must step up before its too late. This is probably the last Pres. election in America before we loose everything to enemies foreign powers who control our debt, our markets, and our press.

Revolt! Save America before its too late!
