2020, the grandest show in NH

Every Presidential election cycle New Hampshire receives as much media attention as all other state contests combined. New Hampshire is the first state to vote in the Primary Election, and is a battleground for all candidates. Upset or weak showing by a front-runner in this state can change the calculus of national politics in a matter of hours. Candidates try to secure votes anyway they can. From holding Town Halls in basements, house parties in homes of whomever will host them, and speeches at Universities. The state becomes a temporary Political circus. 

Candidates who do poorly frequently drop out, while lesser-known, underfunded candidates who do well in New Hampshire suddenly become serious contenders, receiving large amounts of media attention and campaign funding. With Trump in office, there are 23 candidates(21 of them Democrats) trying for the 2020 election. This is the most candidates a Presidential election has ever seen. The mood of New Hampshire is one of desiring change. Change from the current President. But with so many candidates plowing through the state weekend after weekend how does one choose who to vote for? You can attend all the different events, eat the free food, hear the speeches, but it still becomes overwhelming to know who stands for what. Unless you have created a spreadsheet of some sort, or a way to keep score of this political game. Especially when every few weeks a new candidate is announced. A win in New Hampshire increases a candidate’s share of the final primary count in all states by 27 percentage points. While it is still early, this political season is one of boldness. Until the primary vote on Tuesday February 11, 2020 anything goes.
