Voters in New Hampshire go to the polls today in the first-in-the-nation-primary, and the big question on everyone’s minds is who will be the winners.
On the Republican side, polls are projecting Arizona Sen. John McCain as the likely GOP winner, with former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney expected to finish second and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, the winner of last week’s Iowa GOP caucus, coming in a distant third.
Polls late last week had Democrats Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton in a virtual dead heat, but polling over the weekend now suggests that Obama is surging ahead, no doubt enjoying a “bounce” from his win last week in Iowa. Former North Carolina Sen. John Edwards is projected to finish third in New Hampshire.
