Looking to New Hampshire
So, to exaggerate a little, Obama cleaned up in Iowa. But what's that mean for the rest of the primary season? Is this a one-time only win? How does the New Hampshire race shape up?
Well, right now, Hillary's still showing about a five point lead in New Hampshire. It's too early to tell whether the reports of her demise in Iowa will cause those numbers to decline a little. But things are looking great for Obama heading into New Hampshire. There's an article in the Washington Post that sums up just why the state suits Barack so well, noting that "in virtually every demographic category where Obama found his greatest strength in Iowa, New Hampshire's electorate has at least as many or more of those voters..." This could be shaping up to be a huge one-two punch for Obama.
Don't forget that ABC is hosting two debates tomorrow, Saturday the fifth of January. Six Republican candidates will lead off at 7 p.m. Eastern. Four Democratic candidates will follow shortly after the conclusion of the GOP debate, at approximately 8:30 Eastern.
