Democrats make last pitch to New Hampshire voters before primaries

After the Iowa caucuses debacle last week, Democratic presidential candidates are even more determined to score a victory without any hitch in the New Hampshire primary on Tuesday.

And the pressure of the race was on full display on Friday night, during the Democratic debate held in Manchester.

Dennis Santiago is an independent voter who has lived in New Hampshire with his family for many years.

He said he is leaning more towards voting for former South Bend Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg, and is also considering businessman Andrew Tang.

“A lot of it is because of a more generational thing.  I think Biden is the old Obama person and Obama was a great President. I think Biden will do well.  But I think that the Democrats have to present more of a forward thinking rather than looking back approach towards things.”

But his 23-year -old daughter Genevieve has a different opinion.  She likes Senators Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren’s platforms but she is planning to vote for former vice president Joe Biden.  

“For me, I just want a candidate who can beat Trump in general. But, I like Biden because he has experience before, he has experience in the White House as Vice President before so I think he has what it takes to understand the types of struggles that he’s gonna have to face compared to the other candidates.”

According to a Final 7 news Emerson college tracking poll, Sanders is leading in the New Hampshire primary with 30 percent, followed by Buttigieg with 23 percent.  Biden is in a close race for third place against Warren and Senator Amy Klobuchar.

“It’s important to vote because there are so many, so every single vote now counts towards the candidate that you’d like to have. Perhaps this year, for Democrats, the primary is more important. The Republican side if they want to go with Trump, it’s not as important because he’s pretty much the candidate.”

While the Democratic presidential hopefuls continue to make their case to voters across New Hampshire, President Trump is hosting a campaign rally Monday night in Manchester.

    TRUMP campaign rally in New Hampshire overflowed the Stadium capacity of 10,000. Voters on Camping tents slept one day in advance just to get in. Marshalls fined the organizer for allowing 12,000 into the Stadium. 3-4,000 stayed outside and watch on the big TV screen. The Democrat rally/caucus in NH produces 1,500 attendees. Trump lost to Hillary Clinton during the 2016 election at New Hamshire. DEMOCRAT in panic, a Communist Socialist Bernie SANDERS is leading, BIDEN the Dems establishment candidate is way down below. The GOP Senate during the Impeachment exempts HUNTER BIDEN for investigation, in order to give more chance for BIDEN. But Bloomberg money for the Dems media are spreading the corruption on Biden family. What will happen if SANDERS end up as the winner, will Hillary Clinton, the Super Delegates from DNC will disqualify him. The same story as 2016 election, Are we expecting Clinton for President or Bloomberg for President…
