so still early in race but i think it will be a repeat of sanders vs clinton in 2016 with bernie taking the win but pete could catch up
As of late Tuesday afternoon, a total of 853 presidential campaign events have been held in New Hampshire, nearly 300 fewer than the number held in Iowa before the caucuses there last week. That said, for the most part, the number of events each candidate held in the Granite State doesn’t correspond with their standing in the state’s polls. The most events were held by businessman Andrew Yang (133) and Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (130), but they have gained little traction in the polls. On the other hand, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren have stronger name recognition in the region but have not visited the state in as high numbers. Sanders tops the New Hampshire polls while Warren has fluctuated throughout the campaign, at times leading but currently tied for third place with several candidates. Former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg and Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar — two Midwestern candidates who don’t hold the same name recognition in the area but have a chance at doing well tonight — have the most visits in the Granite State after Yang and Gabbard.

What do I think will happen?
Bernie will get screwed. Mayor Pete will win tonight. At the last minute either Hillary or Minnie Mike will save the Democratic Party, and Trump will win in November.

but you hit on a Key point if turn out does not approach 2008 obama levels the dems are off to a rough start against trump as they are really wanting to see turn out numbers rise as a sign they have a chance to defeat him in 2020 in November
WASHINGTON – As the Democratic presidential candidates begin a sprint to determine who will take on President Donald Trump this fall, party insiders are wrestling with another consequential uncertainty: whether voters are already tuning out. Lower-than-expected participation in the Feb. 3 Iowa caucuses and massive audiences at Trump's rallies that have eclipsed those of his rivals – including one on the eve of the New Hampshire primary – have undermined an early narrative that Democrats are so energized after losing in 2016 that they're ready to show up in droves in 2020. As the nation parses the results of the New Hampshire primary Tuesday for signs of who might emerge from the crowded field to be the Democratic nominee, party leaders will also scrutinize turnout figures to assess whether they're facing the same enthusiasm headwinds that worked against Hillary Clinton four years ago.
so Pete and sanders allready exchanging verbal barbs and Trump casualy throwing rallies on the eve of primaries to keep his base motivated and amped up , i know not much about NH but 12k at a rally seems pretty good for him in a traditionally blue state
Buttigieg, meanwhile, slammed Sen. Bernie Sanders, telling NBC in an interview that it "would be very difficult" for Sanders to beat the president in November. But as Democrats fired verbal shots at one another about electability, Trump – who does not face a serious threat for the GOP nomination this year – filled a nearly 12,000-seat arena in Manchester, N.H., for a rally Monday night. Free from the impeachment proceedings that cast a shadow over his presidency for months, Trump touted low U.S. unemployment to jubilant supporters and projected an image of Republican unity.
Andrew Yang Suspends His Campaign Andrew Yang, a tech entrepreneur who built his campaign around a signature policy proposal — universal basic income — has announced he’s ending his bid for the presidency.
and keep in mind biden is getting hammered in this so even with some "republican support" hes trailing the pack
MANCHESTER, N.H. — Embittered “Never Trump” Republicans tied to former Ohio Gov. John Kasich have secretly schemed to assist Joe Biden’s campaign — because they think he’s the only Democrat who can beat the president and help them get “revenge,” The Post has learned. Emails obtained by The Post show that two top staffers from Kasich’s failed, 2016 primary campaign and Ohio’s former GOP chairman, a Kasich ally, were among those involved in efforts to boost support for the former vice president in last week’s botched Iowa caucus and Tuesday’s New Hampshire primary.
Turnout in Concord surpassed the 2008 Democratic primary by 5 percent and the 2016 primary by 15 percent.

so parting shot at the dems and the obligatory dems must stop trump comments
Yang: “Trump Is Not The Cause Of All Our Problems” In a speech to New Hampshire supporters, businessman Andrew Yang formally announced his withdrawal from the presidential race. “I am not someone who wants to accept donations and support in a race that we will not win,” Yang said, “and so tonight I am announcing I am suspending my campaign for president.” Yang also said he plans to support whichever Democratic candidate becomes the nominee — while also offering, “a word of caution and guidance” to the larger Democratic field. “Donald Trump is not the cause of all of our problems, he is a symptom of a disease that has been building up in our communities for years,” Yang said. “We must cure the disease that got him elected and in order to do that we must address the real problems that affect our people and offer solutions to actually solve them.”
