NH Shift Brings New Dynamic to GOP Contest

Sunday, 01 Jan 2012 01:41 PM

 

MERRIMACK, N.H. — The political world will shift 1,300 miles to the east after the Iowa caucuses wrap up Tuesday.

The end of the caucuses means the beginning of a very different contest in New Hampshire.

The conservative activists who dominate the Iowa caucuses will give way to a New Hampshire electorate that includes tea partyers, moderates, and left-leaning independents alike. That means who you see and what they say on the campaign trail will likely change.

Abortion will give way to taxes. Ethanol will be consumed by budget deficits. There's also the curse of the front-runner to consider.

Regardless of the outcome in Iowa, New Hampshire voters delight in upsetting the conventional wisdom.

An Iowa Republican caucus winner has never won a New Hampshire primary in the modern era.
