Hillary Clinton enters New Hampshire to campaign this week as a "field of one" as no other opponents have stepped up as of yet to announce they would challenge her for a presidential bid, The Washington Post reported.

At least two other Democrats have signaled that they may make a run for president — former Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley and former Virginia Sen. Jim Webb.

But with Clinton the only Democrat to formally launch a campaign, she grabs the media spotlight amid a crowded GOP presidential slate that includes as many as 20 candidates, all speaking at events around New Hampshire, which holds the nation's first presidential primary.

Clinton is holding "low-key" events, the Post said, making a Monday stop at a family owned furniture and toy manufacturer, and a planned event for Tuesday at a community college.

And in spite of her easy and relaxed campaign start, already Clinton's star wattage has "galvanized" the press, The Washington Times reports.

A new YouGov poll found that 66 percent of Americans report they have heard "a lot" about Clinton's presidential bid, the Times said. By contrast, said the pollsters, 72 percent of Americans "heard something" about Sen. Marco Rubio's announcement while just 38 percent say they've "heard a lot."

Just 6 percent of voters said they'd heard nothing about Clinton's running for president, whereas those saying they knew nothing about the candidacies of Rubio, Sen. Ted Cruz and Sen. Rand Paul were, respectively, at 28 percent, 29 percent and 30 percent, the poll found.
