The polls are open now in New Hampshire for the first Presidential primaries in the country. While it should be considered if it is the best democratic process to allow small states with unrepresentative demographics to have an outsized influence on the way a nation elects its Presidents, there is no doubt that the vote today in New Hampshire will have profound effects on who stays in the race and who eventually becomes President.
Will a bigoted reality show entertainer and billionaire come in first in a Presidential primary? Will a 74 year old Democratic Socialist top the wife of a President, a former U.S. Senator and Secretary of State?
Will Jeb! have to trade in his exclamation point for a period or will he survive to stutter and stumble into obscurity another day?
Will Kasich have his one moment in the sun before burning out?
Will Cruz steal ballot boxes and candy from babies?
Will Marco Rubio hit a wall that Christie forced him to pay for himself?
All of these questions and more will be answered…at least to a degree…tonight in the New Hampshire Primary!

Should be a fascinating night!
