We’re just a day away from New Hampshire’s first-in-the-nation primary, where Donald Trump hopes to make up for his loss to Ted Cruz in last week’s Iowa caucuses and Hillary Clinton hopes her momentum from a narrow win in Iowa will continue into the Granite State, where the Senator from neighboring Vermont has a double digit lead in the polls.

The outcome of Tuesday’s primary will have a big impact on the candidates’ momentum as they turn their focus to South Carolina, whose primary follows New Hampshire’s.

Who has the most to gain from a win in New Hampshire? Who has the most to lose from a poor performance? What are the issues that matter most to New Hampshire voters?

Guests:

Frank Cohen, associate professor of political science at Franklin Pierce University in New Hampshire
