You’d never know it….
The media and therefore candidates spend little time of attention in the state….
Joe Biden leads there in the polling averages even though Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders are from the region…
And it’s a primary…..Not a caucus like Iowa….
Both states are small and do not represent the demographics of the Democratic voter base, but seek to extract influence (And revenue) over the Presidential campaigns every four years…
Donald Trump doesn’t have much of a primary worry anywhere next year….
New Hampshire is feeling underappreciated in the 2020 presidential cycle, partly because many of the biggest names are coming to the Granite State less frequently.
Former Vice President Joe Biden has made just 13 campaign appearances in the state between January and July of 2019, while President Trump held no campaign events in New Hampshire in that time frame — even though it is one of a handful of states he lost in 2016 where he might have a path to victory in 2020. Trump did make a campaign stop in the state in August.
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) is from the neighboring state of Vermont, but he has only held 17 campaign stops in New Hampshire in the first seven months of the year — a number that tracks with the visits he made to the state at the same time in the 2016 cycle. Sanders is one of the favorites to win the New Hampshire primary after his 2016 victory over Hillary Clinton.
Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), who is trailing Biden and Sanders in the race, only held 14 campaign events in New Hampshire from January through July, according to NBC Boston.
Overall, an analysis by The Hill shows that this cycle’s presidential candidates are actually visiting New Hampshire more frequently than 2016’s field of candidates….
