By the end of today, Barack Obama’s supremacy in the race for the Democrat candidacy will either be confirmed, or the two-horse race will be back on. The polls for the New Hampshire primary are predicting the former. Obama is up to 11 points ahead.
Hillary Clinton still has her die-hard supporters, but the lady herself is beginning to look a little fragile, almost in tears at one political meeting as she appeared to plead for what she once thought was rightfully hers.
Heavyweight Republicans have waited for New Hampshire to make their mark. The elder statesman, John McCain, is the favourite in this primary, but not nationally.
For the moment that position is reserved for Rudy Giuliani who says he is not bothered that he is not top in New Hampshire, with so called “Super Tuesday” less than a month away, when more influential states make their choice.
Giuliani is not even tipped for second place in New Hampshire. Mitt Romney is likely to be runner-up again.
