How New Hampshire will decide

There are two impulses guiding the New Hampshire voter:

  • “Throw all of them out.”

  • “I don’t trust Obama.”

Whichever one of these impulses wins on Election Day will decide the fate of the Granite State’s 4 electoral votes.

The election isn’t about John McCain. It’s about a disappointing incumbent versus a troubling newcomer.

Sarah Palin stirs passions for and against. Overall, she’s a plus factor.

I imagine it’s the same in other swing states across America.

To win, McCain and Palin have to fight hard and stay visible.

Maverick may yet come through.
