Weekly N.H. News Roundup: February 22, 2019

Feb 22, 2019

With at least seven Democratic presidential candidates - and one Republican - showing up in New Hampshire recently, it's hard to tell the 2020 primary is a year away. Political observers are remarking on the number of candidate visits to the state as well as the crowds in N.H. at candidate events and are wondering how long the early energy can last. How many house parties or town halls have you attended so far?  We take the entire hour to look at the field and get a sense of emerging themes.

GUESTS:

  • Dan Barrick -  NHPR News Director
  • Asma Khalid - NPR Political Reporter.  
  • Annie Ropeik - NHPR Energy and Environment reporter.

Here is NHPR's reporting on the many 2020 presidential candidates in the state recently.

The latest poll by the Saint Anselm College Survey Center at the New Hampshire Institute of Politics  just released a poll on N.H. Voter Attitudes on the Presidential Primary.
