Voters in New Hampshire prepare to become the first in the nation to hold primaries in the Presidential race with some residents anxious for the fanfare to end. Deborah Lutterbeck reports.
Election season in New Hampshire. The signs are out and the clock is ticking ahead of the February 9th primary. At this Manchester diner, some voters are still weighing their options -- like Dave Buxton who has ruled-out front-runner Donald Trump -- but has not yet decided who he will support. (SOUNDBITE) (English) DAVE BUXTON, NEW HAMPSHIRE VOTER, SAYING, WITH REGARD TO DONALD TRUMP: "Well, he is an entertainer, so, and I think that's what we've heard is a lot of entertainment. So I think everybody would like to hear some actual plans and something firm, but something other than entertainment." Joe Martin is voting for Senator Bernie Sanders -- who has a significant lead over rival Hillary Clinton. (SOUNDBITE) (English) JOE MARTIN, NEW HAMPSHIRE VOTER, SAYING, WITH REGARD TO BERNIE SANDERS: "Just, he cares about the people. He's willing to do what it takes to fix the economy and make it right." With New Hampshire holding the first primary in the nation -- some people like Kitty Kidder have already had enough. (SOUNDBITE) (English) KITTY KIDDER, NEW HAMPSHIRE VOTER, SAYING: "I will just be really glad when the primary is over. I am up to here with the ads on TV, and just you can't get away from it, and it's the same ads over and over and over, you know? Show me something different." New Hampshire has been a turning point for candidates in the past -- but it is still up in the air what the so-called Granite State will serve up this time around.
