EP 5: The Weekend

EIn New Hampshire, presidential politics is kind of like a state sport…and just like football, it can get it a little rough. In just a few months, voters in New Hampshire will send some presidential candidates limping out of the Granite State and maybe lift others to future victories. But do New Hampshire voters value that privilege? Do they deserve it? Are they doing the hard work it takes to vet candidates for the rest of the country? Let’s hear from voters themselves.

EP 5: The Weekend

EP 4: The Identity Crisis

EFor decades, New Hampshire could stand its ground and knock down anybody that tried to steal its prized possession. We're gonna tell you about some of the people who just wouldn't bow down to New Hampshire, and how that ended up working for them...But how long can a state hold on? Battle lines are being redrawn, and these days the threats aren’t coming from the usual suspects. National politics, the media, technology, it’s all changing. And the N.H. primary can’t escape it.

EP 4: The Identity Crisis

EP 3: The Midnight Special

EEvery four years, a caravan of national news networks descends on a remote corner of New Hampshire to broadcast the first results from the first-in-the-nation primary. What appears on the TV screen usually looks like a slice of Small Town, USA. A picture-perfect image of participatory democracy and maybe (just maybe) a hint of where the election is heading. The wall-to-wall coverage of Dixville Notch by some major news outlets might lead you to believe that they started this midnight voting tradition, or that their vote is unique, or that it holds greater weight than of the other precincts in New Hampshire. But there’s more — a lot more — to the story. Want to make sure that NHPR continues creating projects like Stranglehold? Click here to donate. Thanks for your support.

EP 3: The Midnight Special

EP 2: The Dragon Egg

EJimmy Carter’s 1976 N.H. primary campaign gave New Hampshire one hell of a gift: the state’s best argument for why it deserves the privileged status of having the first-in-the-nation presidential primary. And it also gave a lot of politicos in this state their ticket to power.
