Getting Dirty? New Hampshire Presidential Primary
Likely primary voters expect the worst is yet to come: Although many voters likely to vote in New Hampshire’s Democratic or Republican Primaries still think the candidates are discussing the issues, most voters think the campaigns will get more negative as primary day approaches. 61% of both likely Democratic primary voters and likely Republican primary voters think the candidates are mostly focused on the issues. However, 70% of likely Democratic primary voters and 66% of likely Republican primary voters think the tone of the campaign will get worse as primary day gets closer.
