CLAREMONT, N.H. -- Democratic presidential candidate Bill Richardson, who appears permanently in fourth place in polls in New Hampshire, made his pitch here to a room of seniors by reminding them that historically New Hampshire voters "like underdogs" like him.
"You like upsets, you like underdogs," Richardson said.
He spoke and took questions for an hour at a podium propped up by a deck of cards and a microphone that petered out at the end.
But for the most part the crowd of 60 people was attentive and applauded often as he addressed immigration, healthcare policy, and the economy.
A recent Concord Monitor poll released Friday morning showed Richardson with 8 percent support behind Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and John Edwards.
