Obama to face a more right-leaning N.H.
Local party blames presence of GOP hopefuls for shift
When President Obama arrives in New Hampshire today to tout his $447 billion job-creation bill, he will confront a vastly different political landscape than the one he faced in 2008 when 54 percent of Granite State voters helped send him to the White House. The electorate has swung wildly to the right since then, and Obama is trailing Mitt Romney by 10 percentage points in the state. The president is scheduled to speak at Manchester Central High School today.
