wounded. but tonight donald trump full of confidence. david? >> all right, tom llamas leading us off again. tom, thanks to you, many believe it is make or break for governor jeb bush tonight. spending more than any other candidate here in new hampshire, $30 million. and tonight abc's jonathan karl on the campaign trail, finding himself suddenly driving behind jeb bush's bus. and john had a few questions for the candidate counting on new hampshire to survive. >> we're driving through manchester, and of course run into the jeb bush bus. we're going to follow along, because i bet he is going to a polling station. >> jeb, jeb! >> reporter: and sure enough he was. >> hey, how you doing? >> reporter: bush wading through a sea of cameras to make one last pitch for votes. >> governor, what do you say to somebody who is still undecided right now? >> what have you been doing, man? look, what i say is that i've got a proven record of accomplishment, the most reform conservative record of anybody running. >> reporter: once the front-runner, he is now fighting
>> vote for jeb. >> oh, yes. >> reporter: even bringing his 90-year-old mother into campaign during a snowstorm. that prompted a withering personal attack from the man who has been his nemesis from the start. >> poor, for a jeb bush who brought out his mother because he needed the help? walk in the snow, mom. >> reporter: bush's superpac has tapped his brother for an ad, during the super bowl no less. >> experience and judgment count in the oval office. >> reporter: jeb bush bet the ranch on new hampshire, he and his superpac spending almost $30 million just on tv ads, more ten times as much as donald and now he is predicting a comeback. is great. i always liked that. i love the fact that the pundits may not have gotten this right. it makes me feel good. tonight. clearly there is a lot at stake for ben jewish tonight. his aides telling you no matter what happens in new hampshire, the campaign moves forward?
he says he is moving on. in fact, they have eight events scheduled over the next few days in south carolina, where they'll also be campaigning with former president george w. bush, his brother. and they have one big advantage still, they have more campaign cash than most of his rivals. >> all right, jon karl with us tonight. glad you ran into the bus. thank you. meantime, on the democratic side tonight, an uphill battle for hillary clinton who did well here eight years ago. new hampshire voters gave her new life after iowa. but this time a different story leading in, trailing bernie sanders by double-digits going into the primary. here in his own backyard. clinton has struggled to engage younger voters where sanders has excelled. here is what we're learning from the exit polls coming in right now. three in ten voters saying honesty and trustworthiness are the characteristics most important to them. nearly seven in ten democratic voters describe themselves as liberals. that's higher than in the past. and more saying that income inequality, the economy, and
abc's cecilia vega out with the sanders team and one-on-one with clinton tonight. >> reporter: hillary clinton's sprint to the finish line today started right here in manchester. >> what is your prediction for tonight? >> it's -- i just love the way new hampshire does this thing, focusing on the issues. and they keep coming back. [ cheering ] >> reporter: her supporters cheering outside polling stations. bernie sanders feeling like a rock star in his own backyard. the vermont senator swarmed by supporters when i caught up with him today. senator sanders, your prediction for tonight? >> there is a large voter turnout. we're going do just fine. >> reporter: now in the final hours, the race comes down to this. >> go out the door. >> hitting the streets. these clinton supporters planning to knock on 50 doors today alone. have you been able to change any
>> we took two people who were on the fence between bernie and hillary and got them over. >> reporter: but will it be enough? here in this state that has brought the clintons so much. in 1992 -- >> new hampshire tonight has made bill clinton the comeback kid. [ cheering ] >> reporter: and again in 2008. >> i listened to you. and in the process, i found my own voice. >> reporter: this year new challenges. today donald trump piling on when asked what comes to mind clinton. >> she went to your wedding? she did. in a certain way, evil. in a certain way, evil. >> whoa. >> reporter: but coming to clinton's defense, none other than her own rival's wife, jane sanders. we're not going to play that game. >> reporter: tonight a new question, can the clintons pull off a comeback once again? >> and cecilia vega joins us
clinton headquarters. and campaign sources telling you, cecilia, they're bracing for a tough night? >> oh, they sure are, david. unlike before the iowa caucuses, what is happening here tonight is not being billed as a victory party. they've been long bracing for an upset here. in fact, today clinton's team sent around a list of her endorsements for south carolina, a sign, david, they are already looking to move past this state. >> all right, cecilia vega on this campaign every step of the way, thank you. and a telling number tonight by one estimate, 44% of voters here in new hampshire saying they could still change their minds in the hours leading up to the primary. today i met some of those late deciders who told us which way they went and why. across new hampshire today, voters determined to have their voice heard. we take you inside bartlett elementary school in gofftown. voters including michael clark jr. a veteran, bringing his son and his mother. how important is this day? >> very important. >> reporter: he told us he voted
her experience. his mother says clinton hasn't forgotten the veteran. >> because we have a lot of vets that are coming home, going over and coming home. >> kind of forgot about after they come back. >> yeah, yeah, that's a very, very important thing. for all of them. not just my son. >> reporter: it was not clinton for jean-claude laroche, who never misses the new hampshire primary. how important is the new hampshire primary day? >> it's a must. >> reporter: he said trump, christie and rubio topped his list, and today he decided donald trump. and to the people who might say he uses colorful language from time to time? >> i'm the same way. [ laughter ] >> reporter: he got your vote today. this veteran came all the way from ohio to valle rally voters for governor kasich. he says they're seeing late momentum. you came all the way from ohio? >> we have a ohio brigade. >> reporter: and meredith hungerford, a junior in college,
your decision? >> bernie sanders. >> reporter: what about him? >> he is relatable and he know what's the people wants. and for me climate change. like he supports that. and he supports the middle class. i support hillary clinton too. so it was a difficult choice. i think i just like resonate with bernie a little bit more. >> reporter: how you doing? >> good. how you? >> reporter: primary day is here? >> primary day is here. >> reporter: and outside we met some long-time new hampshire voters who take pride in their role. >> do you love your role as first in the nation primary? >> of course. >> reporter: why is that? >> because we get to vote. >> we set the pace for the country. >> yeah, for the rest of the country. >> reporter: some of those late deciders and conflicted voters deciding between candidates at the last minute here. let's get right to george stephanopoulos, who will lead our coverage of the results tonight as they come in. george, first off the republicans. what are you watching for? >> number one, can donald trump close the deal? he has led in new hampshire for 200 straight days, most of the days in double-digits. we saw as tom llamas mentioned
performance didn't match his poll numbers. will that happen again or will he reverse that? if he reverses it, he is the strong front-runner again. and then secondly, do the results on the republican side force people out of the race or give them more incentive to stay in? and those governors, jeb bush, john kasich, chris christie, if they either go ahead of marco rubio or stay very close to him, they're going to stay in this race, no matter what. and that could be good news for donald trump if he's got this split field. >> and george, on the democratic side, bernie sanders way ahead in the polls leading up to the primary. so what does hillary clinton realistically need to do here? >> very hard to see her winning tonight. what they were hoping for coming into tonight pulling within double-digits. the other number to watch for, does she have a clear win over bernie sanders among the democratic voters in this primary? remember, four in ten of the voters are going to be independents. in the primaries going forward, most of the big contests, those are open only to democrats. if she has a clear lead among democrats, that's a sign of hope for her.
things, it is going to be a tough night for her and a real long fight ahead. >> all right. we'll be watching right along with you, george. thank you so much. i'll see you as the results come in. stay with abc news throughout the night. george stephanopoulos and our powerhouse team will stay live as the results come in. we're watching a major storm brewing. 18 states from georgia to maine a system from the midwest all the way to the east. it. new images tonight. a dangerous commute in harrisburg, pennsylvania. cars sliding off the road in dayton, ohio. let's get right to meteorologist rob marciano with the new track tonight. rob? >> good evening, david. a little fresh snow on the ground in new hampshire. was it enough to thwart the voting process? we have some winter advisories all the way down into the deep south. part of a large trough that is kind of sloppy, bringing snow squalls from the great lakes into central georgia. and we'll see some random accumulations from 1 to 4 inches over the next 12 to 24 hours including some of the bigger cities in philly and new york.
minus 16 in minneapolis. minus 7 in chicago. and it does get to the northeast. minus teens and minus 20s over the weekend. so if snow does fall, we'll stick around. >> brutal cold, thank you so much. still so much more ahead on "world news tonight." we have images cosming in of the cruise ship filled with americans trying to get back to the u.s., hit by hurricane winds. video of passengers rocked by monster waves and the outrage tonight the captain didn't avoid the storm. tonight how that captain is now responding. then the head-on disaster, the deadly train collision. how did two passenger trains end up on the same track? and one of america's best known athletes speaking out tonight about the zika virus. summer games? limiting where you can earn bonus cash back... then those places change every few months... please. quicksilver card from quicksilver earns you
