university field house where heller clinton is going to be holding her election night headquarters. the secret service is now doing a security sweep inside. that is why we are out here. new hampshire has always been good to the clintons. tonight still has the potential to keep that record on track. but she needs to lose to bernie sanders by less than 10 points to claims she' s leaving new hampshire without severe wounds. today, she made final pitches to voters in manchester. >> i know that there are still so many people who are tired of the political machine. i' m going to keep doing what i have been doing, show people they can count on me, and that we are going to make real progress together. >> ending on a positive note is important but a poor showing here tonight will mean that attack machine resumes

and like the secretary of state' s expectations will be met. over 70% turnout. probably good for trout, probably good for sanders. ed: granite stators voting. what is your read on the size of the turnout and the emphasis on voting today? >> i think tonight is a question of how much bernie sanders wins by, not a question of how much dust a question of if he wins. and finally, who comes out number two. bush, and casing are in a very tight five. we will find out what happens to marco rubio on the fallout of the debate performance the other night.
it will be interesting to see what told that takes. ed: let' s talk about number one. what does it mean for trump and for sanders as they walk out of here with victories tonight? is it just status quo? >> more than anything else, we will see whoever comes in number two, or close to that as an establishment republican, had to south carolina and the contents, and be ready. the others are going to have to make a big decision. trump scares the party. i think we are going to find very different politics in south carolina. that is a very different state the new hampshire. it is tough, mean, and competitive. i do not know donald trump hold up. >> if they do not get double digits, is that it got
