recent polling here in new hampshire and that's likely one of the reasons his competitors have been fiercely attacking him. but there has not been any reliable polling since saturday night because sunday was super bowl and day before the election usually widely believed to union reliable still rubio speaking outside voting locations today. said, he feeling confidents. >> i i am feeling great we have seen lot of energy lot of people coming into office light volunteer he last second. we feel great we leave here more dal the gas than we came in and we feel very positive about that. >> rubio communication director says the goal not necessarily to win tonight. but to come within the top tooer they said, rubio running a 50-state campaign they are also looking ahead to south carolina. now coming up next 30 minutes, i am going introduce you to man who felt so strongly about criticizing rubio he actually came out here today outside, the headquarters here in man chester wearing particularly unusual

because i am remember catch the votes tonight. 67 voters millville and heart location voted for john kasich on republican side and bernie sanders on the dem dem said nor excited about expected record voter turn than democratic bernie sanders. i had camp say the all lo chance win. let's head live to sanders headquarters in conquer where we find ted den yells tonight. hi, ted. >> good evening from the concorde high school gymnasium no hotels ballroom for bernie
place tonight. the doors to the public opened short time ago but going take a little while get everybody in because, everybody is being service. now this afternoon, sanders and his enter raj visited polling concorde. here in state capital where he thanked reporters, and talked supporters and thanked his folks up here very not senator has been leading by double digits margin for months in state. one poll released monday puts de santos ahead of clinton by 16 points in new hampshire another put in 26 points ahead. so the bar is set and set high. for this 74 year old new hampshire neighbor. >> made in washington today impacts every american. they impact the younger generation even more. because you are going to have to
the next 60, 70 god willing 80 years. >> if you believe the pundits, sanders will need to win by at least ten points here in new hampshire to carry the momentum that they believe he has in other parts of country where he is no the a popular not as well-known oh, he certainly a lot of expectations for him tonight snnt and his campaign actually been trying to downplay those expectations, a little built. because, new hampshire is state where sometimes the polls don't necessarily translate to what happens on primary night. we will not expect him probably until at least couple hours after the polls close. but this is where it is -- he picked concorde. his staff said. essentially they thought it would be good location because he was here couple weeks ago. talking with some high school students. this was would be good location. because they thought it would bring very energetic crowd.
from bernie sanders primary location tonight. i am ted daniels fox 25 news. former secretary of state hillary clinton narrowly won iowa she has been behind for weeks in new hampshire some he can sperpts are not con vinced she going to lot tonight. >> her headquarters may be watching results coming most closely tonight. clinton's camp based in southern new hampshire. we are there tonight and we will hour. during the entire race, clinton camp last said her experience both first lady and secretary of state why people should vote for her. >> i know that there are still so many -- [inaudible] you know i am going just keep doing what i have done my entire life. keep showing folks they can count on to me we will make real progress together. >> no matter outcome tonight clinton says she going to take

line of cars snaking outside building out vote trying cast their ballots the polls there closed at 7:00. we are hearing they are going let people who were in line cast their ballots. no word yet on just how long the state going to allow those folks to keep casting their ballots but huge voter turn out. and we are all anxiously awaiting 8:00 pm that's when polls will close and results will tart to coming in. >> joining us boston political historian and pros he is fess sore tom whalen. we are settling in. let's start off with that democratic race. is this one we should be keeping closet eye on tonight? bernie sanders hillary clinton and maybe not victory for clinton. in terms of how many you know if she leap frogs but more so, if tonight. >> it is all margins. keep under 10% know can declare that moral victory. but you know sanders, has roused a lot of you know enthusiasm particularly from younger voters and given the high turn out
tonight. >> let's talk about the high voter turn out. we just saw lines. we know they are extending voting for those people tonight. what does that tell you about this race? would will benefit from big turn out tonight. i think as said de santos. but probably too, trump. because trump has gaernerred equal amount enthusiasm on the republican side. but i think hitten victor here is no candidate at all. it might be the voter i.d. law. this was first in the nation. and a lot of people predicted this would keep people away from the polls. but it is seems to be just opposite. given today as a results. certainly it is. >> let's talk about you know like in iowa, moral victory getting back to that for a moment. you look hillary clinton she already thinking about grounds game she going to have put out down south she snows that's friendlier territory for her as well. and also jeb bush if he make some type of run here he trying to get down because then he gets his brother on board. particularly clinton this is her fire wall. south carolina. the south.
he have well with a la teen in african american there report south saying that bernie sanders going meet reverendal sharmton tomorrow for breakfast. so, you can see that there urgency is on de santos side to reach out to african american voters. >> let's go back to hillary clinton. she has the name. she has an an awful lot of money but she not doing as well as she thought she would be. or as well many people expected to be doing. we know having trouble younger voters primarily women voter what did she do wrong here. >> well i don't think she did anything wrong per se. but she kind of running a campaign that happened eight years ago. or even campaign from 1990s. and the same i thing well into 21st century right now. that particularly this new younger generation of voters coming up, they really don't care about what she doing in the pa they want to know what key do for the country really kind of repeated well, brought up old kinds democratic establishments talking points. sanders has not. and particularly younger voters
for example, lack of economic opportunities, and you know, really hit those buttons. she has not in she really needs to course correction here to right the ship. >> all right. let's turn to republican race now donald trump expected to win. but if if is not big victory. does that damage him as well. >> i think so. given how high expectations were. and, especially as you saw in iowa. i mean hess kinds semi meltdown over the past week. but i just don't get the sense that that will happen here. >> we know that he has been very outspoke object you know another vulgar term last night he does not vet what he says he says whatever is oh his minds somehow resonating with people i did hear today, that some experts questioning when people go voter box they will actually pull the trigger and vote for him, or do he this just like talk about him and say, you know they are on his team >> well, term you a thin it isty in the lot people appreciate

and i think nooem people thought this point. than he is. why do you think that he not doing better than many people thought? is it because of donald trump? >> well, that's part of it because, trump has very charismaic figure he didn't have much message this time around. i mean you expecting more from jeb so-call smarter brother. bush family. goods. you are joying talked last time and chatted. seems to about the clintons, maybe going back to the old days of doing thing as far as campaigning concerned. same thing can be true of the bush campaign here? right that's the problem with dynasties they go with what worked in past. but we have new century now and they just don't seem to get if. let's go to democratic side we are talking bernie sanders. he says that america needs political revolution we know his voters. in your opinion, what is drawing these young voters to say san? >> well fear that they are not going to have same kind of future that their parents had.
