The Granite State is taking center stage as voters decide who they want to represent the Grand Old Party in the upcoming election. It’s down to the wire between the one and only Donald J. Trump and former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley. It’s like the heavyweight championship of politics, except instead of punches, they’re throwing campaign slogans and policy proposals at each other.

Trump is coming into this primary with a whole lot of momentum. I mean, the guy practically has his own gravitational pull at this point. According to the latest polls, he’s all but guaranteed to secure the GOP nomination. But hey, miracles can happen, right? Maybe Haley will whip out some secret weapon or perform a political Hail Mary that could somehow swing the tide in her favor.
And on the other side of the aisle, we’ve got the Democrats doing their thing. Now, you might be wondering why they’re even bothering with a primary when they’ve already got good ol’ Joe Biden as their guy. Well, turns out Biden decided he was too cool for school and didn’t bother registering in New Hampshire. Yeah, that’s right, he’s opting for the write-in method. How’s that for enthusiasm, huh? Meanwhile, we’ve got this guy Dean Phillips from Minnesota, who’s apparently been running around like a chicken with its head cut off, trying to convince New Hampshirites to write in Biden’s name. Good
Can’t forget about Marianne Williamson. Yes, you heard that right, the self-help guru is actually on the ballot. I mean, why not, right? If we’re gonna have a primary, might as well throw in some wild cards to keep things interesting. And trust me, Marianne definitely knows how to bring the wild to the party.
