ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Residents in the tiny town of Dixville Notch in New Hampshire are allowed to cast their votes for the state's primary as the clock strikes midnight marking the arrival of Tuesday (February 9). They cast nine votes, five voting Republican and four Democrat. The votes where tallied up on the board and it showed Ohio governor John Kasich, receiving 3 votes while businessman Donald Trump received two. On the Democratic side, Bernie Sanders received all four votes. The rest of New Hampshire primary voters will cast their votes dayside on Tuesday (February 9). Sanders, a U.S. senator from Vermont, is locked in a tight race with former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for the Democratic presidential nomination for the November election, but polls showed a sizable lead in New Hampshire over Clinton. As the New Hampshire polls stand now, Trump would win...his rivals Cruz, Rubio, Kasich, Bush, and Christie would end right behind him in a tight bunch. Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson and businesswoman Carly Fiorina are also in the race.
