FYI saw McCain in Manchester and he was so much better than in states he is less comfortable with. That said, low turnout, feeling of depression among Republicans about his prospects and GOP Sen. John Sununu's.
Ended speech on a high note with the "Fight, fight, fight for what we believe in" shout by McCain. Likely it will not go his way even in the state that knows him best.
btw he is not, as ABC reports, pulling out of NH. He is just pulling some cash out of a state he is already up in, and knows he can't buy it anyway.
If he wants to seal the deal in NH, he'd have to camp out here like he did in the primaries in 2000 and 2008, something he can't do in a General Election. And if he can't win NH, what other battleground states can he realistically do it in?
