Mr. Duncan talked about the importance of the New Hampshire primary as an accurate predictor of who will win the presidential election. He said it is “the closest thing we’ve got to amniocentesis.” Since 1952, when New Hampshire’s primary was changed, and became the first primary in each election cycle, no candidate from either party has won the nomination without first winning in New Hampshire. Mr. Duncan’s book, Grass Roots: One Year in the Life of the New Hampshire Primary, details the lives of several campaign volunteers from the primary to Pres. Bush’s presidential victory. He said his approach is different from past analyses of the process because he has taken a “bottom up” look at the campaign. close
