Donald Trump is coming off of a tight race in Iowa with Republican rivals Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz. After losing to Cruz, has Trump's New Hampshire ground game gotten stronger?
Voters weighed in as Trump held rallies both in Portsmouth and Exeter, two of five events he scheduled for Thursday.
“This is really crunch time,” he said as he took the podium at Exeter Town Hall.
Just days before the primary in New Hampshire, Trump added a slew of events to his campaign schedule.
“You’re going to play such a big role,” Trump told the crowd.
After coming off a not so impressive performance in Iowa, many said he got lazy.
“I was very disappointed after what happened in Iowa, and I think he hurt himself by not doing the debate,” said Katherine Baker of Portsmouth.
Baker said she’s still a diehard Trump fan.
First time voter and student, Vincent Vaughns, was first in line (at 7 a.m.) when he told NH1 News that he had begged professors at Philips Exeter Academy to let him skip school to hear Trump speak.
“(I wanted to) see word for word, not hearsay but from their mouth, what they are going to do for our country,” said Vaughns of the rally close to campus.
Trump ended the Exeter rally by taking questions from the audience. Topics ranged from building our military, education and saving social security, ending with quite possibly the most important message of them all.
“February 9th… go and vote… thank you,” said Trump before walking off the stage.
Trump will be back in New Hampshire on February 6th for the Republican debate at St. Amselm College in Manchester.
