    The independent, all-knowing New Hampshire voter and other election myths

    Every four years, politicians descend on New Hampshire to genuflect to the state’s legendary voters. They tell them how wise, how discerning, how independent, how engaged they are.

    New Hampshire voters could reshape the presidential race in Tuesday's primary

    New Hampshire voters could dramatically reshape the race for president on Tuesday, boosting insurgent candidates who have connected with a discontented electorate or providing a second wind to establishment figures struggling to build support.

    As the New Hampshire campaign comes to a close, a super PAC supporting Sen. Marco Rubio has changed its ad strategy to try to slap down a possible rally by his Florida rival, Jeb Bush.

    In New Hampshire, candidates tread through old towns and new political turf

    The New Hampshire presidential primary, into which millions of dollars and campaign hours have been dumped, will play Tuesday on different political turf than was trod by candidates in the past.

    Gloria Steinem and Madeleine Albright: You are not helping Hillary Clinton

    I have spent most of my adult life feeling grateful to Gloria Steinem, whose clear-headedness and apt prose helped turn me into the feminist I am today.
