dip his hands into a lobster tank at Fred Daleys fish store in Exeter Ill wait for the final he said Polls show him a distant third to McCain and Bush bump ing up against Keyes Forbes the multimillionaire candidate who had talked about finishing first or second here told reporters they were more likely to find a rubber chicken in Freds fish market than to witness him dropping out of the race The key to both contests could be independents who can vote in either primary Though a majority of New Hampshire independents are actually partyline voters a small portion of the states elec torate can swing either way and are being courted by both Bradley and McCain That could account for the differences in overnight polls particularly for the GOP race in which surveys show every thing from a McCain lead to an edge for Bush Polls that include a large sample of independents tend to favor McCain with Bush doing better when fewer independents are fac tored in It may come down to people like Debbie Pickering an independent who normally votes Democratic but is with McCain this time I dont trust either one of she said of the Democratic pairing Julie Simons caught McCains act Friday and attended Bradleys town hall Monday in Hollis I think Ive made up my she said Bradley just comes across loud and clear I like his Not by accident McCain and Bradley sounded similar themes in their last full day of campaigning The Democrat said a vote for him would send a message to this country that the old ways are over and the new politics have The Republican wrapping up a fiverally day with confetti swirling in the frigid night air said in Bedford that a vote for hint would send a message from New Hampshire to America and tlu world that were going to give the government back to the Bush supporters said he would do better than polls suggest because Republicans are motv likely than independents to u Tuesday Now that it comes down lo turnout I think we probably c the easier said Massachusetts Gov Paul Cellucci campaigning for Bush in the stale that borders his own McCain has a bigger challenge because inde pendents have to decide belvveut McCain and The Bush campaign mailed pieces of literature in the runup to the primary and plaeed it least one telephone call to households identified as support ers Agricultural commissioner examines drought damage SAN ANGELO AP Rancher
