(Studio) Report on New Hampshire president primary.
REPORTER: Walter Cronkite

(New Hampshire) President candidates shown campaigning with New Hampshire voters. Highlights of past campaigns noted. [Senator George McGOVERN - bets 2-1 he carries factory in votes.] Senator Edmund Muskie won in New Hampshire, but really lost because McGovern supporters said if he didn't win by 55%, he'd lost. Lyndon B. Johnson beat Senator Eugene McCarthy in New Hampshire in 1968, but no one saw it that way. Early polls don't mean much. Event entirely unexpected, like Muskie crying, can change whole campaign. Primaries not logical or orderly but are surprising. Reporters found of them.
