Well with just three days to go before the first in the nation primary Republican rivals are looking to -- front runner Mitt Romney all.
His game and out of the top spot in the New Hampshire polls tonight they're gonna get their chance the first of back to back debates is just hours away.
Hello everybody I'm Uma Pemmaraju in Washington.
We have live fox team coverage Carl Cameron Steve Brown -- -- line.
Are on the ground in New Hampshire let's get right -- with campaign Carl Cameron who isn't Amherst Carl.
-- -- you -- the two debates are obviously very important so people are gonna wanna see those before they make up their minds.
And historically in New Hampshire the undecided vote is always huge and when you add into that.
The fact that the Madrid the biggest bloc of voters are independents in New Hampshire 40% compared to thirty for Republicans and 29 for Democrats.
It could hardly be more volatile and Mitt Romney the front runner knows that yes he's got a double digit lead in some polls even in the twenties.
But the fact of the matter is he's been under pretty intense attack -- its mounting.
And he recognizes that -- -- volatility because of the uncertainty of the debate and the undecideds and independents.
He can't take anything for granted and this is really an expression of the attacks that he's facing listen to Mitt Romney earlier today as he's warning folks.
It ain't over till it's over.
Let me tell -- -- don't get too confident what those poll numbers.
-- I've watched polls common goal things change very quickly it's very fluid.
I need to make sure you guys get your friends to go out and vote you vote as well.
And of course the question really is of the conservative alternative to rise out of New Hampshire are likely to be possibly gonna be Rick Santorum.
He was only eight short eight votes short of the caucus win in Iowa earlier this week so he comes in here with a head of steam.
And some of the polls suggest that he may not be multiplying as fast as some -- hoped but he certainly get a huge crowds and a strong response.
Santorum today made a direct reference to that round -- something he doesn't often do.
Specifically saying that -- Mitt Romney's business and job experience is great but America's not looking for a manager they're looking for a commander in chief listen.
We need someone is gonna go in there can provide that leadership.
To take on the big tough issues and I don't think we see any record.
That already vision and -- and what governor Romney is trying to promote himself -- He tries to reporters opposite guy that can win.
Period victories are not victories.
Two wild cards to watch your first Newt Gingrich Newt Gingrich has.
Changed his tune.
Rather than being relentlessly positive as he called it in the -- to the Iowa Caucuses he is now going straight out Mitt Romney and there's going to be some Gingrich scud missiles in the next few days.
He's put together a web page that's called not Romney he's working on an ad that will go after -- in South Carolina.
As a flip flop brought abortion mr.
Romney was pro choice in 2005.
And Newt Gingrich is that will say that he passed health care proposals in Massachusetts that had taxpayer funded abortion.
Very very tough stuff.
Gingrich is not and -- for a position to be particular threat in New Hampshire but he could do serious damage to mr.
And then the other untold the other unknown quantity here is Ron Paul this is a state with a real strong historic libertarian streak.
Ron Paul's got organization he's campaigned here party's been around the track before he ran in 2008 as did Romney.
Ron Paul could come in second here.
What that means for the Republican Party.
Perhaps not much because no not there's not a lot of expectation that Ron Paul can take it further but it we could see a Romney -- -- Ron Paul seconds and then Rick Santorum perhaps right on his heels.
Nobody is making up their mind -- they watch the debates and again the Indies in the undecideds always hold sway here in the yet look.
Okay let's say -- very -- ironic worth looking out.
-- those attacks against him including as you put it does Gingrich scud missiles all right Carl thank you very much.
