Tomorrow is the New Hampshire primary--the first state primary following last week's first caucus in Iowa. I have a feeling New Hampshire will follow suit—the forward momentum of the extremes of both parties pushing Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, Hillary Clinton, and Bernie Sanders to the top.
Interestingly most people I've talked with about this election cycle are not happy with any of the top candidates who have emerged. Only a very few are strongly backing one of the front-runners. Most are afraid for our country if the "angry white man" Trump becomes President and others are literally afraid of Ted Cruz's far-right leanings or just downright hate the man. Hillary has the best Presidential resume by far; however, her Benghazi baggage, her mishandling of State Department emails and server confusion, and being viewed as a liar are dragging her down. Then there is Bernie Sanders. Even my 17-year old son who is taking Economics this semester has learned enough to know that Bernie's ideas are not economically viable.
The extremes of both the Republican and Democratic parties have emerged and are skyrocketing high in the polls. However they will eventually plummet back to reality. The extremes are leaving an opening for the majority of Americans who aren't on polar opposites of each other to support other candidates.

Despite his stumbles in Saturday's Republican debate, Marco Rubio is that breath of fresh air with a message of positive change that this Presidential race needs. Check out his story, which really is the foundation of his entire campaign. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6nK60C4BqLo
