ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Republican presidential candidate and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie stopped by a polling site at Webster Elementary School in Manchester, New Hampshire Tuesday morning (February 9) to greet voters. "Second place finishes so far make presidents as we've seen with Bill Clinton, as we saw with Barack Obama. Second place finishes make presidents, so we'll see," said Christie. A WMUR-CNN poll released on Monday showed Trump leading in New Hampshire with the support of 31 percent of those planning to vote in the Republican primary. Rubio was in second place at 17 percent, followed by Ted Cruz, a U.S. senator from Texas, at 14 percent. Kasich, the Ohio governor, had 10 percent, Bush, a former Florida governor, was at 7 percent, and Christie at 4 percent, according to the poll conducted from Wednesday to Sunday, with a margin of error of plus or minus 5.2 percentage points.
