As supporters and critics made noise outside of a Manchester polling station, Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio made the rounds by greeting voters. Rough Cut (no reporter narration).
ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio greets voters at Manchester's Webster School as ballots are cast inside on Tuesday (February 9). A week ago, it looked like the stars were aligning for Marco Rubio. Now, as New Hampshire holds its pivotal primary, the Republican presidential contender has to hope the sky does not come crashing down on him. After a surprisingly strong third-place showing in last week's Iowa caucuses, Rubio came into New Hampshire hoping for a top-tier finish in the state to buttress his argument he is the candidate around whom the party establishment should rally. But a debate performance on Saturday night that was widely mocked by Republicans and Democrats as well as legions on social media might have changed the equation for the U.S. senator from Florida. However one Rubio supporter in Manchester told him, while in the midst of taking a picture, that he did a "great job on the debate."
