    despite the crush of state primaries in the last week of January, first week of February, the NH will still have an outsized impact because, from a regional point of view, any candidate who wins in NH will have far greater impact on its own region as opposed to some of the geographical larger western states who are rather isolated from their neighbors media-wise. The state that comes to mind here is Nevada.  The upshot, candidates are still pouring beaucoup bucks and spending beacoup time in NH.

      But I don't buy it.

      Take '84.  After Hart won NH, we (actually HE) won Washington two weeks later dispite having no organization and little to no advertising.

      But everything changes, and you might be right.  It is easier, for example, for the California Press to cover Nevada than NH.
