    It's a relatively small state -- no one has greater than 55% name recognition?

    •  Well, it's "no opinion," (1+ / 0-)

      which could mean "I don't care"? It is interesting how high those numbers are.

        Among my favorite SNL skits ever -- the only game show by New Englanders, for New Englanders -- as Phil Hartman (Stanley) and Adam Sandler (Tony) go to work:

        Stanley Sperrow: Ok, from Boston (Bahston) Mass to Nashua New Hampshire. ...

        (Tony buzzes in)

        Stanley Sperrow: Tony.

        Tony Vallencourt: Boston to Nashua? You goin' up there to buy liquor pally?

        Stanley Sperrow: Aya, no sales tax.

        Tony Vallencourt: Alright, you just gotta shoot up 95, but watch your ass crossin' over the border. Those state troopers are outa control.

        Stanley Sperrow: That's correct Tony!

        Tony Vallencourt: Hey, I don't care if you're 1 mile over the speed limit, they're haulin' your ass into Muni Court.

        Stanley Sperrow: Ok, Tony.

        Tony Vallencourt: I'm tellin' ya pal, these guys got a quota and a WICKED radar (radah) gun.

      New Hampshire has no statewide steppingstones. No Lieutenant Governor, no elected Treasurer, no elected Attorney General. Vermont and Massachusetts all have those farm team (sorry!) positions. Here, when you run for Congress, Governor, or US Senator, you start out with low name recognition.

      Bass and Hodes are fairly well known in their own district (NH-02). Ayotte is fairly well known because the Union Leader promotes her - oh, but who knows whether she is really conservative?
