ABSTRACT
This article offers a look at New Hampshire's retail politics tradition during the 1996 primaries. Presidential candidate Bob Dole has discovered another New Hampshire tradition, scaring front-runners. Two polls in one week have put Dole behind rival Steve Forbes in the state, though within the margin of error. Forbes as instigator and beneficiary of Dole's travails, has done what nobody had believed possible: to bring excitement to the race. According to New Hampshire polls, support for the flat tax is falling even if support for Forbes rises. Attacks on his inherited wealth appear to be resonating beyond the punditocracy. Forbes and Pat Buchanan are competing for some of the same disaffected voters, who might be called secular angry white males.
