As Iowa votes, New Hampshire appears to be tending narrowly toward McCain on the Republican side with Hillary holding a slight lead in the Democratic column. In Iowa for last minute barnstorming, McCain could get an added boost in New Hampshire if Fred Thompson, as expected, drops out of the race.

The polls this morning:

– A 7NEWS/Suffolk University poll released yesterday has McCain with 32 percent followed by Mitt Romney with 23 percent; Rudy Giuliani, 11; Mike Huckabee, 10; Ron Paul, 8; Fred Thompson, 2; and Duncan Hunter, 1, with 13 percent undecided.

– Another poll, this one from Franklin Pierce University/WBZ has McCain ahead of Romney with 37 points to Romney’s 31. But this poll has 28 percent of likely primary voters undecided.

– A CNN-WMUR poll out this morning shows McCain and Romney tied with Hillary 4 points up on Obama.

Dear Reader,

This feels like the most important fundraising drive since I've been CEO of Mother Jones, with staggeringly high stakes and so much uncertainty. In "News Is Just Like Waste Management," I try to unpack the reality we all face and how we can rise to the challenge. If you're able to, this is a critical moment to support Mother Jones’ nonprofit journalism: We need to raise $400,000 to help cover the vital reporting projects we have planned, and right now is no time to pull back.
