In Moderate N.H., Legislature Racing To The Right05:50


The conventional wisdom is that New Hampshire, in contrast to conservative Iowa, is home to moderate Republican primary voters. Polls there continue to favor Mitt Romney in next week's first-in-the-nation primary, but there are other indicators of the political zeitgeist.

For instance, New Hampshire state legislators in Concord are advancing some very hot-button conservative proposals this week, including a repeal of the state same-sex marriage law. Radio Boston's Adam Ragusea has been following developments in the Granite State and explains what, if anything, that says about the mood of New Hampshire voters.
