>> harris: we begin tonight with the gop race for the presidential nomination. voters in new hampshire getting ready to head to the polls for the first in the nation primary. and we are getting a better idea tonight ahead of tuesday's contest just how many people are expected to cast their ballots. and we know all of the major candidates are in the granite state tonight. over the next 12 plus hours back-to-back debates. one this evening, another in the morning. analysts saying most of the candidates will focus on former massachusetts governor mitt romney in the debates who is currently leading in the polls by a pretty wide margin. the new hampshire secretary of state saying he expects to receive 250,000 ballots on tuesday. more than the 2008 presidential primary when voters cast 241,000 ballots. and democrats also holding a primary with 14 names on the democratic ticket including president barack obama. unlike some other states, in

new hampshire, undeclared voters can take part in either primary. campaign carl cameron live in manchester, new hampshire for us tonight. carl, it comes down to the undecided voters. they will no doubt be paying close attention to the debates tonight and tomorrow morning. what are they looking for? >> reporter: un esided and independent voters. what they are looking for is who can beat barack obama. in new hampshire, mitt romney has a big lead in the polls and getting larger crowds and they are beginning to see real enthusiasm from romney supporters. he had an event today earlier. it was by far and away the biggest energizing crowd he has brought to the campaign trail in recent weeks. but rick santorum, the former pennsylvania shore who came so close to beating mr. romney in iowa had a big surge in iowa -- in new hampshire the last couple of days.
7:04 pm
a big question about whether he has the organization and money. he had momentum coming into new hampshire but it might be subsiding a little bit. if santorum shows that he has exceeded expectations, really risen from far back in the polls in new hampshire and gotten himself up in contention in second place he could come out of new hampshire with big headlines much the same way he did in iowa even if he doesn't have the ability to beat romney here in new hampshire. >> harris: some of the fireworks between former house speaker newt gingrich and mitt romney. what is the former speaker's strategy tonight for the debate? >> he spent the last several days in new hampshire going very hard against mitt romney. this afternoone turned it around a little bit and suggested he was going to go back to his relentlessly positive strategy in the preiowa caucus cam pin. here is what he had to say. >> i'm not going to go after mitt romney. i may define the reality of a regan conservative and a massachusetts moderate. i may describe the difference between cutting taxes and
7:05 pm
raising taxes or being right to life and putting planned parenthood into romney care but that is the most i'm going to do. >> reporter: gingrich likes to say he is not going to give mitt romney hell, he is just going to tell the truth and it may feel like hell. we will have to see if he keeps a smile on his face. >> harris: others in the race. what are their strategies shaping up like? >> texas governor rick perry hasn't been in new hampshire. after the iowa caucuses he said he was going to go back to austin and reassess his campaign. he said we are running in south carolina. he will be at the debate tonight in new hampshire and tomorrow morning but leave the primary trail and go right to south carolina where he will be campaigning in the palmetto state's first in the south primary. then jon huntsman. the former utah governor bet it all on new hampshire. spent a big amount of time here. spent most of his money and effort here. and he hasn't gotten the kind
7:06 pm
of boos boost he was expectth r iowa. he wanted the attention on him. instead, most of it has been on santorum or gingrich. if he doesn't have a breakout performance he could be in serious trouble and his trail may have the end in sight. then ron paul. the texas congressman polling in second. a big libertarian streak of voters here in new hampshire. it is entirely possible ron paul would come in second place. would breathe all new life into his libertarian candidacy. you can't rule out ron paul being able to shake up the dynamic here in new hampshire. how he does in south carolina and states beyond a totally different question. >> harris: keeping us informed and in a fantastic interesting way. always good to see you, carl cameron, thank you. new polls show rick santorum on the rise in new hampshire after his strong showing in iowa. according to the latest real clear politics average which
7:07 pm
takes five recent polls in account, santorum comes in third behind mitt romney and ron paul. two weeks ago he was polling as low as 2%. in an interview tonight on huckabee, former governor mike huckabee asks rick be santorum if he endorsed romney in the last election, why he is challenging him now? >> what he did in massachusetts was the basis for obama care. we need a candidate that is starkly contrasts with obama on this issue and he isn't that candidate. >> you can catch the full interview tonight on huckabee. it airs right after fox report, 8:00 eastern. don't miss it. >> reporter: well, with voters saying the economy and jobs are big issues this election season we thought we would point out unemployment right now is higher than it has been going into any election year since world war ii. but it has been going down. just yesterday, new numbers for december from the labor department. the nation adding 200,000 jobs.
7:08 pm

7:09 pm

7:32 pm
vote and that includes some folks that may have voted for president obama the last go around. harris. >> harris: how do they target independent voters? >> they are really difficult, actually. because they don't tend to show up at campaign events where you can sign them up for e-mail lists. this they don't tend to go to websites and sign up and volunteer theirs personal information. do a self-searching sort of thing. do pay attention to the debates and television advertising, cable news coverage, mail circulars and talk to their friends but they like to make their decision with a little bit of distance for the campaign which makes it difficult for campaigns to get ahold of them. >> makes for interesting news on primary night because we never know what is going to happen until the last second always. always. >> harris: always good to see you, thank you. tomorrow night, "the fox report" heads to new hampshire for all the primary action.

not enough to support a heavy truck and the mild start to the winter can maybe be blamed for the lack of ice on that pond. meteorologist maria molina is live in the weather center. >> they should be frozen over and even lake erie has not reported any frozen ice on the lake which typically should have seen colding of air down in the great lakes to have some ice built up into the lakes. basically looking at mild temperatures here not just for today but basically over the past two months over parts of the upper midwest and northeast. that is why we have a lack of ice and lack of snow across both area. tore today again a record warmth across portions of the northeast. new york, broke a record again today. warmth expected to continue into the second half of the weekend across parts of the upper midwest and the mid atlantic. you mentioned 8 inches of ice not being enough to support a
7:37 pm
truck and this is very well the case. we do have some recommended minimum ice thicknesses to keep in mind. i would say if you are a person or you are considering walking over a pond that you think is frozen i would suggest at least 6 inches of ice being there before expecting that ice to probably break and you sink into very cold water. otherwise, 8 to 12 inches recommended for a car or small pickup truck. also a lack of snowfall because of how mild it has been out there. buffalo, new york, currently has only received 5.2 inches of snow. on average this time of year should have received 41.7. drastic as well in boston. one inch is all we have gotten so far and should have already received at least a foot of snow. lacking in snowfall across the northeast and midwest. tomorrow is another mild day. 43 the high temperature. new york city. 40 mississippi. 40 over rapid city. today, not looking at any snow out there. just a few isolated snow
