(Host)  With the Iowa caucuses behind them, GOP presidential candidates are taking their fight to New Hampshire, where the first-in-the-nation primary is now less than a week away. 

Linda Fowler is a professor of government at Dartmouth College.

Fowler says that conventional wisdom points to Mitt Romney doing well in New Hampshire.

She believes that the main obstacle for the Romney campaign could come from Ron Paul, who finished third in the Iowa caucuses. 

She says Paul’s message could sway some New Hampshire voters, who tend to be social moderates and fiscal conservatives.

(Paul) "His small government message, his ideas about not involving ourselves in other nation’s affairs, I think resonate with people in the state."

(Host) Fowler does not expect a strong showing from Rick Santorum, because of New Hampshire’s relatively small percentage of evangelical voters.
