In the waning hours before New Hampshire's first-in-the-nation primary voting began, U.S. Democratic presidential candidates took varied approaches to the expectations game as they look to advance deeper into what could be an extended fight for the party's nomination. Only once in a half-century has a Democrat become the presidential nominee without winning either Iowa or New Hampshire. Bernie Sanders for a number of reasons. Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren needs a strong finish after coming in third in Iowa to Sanders and Buttigieg.

The former vice president noted on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" that Sen.

As Buttigieg has risen from practical anonymity, he has also faced intensifying criticism for his lack of national experience and supposed difficulty connecting with black voters, a key demographic.

The president went on to mock Democrats for administrative mishaps last week in Iowa, the first state to vote, which left them unable to declare a victor.

Criticising Nancy Pelosi, the Democrat speaker of the House, he said: "I had somebody behind me who was mumbling terribly, mumbling, mumbling". "It was between him and Biden".

"Even though Bernie and I are friends..." It's unclear how many precincts they intend to contest.

The US president held a massive rally in the city of Manchester on Monday night, packing out a 10,000-capacity stadium, with many left outside.

It was a closing argument for the senator, who hopes to have a significant showing in New Hampshire on Tuesday before he heads to the next early states Nevada and SC.

People listen to Democratic presidential candidate Sen.

Biden's purported ability to beat Trump in an election has been a central theme of his campaign so far.

Iowa Democratic Party Chairman Troy Price reiterated this during a news conference Monday in Des Moines. (Superdelegates aren't allowed to vote on the first ballot.) If no candidate gets this majority of pledged delegates, then a second ballot (or more) will take place and both pledged and automatic delegates can vote this time.

New Hampshire House Speaker Steve Shurtleff, who endorsed Biden less than a month ago, spoke about him over the weekend as if he were already eliminated from contention.

Buttigieg says he still has to pinch himself about his performance as just one of those presidential hopefuls. "The sad thing for me personally is that he's such a terrific individual". Forward! Forward! Forward! That's where we're going to go, ' she yelled. Biden said of Sanders in the interview.

Warren sought to project confidence on Monday, telling reporters she's "been counted down and out for much of my life". "He blames the generals that he commands", Klobuchar said during her rally in Exeter, N.H. "You get back up".

If Klobuchar converts voters, it could come at the expense of Biden - and Buttigieg. Candidates need to get at least 15% of the vote in a district or statewide to reach the delegate threshold. Democratic turnout in the Iowa caucus last week was lower than in 2016. She calls herself "super torn".

The 78-year-old champion of Medicare for All and wealth taxes has stayed true to his anti-big business roots throughout the campaign. But his campaign is also lowering expectations and stressing the importance of diverse states like SC, where he holds a strong polling lead at present.

On Monday, Buttigieg, the former mayor of South Bend, Indiana, tried to woo Sanders' progressive supporters while sticking to his centrist tack.

Like Buttigieg, his confidence is connected to the strength of his organization.

Biden's campaign has long said he expects to do better in states where there are more Latinos and African Americans.

However, numerous fresh-faced supporters at Sanders' occasion have been conscious that this was their final shot.

The last five New Hampshire state surveys also showed Sanders in the lead.
