New Hampshire and Iowa

NPR National Political Correspondent Elizabeth Arnold reports that likely voters in Iowa and New Hampshire seem to be placing more emphasis on the character of the presidential candidates instead of issues they've been emphasizing in their campaigns. Arnold has been speaking informally to voters, as the candidates have criss-crossed New Hampshire and Iowa. Tonight, the Iowa caucuses will be held. The New Hampshire Primary takes place a week from tomorrow.
