'New Hampshire' Episode 1: What It Takes In The Granite State

Will 2016 mark the decline of the first-in-the-nation primary as we know it?

In presidential politics, New Hampshire has long been known as a place where “the little guy” can defy the odds. But in a nationalized 2016 race for the White House unlike any that’s come before it, does the little guy stand a chance anymore?

As a millennial who’s been living and breathing the campaign on the ground in New Hampshire over the past six months, few people have a better perspective on that question than CBS News Digital Journalist Jackie Alemany.

In the first episode of "New Hampshire" -- a HuffPost Originals limited series -- we see the disorienting new dynamic in this critical primary state through her eyes. And we also see what the candidates are like when their guard is down.
