BLUE HAMPSHIRE

“I credit him with saving the auto industry and I think he did a great job with the banking industry,” Haslam said.

She was fed up with Congress.

“I’m trying to just send a message that I want Congress to work with the president, not against the president,” Haslam said.

Salem voter Shawn Dragonetti went with Obama.

“He explained his platform better than Romney did,” Dragonetti said.

Some found both Romney and Obama lacking. Haley Gustafson of Hampstead said she voted for Libertarian Gary Johnson.

“I want a third party,” Gustafson said. “It’s about sending a message.”

David Nelson of Derry hoped whatever the result, those elected would work together for the benefit of everyone.

“I just hope whoever wins will be mindful of a divided electorate, if the outcome is close, and govern appropriately,” Nelson said. “There’s no mandate to be found in a narrow victory. Let’s try to find common ground.”
