The current President is already embattled Democratic Carter suffered in a state of strong third party candidate, liberal Republican Congressman, who ran in 1980 as an independent after failing to win the Republican partys own nomination as a presidential candidate John Anderson. Anderson was very popular among liberal and moderate votes in New England, who typically leaned democratic but was dissatisfied with the policy of the Carter administration and Reagan viewed as too far to the right. The defection of these votes will push Carter below 30% of the vote and greatly expanding Reagans victory over Carter in new Hampshire. New England in General will prove Andersons strong region of the country, with all 6 New England States to give double-digit percentages in Anderson. In fact, new Hampshire will prove Andersons fourth strongest state in the country after Massachusetts, Vermont and Rhode island, it is 12.94% of the vote in the state was almost twice 6.61% he received nationwide.

In neighboring Vermont, Reagan won the state, only 44% of the votes and by a margin of 5.96%. Reagan won the neighboring state of Maine even less 3.36% margin. Relative to the nation, Vermont will trend Democratic by 17 points and Maine would trend Democratic over 9 points in the elections of 1980. However, new Hampshire, sandwiched in the middle, got a conservative streak to their policy on the North-East of the state. New Hampshire, ultimately, only state in New England to give Reagan an absolute majority of votes, with the commander of 57.74%. The state will trend 6 points to GOP relative to the nation in the 1980 election.

On the district map, Reagan covered all of New Hampshires 10 counties, the only state in the northeast that all of the counties to give the majority of Reagan. Reagan broke 60% of the votes in 3 counties.

One of the notable results of the County in 1980, which is reflected as the Reagans unique popularity in new Hampshire, as well as Carters 15 point drop in support in the state in relation to 1976, was the result, in rural Coos County in the North of the state. In 1976, Ford won, with winning 9 of the States countries, while Carter scored in one district victory with a 51-49 victory in the district CEP. Carters is the only County to win in 1976 was so drastic swing to be one of only 3 States 10 districts to give Reagan more than 60% of the vote in 1980, and Reagan got 60.08% of the votes in the district CEP.
