John McCain built a powerful coalition of independent voters and mainstream Republicans to overwhelm George Bush in New Hampshire's Republican primary, while Al Gore held onto enough of the Democratic base to win his fierce contest with Bill Bradley, a Los Angeles Times exit poll found. Like McCain, Bradley ran extremely well among independent voters, who can vote in either primary here.

New Hampshire voters are focused more tightly on the economy--and feel more pessimistic about it--than voters nationwide and as a result feel less favorably disposed toward President Bush than residents of other states, according to a new Times Mirror survey. New Hampshire residents surveyed gave Bush a 37% job-approval rating, compared to 46% nationally. Only 56% of New Hampshire Republicans approved of Bush's performance, far lower than his 78% rating among Republicans nationwide.

Republicans delivered a startling rebuke to President Bush on Tuesday night at the close of a tempestuous primary campaign that was cast as a referendum on the Bush presidency. Although he won the first-in-the-nation primary, 58% to 40%, over conservative challenger Patrick J. Buchanan, Bush's margin was far smaller than either campaign imagined. The percentages did not include write-ins for other candidates, which had yet to be tabulated.

In a corner of Patrick J. Buchanan's campaign celebration Tuesday night, reporters were crowded around Frank Luntz, hanging on his every utterance. Suddenly, the reality of his first national campaign hit the 29-year-old pollster. "It dawned on me," Luntz recalled a little later. "I'm a pollster for a campaign that's in the process of having one of the major upsets in New Hampshire campaign history. "That's pretty cool."

The normally staid Republican party of New Hampshire flew into a tizzy Monday when Rep. John E. Sununu announced he would challenge incumbent Sen. Bob Smith in next year's GOP primary. The decision by the three-term congressman and son of former Gov. John H. Sununu set the stage for what is likely to be a bitter, divisive and expensive primary. The race gained quick national attention because of the 50 to 49 advantage held by Democrats in the Senate.

Former U.N. Ambassador Jeane J. Kirkpatrick, "favorite daughter" of U.S. conservatives, has decided to seek the Republican nomination for President, friends said Friday. Kirkpatrick, 60, was a Democrat until she left the U.N. post in 1985, frustrated at not being chosen by President Reagan to be his third secretary of state.
