Krauthammer: NH Will Be 'Cannibalism of the Mainstream'
Today in New Hampshire, Gov. Chris Christie blasted Iowa third-place finisher Sen. Marco Rubio as "the boy in the bubble."
The New Jersey governor accused the Florida senator of dodging questions and limiting public appearances to canned speeches.
On Special Report tonight, Charles Krauthammer said New Hampshire is make or break for the "mainstream" candidates left in the race: Rubio, Christie, Jeb Bush and John Kasich.
"It looks as if this is going to be the cannibalism of the mainstream candidates," he said.
"If you don't pass Rubio and you are one of the three governors you really have to go home."
Krauthammer also differentiated between the brands of anti-establishmentism that Donald Trump and Ted Cruz represent -- Trump, he said, is a populist and Cruz is a conservative.
He said that the successes of Cruz and Rubio in the Iowa caucuses showed that "Republicans are likely to stay with their roots as a conservative party and not accept the siren song of populism that Trump is championing."
