MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — For all the passionate support Donald Trump has amassed in New Hampshire, many Republicans and independent voters are just as passionate about not voting for the billionaire real-estate mogul.

They are an enticing target for the pack of Republicans who seek to turn a second-place finish in the nation's first primary into a boost in South Carolina and beyond.

Chris Christie, Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio and John Kasich combined account for roughly 45 percent of support in recent preference polls.

They share similar ideas about policy and politics, but their pitch to voters differ as they seek to come out on top.

What they all agree on: It's in New Hampshire where their White House aspirations may find life — or come to an end.
