(AP) — The Democratic presidential race is deeply unsettled heading into the New Hampshire primary.

With Iowa's caucuses unable to declare a clear winner, it may be up to Tuesday's primary to put some structure around the chaotic contest.

Questions about turnout hang over the New Hampshire vote, which coincides with a rise in anxiety among Democrats and an increase in confidence among Republicans.

Low turnout in New Hampshire would suggest Democratic weakness at the ballot box, at least for now.

And if Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders fails to turn out new voters favoring his ultra-liberal platform, his candidacy could look weak.
