Bay State activists pour passions into New Hampshire

They are the volunteers, the activists, the true believers who see Tuesday’s presidential election as crucial to the fate of the nation. They are willing to knock on hundreds of doors or make thousands of calls, driven by the desire to help sway the vote in favor of their presidential candidate.

Trouble is, they reside in Massachusetts, where polls project an easy win for President Obama over Republican Mitt Romney.
