Manchester, New Hampshire (CNN) - Pam Englander has lived in Manchester, New Hampshire for 13 years. She's not a Republican so she doesn't care about the candidates but she enjoys watching the competition.
"People's dissatisfaction with Obama not doing all he'd say he'd do has made people look for an alternative," said the lifelong Democrat. She'd love to see Ron Paul win because she believes he'd be easy to defeat.

She says she cares as passionately about the economy as the Republicans but is troubled by their stand on many social issues, like gay rights. "Their insensitivity," she says to be more specific.
Her favorite of the Republicans is Huntsman "because he's smart and rational and doesn't shoot from the hip."
But she'll stick with Obama who is "in an uphill battle" because she believes he needs time to fix a lot of things from the Bush administration.
