The scoop on Tuesday, Feb. 9: 5 things to know this morning

Hillary Clinton is having an unexpectedly hard time persuading women of all ages to rally behind her cause on the eve of the New Hampshire primary. That became evident when a new CNN-WMUR survey showed Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont beating Clinton among women by eight percentage points. That's a big shift from the results last week in the Iowa caucuses, where Clinton won women by 11 points. Clinton's struggles with women underscore the extent to which she has not yet figured out how to harness the history-making potential of her candidacy in the same way that Barack Obama mobilized minorities and white liberals excited about electing the first black president.

The surge of youthful Sanders supporters has already reshaped the Democratic presidential contest. Both are now trying to seize the mantle of hope in that race, in the final days ahead of new Hampshire's first-in-the-nation primary. Read more.
