It's an uphill battle with time running out, but GOP hopeful Chris Christie isn't giving up.

He's campaigning across New Hampshire trying to sway the hearts and minds of voters prior to Tuesday's primary.

"Feeling great. Looking forward to doing this town hall meeting and looking forward to tomorrow night," he told me Monday.

When asked if he hopes the undecided voters go his way, Christie replied, "Sure. Everybody is. It's a big jumble. We'll see what's going to happen, but I feel very good about it. Certainly our performance on Saturday night has changed the whole race."

The latest polls show him with only 5 percent of New Hampshire's votes, that's in sixth place out of nine candidates. But at least a third of voters haven't made up their minds yet.

So with just hours to go, he is staging four town halls like the one we were present for at a small metal fabrication plant.

For two hours, Christie explained his positions on social security, fighting ISIS, term limits in congress, pensions and repealing Obamacare.

The question: did it resonate?

"For me it's a no-brainer. I just hope people in New Hampshire see that; I think they will because he's put in more time here than anybody else," Gregory Skiff of Jersey City, New Jersey said.

"I'm here for the fifth time just to show my support and I don't really need any more convincing," Jenny Cheifetz of Bedford, New Hampshire said.

Christie is ready for the votes to come in.

"I'm looking forward to actual people actually voting rather than polls and pundits and all the talking," Christie said.

Voting polls open at midnight Tuesday in three small towns, but between 6 a.m. and 8 a.m. and throughout the day for the rest of New Hampshire.

By the way, what they like to say around here is that Iowa picks corn, New Hampshire picks presidents, which they do have a pretty good record of doing and we'll see who they pick tomorrow.
