It is easy to see which Democratic candidate Trump and Fox are worried about as Sean Hannity showed up at Biden’s rally in New Hampshire.
Here is Hannity at the rally:

Why would Sean Hannity be popping into a Joe Biden rally if the conventional media pundit wisdom that Biden is DOA was true? The answer is that Trump and Fox News both know that there is still a reasonable chance that Biden ends up being the Democratic nominee.
Trump and Fox News are all in on the Joe Biden smear campaign, and they aren’t going to let a couple of early state primaries slow them down.
Hannity is in New Hampshire for Trump’s rally that was down the road from Biden’s, but New Hampshire isn’t a big state. He could have chosen a Buttigieg, Sanders, Warren, or Klobuchar event, but he picked Joe Biden because, in the Republican mind, Joe Biden remains the biggest threat to Donald Trump.
