Despite the growing menace from a massive storm bearing down on the US east coast, both presidential candidates are continuing to campaign vigorously in the swing states.
Modifying travel plans but never the message, in New Hampshire Barack Obama claimed Mitt Romney as president would be a retrograde step:
“But New Hampshire, the country has come too far for us to turn back now. We can not afford to go back to the policies that got us into this mess. We have got to continue with the policies that are getting us out of the mess. We have for to move forward, and that is why I am running for a second term as president of the United States,” proclaimed Barack Obama.
For the Republican challenger, Florida was his focus holding three rallies in one day to try to capture its 29 electoral votes are which are the biggest prize among states considered too close to call.
Mitt Romney told supporters:
“This is a time of big choices, of big consequences, it’s a big election. The president keeps talking about smaller and smaller things. we keep talking about larger and larger things. That’s why this movement is growing across the country, it’s why it will sweep the nation, it’s why we’re going to win in November.”
Latest polls have Obama leading Romney by 47 per cent to 46 per cent, in other words neck and neck. It means both will have to turn up the heat in this last sprint to the finish making the undecided voter the clincher.
