IF THERE ARE ANY UNDECIDED VOTERS LEFT, IT'S TIME FOR THEM TO MAKE UP THEIR MINDS.
PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA AND REPUBLICAN MITT ROMNEY SPED THROUGH BATTLEGROUND STATES MONDAY--HOPING TO CONVINCE THAT NARROW SLICE OF AMERICANS THAT THEY CAN BEST LEAD THE COUNTRY.
THE PRESIDENT APPEARS TO HAVE AN EDGE IN THE RACE TO COLLECT 270 ELECTORAL VOTES. THAT MEANS ROMNEY HAS TO WIN MORE OF THE SWING STATES THAN OBAMA. OHIO TOPS THAT LIST.

10:56:14 the obama campaign does have options if they don't win ohio. They're not very good. The romney campaign has options as well, but they're even worse. It makes it even more difficult for them.
SIX STATES ARE TOSS-UPS ON THE EVE OF THE ELECTION.
SOUNDBITE: Liz Sidoti/AP Political Editor
10:34:08 it's going to come down to the difference between republican enthusiasm. the conservatives and people on the right are more enthused about this campaign than people on the left and democrats. Versus obama's ground game. what I mean by that is turning out young voters and minority voters, and turning out the democratic base votes.
WHILE THE MAJOR FOCUS IS ON THOSE WHO HEAD TO THE POLLS TUESDAY, A SIGNIFICANT NUMBER OF AMERICANS HAVE ALREADY CAST THEIR BALLOTS. BY ONE ESTIMATE, MORE THAN 30 MILLION HAVE LOCKED IN THEIR VOTE.
