President Barack Obama is pressing to drive core supporters and wayward backers to the polls, while Republican challenger Mitt Romney reaches for an upset victory powered by anti-incumbent fervor on the final day of a race that polls suggest has tilted slightly in the presidentâs favor.
The candidates are chasing each other through eight of the most competitive states, as national and state-level data show Obama with a slim yet potentially decisive edge in the quest for the 270 Electoral College votes needed to win.
âWe have one job left, Romney told more than 1,000 voters chanting âone day moreâ at the airport in Sanford, Florida, today as he began his last-day campaign sprint. âWe need every vote.â
