Transcript for Mitt Romney, President Obama Resume Campaigns Post Storm
It's "your voice, your vote" with just five days to go. And both sides back to all-out campaigning. Jon karl with the battleground. And we have some new evidence that president obama's response to the superstorm has solidified his position. Reporter: That's right, george. Solid approval of the president's response to the storm. And narrow leads in all of the battleground states. With just five days left, this campaign is about to return with a vengeance. Not only did president obama tour the storm damage with new jersey governor chris christie. He also seemed to make a new republican best friend. I cannot thank the president enough for his personal concern and compassion for our state and for the people of our state. Reporter: The president returned the favor. I have to say that governor christie throughout this process has been responsive. He's been aggressive in making sure that the state got out in front of this incredible storm. Reporter: Cooperation on disaster relief works. It also plays well politically. In the latest abc news/"washington post" poll, 78% of likely voters said the president has done a good or excellent job handling the storm. In the wake of the storm, romney struck a more positive tone, campaigning in florida. But not directly criticizing the president. Good democrats love america just like good republicans love america. Reporter: His daughter dressed as datety pe and one of his boys as the grim reaper. The abc news/"washington post" poll shows the race is tied nationally. 49% for mitt romney. 49% for barack obama. But each side seems convinced their winning. The obama campaign points to the battleground states. All eight of the states where they're campaigning the hardest, the president is tied or winning. But romney points to michigan, pennsylvania and minnesota, three states thought to be solidly democratic, but where obama is now playing defense. The president, back on the campaign trail today. Going to wisconsin, colorado and nevada. Mitt romney will be campaigning in virginia. George, you can expect both of them to be campaigning virtually nonstop between now and tuesday. No question about it. They're going to be focused on the white battleground states and the pink in north carolina, over the next several days. Want to give you a sense of each side's strategy. What the obama campaign is trying to do is build a firewall in the big american he gets to 271 electoral votes. And if mitt romney wins all of the other battlegrounds right there, he'll come up a little bit short, which may explain, jon, one of the reasons the romney campaign is trying to put new efforts into minnesota and pennsylvania and michigan, where they have been behind so far. But if they're able to pick off any one of those three states, that's enough to put him over the top. And one of the things we're seeing, you talk about the travel in the last few days. These battleground states, jon, are also completely inundated by ads. We got some fun -- fun for us, but not so much fun for this little girl, who is pretty sick of it, right? Reporter: Yeah. I've got to tell you, george. If you get tired of all the ads, the personal attacks, the lies and distortions, you would understand how 4-year-old abigael evans feels. Take a listen. Just because I'm tired of barack obama and mitt romney. That's why you're crying? Oh. It will be over soon, abi. Okay? The election will be over soon, okay? Okay. Those campaigns and all of us might have to apologize to abi. Let's get news from josh.
