house, with 27 days to go. It's "your voice, your vote." And just one day before the v.P. Showdown, there's more signs of a mitt romney surge. He's pouring it on in the state that most needs to turn, ohio. That's where abc's david muir reports from now. Good morning, david. Reporter: George, good morning to you. With the new national polls showing this race, now, tightening, mitt romney here in ohio, looking to build on his momentum. But he had company here. The president here, as well, looking to hold on to his slim lead here in the buckeye state. Dueling rallies in ohio overnight. The president trying to hold on to his shrinking lead here, in front of a crowd of 15,000. His message, tailor-made. When you think about ohio and when governor romney said we should let the auto industry go bankrupt, we said no. We're not going to take your advice. Don't boo, vote. Reporter: The newest poll shows the president's lead tightening to just four points here in usual, ohio. Mitt romney, knowing no republican has won the white house without ohio. I've been watching some of the president obama's rallies. And they chant, four more years. Four more years. And today, there's 28 days before the election. I think the right chant ought to be for them, four more weeks. Four more weeks. Reporter: But overnight, the romney campaign answering questions about something else. A new interview in which romney discusses a crucial social issue, abortion. Romney telling "the des moines register," there's no legislation that concerning abortion, that would be part of my agenda. Do I believe the supreme court should overturn roe v. Wade, yes? Reporter: And this is what he said about planned parenthood in march. Planned parenthood, we're going to get rid of that. Reporter: The obama campaign pouncing. The romney campaign saying this new interview is no shift. Telling abc news, mitt romney is proudly pro-life. And he will be a pro-life president. With the president still in the lead here in ohio, governor romney was very clear in that overnight rally, telling people in the crowd to go back to your neigfind someone who voted for president obama last time and bring them to our side. George? David, in clearing up the back and forth on abortion. Are they now saying, is the campaign saying the governor does still support overturning roe v. Wade? Reporter: They won't go that far. They're just saying it doesn't represent a shift, george. But the obama campaign saying, this represents a candidate who is trying to move to the center, a more moderate mitt romney. This is clearly an issue that's not going to go away. David muir, thanks very much. Diane sawyer and I will have live coverage of the next big debate. The v.P. Candidates go at it at 9:00 p.M. Eastern, 6:00 p.M. Pacific. The moderator will be senior correspondent martha raddatz.
