Transcript for Democrats, GOP Draw Different Conclusions From Jobs Report
It's "your voice, your vote" with just four days to go. Both candidates going all-out. And the final question into this final weekend. Today's jobs report, the last one before election day, boost obama? Or bolster romney's claims on the economy? Jake tapper is in ohio. Good morning, jake. Reporter: Good morning from a barn outside columbus, george. That's right, with this race so close here in ohio, any major event could tip undecideds or soft voters into the obama camp or the romney camp. So, all eyes are on the jobs report in this nail-biter of an election. Stumping for votes, the candidates leave no stone unturned. In west virginia, romney was heckled. What about the climate? That's what caused the storm. Reporter: He did some heckling of his own against the president. The president said he was going to consider putting in place a secretary of business. I don't think that what we need is another government bureaucrat that supposedly knows something about job creation. I think it would be helpful to have a president that actually understands job creation. Reporter: As the president did in green bay, vegas, and boulder. Fresh from hurricane sandy, he talked unity. There's no democrats or republicans during a storm. Just fellow americans. Reporter: But minutes after he profiled bipartisan, he launched some attacks of his own. Governor romney's been using all of his talents as a salesman, to dress up the very same policies that failed our country so badly. The very same policies we've been cleaning up after over these last four years. Reporter: The president is heralding endorsements, including one from inspect mayor mike bloomberg, who has cited hurricane sandy and the need to combat climate change. Surrogates are in high use. He can't run on his record. Women are coming to us saying they're hurting. You want to run for the top, you should vote for barack obama. Reporter: Vice president biden popped up on letterman last night, touting the good things about voting early. If you vote early, you don't have to pay taxes. I'm sorry. I'm being told that's not accurate. Reporter: Talking to people in each campaign, george, it's like talking to people on two different planets. Both predict victory here in ohio and nationally. And both project different turnout scenarios on tuesday. We'll find out who is right tuesday night, george. We certainly will, jake. Thanks very much. Let's turn to matt dowd for more on this, our political contributor. The jobs report, make much difference? The economy is already in at this point in the game. The last six months are baked in the perception. I think the jobs report won't have a dramatic effect on this election. We see mitt romney in the state of pennsylvania, hasn't gone republican since 1988. Democrats say it's desperation. Hail mary pass for him. He's having a difficult time winning ohio. If he doesn't win ohio, he has to find another route. It's very unlikely that he wins pennsylvania and loses ohio. You think it's breaking for obama? I think the trajectory has slowly moved to the president after sandy. I think it's moved to him. Mitt romney has 48 hours to adjust that. And this week is huge for mitt romney.
