October 19, 2012— -- A day before the third and final presidential debate, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio speak with George Stephanopoulos on the latest in the 2012 presidential contest, Sunday on "This Week."

President Barack Obama battled back in a contentious second debate with Republican presidential nominee Gov. Mitt Romney. Was President Obama's performance enough to re-capture the momentum in this deadlocked presidential race? As Gov. Romney shows strength in the latest national polls, can he close the gap in the key swing states where President Obama still leads? And how will the two candidates make their closing arguments in Monday's final debate on foreign policy?

Chicago mayor and former Obama White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel and key Romney supporter Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida discuss the latest in the 2012 presidential race, Sunday on "This Week."

Plus, the powerhouse roundtable debates all the week's presidential politics, with Democratic National Committee Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz; Faith and Freedom Coalition founder and chair Ralph Reed; former Obama White House environmental adviser Van Jones, co-founder of Rebuild the Dream; Fox News anchor Greta Van Susteren; and political strategist and ABC News political analyst Matthew Dowd.

The battleground map continues to shrink with just over two weeks until Election Day. What swing states will create the path to victory on Nov. 6? Will the battle for female voters waged by both campaigns determine the election? And with one debate showdown remaining, can President Obama seal the deal for a second term, or will Gov. Romney make his case to become commander in chief?

And "This Week" takes its weekly trip through history in "What Year Was It?" See the whole political picture, Sunday on "This Week."
