George Stephanopoulos -- here's that George -- the first window onto what people are saying epic about a poll and I saw surprising the first when he noticed when we asked you what they've waited for the country is going. On the right track -- in the wrong direction just a year ago 77 were percent of the country -- we're on the wrong track even as late as August -- was 69% look at today. Down to 52%. Dramatic pretty dramatic increase in optimism over the last several weeks we also asked about the candidates. And the economy. President Obama has a -- -- is -- right down in front of us there 52 to 44% on empathy being in touch with people's problems but an overall trust to handle the economy. -- looks a little bit and governor Romney has a slight advantage. Over President Obama fifty to 47 so different views there on the candidates in the economy -- time calculating. Your first campaign 1988. Strike that takes over 2525 years or so what's the most important thing you're going to be watching tonight I'm looking at three thanks tonight the first one -- a number that number 74%. That was the white chair of the electorate. Four years ago in 2000 he's been going down every year if that goes up this year that is good news for governor Romney if it continues to go down. That will be good news for President Obama the second they'll be looking at his estate in early state Virginia the polls close there at 7 o'clock. Governor Romney has to win that state to be in the hot. For 270 electoral votes if he doesn't -- President Obama does he will be on his way to victory tonight and then finally going to be looking.
