Transcript for Obama, Romney Sprint for the Finish
I want to bring until co-anchor of "good morning america," anchor of "this week" and my co-anchor tomorrow night. George, you are here. Our latest poll shows three point as head for the president. What a difference ten days makes, diane. Look at our poll ten days ago coming out of the final debate, mitt romney was the one up three points coming out then. Over the course of the last ten days president obama has steadily closed the gap tied for much of that but as you say he is three points ahead and closed the began on handling the economy. I think that's what's most important here. Threes been a steady stream of encouraging economic news, good jobs number, consumer confidence, housing market coming off the bottom, stock market is up, add that all up, people are feeling better about how president obama's handling the economy basically tied with mitt romney. And, of course, the haging of the storm has also been part of this but the battleground states, what are we seeing right now. What we're seeing now is the president is either tied or ahead of all the key battleground states and hurricane sandy had to have helped there as well. The president's job approval is up to 51% and for most of the hurricane, people saw the president doing his job. They basically liked what they saw so as I said you look at those battleground states there, the president tied or ahead in all the battleground states right now. Well, we will be springing into action tomorrow as the voting begins and, george, i will see you very soon. You will. Of course on "good morning america," as well.
