Transcript for Your Voice, Your Vote: Countdown 30 Days
Now to the race for president, "your voice, your vote" and just 30 days to go now until the election and both candidates trying to capitalize on their own momentum. Governor romney fueled by his debate performance in florida all weekend long drawing his biggest crowds yet and president obama with that new unemployment number back to where it was when he took office teaming up with bill clinton in california, and clinton will be on the campaign trail all week, and this as a new gallup poll showing the tighter race after the debate. The president up by three points after being up by six points at his peak. Abc's david kerley is on the campaign trail tonight in florida tonight. Reporter:9,000 flag-waving romney supporters jammed the town square, 6,000 last night, all ready to turn the president out of office. You all have the chance to hear his answers or his not answers, nonanswers. Now, of course, days later we're hearing his excuses, and next january we'll be watching him leave the white house for the last time. Reporter: Team romney is feeling the momentum from his debate performance and the president's campaign is realizing he didn't perform at his peak. I think you can assume he reviewed the tape, and it will inform -- it will inform how he handles these subsequent debates. Reporter: It wasn't all bad news, the president was buoyed by the drop in the unemployment rate to below 8%, and he broke his own record by raising $181 million in just september, putting him on track to hit a billion dollars, and tonight the president is doing even more fund-raising in los angeles appearing at a small event with bill clinton too. But it's an issue from the debate -- governor romney's central $5 trillion tax cut. I don't have a $5 trillion tax cut. Reporter: -- That has the campaigns arguing in television and web ads. Not telling the truth. Reporter: So what's the truth? Romney does want to cut tax rates. That would reduce revenue by nearly $5 trillion over 10 years. He says he would offset that loss by eliminating loopholes and deductions, but he has refused to say which ones leaving him open to attack by team obama. Mitt romney's solution is he just decided there wasn't math involved in this problem, and that's absolutely crazy. Reporter: While the president continues that fund-raising swing, mitt romney will deliberate blistering foreign policy speeches attacking the president on middle eastern policy. That is tomorrow.
