Candidates reach out once more to the undecided
BOCA RATON, Fla. (AP) – The polls show the race to be a tie as President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney meet face-to-face for their final debate tonight. And, as Obama deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter says, “it really now comes down to that small segment of undecided voters.”
She told NBC’s “Today” show, “The ground game is incredibly important at this point.” But she added, “We feel pretty good about where we are.”
Tonight’s debate will focus on foreign policy.
Throughout the campaign, foreign policy has been an Obama strength — but some recent polls show his advantage narrowing. A Pew Research Center poll last month found that 47 percent of those surveyed favored Obama to make “wise decisions about foreign policy,” while 43 percent preferred Romney.
