Nov. 2 - Republican Presidential nominee Mitt Romney asks Ohio voters,''do you want four more years like the past four years?'' Deborah Gembara reports.
The latest Reuters/Ipsos shows President Obama and Mitt Romney in a 'dead heat', 47 percent to Romney's 46 percent with days to go before the election. At a campaign stop in Etna, Ohio Romney worked to narrow the margin, pledging ro bring "real change" to America. For starters he promised to reach across the aisle and work with Democrats. SOUNDBITE: Republican Presidential Nominee Mitt Romney saying: "Alright, so this is a president who has promised a lot of things, but his record is very different than the promises. Instead of building the bridges that we needed in America, he built a broader and broader divide." Time in the battleground state is typically a good investment for any presidential candidate but especially for conservatives. --- no Republican has ever won the White House with out winning the midwest state. SOUNDBITE: Republican Presidential Nominee Mitt Romney saying: "When you see your neighbors tonight, or whenever you see them next, make sure and ask them, do you want four more years like the last four years, do you want to stay on the same path we are on, do you want to see continued decline in wages, do you want to see health insurance costs go up and up and up, is that what you want to see? They have to understand that they know by virtue of what they have seen for the last four years, what the next four years will be like under President Obama. We have a better way. We will bring real change to America and help Americans have a bright and prosperous future. We have got to do it, I am counting on you, we are going to make it happen, we are taking back America and building a stronger nation with a brighter future. Thank you so very much. Thank you. Thanks you guys." Polls show Obama has a slight lead in the states of Ohio, Iowa, Nevada and Wisconsin. In order to win, Romney needs a breakthrough in one of those states, or an upset in another state where Obama is more heavily favored.
