President Obama, Romney spend final hours campaigning

Posted: Updated:

(CBS) - We're in the final hours of the Presidential campaign.

And the race between President Obama and the former governor of Massachusetts, Mitt Romney seems to be tightening. A CNN/ORC International Poll shows the race at a dead heat.

49-percent of likely voters say they support the President and the same number say they back Romney.

President Obama is burning up the jet fuel criss-crossing the country looking for undecided voters and urging supporters to get out to vote. The President held rallies in New Hampshire, Florida, Ohio and Colorado Sunday. And he'll hit three more swing states today -- Wisconsin, Iowa and Ohio before heading home to Chicago for Election Day.

The President says he's just a prop now. He says it's the voters who have the power now to decide the nation's future.

Mitt Romney is working just as hard to win the presidency. He stumped in Iowa, Ohio, Virginia and Pennsylvania Sunday. The Pennsylvania stop was the first time he's visited the state since August. His aides say the polls have tightened in the traditionally Democratic state, giving Romney a chance to turn it from blue to red.

Governor Romney will campaign in Florida, Virginia and New Hampshire today before heading home to Boston to vote tomorrow.
