The battle for President

It's been exactly a week since superstorm Sandy touched down in New Jersey but its reverberations may be felt tonight. With the presidential race essentially tied, even small changes to the electorate could influence the outcome. And Sandy could go down in history as a hurricane that cost one of the candidates the White House.
Who will win the race to the White House will depend on which campaign gets out more of its supporters to the polls. The Obama campaign has been pushing its supporters to vote early. We get a behind the scenes peek into the famed Obama campaign organisation.
He has four years under his belt as US President and is campaigning hard to convince voters he needs second term. America's 44th President Democrat Barack Obama is in an extremely close contest with his Republican rival Mitt Romney.
With over 20 years as a business executive, including co-founding the private equity firm, Bain Capital, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney decided in 1994 to try his own hand at politics. Now, almost two decades later, he faces his toughest challenge - to win the Presidential elections and unseat Barack Obama.
A feisty President Barack Obama ridiculed Mitt Romney as "all over the map" on foreign policy, accusing him of telling untruths and backing "wrong" policies in their fiercely fought final debate.
US President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney clashed fiercely in their second election debate, interrupting each other half-a-dozen times and accusing each other of dishonesty. Both White House hopefuls were on their game, as they fought over job creation and energy policy, 11 days after their first debate, which was generally regarded as a lackluster affair.
In a showdown at close quarters, President Barack Obama and Republican Mitt Romney sparred aggressively in their first campaign debate over taxes, deficits and strong steps needed to create jobs in a sputtering national economy. "The status quo is not going to cut it," declared the challenger.
