Ad Feedback

With just four days until the election both presidential candidates are back in campaign mode focusing on the battleground states.

President Obama had planned stops in Wisconsin, Nevada, and Colorado while Republican challenger Mitt Romney spent the day and night in Virginia.

Romney returned to normal campaigning in Florida Wednesday but political observers say the storm and its aftermath did alter the tone of his speech.

How will the storm impact how voters' view  the candidates? Quin Hillyer, senior fellow at the Center for Individual Freedom, has more on this and how the battleground states are shaping up, on CBN Newswatch, Nov. 1

He didn't criticize the president or mention him by name.

"Look, we can't go on the road we are on," Romney said. "We can't change course in America if we keep on attacking each other. We have got to come together and get America on track again."

The president also put aside partisan politics to work with New Jersey's Republican Gov. Chris Christie on Wednesday. Each praised the other's response to Hurricane Sandy.

"I cannot thank the president enough for his personal concern and compassion for our state and for the people of our state," Christie said.

"I have to say that Governor Christie, throughout this process, has been responsive," Christie said. "He's been aggressive in making sure that the state got out in front of this incredible storm."

The presidential race is still a dead heat. The latest ABC News-Washington Post poll has them tied at 49 percent.
