- Snap polls conducted after the third and final presidential debate Monday concluded that President Barack Obama beat Republican Party presidential nominee Mitt Romney on the issue of foreign policy. According to a CNN poll of registered voters who watched the debate, 48 percent believed Obama to be the winner while 40 percent favored Romney. Uncommitted voters survey by CBS gave Obama the victory by a wider margin of 53 percent to 23 percent.
- Obama heads back to the campaign trail Tuesday in some swing states, following his strong third debate performance, with Vice President Joe Biden keeping pace. While Obama will kick off the morning with a rally in Delray Beach, Fla., Biden will be in Toledo, Ohio, in the morning and Dayton, Ohio, in the afternoon. The Buckeye State is a critical battleground where the president’s lead dropped 5 percentage points in a month. A Quinnipiac University/CBS News poll shows that Obama’s lead in the Buckeye State now stands at 50 percent to Romney’s 45 percent. In September, the president had a 10 percentage point advantage, 53 to 43 percent, among likely voters.
- It's more of the same on Wednesday, when the swing states tour continues in Iowa, Nevada, Colorado, and then onto California for an appearance on the “Tonight Show” with Jay Leno.
