The presidential election is only six days away. This is the time for a major push in both camps. Unfortunately, Obama has bigger things to attend to because of Hurricane Sandy. He has halted his appearances in Ohio and other swing states to “be the President” and direct rescue to affected states. This has seemed to play well for the President’s approval rating, but the Romney camp says it is a ploy.
Romney on the other hand is charging forward with more of his unvalidated story-telling. Chris Matthews has this to share –
Obama is not without his critics. Some say he acted too quickly on Hurricane Sandy for political gain. Others praise his proactive approach. One image has hit the internet and spread with lighting speed –
Republican Gov. Chris Christie and Pres. Obama shaking hands could impact the president’s approval rating in a positive way. This could help Obama but the challenge of getting NYC voters to the polls could counteract this momentum. Hurricane Sandy could not have come at a worse time as far as the election is concerned. How will this “October Surprise” effect the campaign? We won’t know for sure until election day.
If you would like more information about where the candidates stand currently, take a look at CNN. They have done an excellent job of pulling all the information together. Remember to be an informed voter!
