It's almost over: One last appeal to voters

On the Trail: Mitt Romney visits five states on this final day of campaigning, while President Obama visits two.

ORLANDO — Mitt Romney visits five states in this final day before the election while President Barack Obama hits two.

Romney's day starts here in must-win Florida. The GOP nominee then heads to Virginia and Ohio, two other states critical to his chances. He’ll finish the day in a conservative area of New Hampshire, near where he announced his candidacy more than a year ago. Finally, Romney will spend the night at his home outside Boston.

Obama has a slower final-day schedule. He will hold a morning rally in the college town of Madison, Wis. Then he goes to Columbus, the capital of Ohio – two hours before Romney gets there.

Vice President Joe Biden spends the full day in Virginia.

And GOP veep contender Paul Ryan makes a five-state dash that starts in Reno, Nev., goes through Colorado and Ohio, and ends near his hometown in Milwaukee, Wis.

After Romney visited the suburbs of Philadelphia on Sunday – entering to the theme song from “Rocky” – Bill Clinton will spend all day Monday in the state. The ex-president campaigns in the coal country of the western part of the state and finishes with two stops in the east – near the populous areas around Philadelphia.

Polls show the race dead even nationally, but  the president continues to cling to a small lead in most swing states.
