The Daily Mail reports:
Mitt Romney today cast his ballot in Massachusetts before jetting off to last-minute campaign stops in the crucial swing states of Ohio and Pennsylvania as the battle for the presidency entered its final hours.
The candidates are nearly neck-and-neck, with Gallup and Rasmussen giving Romney 49 per cent of the national vote ahead of Obama's 48 per cent. An internal poll provided to MailOnline by a Republican party source puts Romney one per cent ahead in the swing state of Ohio.
Romney started his final day of campaigning by casting his ballot in Belmont, Massachusetts alongside his wife Ann and their family. He will now fly to Cleveland, Ohio and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to meet campaign workers at two extra stops added at the last minute.
Obama has stayed in Chicago where he called campaign volunteers across the country and lined up interviews for later today. He's also scheduled a basketball game - somewhat of an election ritual.
The last gruelling day comes after both men appeared overwhelmed at emotional campaign stops on Monday. Tears streaked down Obama's left cheek from the corner of his eye at one point, while Romney seemed stunned by the reception.
