With only two weeks left until the election, the President and Gov. Romney are making their way through the swing states to garner support for their campaigns.

Do you think, at this point, that there are still undecided voters?

***********************************************************************

On the scene: Obama in Davenport this morning; Romney in Cedar Rapids tonight

Davenport, Ia. – Today’s a big day on the Iowa presidential campaign trail.

President Barack Obama will appear at the Mississippi Valley Fairgrounds here shortly in the kick-off to a two-day, six-state sprint aimed at rallying supporters in key states and capitalizing on a victory in the final debate Monday night.

And that’s not all. Republican nominee Mitt Romney will appear in Cedar Rapids this evening, likewise rallying supporters and getting out the vote in this extremely close and extremely pivotal state on the way to 270 electoral votes

Obama will push hard on voter registration, early voting and campaign volunteerism, themes the campaign has pushed hard in recent weeks.

A long line of supporters who appeared to be evenly split between Iowans and Illinoisans snaked through the fairgrounds on Wednesday morning, dodging mud puddles but enjoying unseasonably warm late-October weather.

U.S. Rep. Dave Loebsack warmed up the crowd on a fairgrounds lawn under massive American and Iowa flags and the familiar “Forward” campaign banner.

Romney will speak from a hangar at the Eastern Iowa Airport at about 7 o’clock this evening – part of a Republican barrage of Iowa that will also include Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell, and RNC Chairman Reince Priebus.

The Romney event is billed as a “victory rally” and will seek to build on the nationwide momentum that has tightened the race.

I'm not sure how you could be undecided at this point, but apparently it's possible.  I live in Davenport, the fairgrounds are 15 minutes from my house.  I would have loved to have gone but I had too many other things going on today.

Romney's coming to my town in OHIO tomorrow.  Woohoo!  They had to cancel our trick or treat nite for the event.  I'm taking my boys to see the event.  Glad they are going to experience the political process in action.

I would think most people have made up their minds by now.

I'm sure most have made up their minds by this point. At least, I would hope so.
