    Obama, Romney plan last-minute visits to battleground Virginia

    Not that anyone needs a reminder, but with four days until the election, Virginia is still a focal point for the campaigns of President Barack Obama and Republican Mitt Romney.

    Just a day after the Obama campaign announced a marquee rally in Bristow this weekend featuring President Bill Clinton and a performance from commonwealth-native Dave Matthews, the GOP camp announced Mitt Romney will spend a portion of election eve Monday in Fairfax.

    Near-certain to be the final time the candidates will visit the “Mother of the Presidents” before the election, Obama’s event in Prince William County begins around 7 p.m. Saturday, while Mitt Romney’s speech in Fairfax is scheduled for 2:30 p.m.

    Additionally, two of Mitt Romney’s five sons – Tagg and Ben – will make a Loudoun County appearance Sunday, visiting the Sterling Victory Office at 2 p.m.

    The race in Virginia remains dead-locked. The lastest polling average from Real Clear Politics shows Romney ahead by half a percentage point.

    Nationally, the polls show an equally tight race—though Obama has the slight edge overall, according to the Real Clear Politics average.

    Tickets for Obama’s event in Bristow Saturday can be found at http://www.BarackObama.com.
    Tickets for Romney in Fairfax Monday can be found http://www.MittRomney.com/va

    well, rasmussen was wrong

    And Rasmussen has a slight edge for Romney!

    If you are an undecided voter, I highly recommend you read this report by the nonpartisan and highly regarded Congressional Research Service. It analyzes one central issue of the Presidential campaign: the effects of additional income tax cuts on future economic growth in the US:
