Candidates Reach Out Once More To The Undecided

BOCA RATON, Fla. (October 22, 2012)--The polls show the race for the White House is a tie as President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney meet face-to-face for their final debate Monday night.

Mr. Obama’s deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter said, "it really now comes down to that small segment of undecided voters."

She told NBC's "Today" show, "The ground game is incredibly important at this point."

But she added, "We feel pretty good about where we are."

The debate Monday night will focus on foreign policy and the issue of Iran's nuclear program is certain to be addressed.

Romney campaign foreign policy adviser Dan Senor told NBC Monday that Romney's approach to Iran is that "we've got to reach a diplomatic solution."

He said the Obama administration's policy on Iran for the past four years hasn't discouraged Tehran from moving forward with its nuclear ambitions.

Over the weekend Republicans accused Mr. Obama of leaking word of possible negotiations with Iran for political gain.

Throughout the campaign, foreign policy has been an Obama strength, but some recent polls show his advantage narrowing.

A Pew Research Center poll last month found that 47 percent of those surveyed favored Obama to make "wise decisions about foreign policy," while 43 percent preferred Romney.
