Obama to campaign for Clinton in battleground North Carolina

While most national polls still favour Clinton to win, she has lost the comfortable lead she held late last month.

The Trump-Clinton choice has left many U.S. voters cold and polling numbers volatile, making it hard to predict who has a lock on the key states that will decide who wins the electoral college.

Motivation is key in the Tar Heel state, where Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are virtually tied. We plan to stream his remarks live within this story. "This is what life with the Clinton's looks like".

Trump can't win without carrying Florida, so Clinton can deliver a knockout blow if she captures the state's 29 electoral votes.

North Carolina is considered a critical swing state in the upcoming election and it is possible the election may not be won without it, said Obama.

Both campaigns argued Tuesday they were on the path to victory.

He said Mrs Clinton had become "unhinged" in recent days. "I'm going to do everything I can to make sure that four years from now we've still got an opening on the Supreme Court", Burr said last weekend.

"We're in great shape". And Obama suggested that when Trump called on supporters to monitor the vote in "certain areas", he was talking about predominantly minority precincts. Both spoke on ABC's "Good Morning America".

Back in the United States, the long and often unedifying 2016 White House race is now being fought in a few corners of a few states.

Always important in presidential contests, Florida has emerged as this year's most crucial state on the road to the 270 Electoral College votes needed to win the White House.

But Carr rarely makes those kinds of mistakes now; he has just three interceptions in 2016 despite leading the league in attempts. The Raiders assault was once again led by quarterback Derek Carr , who tossed for a spectacular 513 yards and four touchdowns.

On her own Florida swing Tuesday, Clinton hammered Trump as unsafe and divisive, highlighting in particular his treatment of women. A supporter of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump cheers during a campaign rally, Wednesday, Nov. 2, 2016, in Pensacola, Fla.

The Trump-Clinton choice has left many USA voters cold and polling numbers volatile, making it hard to predict who has a lock on the key states that will decide who wins the electoral college. He's Florida on Thursday.

While Trump has devoted perhaps his most valuable resource - his time - to Florida, Clinton has built a powerful ground game, backed by a dominant media presence, that dwarfs her opponent's. The GOP nominee has continued to insist the five men in the case are guilty of assaulting a Central Park jogger decades ago even though the men were all exonerated through DNA evidence.

The incumbent President has an approval rating of 52 per cent at the moment - that exceeds Ronald Reagan's from the Republican's eighth year in office.

Former President Bill Clinton made an unannounced appearance in Detroit Wednesday night to meet privately with black ministers, the city's mayor and other local leaders. But with Trump leading in Florida and OH, and with polls close in Colorado, New Hampshire, Nevada and North Carolina, the swing state sweep he would need to clinch victory appears within reach.

"Does the idea of continuing Barack Obama's legacy motivate you to vote for Hillary Clinton?".

Mook, her campaign manager, has decried what he called a "blatant double standard" following a CNBC report that FBI Director James Comey opposed releasing details about possible Russian interference in the US election because it was too close to Election Day.

In a letter to Congress, Comey said those emails might be pertinent to the investigation into Clinton's use of a private email server.

Meanwhile, the ongoing mystery of Trump's tax returns arose again.

Clinton's renewed focus on Trump's demeaning comments on women seemed aimed in part at baiting a response from the notoriously thin-skinned Republican.
