A mere 48 hours before America chooses its next president, Hardball’s Chris Matthews will sit down in Cleveland, Ohio with Vice President Joe Biden,who will make one of his final cases for President Obama’s re-election.
Biden is making a trio of stops in the Buckeye State, including in Lakewood, Freemont and Lancaster. Obama will also be in Ohio, at the University of Cincinnati. He’ll also make stops in New Hampshire, Florida and Colorado.
Ohio, of course, is shaping up to be the single most important state in the presidential election. No Republican has ever been elected to the White House without taking the state.
Mitt Romney will also be in Ohio, holding a rally in Cleveland, before heading to Iowa and Pennsylvania.
The final pre-election poll from the Columbus Dispatch finds President Obama with a two point lead over Romney in Ohio, 50% to 48%. But that’s within the survey’s 2.2 point margin of error.
Tune into Hardball at 5 p.m. and again at 7 p.m. to catch Matthews’ interview with Biden.
