McCain-Obama target swing states on final weekend

Nov 30, -0001
NEW YORK: Republican John McCain and Democrat Barack Obama spent Saturday in a handful of swing states that could tip the balance in the
November 4 elections. McCain campaigned in Virginia, which has voted
Republican since 1964 but is increasingly looking favourable to Democrat
Barack Obama.
"I'm an American and I choose to fight," McCain said in
Newport News, Virginia, a town with a large military community. "Don't
give up hope," he urged supporters, "be strong, have courage and
fight. Fight for a new direction for our country. Fight for what's right for
America. Fight to clean up the mess of corruption, in-fighting and selfishness
in Washington."
Obama was in Nevada, a state that voted for George W. Bush four years
ago but looks promising for the Democratic candidate this year. The Obama
campaign is targeting a handful of such states in this final weekend of the
presidential contest, including Missouri, Colorado and Ohio. Obama told
supporters that in three days, they could change America.
"In three days you can turn the page on policies that have put the
greed and irresponsibility on Wall Street before the hard work and sacrifice
of folks on Main Street. In three days you can choose policies that invest in
our middle class, create new jobs, grow this economy so that everybody has a
chance to succeed. From the CEO to the secretary and the janitor. From the
factory owner to the men and women on the factory floor."
Obama's lead dipped slightly to five points, according to a
Reuters/C-SPAN/Zogby poll released on Saturday. Obama leads McCain by 49
percent to 44 percent among likely voters in the three-day national tracking
poll, down from a 7-point advantage on Friday (October 31). The telephone poll
has a margin of error of 2.9 percentage points.
