Stockwell superstar sandy we know -- one.
Postpone campaigning for a few days that Mitt Romney and President Obama are preparing to get back on the campaign -- With Election Day less than a week away and the latest job numbers -- due out this Friday Fox News insurers Monica Crowley.
And that's I'm Dennis -- what we can expect from the candidates as we enter.
The home stretch into the first few I think the big question is is is pending presidential today -- with Governor Christie is this of a positive for the -- It's a huge.
Positive -- bottom woman the one thing President Obama has been lacking recently I think Monica would agree with me.
Showing leadership in a bipartisan way the day after.
The worst ravages of a storm have been felt.
He's a hugely beneficial.
Short term plus for the president.
And I think he would hope that he'll have.
Visuals opportunities like this each and every day up to election that.
All right Monica.
The incumbent -- -- -- the leadership that -- dot talks about is it a valid thing does this work to the president's advantage.
-- look it's very nice that he -- taken the reins of the federal government here in a natural disaster and he will be photographed with the Republican governor of New Jersey and that will make for great photo -- All of that is very nice but that is the bare minimum for the president.
We talk about presidential leadership a natural disaster -- this the bare minimum of what we expect for the commander in chief in tough times.
I don't think he has crossed any new bar or new threshold for leadership in this case I think people expect this from the president.
-- point is that the major states that have been really hurt and taken the brunt of the storm.
Are all Blue States New Jersey New York Connecticut they were all going to vote for Barack Obama anyway.
It is the swing state of Ohio and now the increasingly swing state of Pennsylvania now coming into play.
That have taken.
-- really taken it a big cat with a storm.
Where it may help the president on the margins but then again Mitt Romney was photographed yesterday helping -- to -- hurricane relief can you can't have your point about the fact that most of the hurricanes.
The steady at mostly Blue States.
What if those of voters -- this low turnout in those states we -- I could have a depressive effect it is true I mean a lot of people are talking about.
Power may -- not being restored for another week which would take us into Election Day.
I know in New Jersey where my mom lives she said there's been some talk about.
Distributing absentee ballots to a lot of these -- down the shore so that they do have a chance to vote by -- in case power's not up.
But I -- live from the storm jobs report coming out on Friday if it is a particularly weak one.
How much -- -- hope the president well.
If I'm right and I think I am about the narrative benefiting from in this short term the clean up sandy.
The president wants to get through Friday eight with -- least possible dislocation.
-- -- it's particularly weak that could hurt him.
But if it's in the range of a pointer to.
Of change in unemployment.
And -- 150 -- thousand jobs created I don't think it's gonna have a big impact.
There's still the economy that -- is the number one issue on voters' minds and that is absolute change storm earlier this storm don't says we go into Tuesday.
With the economy we're gonna get and another jobs number.
Tomorrow -- -- Friday.
Is -- any this last minute wrangling on the economy gonna help or hurt the.
Well again I think it's if there's a big development that allows Romney or Obama to advance their argument right now the simplest way to analyze this election.
50% Obama 50%.
Romney and the swing states basically tied.
Sentencing last month's job report we're so anomalous Wright made it really that the numbers didn't make a lot of sense to a lot of internal contradictions in that child through -- That this one could go read a paper remember a month ago.
What we saw was no discernible effect on this race I think economic narrative in both directions is now sending concrete and I don't expect this to change that.
Lastly do you Monica you know to me I can't believe there -- undecideds out -- to be honest reviews you know it is -- -- yes it does Sheryl do you I'm I'm I'm yeah.
Besides that yes Iraq I have front of my problems above -- its luster weakness is directly to -- right I can't tell anyone else from Doug shown not what are you pointed at my that makes sense of my points is.
Isn't that the jobs now both candidates to be gaffe free not to make any gas terrible mistakes -- play conservatively -- Correct you'll find it the last couple of days of any presidential election that candidate -- blow it play it safe they don't too many risky interviews they just want to sort of get through Election Day I remember working for President Nixon during the last years of his life.
And he said when he was running in 67.
And looking at people are wondering have they voting get and how does not sit Scott -- -- Monica -- some great stories are not a good -- in one word Ohio everybody thank you very best of us got it today.
