By five points over governor Mitt Romney -- average all the pulls together -- up to Jeanne Shaheen.
Is the senator -- Democrat from New Hampshire former governor joins us now to talk about her state and to talk about broader election issues but before we do that.
What's your level of confidence that the president wins in the swing state of New Hampshire.
Well listen this is not very close election we've now mad throughout the whole campaign.
The polls the only poll that counts is the one on Election Day we all know that and so people are working very hard.
I'm trying to get it out for President Obama.
Right turnout turnout turnout so if you look at it and try to.
Kind of use conventional wisdom to handicap this race you would probably say that nationally it's as close as it could possibly be and even a -- and we don't know is gonna win the popular vote.
But it seems to be.
That if you just look at the data that's come in average all the polls together the president has a slight advantage.
In the swing states Ohio he's up you know 234 points whatever it might be.
He wins Ohio it's very difficult for Romney so with that said.
As a Democrat what's your biggest concern going into tomorrow what are you most worried about that might go wrong.
Well you said -- it's turnout turnout turnout and whoever comes out to vote tomorrow wins this election.
If that's Democrats and hopefully the president wins if Republicans and it's an all likelihood Mitt Romney wins I think the good news here in New Hampshire is that we have.
Voters are very engaged I tacked to the secretary of state bill Gardner.

Yet if the president's -- elected or Mitt Romney -- -- Where does that uncertainty -- -- mean how does it suddenly.
It's all been a job vice president -- talking about the the fever breaking in all of -- sudden will be able to make it.
Get to some sort of an agreement but are you confident how to think suddenly get solve what changes.

Democrats and Republicans interest to address the fiscal challenges -- we're facing.
To avoid that cuts the automatic cats that are coming in -- always been and our -- -- well it has been but hopefully.
-- once the elections over people are gonna roll up their sleeves sit down and work together to get this done because it's gotta be -- together you know one of the things that has impressed me.
Throughout this campaign is how much we hear.
From voters that they want us to work together in Washington to address -- country's challenges and so I'm hopeful.
That regardless of who gets elected and and again my candidate is Barack Obama better.
That we can work together to address the very real issues that we face wish you know.
One of the things -- and that would be very helpful listing and the uncertainty around.
Our debt and deficit so that business could invest again that will be good.
-- to help create jobs to keep this economy moving.
Slightly higher taxes though and slightly lower -- maybe more than slightly on both counts.
In terms of what we get it should you know benefits and entitlements so that both sides have to give is that fair so we're looking at a.
I think everybody has -- compromise and everybody needs to share in addressing this challenge.
