Thanks to call both candidates making their final push is today before the polls open less than 24 hours from now.
The latest real clear politics -- average there shows the but candidates and a virtual tie let's look at these swing states in Virginia.
The gives the president a several percentage point advantage in other states like Ohio and Pennsylvania.
Joining me now -- Andy pause during these economic advisor to Mitt Romney and CEO.
Of CKE restaurants Andy good to see you.
Candidate Ron really -- and things can Mitt Romney.
Turn one of these states what does he need to do what -- did.
Within the next 24 hours decided to do that the good right now the Electoral College map is not leaning in his favor.
Well it all depends what what -- you look at and and you know I'm a businessman I.
I look at polls like like I look at at a business model and at the polls are only as good as -- underlying business assumptions and some of the -- Rasmussen Gallup Politico.
That don't allocate by party they just pull a large number of people they've either gotten it ahead or they've got -- -- The ones that have President Obama had our over polling Democrats 4% 5% there was a poll in.
A marriage poll in Ohio that over -- 9% that same poll in Virginia.
Actually admit up 21%.
Among independents but had Obama ahead by 2% itself over pulled Democrats so.
When you look at the polls really the momentum is in its favor the ground game is in his favor.
Early voting we've got about 93% of where we were in 2008 the Democrats are like at 82% so.
I think the momentum is clearly going in the governor's direction you don't I think these personal stops make a difference I think he's doing very well.
You don't think though that the fact that hurricane sandy -- again and the presidential election was not the focus of television news coverage of course you could get away from that advertisements.
But again it was not on the it could not bit above the fold on the front page of newspapers how did that not hurt mr.
I think it I think it slowed the momentum of the campaign but I do think that's picked back up.
And it'll be very interesting to see I think only history's going to tell house and you'll play out here because -- you do have the president acting like a president for a few days that was his job.
Then you but you've got people now that are kind of getting resentful because they're not getting gas they're not getting help for not getting the supplies they need.
And you don't know what impact it's going to have in states like new York New Jersey and particularly Eastern Pennsylvania.
Where if it discourages the -- if you have a lower turnout in those states -- going to have better results for for governor Romney so.
It out and anxious to see how the how the storm plays out historically but I think right now we've still got the momentum.
-- -- restless and this morning had that governor Romney upper percent budget change was tied yesterday's sell what we're we're very encouraged I'm very nervous about.
The potential of governor Romney doesn't -- there's a lot at stake here but I do feel very good about his ability to what to pull this thing out.
One thing that is a -- the health care law Wall Street Journal story today about.
Low wage employers are shifting more to part time workers from full time workers to avoid the penalty -- would -- Placed on them for not offering health care and you are mentioned.
In that very article that you story a couple of months ago to hire part time workers to replace full time employees.
If Mitt Romney won would you turn on a dime and move in other direction.
Absolutely right right the only reason -- there -- a huge number and -- of full time jobs one job.
Being not showing up in the unemployment number -- jobs because they're you take a full time job you break it you have to get to part time jobs.
If you look at wages and hours in the most recent BLS report on unemployment does he did look at the Bureau of Labor Statistics has labor as wages and hours dial one.
Even though there -- some job creation well a lot of bad as those part time job so.
Once we're not going to deal with obamacare people prefer to have full time jobs employers prefer to give people full time jobs because they're more -- -- other jobs better there is just better for the company.
We're just in a bad spot right now with obamacare where it's very difficult force to do so and -- -- -- governor Romney's elected we're going right back to full time that day.
-- -- CO CK restaurants you know the restaurants Carl's junior hardee's.
