Last jobs report before election crucial in close race

(CNN) - The monthly jobs report - the last before the nail-biting election next week - may be the single most motivating event to take place at this point in the campaign.

On its own, it wouldn't be. But with a race so tight in so many swing states, swayable, uncommitted, undecided and even decided voters could be persuaded to cast a ballot for the presidential candidate they think can best propel the country forward.

Poll gives Donnelly 11-point lead over Mourdock

(CNN) – A poll of likely voters in Indiana showed Democratic Senate candidate Joe Donnelly with an eleven point lead over GOP rival Richard Mourdock, whose comments on rape and abortion in October drew consternation from Democrats and some Republicans.

The survey from Howey Politics and DePauw University indicated Donnelly, a three-term congressman, was at 47% among likely Indiana voters in the race for the state's U.S. Senate seat, compared to 36% who support Mourdock, the Indiana state treasurer. A Libertarian candidate, Andrew Horning, was at 6% in the poll.

Obama and Romney make closing arguments in CNN.com op-eds

(CNN) – President Barack Obama and his GOP challenger Mitt Romney, in opinion pieces published Friday on CNN.com, both write that bipartisanship is the only way to solve the problems facing the country today.

Mitt Romney: My vision for America

"We've watched gridlock and petty conflict dominate while the most important issues confronting the nation, like chronic high unemployment, go unaddressed. The bickering has to end. I will end it. I will reach across the aisle to solve America's problems."

President Barack Obama: My vision for America

"Because when hardship hits, America is at its best. The petty differences that consume us in normal times quickly melt away. There are no Democrats or Republicans during a storm - only fellow Americans. That's how we get through the most trying times: together."

Election souvenirs: T-shirts, buttons, bumper stickers and toilet paper

Washington, D.C. (CNN) - With less than a week before Election Day, souvenir stores in the nation's capital are stocked with Obama and Romney paraphernalia – shirts, bumper stickers, buttons, shot glasses, bobble heads and magnets.
