Roller-coaster campaign concludes with Tuesday's vote

Washington (CNN) - A roller-coaster ride of an election campaign, buffeted by a superstorm and missteps on both sides, finally concludes Tuesday when America decides if President Barack Obama gets a second term or Republican challenger Mitt Romney will move into the White House in January.

In a contest reflecting the nation's deep political chasm, Obama and Romney ran dead even in final polls that hinted at a result rivaling some of the closest presidential elections in history.

    Romney Ryan so sure of a win they have to campaign on voting day in some states. there is only one reason for that theya re not sure they can stop them going to Obam and if they do they they lose
    You guys have Obama at 237 add Nevada as king suggests that 243 Ohio 18 = 261 and Wisconsin takes him over the top. thats a minimalist view Iowa has been outside margin of error all along and thats 6 more.
    Michigan and Pennsylvania are and will remain out of reach of Romney/Ryan.
