There will be some dueling speeches in Ohio today, as both President Obama and Mitt Romney are campaigning in that key swing state. President Obama is going to deliver a speech on the economy around 1:45 pmET in Cleveland, and five minutes later, Mitt Romney is going to take the stage, literally dueling, in Cincinnati.
The stakes are high for both candidates. There's a new "Washington Post"/ABC News poll that shows crucial independent swing state voters don't think very highly of either of the candidates' economic plans. Only 38% have a favorable view of the president's plans, 35% have a favorable view of Mitt Romney's plans. And they are both within the margin of error.
Jim Talent, former Missouri senator and Romney Campaign senior economic adviser, talks with Soledad this morning to clarify Romney's prior comments on hiring teachers and police officers. He also argues that Romney would be better able to help the economy grow.
