Sen. Toomey (R-PA): 'The undecided voters are coming our way'

As the presidential candidates head into their final day of campaigning, both President Obama and Mitt Romney are focusing on the biggest prizes: the elusive swing states.

CNN currently lists Pennsylvania as likely to "lean Obama," but both campaigns are fighting for the Keystone state. Just one day after Mitt Romney took the stage in Pennsylvania, President Obama is deploying Bill Clinton to the state for four campaign states.

Sen. Pat Toomey (R-PA), who campaigned with both Romney and Paul Ryan this weekend, weighs in on the final push for his state on "Starting Point" today.

"Republicans control the government at all levels by big numbers and I think that this election is going to be more like 2010 than 2008," Toomey explains. "I think Governor Romney is going to carry Pennsylvania."

Responding to polling that shows the state with 3% undecided voters, Toomey responds, "One of the standard time-honored rules in politics is that the undecided voters late in a race break to the challenger. If they're not with him now, they're not going to be with him tomorrow. I would argue that all of the swing states, frankly, probably all the swing stats in which President Obama is polling around 49%, he's going to end at 49%."
