Hours To Go Until the Presidential Election

In the race for the Presidency, the latest CBS News poll shows Barack Obama with a 13-point lead over John McCain nationwide. McCain still predicts he'll win and is racing across the country in his final hours to drum up enthusiasm he says is surging.

Election day is less than 36 hours away and the candidates are using star power to get out the vote.

Superstar Rocker Bruce Springsteen voiced his support for Barack Obama Sunday. Over 80-thousand supporters weathered the pouring rain to rally their candidate.

Senator Barack Obama said, "We've been through an 8 year storm but a new day is dawning. Sunshine is on the way."

Both candidates are working around the clock to shore up support. John McCain campaigned in Pennsylvania and New Hampshire Sunday, before heading to Florida for a midnight rally.

Senator John McCain said, "We will succeed, we will win."

A new CBS poll shows Obama has a 13-point lead over McCain. 1 in 4 voters have already cast their vote- and Obama leads by 15 points among these early voters. Only 8-percent remain uncommited.

McCain aides say they are closing the gap and swinging the undecideds theri way. They predict a come from behind win. Monday, McCain will hopskotch through seven battleground states. All but Pennsylvania voted for George Bush in 2004. This year- they are in jeopardy.

Obama is also deep in republican territory. He'll spend the last day of the race crisscrossing Florida, North Caroline and Virgina, traditionally red states, where polls show Obama with slim leads. Monday night, both McCain and Obama will head back to their home states to vote and wait for all Americans to do the same.
