Post Show Thoughts: Final Word of the Campaign

The big news out of Meet the Press this morning was the debut of the final NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll that shows President Obama ahead of challenger Mitt Romney by a one percentage point margin.

Even with the tight national polling, both sides exuded confidence this morning. President Obama's Senior Adviser and campaign architect David Plouffe asserted, "I'm very confident, David, two days out from election, that the president's going to be re-elected on Tuesday night."

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) had similar confidence about Mitt Romney's chances in Cantor's home state. "We're going to win this state and i think we're going to win it a lot bigger than most people are predicting," Cantor said. 

You can watch the entire interviews with David Plouffe and Leader Cantor on our website as well as our roundtable discussion with full analysis on Tuesday's election and how some of the larger moments in the campaign may or may not affect the outcome of the race. 

Also, with the country still reeling from Hurricane Sandy that left 2 million people still without power across the East Coast, Newark, New Jersey Mayor Cory Booker joined the roundtable to discuss the progress being made just under a week after the storm's passing. 

Booker gave the response effort from all levels of the government "high marks," but cautioned it is going to be "a very difficult road to get out of a state of emergency," in the Garden State. 

We'll be back next week and be sure to catch David this Tuesday night as part of NBC’s primetime network coverage of the 2012 Presidential Election.

If it's Sunday, it's Meet the Press.
