David Plouffe, a senior White House adviser, said that the polls will tighten before the election and is far from over during an interview on NBC's "Meet the Press" Sunday. "[W]e're not going to win battleground states by 10 or 12 points," Plouffe said. "This race is gonna tighten."
"There's gonna be ups or downs. We know the media is anxious to write the Romney recovery and comeback story. We understand that, first of all, we're not going to win battleground states by 10 or 12 points. This race is gonna tighten. We built the presidential campaign with the belief that it's gonna come down to a few votes in a few states. So this race is gonna tighten. We do have an edge right now in a lot of battleground states.
