The United States is only six days away from electing the next president. It’s a particularly difficult decision to make in Northwest Nevada, one of the final battlegrounds where the unemployment rate is highest in the nation. CNN’s Miguel Marquez visits Washoe County, Nevada on the “Deciders Tour” to meet with voters who may very well decide this election.
Nevada’s unemployment rate is nearly 12%, yet polls show that Obama is consistently up by a point or two over Romney. While some believe Obama has made things better, others think recovery would be faster under Romney. And many are undecided. Marquez rides a horse in Maplewood Stables and speaks to fellow rider Julie WinkeI. She expresses the feeling in the state. “I hope the next president can turn things around so we can get back to where we were four years ago or even eight years ago even,” she says.
