Delaware Gov. Markell 'impressed' by President Obama's ground game in key states

A majority of polls are just now opening for voters in on the East Coast of the United States. The latest CNN national poll shows President Obama and Mitt Romney in a dead heat. They’re tied at 47% among likely voters’ choice for president. So it’s clear that anything can happen today. Obama Campaign surrovate Gov. Jack Markell (D-Del.) talks to Soledad on "Early Start" this morning with his take on the campaign in his state.

Gov. Markell says he feels good today. He’s excited to be on the ballot himself and feels optimistic for the president. “I’ve been really, really impressed by the President’s ground game in key states,” he says.

Gov. Markell also responds to tweets by Nate Silver from the New York Times, in which Silver said President Obama has a 91% chance of winning the Electoral College.

“We’ll know soon enough,” Markell says. “But I think in the end, I’m not much of a pundit, and I think the great thing about getting to Election Day is what people like me think aren’t really that important compared to what all the voters think. And in the end we all put our faith, we all put our future in their hands. And that's as it should be.”
