The Florida 2012 Presidential Debate is moderated by CBS Chief Washington correspondent and moderator of CBS's Face the Nation, Bob Schieffer.

Across the U.S., Mitt Romney and Barack Obama are neck-and-neck in a statistical tie at 46.9% to 47.1% according to recent Real Clear Politics average of polls.  
However, the national poll does not indicate who will win the 2012 Presidential Election.  Instead, the Presidential race will be determined by the key battleground states of Florida, Ohio, and Virginia.

According to a Real Clear Politics average of polls, Romney leads Obama by 2.1% at 48.7% to 46.6% in Florida without a significant spread change during the last two weeks.  

Conversely, Obama leads Romney by 2.1% in Ohio at 48.1% to 46% without a significant spread change during that same time period.  The candidates are exactly tied in Virginia at 48% each with Romney recently trending upward as Obama trends downward slightly.

Romney's gain in the polls occurred after he won the first Presidential Debate due to Obama's lackluster performance.  The recent polling trend may not reflect momentum gained by Obama in the recent second debate due to the lag time of conducting and reporting polling results.
This final Presidential Debate could be the last opportunity for either candidate to gain his needed momentum in the Presidential swing states with only 2 weeks left until Election Day.
