Biden Stumps In Muscatine

Updated:

The Vice President is in Iowa stumping to keep his boss, President Obama in the White House.

Joe Biden wants Iowans to vote as early as possible.

To help keep Iowa in the democratic column.

Biden toned down the sharpness of his attacks aimed at the Romney campaign. Choosing instead to highlight the differences between the two presidential candidates.

"They have a fundamentally different view of how to lead America than we do, and a fundamentally different value set," says Biden.

The message resonates with his supporters.

"I thought he had a positive message and was very good, very good," says Annette Steffens.

She's already decided to cast another ballot for the president. Because she agrees with the Democrats' stance on women's issues. Her daughter Ashley says those issues are important to her as well. And she says politics means more to her now than in the past.

"I do now, I never really used to care, but I do now that I'm older and I have a daughter, a lot of things matter," says Ashley Shultheis.

She says seeing this campaign stop in person helped her cut through the haze of attack advertising. And she believes it can help sway independents.

"I just think they're scared they don't really know who to believe," says Shultheis

"The tragedy with Hurricane Sandy has perhaps shown some independents, the president works well with members of the opposite party," says Larry Clausen.

He believes bipartisanship is important to Iowa voters. Because the state is familiar with disasters.

"We've been flooded here, we've had damage."

Polls show the presidential race remains tight across the swing states. Leaving the candidates reaching for every remaining vote they can get.
