BOSTON (WWLP) - After more than a year of campaigning and talking about it, it all comes down to tonight. Voters across the country are voting on who they would like to see live in the White House for the next four years.
Will President Barack Obama continue what he has started, or will Massachusetts former governor Mitt Romney walk away as President-elect?
The people gathering at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center in South Boston Tuesday night are Romney supporters, hoping they have something to celebrate.
Media from all over the world are gathering in this huge hall, where Republicans hope that Romney will be giving a victory speech.
Romney had been trailing the President for much of the election, and the race has tightened only after the presidential debates. Still, Romney spokesperson Kyle Downey says the latest polling data has him optimistic.
“The latest battleground poll conducted by Politico and George Washington University, a highly-respected bipartisan poll, shows the race tight at 47-47. But more importantly, it shows Governor Romney beating Barack Obama among independent voters by 15 points, so, very crucial number there," Downey said.
Millions have yet to vote, and right now, all the supporters on both sides can do is wait for polls to close at 8:00 P.M.
22News reporter Laura Hutchinson is in Boston at Romney Headquarters, and 22News will be live throughout the night as those early numbers start to come in, and as we learn who our next President is.
