WASHINGTON, D.C. -- With only three days left before the election, it's anybody's guess who will win the presidential race.

Polls are split on which candidate voters prefer. Some polls are dead even.

Eighteenth District Congressman Aaron Schock (R - Illinois) has been involved in Republican Mitt Romney's campaign and thinks the race might be decided by one state: Ohio.

"The fact that he's now winning Florida means that the focus shifts to Ohio," said Schock. "If he wins Ohio, then I think Mitt Romney is our next president. If Mitt loses Ohio then he's got to win a slew of other states. States like Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Iowa, Colorado; it becomes a little bit more difficult to piece it together."

The economy will no doubt influence many voters, as President Obama seeks re-election with the nation's highest unemployment rate under an incumbent since Franklin Roosevelt.
