On the ground in Virginia.
Campaigning in the US is so different to the way we do it in the UK, which is something we are learning at every turn.
The greatest pleasure so far has been a day of canvassing in Henrico County, Virginia, knocking on doors and speaking to the voters.
It is only in the last 30 years or so that the Democrats have made any headway here, but if the good folk I spoke to yesterday are a true indication, then Obama has overwhelming support here.
At the moment Obama has a small lead in the polls in Virginia, but it is within the margin for error. The demographics are also in the Democrats favour.
