(KCEN) -- The second presidential debate is only a day away and the candidates have been busy gearing up for round two.
Aides say President Obama will be more aggressive this time around and will challenge Mitt Romney on his proposals.
Romney in the meantime, was in Ohio trying to win voters over.
He's done 34 events in the battleground state since the Republican convention, 11 of those since his last debate.
His campaign says they've signed up thousands of new volunteers there.
Ohio Senator Rob Portman said, "He can probably win the presidency without Ohio, but I wouldn't want to take the risk. No Republican has."
Polls now show President Obama's lead in Ohio narrowed to just over one point, on average.
But Reuters/Ipsos reports the President's got a big advantage, 18 points, among early voters.
