President Barack Obama is set to spend the final day of the 2016 electoral season stumping for Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton across three key battleground states, according to a Monday report by the Associated Press.

Obama will visit Michigan, North Carolina, and New Hampshire, all states in which Clinton held large leads only a few weeks ago. Clinton held as much as a 15-point lead in New Hampshire, according to a WMUR/UNH poll published Oct. 18.

Clinton also enjoyed an 8-point lead in North Carolina, according to a New York Times poll published Oct. 24, and a 12-point lead in a local Fox News poll published Oct. 19.

Obama will then end the day in Pennsylvania, another state that Republican nominee Donald Trump managed to put in play with his speeches in the vast rural parts of the state. Clinton is expected to do well in the city of Philadelphia, but voter turnout among Democrats in the city will make all the difference in who wins the highly contested state.
