      Tonight is round two in the race for the White House debates. Tonight it's Paul Ryan versus VP Joe Biden. Should be exciting for us and for viewers. We'll talk to several guests about what we can expect and hear from our reporters on the ground in Danville, Kentucky where tonight's debate goes down.

      President Obama is campaigning today in Miami. Governor Mitt Romney is in North Carolina.

      Lots of new poll numbers to tell you about.

      New WSJ/Marist/NBC News polls show Mitt Romney gaining ground in three battleground states: Ohio, Virginia and Florida.

      Romney also clocking some gains in new NYT/Quinnipiac University/CBS polling though President Obama retains a lead in Wisconsin, Colorado and Virginia.

      New Fox News polling suggests Mister Romney gaining ground with independents and now leading President Obama in a head-to- head matchup by one point.

      The White House is hoping the VP debate will change the message which has been Obama's weak debate performance and halt some of the momentum of the Romney campaign.

      Nearly half those polled say they don't like the President's handling of the attack on Americans in Libya. It's been a month since the terror attack on a U.S. compound in Benghazi, Libya killed four Americans.

      Catherine Herridge and James Rosen reporting today on the fallout from those Congressional hearings yesterday into the terror attack in Libya.
