A Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll released Sunday showed the race tied, Obama and Romney each claiming the support of 47 percent of likely voters.
Never again will either man have the chance to reach an audience anywhere close to the likely viewership of around 60 million people. A particularly strong performance, or even a single memorable gaffe, could decide the outcome on Election Day.
Obama spent Saturday and Sunday at Camp David with no public events scheduled. Romney arrived in Florida on Friday and will remain there until the debate is over.
