ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION STORY: Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan voted in his hometown of Janesville, Wisconsin on Tuesday (November 06). Ryan's home state is one of a handful of states whose victor is likely to determine the winner of the presidential campaign. Obama and Romney were essentially tied on the eve of Election Day, but the Democrat has a slight edge in some of the pivotal states where the election will be decided, according to Reuters/Ipsos polling released on Monday (November 05). Nationally, 48 percent of likely voters surveyed said they supported Democrat Obama and 46 percent backed Romney, a former Massachusetts governor, polling showed. Ryan had the rare distinction of voting for himself twice. Ryan also is on the ballot for reelection to Congress as well.
