"We’re going to have clarity tonight,” says David Plouffe, Obama's chief election strategist.

“Our sense is, we’re going to have clarity tonight,” says David Plouffe, President Barack Obama’s chief election strategist.Plouffe, architect of the president’s first election campaign and a senior adviser in the re-election effort, predicts a fairly even break of the few undecided voters today. He also expects that independent voters will break Obama’s way, though not in the percentages won in 2008.

In an appearance on MSNBC’s “Daily Rundown” today, Plouffe maintained that the president is holding leads in the key swing states of Ohio, Florida and Iowa, and that by sometime around midnight tonight the outcome of the 2012 presidential election should be clear.

Asked how the president refers to “the architect” of his first campaign these days, the author of “The Audacity to Win” replied: That will depend on the outcome of the vote tonight.
