In this Oct. 19, 2012, photo, Ray Arvin, front, and his wife, Candice talk to an Associated Press reporter inside their their home in Charlotte, N.C. Romney supporter, Arvin used to own a small business with five employees, selling equipment to power companies, but he went out of business in 2009. He’s now a salesman for another equipment company. Polls consistently find that the economy is the top concern of voters, and Romney tends to get an edge over Obama when people are asked who might do better with it. Whether that truly drives how Americans vote is a crucial question for Election Day. (AP Photo/Robert Ray)
