WMDT 47 News - What kind of affect can a storm of this magnitude have on the election?

"In this kind of situation, the advantage would be on the President, because he is the President - he has responsibility to be responsive to natural disasters. So the spotlight will naturally be on the President. So Romney really at this point is trying to stay relevant," he said.
On the other hand , most of the states hit by Sandy are blue, typically going to the Democratic candidate, and with power outages, that could mean less votes for the President.
