But the latest polls in Tennessee show it tightening up there's one -- by a firm called we ask America that's got Mitt Romney ahead by one point.
And Romney showed some strength in Tennessee four years ago him the relatively affluent suburban counties that ring around Nashville -- most nationals Davidson county.

Part of that was mistakes.
