The race to the White House ends in less than 48 hours and President Barack Obama and GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney are in their last sprint to the finish line.

Polls released on Friday about the 10 battleground states revealed that Romney gained nearly five points after the first debate and the president has gone up 0.7 percent.

In Michigan, numbers from polls showed that the state's 16 Electoral votes are leaning toward the president. According to a Rasmussen Report poll of likely voters in Michigan, 52 percent said they support the president, while 47 percent support Romney.

A new Public Policy Polling survery conducted in Michigan indicated that Obama leads Romney by eight points, 53 percent to 54 percent.

That same poll showed that 52 percent of the state's voters approve of Obama's presidential job and 46 percent favor Romney. The president now leads 60 to 38 among women, 86 to 8 among African Americans and 55 to 42 among voters younger than 65.

Romney leads Obama 53 to 44 among men, 50 to 48 among whites and 53 to 45 among seniors.

Four years ago Obama led his challenger John McCain by 16 points. 

According to a WeAskAmerica poll released on Thursday, Obama is leading Romney by seven points, 52 to 44 percent.

Polls in Wisconsin released Wednesday indicated that 51 percent of likely voters prefer Obama, while only 43 percent of likely voters support Romney.

According to CNN, recent polls on Monday indicate that the presidential candidates are tied at 49 percent. 

"I need you, Wisconsin -- to make sure their voices are heard; to make sure your voices are heard," the president said in Green Bay during his campaign stop on Friday. He added the following:

"We've come too far to turn back now.  We've come too far to let our hearts grow faint.  Now is the time to keep pushing forward -- to educate all our kids, and train all our workers; to create new jobs, and rebuild our infrastructure; to discover new sources of energy, to broaden opportunity, to grow our middle class, to restore our democracy, and to make sure that no matter who you are, or where you come from, or how you started out, you can work to achieve your American Dream."
