President Barack Obama enters the final hours of the 2012 presidential campaign with an edge in the hunt for the 270 electoral votes needed to win.

ABC News says President Obama is leading by 31 electoral votes over Mitt Romney.

But, the race is remarkably close in at least six states that could go either way, giving Republican Mitt Romney hope that he can pull off a come-from-behind victory.

That being said, does the popular vote even matter?

Should the electoral college be abolished or should it be reformed?
