(NBC) - The race for the White House is back at full speed with just five days to go.

Mitt Romney went to Virginia, a swing state where polls show the race tied, and made his closing argument.

"If the president were to be re-elected, you're going to see high levels of unemployment continue and stalled wage growth - if any wage growth at all, just like we've seen over the last four years," he said.

The former governor's path to a win looks difficult.

In today's NBC/Marist poll, Romney is down by six points in Iowa, but closer in New Hampshire and Wisconsin.

President Obama went to Green Bay, back on the trail after suspending campaigning for Hurricane Sandy.

He made his closing argument.

"We know what change looks like, and what the Governor is offering sure ain't change. Giving more power back to the biggest banks isn't change. Leaving millions without health insurance isn't change," he argued.

New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, an independent who endorsed no candidate in 2008, endorsed President Obama Tuesday, citing the president's position on climate change, which Bloomberg tied back to Hurricane Sandy.
