CHICAGO, Nov. 5 (Xinhua) -- Just one day before the U.S. presidential election, voters of Chicago, the hometown of incumbent President barack Obama, are still not so affirmative about their choice.

However, Hispanic American Pamela Fabre, a first time voter, said she was sure her choice, President Obama, will win.

Fabre told Xinhua that she thinks there's been a big change in the last four years. "I'm with Obama because he helps lift up big companies like the car companies that are on edge of bankruptcy, and he wants to have the Dream Act." Many of her fellow university students also supported Obama, she added.

Young voters are a crucial voting block for the president in 2008, and the Obama campaign hopes they will be motivated to post a strong turnout on the Election Day Tuesday.

Obama's supporter Darryl Daniels said he was actually more excited for this election than the one four years ago, as he thought it represented a more substantial reflection on presidential leadership.

"I'm actually more enthusiastic about this election than last election, because I felt last election was more of an election where you have this new voice that's bringing about change and things of that nature -- the right things that the American public wanted and needed to hear at that time because of the floundering economy," Daniels told Xinhua.
