Days to Election Day: 12

Number of Americans who have already voted: > 40 million

Among those who already voted: Former Republican presidential nominee and now-Utah Sen. Mitt Romney.

Who did Romney vote for? Not President Donald Trump.

OK, then who? "That's something I'm keeping private at this stage."

Note: Romney's the only GOP senator who voted to remove the President from office during the impeachment trial.

New lashing out from Trump: The President unloaded Tuesday night and into Wednesday, as usual, on his perceived enemies. There's a new one: Lesley Stahl of CBS' "60 Minutes."

He walked out on an interview with her before doing a town hall on Fox News. He's posted pictures of Stahl just after their interview, and threatened to release the interview early.

The biggest binder you've ever seen. There are also photos put out by the White House of press secretary Kayleigh McEnany handing Stahl a massive binder of health care accomplishments. Given Trump has not provided a concrete health care plan, I'd love to see what's inside.

Speaking of Obama: Barack Obama joined the campaign trail for his former vice president and torched Trump.

"He hasn't shown any interest in doing the work or helping anybody but himself and his friends or treating the presidency like a reality show that he can use to get attention. And by the way, even then his TV ratings are down. So you know that upsets him," the former President said in Philadelphia.

Deadline Thursday: Last day to request an absentee ballot in Indiana.

Starting Thursday: Early voting in West Virginia.

New CNN/SSRS polls: Biden up in Pennsylvania; jump ball in Florida. Here are the key points from CNN polling director Jennifer Agiesta:

Sizable minorities of voters in both states say they have already voted.

Early voters break heavily for Democratic nominee Joe Biden in both states.

People who haven't voted yet break in Trump's favor, but not by as large a margin.

Voters trust Biden more on key issues like Covid, except the economy, where Trump is stronger in Florida and even in Pennsylvania.

Enthusiasm about voting is higher among Trump's supporters.

Florida stakes: 29 electoral votes

Polling shows: Biden at 50%, Trump at 46%

(That's right at the poll's margin of sampling error, meaning there is no clear leader in the survey.)

Pennsylvania stakes: 20 electoral votes

Polling shows: Biden at 53%, Trump at 43%

2020's bellwether is North Carolina -- Everyone agrees the results from Rust Belt states like Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Michigan could take a very long time to count. Here's a map that shows why.

CNN's Harry Enten writes that if Biden wins North Carolina, that would dispense with a lot of the drama. We shall see.
