Virginia has earned its reputation as a battleground state. Its voters will cast crucial ballots in the upcoming presidential election.
In Manassas, voters helped to elect Barack Obama four years ago, then sent a republican to the governor's mansion the following year.
So what are voters there thinking, two months before the election?
We visited Royal Cuts Barber Shop in old town Manassas. Definitely leaning Democrat there.
"I really think Obama's going to win again. For real," says barber Quinton Delaney.
"I don't believe in polls at all," says barber shop owner Charles Robinson. "Nobody calls me."
About the Republican presidential nominee's speech in Tampa Thursday night, Robinson says "He just came out, Mitt Romney just came out and said 'I'm going to produce 12 million jobs when I'm in office.' He didn't say how."
"Nobody's going to change the economy in four years because it's impossible," adds Mr. Delaney.
Waiting for a haircut was Dakota Page. "I am a registered republican but I like to consider myself as someone who actually looks around and listens to everybody, what they have to say, both sides."
Out on the streets of Manassas, you will find supporters for both candidates.
"Right now I don't see that you have any other choice," says Mark Miller. "I mean we've got to make some changes. Good, bad or indifferent. We've got to do something different. What we've got is not working so even if you don't like him you've got to vote for him. Romney? Yes sir."
"I'm usually a republican," says Melissa Ortiz. "But this year I think I'm going to go democrat. Just because I'm usually go for the morals and stuff like that, but I know that Romney's not really supporting Latinos and I have a lot of families that are Latino so I think I'm going to go with Obama this year."
The night before he was elected president in 2008, Barack Obama's last campaign rally was in Manassas.
The following year, voters in the city - by a wide margin - helped elect republican Bob McDonnell governor.
"I think it was interesting that within a year the whole political climate changed," says Nancy King.
"A lot of Tea Partiers are in Manassas, says Nancy Giannasi, who is not one of them. "Oh I'll be voting democrat. All the way."
And yet many here remain undecided.
"I'm so torn between both of them," says Hannah Thomas. When asked who she thinks she'll vote for, she says: "I'm not sure yet."
"This is my first time voting," says Adam Coolbaugh. "This is a decisive time so after all the debates, after everything, I'm going to see which way I'm leaning toward. But currently, I'm in the middle. So just like Virginia, I'm torn right in the middle."
