US election: Huw Edwards samples opinion in Welsh corner

5 November 2012 Last updated at 21:01 GMT

BBC News presenter Huw Edwards has been to the pivotal state of Ohio, which could deliver the keys to the White House when the votes are counted on Tuesday night.

He visited the small community of Oak Hill, Jackson County, a village settled by Welsh migrants in the early nineteenth century, including some of his own ancestors.

Huw met some of today's Edwardses and explored the political landscape on the eve of the closest presidential election in recent years.
