    Welcome to CNN Radio News Day.

    Here are some of the stories we cover in today's edition:

    * President Obama gathered supporters in the East Room of the Whtie House this afternoon and told them he wants to get to work on the U.S. economy, and the 'fiscal cliff' that is approaching in 53 days. Unless a deal is struck between the President and Congress before January 1st, massive spending cuts and tax hikes will trigger. And the President wasted little time in revealing what he wants.

    "If we're serious about recuding the deficit we have to combine spending cuts with revenue and that means asking the wealthiest Americans to pay a little more in taxes," Mr. Obama said.

    * Syrian refugees continue to stream across the northern border into Turkey. Officials put the number at 8 thousand within the past 24 hours. Meanwhile Syrian rebel factions met this week in the gulf state of Quatar to talk strategy on possibly ousting Bashir Al-Asssad. But it's not an easy task says CNN's Mohammed Jamjoom.

    "it's starting to come under more international criticism because they say the leadership is out of touch, that most of the people that comprise the Syrian National Council haven't lived in Syria for years."

    * The data-rich exit polls that CNN and other networks pay for and rely on to make predicitions changed this year. That's mainly due to the fact that the way Americans vote is changing. For one, more voters are voting early says CNN polling director Keating Holland.

    "Once upon a time, all voters could be contacted on election day because all voters voted on Election Day."
