President Barack Obama is reminding college students returning to class that they hold a unique power to determine the election.

Obama on Tuesday told about 13,000 people gathered on the campus of Colorado State University, he and the nation are counting on college students.

In Colorado and Iowa, Obama told the students that they had much at stake in the Nov. 6 presidential election. He panned Republican rival Mitt Romney as a candidate without a plan to move the country forward.

Four years ago, Obama won two-thirds of the vote among 18- to 29-year-olds, compared with just 32 percent for his Republican opponent, Sen. John McCain, according to exit polls.

Polls suggest he's leading Romney with college-age voters in this year's race.
