Today on the show, we will take you live to the Athens and Madrid where mass anti-austerity demonstrations are taking place. In Greece, we saw protesters clash with police. In Madrid, tens of thousands poured out onto the streets to signal their frustration with the Spanish government’s pledge to make deep budget cuts.

We will also go live to New York for more on some of the most anticipated speeches of the day. Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Egyptian president Mohammed Morsy both addressed the general assembly hall in New York.

Nick Paton Walsh will bring us the latest on a twin bomb blast targeting the military’s headquarters in Damascus. This is the deadliest and most strategically important hit for the FSA since a bomb blast killed top security officials in the Syrian capital last July. All the while, Syrians continue to die every single day at an alarming rate. Today alone, activist networks report more than 200 Syrians were killed across the country.

There’s a new poll giving U.S. President Barack Obama a sizeable lead in key swing states Ohio and Florida. At this stage, Republican challenger Mitt Romney has to be thinking hard about what to do to help him rebound in states he knows he can’t win the presidency without in November. CNN’s Mark Preston joins me live from Washington to break down the last numbers.
