NASHUA, New Hampshire (AFP) - United States President Barack Obama, campaigning in tiny New Hampshire on Saturday, slammed his Republican rival Mitt Romney's record as governor of neighboring Massachusetts, saying he is a man voters can't trust.

Just 10 days out from the Nov 6 presidential election, Mr Obama was in the small US state for the second time in two weeks because it is the only one in the north-east where the two White House contenders are running neck and neck.

Though it has just four of the 538 electoral college votes, which ultimately decide the winner, Mr Obama was scrambling to lock in as many as possible as polls showed a tight race.

Mr Romney "has been out here making a lot of last-minute promises lately," Mr Obama told a crowd of 8,500 at a school in Nashua.
