US Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney arrives at a rally with his wife Ann at George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia, November 5, 2012. After a grueling 18-month battle, the final US campaign day arrived for President Barack Obama and Republican rival Mitt Romney, two men on a collision course for the world's top job. The candidates have attended hundreds of rallies, fundraisers and town halls, spent literally billions on attack ads, ground games, and get out the vote efforts, and squared off in three intense debates.

It’s no secret that Jay Cutler shuns media attention at almost every turn and, by most accounts, would be characterized as a ‘‘private person.’’ That’s why it was surprising when the Bears quarterback agreed to appear regularly on ESPN-1000’s ‘‘Waddle & Silvy’’ this season.

Credit the Bears’ 7-1 start or the laid-back approach of the show, but Cutler really seems to have found his comfort zone.

In fact, on Monday he revealed one of his innermost beliefs — his choice for president.

When pressed by co-host Tom Waddle for his vote, Cutler said, ‘‘That’s a touchy subject. I have been following the debates and everything. I do live in Tennessee. I’m voting for Mitt [Romney] this election season.’’

Cutler quickly turned the question on his hosts. Waddle was in agreement with Cutler, while co-host Marc Silverman said, ‘‘I’m voting for the president.’’
