Ahead Of Second Debate, Michelle Obama Votes, Says President Will Rebound
The First Lady also spoke in Ohio on Monday night, the state which very much could decide whether Obama or Republican challenger Mitt Romney is the next president. At the event, she mentioned that she had just cast her absentee ballot.
"We want you all to vote early. We want you to think about voting early, whether it’s by mail, or in person, vote early,” she said. “Because if you vote early, then you can spend your time on election day getting everyone that you know out to vote."
The First Lady enjoys higher approval ratings than the president and has been used increasingly this month as part of the campaign. The president plans to vote Oct. 25 in Chicago.
"I think my husband has done a phenomenal job, not just in the debate but in the last three and a half years as president," she said on the show. "I am always so proud of what he's done because what you see in Barack is you see consistency."
Ryan Seacrest also interviewed her for "The View." She called herself "a working mom," and explained what she packed in her lunch on the campaign trail. Later, she rattled off the stars her daughters have met, including the Dalai Lama.
Democrats have sought to play up Tuesday's debate as an opportunity for the president to stop Romney's ascent in the polls since the first presidential debate two weeks ago. There only remains a few percent of undecided voters in key battleground states. Debate coverage begins throughout the TV and Internet at 6 p.m. PDT.
