President Barack Obama is striving to win over women at the polls.
Recent surveys have shown the support for President Obama has dwindled among women tightening the gap between him and Republican nominee Mitt Romney.
A USA Today-Gallup survey found that Obama and Romney are tied at 48 percent among women voters in battleground states. This finding was also mirrored in a recent Pew poll with Obama losing his 18 point lead over Romney tying them at 47 percent.
In comparison to the days leading up to the first debate, neither campaign spoke heavily on their candidate’s expected performance in detail. However, Obama’s campaign did promise a more aggressive approach to the second debate.
“You should expect that [Obama’s] going to be firm but respectful in correcting the record and the times we expect Mitt Romney will hide from and distort his own policies, said Jen Psaki, a campaign spokeswoman. “He’s energized and I expect he will also be making a passionate case.”
In preparation for the debate, President Obama took in a morning workout as well as a last minute prep session with his campaign debate team.
