Just 2 weeks before the citizens of the USA elects their next president, First Lady Michelle Obama wrote an open letter begging women to vote for her husband. A Gallup poll shows the president trailing behind GOP challenger Mitt Romney by a significant percentage margin (52-45).
But the Gallup poll is in question because Romney trails behind Obama in key states such as Iowa. Obama didn’t court women in the 2008 campaign for president, but he desperately needs women in his corner now. In her open letter Mrs. Obama wrote:
“I voted for him because I knew he was going to stand up for women like me – and our daughters, sisters, and mothers,” she wrote in a letter published in Elle magazine. “I’m proud of how far we have come. And I’m determined to help him keep moving forward.”
She went on to list five reasons to re-elect the president, including he is all about equal rights for women.
