SMU Students Analyze the 2012 Presidential Election

Michelle Obama in Iowa City Monday

Leave a comment

Michelle Obama was recently at a rally in Iowa City on Monday, appealing to women voters. She echoed the president’s recent message to women in an attempt to energize Obama’s female base.

The First Lady was welcomed by a large, boisterous crowd that often interrupted her, chanting “Four more years.”

Mrs. Obama spent the majority of her time speaking focused on issues of women’s rights as well as voting early.

Since the stark lead President Obama had with women has slowly slipped from his grip, the Obama campaign is smart to use Michelle as much as possible in a state like Iowa, where a few more female voters could make all the difference.
