President Obama is so invested in his campaign’s early voting strategy that he became the first sitting president to cast a ballot before election day. In case you missed the subtlety of the First Lady telling you to “vote early” on Jimmy Kimmel Live, the president has started doing his stump speech in front of a giant, fluorescent “Vote Early” sign. It’s basically his campaign motto.
And it’s not working. According to Gallup’s latest, Romney leads Obama among voters who have already cast their ballots:
I don’t do cocky over here in the Crabitat, not in an election this important. I want this to be a blowout, I hope sincerely it will be so. But. This is not the time to let up even a tiny bit. We all have to do whatever we can to earn this victory.
Seven more days. We have got to do this.
