Obama rallies voter support

Obama tries to convince sceptical voters that efforts to improve their lives under sluggish economy are slow but steady.


    With the US mid-term polls only more than three weeks away, US president, Barack Obama, has called on members of his Democratic party to revive the energy and the passion that carried him to the White House during his successful 2008 election campaign.

    But the sluggish economy and the costly wars in Afghanistan and Iraq are making his bid uneasy. Opinion polls show that voters are sceptical of his administration, despite reassurances. As a result, Obama's party might lose control of both chambers of the US Congress.
