- Story Text: U.S. President Barack Obama hit the campaign trail for his former secretary of state and Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire Monday (November 7), just one day before voters head to the polls. He told supporters that the state may be small, but it's important.
"After months of campaigning, after all the rallies, after all the adds, it all comes down to you," said Obama to a large crowd of supporters at the University of New Hampshire.
"You can elect a leader who's spend her life trying to move this country forward. Our first female president. A president who will be an example for our daughters and for our sons and send a signal there is no glass ceiling. Anybody who works hard and cares enough can achieve," said Obama. "It's not that often where you have the chance to shape history. The world is watching us right now."
Obama, who has been campaigning for his fellow Democrat, reiterated his claim that Republican presidential nominee, Donald Trump is not fit to be president.
"Donald Trump is uniquely unqualified to hold this job and the good news is New Hampshire, you are uniquely qualified to make sure he does not get this job," said Obama.
"New Hampshire you know it's a small state but it's an important state. There's some scenarios where Hillary doesn't win if she doesn't win New Hampshire. So it depends on you."
From New Hampshire, the U.S. president and First Lady Michelle Obama were scheduled to head to Philadelphia, for a final rally with Clinton before Election Day.
With hours to go before Americans vote, Clinton has about a 90 percent chance of defeating Trump in the race for the White House, according to the final Reuters/Ipsos States of the Nation project.
