Bowling Green, Ohio (Indiana’s NewsCenter) – President Obama was on the campaign trail Wednesday and Jeff Neumeyer was there to hear what our Commander in Chief had to say.

With hundreds of students and supporters in the crowd at Bowling Green State University, the President chastised his opponent Mitt Romney claiming he wants to fix the economy by giving wealthy Americans a tax break.

Mr. Obama promises that in his second term the economy will be fixed from the middle-out, not the top-down.

“Top-down economics never works. The country doesn’t succeed when only the rich get richer. We succeed when the Middle Class gets bigger. When more people have a chance,” says President Obama.

Mitt Romney spent the day in Ohio as well, telling voters in Columbus, Cleveland and Toledo that a lagging economy and a growing debt proved that the country can not endure another four years of Obama as President.

A new ABC political poll suggests that Ohio isn’t going to be a toss-up but leans towards the Democrats.

Some Obama supporters at his Bowling Green event want to see more from the President.

Elbert Stewart from Sylvania, Ohio says, “There’s peaks and valleys, there’s big peaks and valleys. Hopefully he’ll get things on track and we’ll be able to work our way out of this thing.”

Geri Nagy from Toledo says, “Regardless of what you think, we’re still looking at one of the Presidents of the United States and get to hear him speak. Not everybody gets that opportunity.”

Obama: “If we spend another five trillion dollars on tax cuts, which favors the very wealthiest… (Crowd) Boo! (Obama) Don’t boo, vote!”

A number of times during the BG event President Obama pleaded with the audience to register to vote by the October 9th deadline and to vote early starting October 2nd.
