COLUMBUS, OH (WOIO) - President Obama met with a Columbus, Ohio family Wednesday, who got some help from the economic stimulus plan.

But it's going to take a lot more convincing to get voters to believe the plan will lift America out of it's economic woes.

President Obama is pushing his economic plans everywhere from high-dollar

fundraiser's -- to this Ohio backyard.He met with people in a Columbus neighborhood -- on the last day of a multi-state campaign-style swing across the country -- aimed at selling his plan to fix the nation's economic problems.

The President may have a tough time making that argument.  A new Associated Press poll shows -- 61-percent of voters think the economy has stayed the same or gotten worse - since he took office.

Now, he's asking for patience. But the Obama administration is running short on time.  The President has less than 3 months to convince voters he has a plan to revive the sagging economy."

In November a third of the U-S senate -- and 'every' seat in the House of Representatives is up for grabs.  The White House is fighting hard to help Democrats stay in power -- so the President can advance his agenda.  His top aides are taking no chances.

They've paired his speeches on the economy -- with some big fundraiser's. President Obama has raised millions of dollars this week for Democratic candidates -- facing tough races in the fall.
