She added that she hopes Mr. Obama focuses in a second term on “women’s reproductive rights.”

The Obama campaign is trying at this late date to remind voters of the president’s achievements. Campaign manager Jim Messina sent an email to supporters over the weekend titled “What has Obama done in your town?” It provides a search engine that allows a user to type in a ZIP code — for example, a resident of Akron, Ohio, where Mr. Obama will campaign on Tuesday, is informed that the president’s health care law ensured that “3,604 uninsured young adults in Summit County now [are] covered by their parents’ insurance.”

At campaign rallies, some of the president’s supporters will say grudgingly if pressed that Mr. Obama hasn’t put a dent in some of the major challenges facing the nation.

“It’s true that he hasn’t followed through on all of his promises,” said Keaghan Dunn-Rhodes, 18, a high school senior in Denver. “I definitely think he should have cut the deficit.

“But I don’t think that’s a reason to doubt him. I think he has a plan, and I think that he knows what he’s doing. I don’t think that it’s a lost cause.”

The president, of course, reminds audiences on the campaign trail of the promises from four years ago that he has kept.

“I told you we’d end the war in Iraq. We ended it,” he said in Denver. “I said we’d end the war in Afghanistan — we are. I said we’d refocus on the terrorists who actually attacked us on 9/11 — and now we’ve got a new tower rising above the New York skyline, and al Qaeda is on the path to defeat; Osama bin Laden is dead; our heroes are coming home. I’ve kept those promises.”

He added: “I promised to cut taxes for middle-class families and small businesses — and we have. I promised to end taxpayer-funded Wall Street bailouts for good — and we did. I promised to repeal ‘don’t ask, don’t tell,’ and today you can’t be kicked out of the military because of who you are and who you love.”

Mr. Obama also promised in 2008 to allow Bush-era tax cuts to expire for families earning more than $250,000. But as president, he found that he had to compromise with Republicans in Congress to prevent raising taxes on most Americans. His supporters aren’t holding it against him.

“He definitely kept his promises,” said Mimi Eshetu of Denver, an airline employee who noted that the unemployment rate has fallen from 10 percent in October 2009 to 7.8 percent last month.
