ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Some students at Albany State University listened closely to the President's speech Wednesday night.

Many young voters especially African Americans, were inspired by Mr. Obama's campaign and were thrilled when he took office last year.

They tell us they still strongly believe in the President though his support among some other American's is waning.

"Rome wasn't built in a day we have to give Barack time; we have to give everyone working in his office time and be patient. You can't just get healthcare like that, the economy is not going to change with the snap of a finger, we have to be patient and give him time," Nkechi Ndukwe, ASU Student. 

Nkechi Ndukwe told us she and many of her classmates remain interested and engaged in politics and inspired by the President.
