President Obama told supporters at a campaign event in New York City Monday night that, if the election were held today, he would win.

“So the upshot is if the election were held today, I think it would be close, but I think we’d win,” Obama said.

Obama made the remarks at a fundraising event at the NoMad Hotel in New York City.

He reminded the audience that the nation is recovering from “the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression.”
