Due to a rising unemployment rate and a lacking healthcare system, The United States have been struggling its way through the corona-pandemic.
As a result, the citizens of America have felt aban-doned by the political office led by Donald Trump. The feeling of abandonment has led to doubt and confusion when it comes to the 2020 election campaign.
Michelle Obama is spreading her message through her speech to a broad audience. In her speech she is targeting those, who have not yet decided whether to vote or not.
It is seen in the text l.125 “But this is not the time to withhold our votes in protest or play games with candidates who have no chance of winning.
We have got to vote like we did in 2008 and 2012.” This is also a reference to the 2016 election, where a lot of people chose not to vote.
The topic and context in Michelle Obama’s speech is the 2020 election campaign. She is in her speech trying to persuade non-voters to vote for Joe Biden instead of Donald Trump, who as she mentions in her speech
has failed to deliver what he promised. It is clear throughout the text, that Michelle Obama is talking in favor of Joe Biden.
