'SNL' Election Special: President Obama Courts Ohio Voters

The second and final "Saturday Night Live" election special kicked off with another President Obama cold open courtesy of new presidential impersonator Jay Pharoah.

The satirical sketch began with a live C-Span conference at an Ohio rally where President Obama searched for constituents who had better jobs than they did before 2008. As you might have guessed, most of the rally-goers he interviews are no better off than they were four years ago. We're talking about a raccoon salesman, a woman who works at an Apple store (Like, regular apples, not computers) and a guy who won a lot of money at in a lawsuit a few years ago.

Even Obama has a feeling that things haven't improved during his term, joking that his appearance has gone "from hip-hop star to jazz musician."

"I guess black do crack," he jokes.
