President Barack Obama said Saturday night he’s become “a prop” in the campaign and that it’s now up to his supporters to see the election through on Tuesday.

“I was backstage with David Plouffe — some of you guys know he’s, you know, sort of a mastermind of campaign organization. We were talking about how, as the campaign goes on, we become less relevant,” Obama said during a rally in Bristow, Va. “I’m sort of a prop in the campaign. He’s just bothering a bunch of folks calling, asking what’s going on. You know but the power, the power’s not with us anymore. The planning, everything we do, it doesn’t matter because now it’s all up to you.”
