President Obama will appear as a guest on The Late Show with David Letterman during a trip to New York on Tuesday, Sept. 18, a source tells National Journal.
Obama is scheduled to return to Letterman's show just a month after his wife, Michelle, made two Late Show appearances.
The president, locked in a close race for reelection, is seeking to capitalize on a yawning likability gap. An ABC News/Washington Post poll released on Tuesday showed that 61 percent of voters see Obama as the more friendly and likable person, compared to only 27 percent who think his rival, Mitt Romney, is more friendly and likable.
Obama last appeared on the Late Show in September 2009.
