NEW DELHI — Followed by the politics of home, President Barack Obama on Sunday acknowledged that he must make some "mid-course corrections" if he is to win over a frustrated electorate and work with resurgent Republicans.

On the second of three days he is spending in India, Obama arrived in New Delhi on Sunday afternoon with his wife, Michelle. Among the greeters at the airport were Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, who apparently broke the normally rigid rules of protocol by making the trip to personally welcome Obama to the Indian capital.

Earlier in the day while in Mumbai, Obama appeared before college students eager to question him. He told one that the midterm elections back home reflected the "right, obligation and duty" of the voters to express their unhappiness with the state of US affairs by voting out many incumbents, the majority of whom are Democrats like Obama.

Obama said he will not change his determination to move the US forward by investing in education, infrastructure and clean energy despite mounting pressure in Washington to cut spending. But he said, without elaborating, that the election "requires me to make some midcourse corrections and adjustments."
