Obama Support Rally With Stevie Wonder Draws Under 200 People in Cleveland

It’s not because Barack Obama is yesterday’s news, no, it’s just, um, nobody knew about the event or something. At a college, no less.

Legendary performer Stevie Wonder this morning expressed his love for Cleveland during a get-out-the-vote rally at Cleveland State University.

His love went largely unrequited.

Fewer than 200 people showed up to watch Wonder perform a handful of his hits at the early voting event in support of President Barack Obama.

Most of the people had learned of the event just hours before the 9:30 a.m. start time. Some just happened to be in the area and followed the live music.

There’s an event at 9:30, so what did the geniuses claim happened?

Obama for America Ohio, which hosted the rally, informed its nearly 34,000 followers on Twitter about the event around 10 a.m.

“Perhaps it wasn’t advertised properly, but the people who are here are fired up,” said Bill Milhoan, of Mentor.

Update:  Headline fixed since I though Obama was there at first.

    Not a good sign for OfA in the final days before Nov. 6. A successful campaign would run like a well-oiled machine at this point. Instead the wheels appear to be coming off.
