Less Than 200 People Show up for Obama Event With Stevie Wonder
In Cleveland, Ohio no less.
The 2008 magic is gone folks. And I mean gone…
CLEVELAND, Ohio — 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.
Campaign volunteer Ken Johnson asked who in the crowd had voted early before introducing Wonder.
Nearly every hand went up.
Wonder took the stage at about 10:30 a.m.
“I do a song. You go vote. You come back. We do some more music,” he said before opening with “Sir Duke.”
No one left to vote after the first — or any — song.
A shuttle meant to take voters to the nearby Cuyahoga County Board of Elections left empty after Wonder’s final song, “Superstition.”
45 people show up at Catholics for Obama “rally” in Colorado.
