Apparently even superstar Stevie Wonder can’t get people excited about voting for Obama in Ohio. Only 200 people showed up at a Saturday morning rally featuring the famed singer.
The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that singer Wonder announced from the stage that he’d sing a few songs, then the participants could board waiting vans that would take them to a local early voting place, and then he’d sing some more when they came back.
But, as the paper notes, no one went to vote. “No one left to vote after the first — or any — song.” The vans stayed idle.
On the other hand, Romney is generating throngs of people at his Ohio events.

Sure it’s anecdotal, but this observance of a lack of enthusiasm for Obama in Ohio has been reported for several days all across the state.
