Skip to comments.OBAMA'S CLEVELAND RALLY ATTENDANCE 20X LOWER THAN 2008
Posted on 11/03/2012 11:36:53 AM PDT by barmag25
Last night, in the cold and with long lines, 30,000 people showed up in Ohio to see Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan. That same day, Obama attracted a meager 2,800. But enthusiasm for President FailureTeleprompter can be judged by more than comparisons with Romney. In 2008, at his last stop in Cleveland, a Democrat stronghold, Obama attracted 80,000 people. This morning, at his last 2012 stop in that same city, Obama could only attract 4,000.
Team Obama will spin, as they have throughout the campaign, and tell their stenographers in the Corrupt Media that they've intentionally chosen smaller, more personal venues. But does anyone honestly believe that if President WaterParter could attract crowds even half as large as the ones we saw in 2008, he wouldn't?

I guess the thrill is gone?????
I want to watch MSNBC on election night, and see if anyone has a meltdown.
To be fair to Barry, most of his supporters got their government checks and benefits this week. They’re probably out shopping to “improve the economy” and “provide jobs for other Americans.”
20X lower = 5% of the turnout in ‘08
just saying, Obama phones can only go so far
No big noise from the race pimps, even the black preachers who usually are out screeching about racism and "just us," with their open hands quietly extended behind them to the party flunkies passing out the wads of small bills for "walkin' around."
Tomorrow I’m going to church and pray you are right. Can’t understand how anyone can support The One at this point. He’s a bigger failure than Carter...and we remember what happened in 1980.
May it be so again.
Are you suggesting.. a ...ah.. you know.. that his supporters are 47 years old?... nevermind.. :)
“President WaterParter” - love this. What a joke he truly is...
Well yeah, Obama just finished telling “folks” to vote Weds.
See www.twitchy.com for the most arithmatically challenged president ever.
Must be a lot of smart phones having alarms set for the big day.
Anyone? They all will!
Moreover, Obama said he would quit if he didn’t bring down the unemployment numbers to 6%-another lie!
“Union patsies know it’s over, even though a group of sheetmetal workers were caught stealing Romney signs in Toledo.”
Nice touch. They can’t win fair and square, and certainly not arguing in the town square, so they slink off and cheat, and steal people’s USC 1st Amendment rights...classy...

Thank you for posting the correct way this should read.
20X lower is an oxymoron IMO.
I guess it's not PC to say 1/20 or 5% of the amount.
I have a question for everyone. I keep wondering about this when I see these kinds of posts. Do popular incumbent presidents usually attract large crowds?
For all of us stressing about the hurricane impact, the polls, etc...... this tells you all you need to know about the state of the race.
And Friday, Obama had 2,800 in Columbus. Romney had 30,000 in West Chester.
Meltdown? No! I want to see the libs and especially the MSM do a full Jonestown on camera.
Can you bring a five-year-old to these rallies?
I cringe, whenever I see that dumbed-down formulation. Some “genius” editor once glommed onto the fact that most of his readers couldn’t handle fractions, or percentages. Solution: dumb down the math, to the point where it’s an oxymoron.
Another correct way of describing the turnout, would be “95% less than ...”. Saying “20X lower”, is the same as saying “2000% lower”. As 100% lower attendance is the same as saying “nobody showed up”, saying 20 times (or 2000%) less is complete nonsense.
Given that most journalists are innumerate, this asinine formulation won’t be going away soon. It’s a shame to see it in Breitbart.
You don’t need to see poll numbers to see the enthusiasm for Obama is GONE..people see him for what he is now..you could see the momentum for him in 2008, you don’t see that now..yeah he’s going through the motions and the Obama loving media will still prop him up saying all looks good but just look at the body language and you will see everything you need to see. They know the thrill is gone..he will get about 47 percent of the moocher vote, the rest will go to Romney
If the size of respective crowds is any indication - we’re looking at an even or R+1 advantage electorate.
We’re certainly not seeing anything on the ground like its related in the polls.
The polls are buffed up to make Obama look good! And that is why he will lose the election next week.
They’re all waiting to show up for the Obama/Springsteen/JayZ concert in Columbus on Monday.
I wonder how Chris Mathews will hold up on election night? He had major problems after Obama’s disasterous debate. How will he cope with losing the election????
Shiela Jackson Lee was being interviewed on CNN and she got flustered and said, ‘President Romney..er..president to be..er..president wanting to be’
BWA HA HA HAAAAAAAAAA
Anybody see that?
Dang I am worried... obama is really surging... man every single factoid in the news shows that obama is running away with this election. /s
After the Thrill is Gone
I took my two-year-old to the rally at Red Rocks. She had a blast!
I hope that he does a Hari-Kiri live during peak viewing hours.
Did he really say that? Oh goody. lol His "folks" will believe that.
It will be interesting to see what kind of crowd Romney draws at the IX Center in Cleveland tomorrow. I have no idea what the capacity of that building is, but it’s huge. Depends on how they set things up, I suppose.
I’ve been to a gun show or two in that place, along with a couple of car shows and boat shows. It’s roomy!
Cleveland Freepers, Ohio freepers, if you can get there tomorrow, do it! Show Obambi how it’s done!
There are always families at these events. BUT be forewarned, you are usually there, standing and/or doing nothing for 2 hours before the main event, and a good hour after. Kids can get bored, tired, cold. So prepare for that. No liquids, but you’d want to bring snacks and games, things to entertain. And be sure to dress warmly for the locale.
Chrissy will have a meltdown on national TV. He will then be off the air for a much needed vacation.
About a week after the election there will be a small news story on CNN about a “former news anchor” named Chris Matthews who tragically committed suicide. It will be reported as a sign of mass depression taking hold in the United States because of our corrupt election process, of course. Back to you Wolfe...
I'm not sure that answered my question. I get that you're being sarcastic and saying that the libs are saying that big crowds for Romney mean he's losing. But, I want to know what kinds of crowds a popular incumbent usually gets.
I’m with you...what in the world is “20x lower”??? You could say “one-twentieth” or, as you suggest, 5%.
Or maybe it’s this way. Today, 4,000 people show up. 20x 4,000 = 80,000. Does that mean 4,000 minus 80,000 showed up today? Maybe 76,000 really wanted to be there, but had toenails to clip and hair to wash.
Any way you put it, though, it is great news.
Stupid Headline Alert.
Twenty times X is 20X. So if the attendance were 20 times lower than before, attendance would be negative, which is probably impossible, even for Dimocrats. Would that mean everyone in attendance was dead, but there were 20 times as many of them? Or did a gigantic hole open up and a lot of people fell in? What the heck does 20 times lower mean?
If the numbers are accurate, then attendance is one-twentieth of the 2008 attendance, not 20 times lower.
Even conservatives can be stupid at math.
Only the most blithering libtard faithful are showing up to hear Obama ramble now.
clinton filled arenas... Bush drew 10’s of thousands.
Yes he did. Told ‘em today, “in four days”
For twitter comments
The emperor has no voters.
maybe he passed out all his Obamaphones already.
