Skip to comments.Few knew about Stevie Wonder appearance for Obama at Cleveland State University on Saturday

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."

"Perhaps it wasn't advertised properly, but the people who are here are fired up," said Bill Milhoan, of Mentor.
(All 200 of them)
How can Team Obama suggest they have a great “ground game” in OH if they can’t even properly notify their partisans of a rally WITH STEVIE WONDER no less.
This when Romney is getting 10s of 1000s at his rallies in the same state.
Smallest Stevie Wonder crowd evah! LOL!

Even a blind man could see that the wheels are coming off.
