Obama Crowd Sizes 'Not Impressive'

Obama Crowd Sizes 'Not Impressive'

President Barack Obama today drew crowds of 2,600 in Green Bay, Wisconsin and 4,500 in Las Vegas, Nevada, a far cry from the nearly 80,000 people who showed up for a campaign rally of his during the last week of the 2008 campaign in Fairfax, Virginia. 

New York Times reporter Mark Landler said the crowd sizes were “Not impressive for the last week of a campaign.”

By all measures, enthusiasm for Obama — even among his base — has diminished considerably in 2012 from 2008, and Thursday’s crowd sizes at Obama’s rallies are more evidence of the enthusiasm gap Obama faces going into Election Day.
