Ohio: Stevie Wonder Obama Rally Draws Less Than 200

Ohio: Stevie Wonder Obama Rally Draws Less Than 200

Four and a half years ago at a primary campaign rally for Barack Obama, Stevie Wonder made headlines when he sang this major scale with Michelle Obama for a packed house at UCLA (watch until the end):

Today, the “Superstition” singer performed at an Obama get-out-the-vote rally on another college campus, but the atmosphere was slightly less electric.  From the Cleveland Plain Dealer:

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.

And not all of the less-than-200 were there because of Barack Obama.  As one attendee told the Plain Dealer, “How do you pass up a chance to see Stevie Wonder?” 

What a difference a failed administration makes.
