Obama/Biden’s Final Pre-Election Rally: Out With a Whimper

The “enthusiasm gap” remains as gappy as ever less than 48 hours before voting begins:

CLEVELAND — The arena where President Obama and Vice President Biden are making their final appeal to Democrats to get out and vote in Tuesday’s midterm elections was far from capacity Sunday afternoon.

The crowd estimate stands at 8,000 in the arena that seats just over 13,000 and a couple thousand empty seats are visible above the stage where Obama and Biden rallied supporters on stage.

The event is the final one in a series of “Moving America Forward” rallies aimed at ginning up enthusiasm with the party’s largely deflated base ahead of Tuesday.

And that 8,000 “crowd estimate” comes from the DNC, so you know it includes area meter maids, janitorial staff and cockroaches.

The New York Times noticed the enthusiasm gap as well, but relayed the DNC spin:

Organizers noted the president was competing on a Sunday afternoon with church, football and Halloween.

Remember when you could pretty much experience all three at an Obama rally? Times have changed.

I don’t know where the other few thousand people were, except to say they weren’t at Bill Clinton’s stop in Columbus:
