Obama Attracting Smaller Crowds than McCain in ’08

by Eliana Johnson

Campaigning in Mentor, Ohio today, President Obama drew a crowd of 4,000. RNC research director Joe Pounder notes that, four years ago, John McCain drew a bigger ground to the same venue.

Fox News’ Ed Henry noticed the same thing. 

This appears to be something of a trend. Last night, Mitt Romney drew 30,000 to a Cincinnati rally, while 2,800 people showed up to see President Obama at the Franklin County fairgrounds.
