The Face of Failure: Only 500 People Show Up To See Mitt Romney In Ohio

Posted by   + Show Post

Remember when the right was claiming that Obama failed when he drew 14,000+ people to his Ohio rally? Today, Mitt Romney showed us what failure really is by drawing 500 people to his Ohio event.

According to Cleveland.com, “Before Romney began his town hall forum at Stamco Industries, Ohio Auditor Dave Yost dismissed the killing of al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden as an Obama accomplishment. A Romney backer, Yost told a crowd of more than 500 that giving the president credit for bin Laden’s death would “be like giving Ronald McDonald credit for the Big Mac you had for lunch. Everyone knows it’s the man working the griddle, not the man on TV.”

The Romney people called the crowd estimated at anywhere between 300-700, “great turnout.”

Let’s do a little comparison shall we?

Romney’s “great turnout” today:

Obama’s “empty arena” on Saturday:

Romney’s turnout fail from today. (Pic taken an hour before event started):

Obama’s “turnout fail” from Saturday. (Pic taken before the event started. Notice, there were more people at Obama’s event before it started than showed up in total for Romney).

Note to the right. If you are going to lie and try to make it sound like the tens of thousands of people who show up at an Obama event aren’t really there, you better have a candidate that can put butts in seats. Mitt Romney isn’t a draw. Obama might not have filled up an 18,000 seat arena, but Romney couldn’t fill up 1,000 chairs for a town hall meeting. The campaign claimed 700 people were there. The low end estimate was 300, and the truth is probably closer to the 500 that the media reported.

Mitt Romney’s crowd looks just like the crowds that showed up for John McCain’s events in 2008, except for the fact that McCain drew more people. The Republican nominee can’t fill up 1000 seats for a town hall in a swing state that the media claims is in play. This is not a good omen for the Republican Party. With the exception of the convention, enthusiasm for Romney may never be higher. Yet, his people are excited because 500 Obama haters showed up to hear him speak?

The fact that Romney couldn’t draw a crowd if you gave him charcoal and sketch pad is the reason why the Obama campaign is doing summersaults of joy every time someone on the right brings up attendance numbers. If you want to know which party has an enthusiasm problem, check out the pictures above. Tens of thousands turn out for Obama, less than a thousand for Romney.

When Obama draws 14,000+ it is a failure, but Romney draws 500 it is a great turnout. No wonder Republicans are so bad with our money, they can’t add.

 His target audience has jobs and families.

He wasn't pandering to college kids, like Obama...who's on the same level intellectually.

 Conservatives don't learn Math at Bible class .....and FOX certainly doesn't teach it..

Quoting trippyhippy:

14,000 vs 500?  I think even the right can see the difference in those numbers.  Well maybe not some. lol

Quoting toomanypoodles:

 Obama's turnout was a dismal failure. 

Did you post that one?

 President Obama won all demographics up to age 49....

and BTW, did you see the people at the Obama rally? hardly all college kids...

Teachers, nurses, fire fighters, police men and women....AND college students as well as COLLEGE GRADUATES

How rude for you to dismiss them,,,,

 LOL. I'm relived that the 49 + crowd is smarter than that. With age comes wisdom...and those folks VOTE. 

Showing up at a rally and getting to the polling place are two separate issues.

We'll see come November if the enthusiasm is still there....it's unlikely.

Did you hear he was heckled twice? hehehe The Hope is fading. aw.

 The lies you tell about yourself and what standard you hold yourself too are apparent by your mocking entire groups of people that are not like YOU. you belittle people that don't think, look and act like YOU.

as for getting to the polls, the YOUNG people did a great job last time..I am sure they will be well represented this time...

Congress is made up of MOSTLY OVER 50 crowd...see how good THEY are doing? not so much....so according to YOU they are the gold standard,,,,,epic fail

 LOL. I guess I learned it from you. Your responses have been nothing but ad hominem attacks and pure Alinsky bilge. Insults are your typical fallback since you're incapable of debating civilly.

Have a nice day, SAK. :-)

 I recall the rally I went to for President Bush back in 2000, before the convention.  This was in Portland, Oregon.  I'm trying to imagine a more liberal place than Portland, Oregon.  Nothing is coming to mind.  Oregon was never really in play for Bush.  Anyway, not only did he fill Memorial Coliseum to capacity, there were thousand of people outside who couldn't get in.  This was in a state he had no chance of winning.

Romney supporters can pretend that this -- and the gender gap, and the Latino gap, are no big deal.  But y'all are just lying to yourselves.
