Democrat Heartache: Bill Clinton Can't Fill a High School Gym

There has been much talk of the enthusiasm gap between Democrats and Republicans in this years election. A prime example occurred in Detroit. Bill Clinton couldn't fill a high school gym. Former President Clinton is doing a tour through Michigan to try and fire up the base. It doesn't appear he is having much success.

The Detroit News reported:
But he began his speech just before 3 p.m. in a high school gym that was less than half full. The appearance was in support of gubernatorial candidate Virg Bernero, shown in most polls to be trailing Republican candidate Rick Snyder by 20 percentage points.

Shortly before Clinton took the stage, the Rev. Wendell Anthony, president of the Detroit branch of the NAACP, urged attendees to leave bleacher seats along one side of the gym and try to fill the area in front of the podium before Clinton began his address.
