Stevie Wonder does GOTV rally for Obama; fewer than 200 show up...

Almost everyone indicated they had already voted anyway.  If the purpose was getting out the vote, it failed miserably. I am beginning to wonder if Obama will have any supporters left to go to the polls on election day.
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.
Most of the people had learned of the event just hours before the 9:30 a.m. start time. Some just happened to be in the area and followed the live music.
Campaign volunteer Ken Johnson asked who in the crowd had voted early before introducing Wonder.
Nearly every hand went up.
