Could tiny crowds and weak enthusiasm spell another Midwest upset of Hillary Clinton?
Bill was campaigning Wednesday in Columbus, Ohio and only a small number of people turned out to see him in a meeting room at the Ohio Education Association.
The Toledo Blade pegged the crowd at 300, but the photo casts doubt on that claim.
“Look, I think the president ought to make it. And if you nominate somebody qualified, which he will, the person ought to be confirmed,” Clinton said in a hoarse voice, according to the paper.
“But what you need to know is — not only have the Republicans promised not to do that, because they had a 5-4 majority that helped their policies — the next president, in all probability, will get one or two more appointments even if the president gets them confirmed. We cannot stand to have a Republican president, a Republican Congress, and a Republican Supreme Court.”
A recent poll shows Hillary Clinton with a 9-point lead over Bernie Sanders.
Several polls from Ohio’s neighbor to the north — Michigan — showed Clinton with double-digit leads over the socialist senator, only for him to win the state on Tuesday.
Video from NBC 4 shows additional crowd shots shows the crowd was nowhere near the reported 300, which could spell more trouble for Clinton during Ohio’s primary next week.
