Joe Biden is supposedly the Democrat front runner for president, but less than 100 people turned out to see him in Iowa today.
Biden was holding a town hall meeting in Ottumwa, and according to a photo of the crowd, only 98 people turned out.
Look at this photo from Des Moines Register reporter Stephen Gruber-Miller via Twitter:
The photo shows a very tiny, but full, room at the Hotel Ottumwa.
During the event, Washington Post reporter Cleve R. Wootson, Jr. says a protester interrupted Biden to talk about medical errors, and Biden gave the disruptor–who was wearing a “Death By Medicine” t-shirt–the microphone.

“Make it quick,” Biden told the man.
Tom Vilsack praised Biden’s move, claiming it shows he has “empathy.”
Biden played to a similarly small crowd in Creston tonight:
