Students and Hispanics Lose That Obama-loving Feeling

By
September 22, 2012

The BuzzFeed headline focuses on Romney’s alleged packing of a recent Univision forum. Given the theme of election 2008, particularly how Hispanics and college students were simply wild about Barry, I think this from much further down in the story is worthy of being the lede in a 2012 campaign report.

Obama’s campaign, meanwhile, stuck to the original parameters and allowed a large chunk of the tickets to be distributed to interested students on campus. The result was a quiet, well-behaved crowd — and a lot of no-shows. Minutes before Obama’s forum was to begin, producers began frantically directing university staff and volunteers to sit in the empty seats. Salinas said both candidates ultimately had partisan crowds at their forums, but that Romney’s non-student activists ignored instructions to hold their applause.

Awww. Shame on them for showing such bias!

    A little more on this Dan. Went to see both days (UM alumni). Obama’s moment of truth however was worth the trip. He was visibly off his teleprompter. Wrote it up here fwiw.
