Per FoxNews, the indoor facility has a MAX capacity of 15,000.

lol

Down significantly from the supposed 60-70,000 who might have been seated [if they could bus in enough] at the outdoor stadium.

LMAO! They couldn’t fill 70,000 seats to fill that stadium! HAHAHA! LOSER!

Says, “They share the diappointment of over 60,000 people.”
Yeah, I believe that!
FUBO!

Weather.com shows only small percent of isolated storms. I’m sure that will be updated very soon to show tornado watches in effect for the Charlotte area tonite. It wouldn’t surprise me at this point.

But, as just noted....the Obama team has successfully gathered alllllll of those email addresses and cell phone numbers to spam them like crazy, begging for donations.

They never intended to have the speech in that stadium.

This could get real interesting...

What if 20,000 more people show up with their free tickets demanding to be let in?

Between OWS and a bunch of angry ticket holders you may have the right mix for a riot.

In a city of 800,000 people and a metro area of nearly 2 million, Obama cannot even fill a 70,000 seat stadium with willing spectators. I think they realized it would have taken way too many buses and a lot of free sandwiches and malt liquor to pack the stadium. Would have been a security nightmare.

Reminds of the the scene in Dickens' Christmas Carol where businessmen only agree to go to Scrooge's funeral if a lunch is provided.

I checked the Charlotte weather yesterday and it had no showers predicted for Thursday. They better hope it does rain or else they will really look like buffoons.

Part of the sissy-fication of the nation - yeah the GOP is just as guilty.

I seem to recall Pope John Paul II speaking at Giant Stadium in a torrential downpour. Turned it into quite an uplifting moment.

But then again, the Pope allowed God onto his platform.

yep, they can’t fill it. if they had enough asses for the seats they would have figured a way to do make sure it happened in the stadium. they were trying to go for what happened four years ago.

Remember how Obama used the weather service in his discussion of the budget. We would not know the weather as well blah, blah if the budget is cut.

They cannot even fill the auditorium. It seemed less than half full yesterday at the opening of the convention. Lots of empty seats on the sides.

I think the GOP should have held rallies all over the country on the same night, linked via satellite. They could have filled SEVERAL satellites this year.

The only weather threat is whether there will be 40,000 empty seats or 50,000.

If they had Sarah Palin speak they could fill the stadium with just 24 hours notice.

Yeah, in 2008 the obamazombies would have stood in the rain chanting “obama, obama, obama” and “yes we can”. Chris Matthews would have had a thrill up his leg.

They couldn’t even come close to filling that stadium. That is why the speech was moved. The optics of the 3/4ths empty stadium would have been a disaster for Obama.
