This story is somewhat bogus. Not quite up to usual Breitbart standards.
The 80,000 were in downtown Cleveland. LOTS of Sons and Daughters of Barack nearby. Hundreds of thousands.
The 4,000 today were NOT in the “same” city or venue. Today’s rally was in Mentor, 25 miles to the east of Cleveland, in a different county. Employment is 5.1%
Not many black folks around. Less than 5,000 in the whole county. Lake county is 96% white and 2% black. Population 235,000. White libs mostly showing up.
Venues not comparable at all.
The only reason obama would do this would be to be seen with some happily cheering employed white people and to take credit for it. With hardly a black face around to scare those still undecided white folks.
There is no question obama could have drawn WAY more than 4,000 in downtown Cleveland, but the percentage of black faces would have been WAY too high for his liking.
C’mon, Breitbart, don’t do this kind of crap.
