Hillary Clinton made a campaign stop in the crucial swing state of Ohio on Thursday.
But it seems the hall she spoke in was mostly empty.
The Democratic presidential hopeful arrived in downtown Columbus to talk about women's issues, but only around 200 people showed up.
The modest-sized ballroom was half empty for her event, with supporters herded into a cordoned-off area to give the impression of a packed crowd.
While pictures taken at the 'Women for Hillary' event show her smiling and giving a thumbs up to those in the crowd, others, including The Washington Post's Karen Tumulty, captured large parts of the venue where only the floor was visible.

She is failing too early. I would rather see moderate crowds now and the 100 person events next May!
Per some reports, most of those were from the media — hosts, reporters, camera people, sound people, etc.
Those attendance numbers rival the attendance numbers McCain was drawing in 2008.
She experienced a similar incident with flags falling on stage in 2007.
In May it will just be her cell mate and her-very small group.
We can hope!
