The picture above is what the media wants you to believe a Hillary event looks like. A portly, wrinkled grandmother with a gray pantsuit demurely covering flabby cankles in front of an adoring crowd, dispensing the wisdom of the ages. The truth is a lot less photogenic as these two reporters, who have probably been tossed out of the political reporter’s union by now, show.

A producer for Fox also captured the scene.
@HillaryClinton just wrapped Women for Hillary event in Columbus. Decent energy crowd but not a full room. pic.twitter.com/UKIuEO6Urf — jakebgibson (@JakeBGibson) September 10, 2015
Keep in mind this was less than two miles from the Ohio State University campus and even the feminists and SJWs there couldn’t be bothered to attend. A real front runner doesn’t play to a nearly empty auditorium.
Right now you have to figure that Hillary is the statistical favorite to win the Democrat nomination. But her support is cratering. She has lost a third of her support among Democrats since April and Republicans and Independents loathe her. What has looked like a coronation followed by a fat and sleek (well, she’ll still be that) Hillary entering the general election with a unified party is looking more like a series of embarrassing losses or close victories followed by a harried Hillary leading a dispirited Democrat party.
