Obama’s not on the ballot, but he’s on posters

    The posters appearing in Philadelphia urge people to support the President by voting on Tuesday.

    An unusual political poster has popped up in Center City Philadelphia.

    The poster plastered around City Hall features President Obama sitting at his desk with the message “Support Obama, Vote Tuesday November second.” Of course, the President isn’t on the ballot this year. Larry Ceisler, publisher of politicspa.com, says the poster is the latest attempt to motivate Democratic voters.

    “Even though they have a million vote registration advantage in Pennsylvania there is just no demonstrated enthusiasm for people to come out and vote. It doesn’t matter if you have a million more people on the rolls if they don’t come to the polls you might as well be even.”

    Ceisler says the return of President Obama to Philadelphia this weekend for the second time in a month also shows how much effort Democrats are devoting to Pennsylvania’s races for governor and US Senate.
