Reuters: Barack Obama made a rare appearance on the campaign trail on Sunday with a rally to support the Democratic candidate for governor in Maryland, but early departures of crowd members while he spoke underscored his continuing unpopularity.
With approval levels hovering around record lows, Obama has spent most of his campaign-related efforts this year raising money for struggling Democrats, who risk losing control of the U.S. Senate in the Nov. 4 midterm election.
Most candidates from his party have been wary of appearing with him during their election races because of his sagging popularity.
Not so Lieutenant Governor Anthony Brown of Maryland, who is running for governor, and Governor Pat Quinn of Illinois, who is running for re-election. Obama plans to appear at an event for Quinn later in the evening.
"You've got to vote," Obama repeated over and over at a rally for Brown in Upper Marlboro, Maryland, near Washington.
Democrats have a history of not turning up to vote in midterm elections.
"There are no excuses. The future is up to us," Obama said.
A steady stream of people walked out of the auditorium while he spoke, however, and a heckler interrupted his remarks.

President Obama made a shocking announcement earlier today concerning the Ebola crisis. It will probably shock you, as an informed American voter, that he would make such a sweeping decree. His order? He is, for the first time in his presidency, cancelling a fundraiser to actually do his job. He cancelled 2 fundraisers for democrats in the [...]
Every person who contracts Ebola will infect 2 others, on average. Those are hard numbers. In fact, the Centers for Disease Control put together this graph: As you can see, other viral epidemics are much more likely to be spread to many more people much more quickly, so in one sense, Ebola isn't as bad as [...]
