For the second time in just a few days, President Obama saw some of his Democratic Party listeners walk away while he was in the middle of delivering a speech at the podium.

This time, the trouble was in Wisconsin, and before a partly progressive-minded crowd for gubernatorial hopeful Mary Burke, The Weekly Standard reported.

Mike Lowe, a political reporter, tweeted (@MikeLoweReports): “Some people — not a lot, but some — are leaving as the president is speaking.”

The exodus comes on the heels of a similar one that occurred in Maryland, at a Democratic Party campaign event on Oct. 19. Then, Mr. Obama was telling the crowd of the importance of voting — “You’ve got to vote,” he repeated, over the shouts of a heckler, the New York Post reported — when a steady stream of listeners began filing from the school gymnasium venue.
