Attendance at campaign events is one way to measure enthusiasm for the candidate. In this respect, Trump appears to be outpacing Hillary by a good margin. The chart below shows estimated attendance at the two candidates rallies between August 1 and August 14:
As you can see enthusiasm for Hillary is pretty low. The highest attendance for Hillary, 4,000, occurred in Washington DC. That was a special event for members of the National Association of Black Journalists and the National Association of Hispanic Journalists:
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton addressed the NABJ/NAHJ joint convention on Friday, Aug. 5, 2016 in Washington, D.C. The convention attracted nearly 4,000 attendees and about 1,500 were present for Clinton’s appearance. (emphasis mine)
So that 4,000 figure is questionable. Hillary’s second highest attendance was in Omaha, Nebraska with 3,300 people. Notably, Warren Buffet joined her at this event which could account for some of those in attendance.In contrast Trumps highest attendance came in Fort Lauderdale, Florida where 20,000 people showed up. In some venues His overflow support remained outside due to capacity limitations. Trumps rally supporters are fired up and committed, but that’s not the end of his story of support. Joe Hoft at Gateway Pundit also notes that “social media patterns” show Trump should win in a “landslide.” On Facebook Trump has 10,174,358 “Likes” to Clinton’s 5,385,959 “Likes”. On Twitter Trump has 10.6 million followers while Hillary has 8.1 million followers. (See link for similar stats on You Tube, Reddit, and Instagram.)
This pointed yet much ignored bit of information could explain stories in the media suggesting Trump isn’t suitable and should just give up.
Simple common sense tells us that the elites in media and politics have aligned and work daily to defeat Donald Trump and award Hillary Clinton with the presidency. We can’t let that happen.
One more thing. Another point to be taken from the chart is the number of days Hillary doesn’t even schedule a rally. She took 7 off days in a 14 day period compared to just 2 for Trump. This raises questions about Hillary’s health issues and stamina levels. Is anyone asking serious questions about this?
It’s difficult to endure the daily barrage of negative coverage on Trump when we know there’s plenty of material to garner similarly negative headlines for Hillary. Keep in mind it’s all done to discourage Trump voters and sway undecided voters. Hillary represents everything that has gone wrong over the past eight years. That all to obvious fact explains the big crowds coming out for Trump…don’t be discourage, be determined!
The elites do not own us so let’s keep our chins up and let’s stay on course. At stake is the state of our economy; a return to law and order; safety for the American people and defeat of terrorists; an end to divisive policy and politics; and Supreme Court nominees.
