It seems the media is finally realizing what you and I have known for at least a year: Donald Trump is attracting far more people to his rallies than Hillary Clinton. And it’s not even close. The latest numbers show he is pulling in 80 TIMES as many folks.
Donald Trump is increasing his lead over Hillary Clinton in the number of campaign rallies and in the number of participants at these rallies since the major party conventions. When accounting for only campaign rallies held by the Republican and Democrat Presidential candidates since August 1st (i.e. not counting fundraisers and engagements other than rallies), Trump is blowing Clinton away in number of events and in number of attendees.
In August Trump held 32 campaign rallies to Hillary’s 11 and he had attendance at these rallies of twenty times Hillary with nearly 200,000 participants to her 10,000. In September the data is even more lopsided. Through the first 24 days in September, Trump has held 21 rallies to Clinton’s 6 and his rallies have been attended by nearly 100,000 to Clinton’s nearly 2,000. As a result Trump has had 54 times the number of attendees at his events than Hillary in September!
Clinton has only held 7 events since August 17th which account for a paltry 2,250 in attendance. On the other hand, Trump has held 32 events since August 17th which were attended by nearly 188,000 people. In this time period Trump has more than 80 times the number of attendees at his campaign events than Clinton.
