Trump Rally in Roanoke, VA September 24th – Heavy.com
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!
In total Trump has held 3 times the number of events since August 1st (53 to 17) which have been attended by 25 times the number of participants with nearly 300,000 at Trump events compared to less than 12,000 at Clinton events!
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.
Clearly there is something wrong with the Clinton campaign to have such a small number of events so close to the election. It might be due to the poor turnout or else she is sick or perhaps both.
