Hillary Clinton has no campaign rallies scheduled for the foreseeable future.
No campaign rallies are scheduled for the next month! A list of her upcoming events shows a fundraiser she is expected to participate in Sunday August 21st with Cher and then no campaign rallies scheduled into the foreseeable future. The only other event in August that she is currently scheduled to participate in is on August 31st at the American Legion National Convention.
Donald Trump on the other hand continues to outpace Hillary Clinton in rallies and in attendance at campaign events through the first three weeks of August. Trump now has more than doubled the number of events that Clinton has held. Month to date through August 19th Trump has held 24 campaign events to Clinton’s 11. He also has events scheduled Saturday, August 20th through Wednesday, August 24th with Sunday the only day that he is taking off. (Note that this list only includes campaign speaking engagements and not visits with government and corporate leaders which Trump appears to be outpace Clinton as well.)
Due in part to the number of events held, Trump continues to significantly outpace the number of event goers that Clinton has month to date. Trump has accumulated more than 131,000 people at his rallies while Clinton has accumulated only a little more than 10,000. Clinton has given speeches to an estimated 14,500 event goers but one of Clinton’s speeches was to the NABJ/NAHJ which was not a Hillary campaign event. This event had an estimated 4,000 in attendance. When considering only Clinton campaign events Hillary has only 10,500 campaign goers in attendance month to date. As a result Trump has more than 12 times the number of attendees at his events than Hillary.
While Trump continues to smash Clinton in attendance at events, Clinton continues to take time off. Clinton took the weekend of August 6th and 7th off, three days off the following weekend, August 12th through 14th, and has not held any campaign rallies since Wednesday, August 17th. She also has no events scheduled to participate in through Sunday August 21st and as noted above, she has no campaign rallies scheduled in the future at all.
Clinton is holding campaign speaking engagements only 50% of the time. When Clinton had a similar pattern in the primaries, mainstream media came to the rescue and implied that Clinton’s strategy was “going small”. This is nonsense and it is more and more clear that something is wrong with Clinton. She is either weak or sick or both.
Clinton cannot continue to fall further and further behind to Trump in events, attendance at events and in social media and expect to win the election. If she wants to win the election she will have to get out in front of people. But if she is sick, she risks getting sicker if she holds more events. Also, if Clinton has an episode or another seizure like has occurred in the past then Americans will know something is wrong with her health.
If Americans see her as sick they likely will vote for a healthy Trump over a weak and sickly Hillary. Clearly Hillary’s emails and now her health are two (of many) areas where Clinton chooses not to be honest with the American public.
