Since Conventions: Trump Has Had 337,995 at Rallies – Hillary Has Had 13,970

Guest post by Joe Hoft


(Trump event September 30th in Michigan)

It’s now been 2 full months since the conventions ended and Donald Trump is CRUSHING Hillary Clinton in event attendance during this period.

This estimate is based on only campaign events scheduled by the candidates and for the most part does not include events where the candidates spoke to participants at other events. Total attendance is based on best estimates and considers over-projections for Hillary rallies by almost all liberal media outlets and lowball estimates by these same affiliates for Trump events.  Actually, almost never has the mainstream media commented on the number of participants at these rallies most likely because these numbers are so shocking and devastating for the Hillary campaign.  These numbers also do not include fundraisers, debates or TV events.  This is only our best estimate for attendance at these rallies.  Note that the 12,000 people were turned away at Trump’s rally in Florida this week and at other events where Trump set attendance records.  These individuals are not included in these estimates but if they were the totals would be even more lopsided.

Since August 1st when both parties’ conventions concluded and through the end of September, Trump has had nearly 340,000 people at his events with thousands turned away due to space limitations. He has set records for some of these locations in attendance.  However, Hillary has only had 14,000 total at her rallies since August 1st. 


To put this in perspective, Trump has had nearly a third of a million (324,000) more people at his rallies than Hillary and 24 times the crowds she has accumulated. Trump turned away 12,000 people Tuesday night alone which was roughly the same amount of people that Hillary had at all her rallies since August 1st through that date! 

Trump has participation at his rallies nearly 10 times that of Hillary and Hillary is barely averaging getting in front of 200 people per day at her rallies over this 2 month period. 


Clearly these numbers show Trump has HUGE momentum

Trump set the record for the most votes by a candidate in US Republican history in the primaries and he has continued this momentum since the conventions.

Hillary on the other hand barely won her nomination, needing super delegates to beat socialist Bernie Sanders.

She very well may be the most unattractive candidate in US Presidential history and this shows in the participation at her events since the Democratic convention.
