ENTHUSIASM MATTERS: Trump Spoke to Nearly a Million Supporters Since August – Clinton Spoke to 110,000

Guest post by Joe Hoft


A final look at campaign rallies by the two Presidential candidates shows that excitement really does matter as well as hard work.

Donald Trump outperformed Hillary Clinton in rallies and rally attendance since the party conventions in July.


Donald Trump clearly worked harder than Hillary the past three and a half months with 132 rallies to Clinton’s 63 and it paid off with the election win. Also, he entertained nearly 1 million supporters at his rallies to Clinton’s 110,000.

Also, Clinton took 57 days off since August 1st where she held no rally.  This was more than half of the 99 days between August and election day.  Others like Obama, Bill Clinton, Bernie Sanders, etc.. held rallies for Hillary but this count only includes rallies Hillary partook.
