Actually the 18,000 is the Secret Service's estimate.

Yes, if only the size of rallies determined the outcome of elections.


For instance, in October 2012 Mr. Romney was drawing big crowds after the first debate:


Mitt drawing larger crowds - POLITICO


Why, on November 4, 2012, even Breibart breathlessly reported that 30,000+ appeared for a Romney rally in Pennsylvania!

Unfortunately, Mr. Romney did not actually win the Keystone state.

Aside from that they told our agent that at Mcdill airbase there is an overwhelming support for Trump as yhe military personnel can't get over the fact she gets away with legal issues that if one military person would do 1/5 of what she did, they would be in prison.

Clinton run against maybe 4 or 5 people foe which only 1 was a serious on tender while Trump had 16 big names to compete.

Please keep yhe facts straight! Hillary's fact checker is not a fact checker but a partisan bs pro Clinton puppet.
Please, that is the most ridiculous statement, facts are not partisan they are what they are. These are the polls that Donna keeps talking about, "we are winning, I just got our official Florida poll results" which is some dude counting bumper stickers. For record I live in fl in a 90% + white area with high socioeconomics, in others words super Republican, 4 years ago you were tripping over Romney signs, my kids school mock elections were like 90% Romney, this time there is 1 trump yard sign which BTW the neighbors call it the "Trump sign house" because it so rare, there is a lot of GOP signs for the downstream races but none for Trump. There are about the same number of Gary Johnson signs as there are Hillary signs.

The main thing who counted what? Did the op count the heads in the picture, no that can't be, that would be comedy show material.

It's not about that. Why didn't the media count the size of the rally? Clearly it was easy for a citizen to do that. The media doesn't do their job.

By the by, who is the 'we' as in "we counted and it was 3,051"?


Doesn't such a specific number raise any red flags to you?

If no one cared, the msm wouldn't have made up the lie about it being 18,000. Of course they care.

Or let's look at this from another perspective - Obama was drawing rally crowds of 100,000 - guess who won then! Just because Romney had a few successful rallies and didn't win does not mean that Trump won't.

Libs seem to forget that there is the silent majority out there who does not say who they are supporting because they don't want to put up with BS from Hillary supporters.

Don't fret, attendance means jack. Clinton got 3.5 million and 2.5 million more popular votes than Sanders and Trump, respectively, in the primaries. There is zero correlation. On the other hand, the bumper stickers . . . . .

Mick
Mick, every time news comes out that Hillary had a conversation about sand n******, destroying evidence while be subpoenaed, telling politicians to lie about the financial crash so the big banks to get to much heat, having the DNC leak information about Sanders campaign while they were running against each other, and laughing after freeing a rapist you (and other Hillary supporters) brush it aside without a care in the world

Question: even if you hate Trump, do you like and believe Hillary?

Do Trump fans know how to read or count?

The sand n---- was in a newspaper article quoting Palestinian cops.

If Hillary got 18k people, there would have to be 6 times more people than what was pictured, highly doubtful.
