Since Labor Day President Trump has entertained more than 240,000 supporters at his rallies and speeches.
During the same period former Obama Vice President Joe Biden has entertained around 84 supporters at his events.
In the 2016 election we kept track of event attendance after the Party Conventions for both candidate Trump and Crooked Hillary. We did this because the future President was setting records at seemingly every venue he visited while Hillary could barely fill half a high school gymnasium. By mid-August we determined that President Trump had 10 times the number of attendees at his rallies than Hillary did during the same time. This year it’s worse.
By election day 2016 we determined that tens of thousands of more individuals attended Trump events than Hillary events.
The far left mainstream media claimed Hillary was up in the polls. They claimed that rally attendance didn’t matter, but it did. Momentum and enthusiasm mean a lot. (In March 2017 Deroy Murdock cited our work on FOX News to show that President Trump just plain outworked Hillary in the 2016 campaign.)
So we are running a campaign tally again for 2020. Beginning on Labor Day we started putting together the below estimates for attendance at campaign events through Saturday night, September 26, 2020.
Since Labor day we count very few events for Biden and a very small number of attendees not campaign or press related. Some of Biden’s events have had no individuals present other than approved press or campaign workers. Many days, like Saturday, Biden was not even out campaigning.
Below is the summary of events since Labor Day. President Trump has now held events with an estimated 241,330 event goers while Biden has entertained an estimated 84 event goers.
These numbers are estimates and we are open to suggested better numbers for these events but they won’t change the overall summary of our results. This year is worse than 2016. Biden seemingly can’t get out of the basement while President Trump is out almost daily with numerous events on some days.
Americans are noticing. On Friday alone, President Trump opened in Florida with a Latinos for Trump gathering, then he flew to Atlanta for a Black Empowerment speech, then he flew to Washington, D.C. before going to Virginia for a Make America Great rally. He made it home late so he could announce his pick for the Supreme Court on Saturday before another rally in Pennsylvania.
The work ethic of a politician and a billionaire are in full view:
There literally may be more Trump supporters protesting Biden events than Biden attendees at his events.
