Trump's rally: 6,500... Beto's rally; 15,000

One mile apart from each other.

A person who holds no elected office drew more than twice as many people as the President of the United States.

Trump's ego won't be able to handle it.

43. Don has a "very long" line, Beto a "tiny, little line."



If his brain were to produce a moment of normality and he saw himself as others do, his head might just burst into flames.

The Week: "We have a line that is very long already," Trump said at the White House earlier Tuesday. "And I understand our competition's got a line, too, but it's a tiny, little line."

The "competition" would be an anti-wall march organized by more than 40 local civic and human rights groups, headlined by El Paso native and potential 2020 candidate Beto O'Rourke.

About 30 minutes into his rally, Trump said he had been challenged by "a young man who's got very little going for himself except he's got a great first name. ... So we have, let's say, 35,000 people tonight, he has 200 people, 300 people not too good," Trump claimed. "That may be the end of his presidential bid."

15. Just a reminder that it's been shown numerous times

that lots of people at Trump's rallies are paid to be there. There are always craigslist ads in the location where he's going to be and if the people behind the podium don't show enthusiasm, they're removed. There is a woman behind him tonight wearing a Packers T-shirt.

Why is a Packers fan attending a small rally in El Paso, Texas?

The campaign found a receptive population in El Paso, where 62,000 people signed up to get tickets. The coliseum fits 7,500, and thousands of people hung around outside.

Because there didn't look like many people were there to listen to Beto speak. The march may have been bigger though.

Then I made the mistake of reading the comments OMG the trolls were all over it. If you read those comments, Beto had his rally in a closet at the Stop 6 and only 25 showed up. (along with the nastiest comments) I am sorry I missed the rally but I was at an important Fundraising Committee Meeting for Tarrant County Democratic Women

I hear people leave his rallies early now and are on their phones alot during them. He's starting to bore his base, and once they do up their 2018 taxes, there will be even less people st his rallies. Watch the curtains behind him.at the rallies - his staff uses them to hide empty seats and sometimes they look pretty close and in tight. Perception is his reality, after all !

Enrique Aguilar, fire public information officer, told the El Paso Times that Trump received no special treatment and that 6,500 people attended the rally at the El Paso County Coliseum.

Bloomberg News reported that O'Rourke's rally drew between 10,000 and 15,000 people.
