The teens did not sink turnout. Anyone who wanted to go could have gone, but even in deep red Oklahoma they couldn't be bothered.

... the more people thought to be attending, the less attractive the event.

Driving to an event to wait in the hot humid weather to try and see their Furor probably gets less and less appealing as you hear 800000 or 1000000 people are there competing to get in the building and to find parking (but not too close to the neighborhood where "those people" live).

That's what happened, AND IT'S BIG!!!!

We shouldn't be distracted from its import by the games these kids played. For sure the pros don't misunderstand and are busily trying to analyze and quantify all the reasons Trump loyalists stayed home.

Hopefully, the attention the "activists" on these websites are drawing includes some very good advice on how to really make a difference. They're clearly up for trying.
