PoliticusUSA: Nobody Shows Up For Trump Rally In Florida As Trumpís Big Boasts Draw Smaller Crowds

By Jason Easley on
Wed, Nov 2nd, 2016, 4:31 pm

According to the fire marshall, an Orlando, FL venue that holds 10,000 was a quarter to a third full, just moments before Donald Trump's rally was set to begin.

=snip=

See all that green space? That is what a dying presidential campaign that is losing looks like. It is a political fact of life that dying presidential campaigns see their crowds drop off in the final days of the campaign. It happened to John McCain in 2008. It happened to Mitt Romney in 2012, and it is happening to Donald Trump in 2016.

Republican Congressional leaders have already begun planning how they are going to handle a Hillary Clinton presidency. The election is far from over, but while Clinton continues to draw full houses wherever she goes, Trumpís crowd size has been dropping off for weeks.

1. But I thought this was all the media's fault!

They're not reporting the YUUUGE crowds he's attracting.

2. Early voting is a huge factor. 4 million already in Florida

Not much reason to go to a Trump rally if you have already voted because Trump doesn't even have a GOTV operation.

8. Rally here in Pensacola due to begin any minute.

Last time he was here he came to the Bay Center (formerly the Civic Center) and drew quite the rowdy crowd here in NW FL. Tonight's hoe-down has been moved to an outdoor setting to an amphitheater behind the baseball stadium used for a local ball team. Smaller venue than Bay Center. It will be interesting to see what they report the turn out to be. They just announced the stop a couple of days ago, so not much time to get the faithful to turn out.

and they had booked a 10000 venue.

Let's see the crowd then.

12. this is the real reason why he hates katy tur

she has been calling him out for months in interviews on msnbc about how he has consistently lied about the size of his crowds. the man is sad and pathetic. projecting once again, claiming he is drawing the big crowds, when we're seeing right now that hillary, michelle and president obama are the ones holding large, diverse rallies.

One more bit of good news. Just the hard core deplorables left now.

Local news now crowing about large crowd for Mike Pence, boy are they excited. Just reported polls in Co show 39 to 39 tie between orange Hitler and Hillary..

21. I really think this is a story the press is suppressing...

I think Trump crowds have been dwindling for a while now but careful staging and even more careful camera angles are used to keep selling the "horse race" meme. It's happened before and the M$M always says they don't talk about it because they don't want to "influence" the election...

Which of course is influencing the election...

29. Donald Trump is a pathological liar.

We're not talking "the dog ate my homework" kind of defensive fib.

Trump lies so much he wouldn't know the truth if it hit him in the face (after which Trump would sue Truth).

He is also a terrible, awful, disgusting creature. I can't think of anyone since you-know-who who has spewed so much hatred and led a more self-centered, ultimately useless life.

Trump in the Oval Office? I'm with Mark Cuban.

I may go down smoking in flames eating crow on Tuesday evening, but I honestly think Florida is going to be a safe win for Secretary Clinton.

Loud but decidedly small contingent outside of the early voting hall we used in Port St. Lucie yesterday. No HRC supporters seen.
Then this evening, all four corners of a major intersection in St. Lucie West each with a dozen or so deplorables.

Is it possible this is now happening with Trump?
