I have no idea what list I'm on, but I got a robo-call that DJT is having a rally at UNLV this Thursday at 7:00. I'd like to go, to at least witness history. I've also seen Carter, Reagan, Clinton, George W Bush, and Obama and would like to add another notch to my presidential belt.

What do you say Vegas locals? I promise to behave myself and leave my Bernie 2016 t-shirt at home.

I just explained that to him by phone. He said the true figure is 83% and the fake news media reversed the digits.

Here is a copy and paste of what I posted after the rally including a picture link :-)

Trump Rally Tampa Convention Center
They never checked tickets. They knew the crowd would be small
I estimated the room to be about 1/3 filled
One small disruption, 2 protesters. Pretty minor. Trump couldn't even see them or hear them
After the rally a huge police presence.
Absolutely no violence between Trump supporters and protestors outside
Bunch of Guardian Angles were there with nothing to do except twiddle their thumbs. Police were well in control
They formed a line between supporters walking out and protesters.

Here is a picture I took during Trumps speech. He never asked the media cameras to pan the room. I wonder why :-)

Who cares.

EDIT: Page one of this thread: EvenBob brings up crowd size out of nowhere. You thanked him. Maybe you two can get together and talk about how much you don't obsess about crowd size.

Here's those results. I don't really understand what the big deal is; all those numbers are suuuper close, and when you add in the margin of error, they're more or less indistinguishable. Rasmussen may have had one of the "closest" 2016 election poll results, but the whole top 10 is within a couple of points of each other.

What do you mean taking long? We are in the midst of it! Record low unemployment across all demo lines. Call some placement firms and ask if their business picked up after Trump was elected.

Mexico re-negotiates NAFTA. Man-child Trudeau begging to do so lest he be left out in the cold. NATO members paying more of their fair share. World leaders taking the USA serious again.

Where have you been? Quit wasting time in the Trump threads complaining what he called some countries and look around.
