Many Donald Trump supporters love to point out that he has tremendously large crowds which come out for all of his political rallies.
They say that is an indication of the enthusiasm that exists for the Trump Presidential candidacy.
And yet, all of the public opinion polls indicate a massive edge for Hillary Clinton.
So what gives here?
The answer is that large crowds have never been an indicator of voting results, and should be seen as an entertainment event that costs nothing, and therefore will draw large crowds.
Remember Donald Trump is primarily an entertainer, a reality TV star, a man of charisma, known for more than 30 years as a public figure.
And in other elections, the candidate who lost had very large crowds come to his event–as with George McGovern in 1972 and Mitt Romney in 2012, as two examples.
Where else can you get close to a well known person, who can be funny and as interesting, with his rants and ravings, as Donald Trump is, and pay nothing, and find people who feel the same as you?
So Trump crowds are NO indication of the total disaster about to take over the Trump Presidential bid.
