Let’s see how the rest of his rallies go
And don't forget, surrounded mostly by other red states. Also, just to clarify, no tickets were "purchased". This is an RSVP system. So a bunch of fakes, and some real RSVP'd to this event.
And only 6,200 showed up.

So the amount of fakes definitely made it challenging for them to plan for the appropriate number of people that would actually attend.
But there's more to it than that.
This happens for every event Dem and Rep. Lots of fakes, lots of people that RSVP to "show support" but don't actually intend to come.

It's the job of a competent campaign manager and team to sift through those numbers and determine the venue and logistics.

First, it couldn't have been incredibly difficult to discard a large majority of the fakes. They say they cross-reference by cell phone number and or/email. . So if it was Kpop involved, a lot of those were probably overseas RSVP's. Easily discarded.
Any individual RSVP'ing dozens of times, easily discarded. A insane amount of new logins and emails/numbers that they already don't have in their system, should have been a HUGE red flag especially at this level.

Also, these RSVP's always come with a donation ask. Like I just RSVP'd and donated to the Biden/Obama virtual event next week. So there again, is a major way to weed out fakes and real.

Then, you have to calculate what percentage of RSVP's usually actually attend. Maybe it's 50% or 25%, Who knows. But that's the job of campaign.

So maybe they were able to get rid of a lot of fakes, but not all, and they figured 100k were real, and 50% of that is 50k, and they planned for that. Who knows.

Or, they are so up Trump's ass, that all they cared about was reporting to him how many RSVP's they got, and didn't really do their due diligence.

Whatever the case. This was a screw up at the Manager/campaign level. And beyond that showed just how few of the truly die hard, sleep on the street, die of a virus Trump cult members there are.

It will be interesting if they even have another rally soon. This has to have shell-shocked them a bit. I can see Trump suddenly using "safe social distancing" as an excuse not to hold another one. Which would be hilarious, but irony and shame never stopped these people before.

Frantic texts going out begging people to come to the indoor rally. This is just so sweet.

https://twitter.com/TheRickWilson/st...77712233676800

Omg, I know! I was on DU tracking the rally there when that begging tweet was posted!
I should have peeked in here to see if a bunch of you were posting at that time.
I need more political interactions faster which is why I joined DU.
Are any of you there?

They grabbed her, handcuffed and arrested her for obstructing a police officer.

This is America 2020
I saw the photo of them taking her away
She was peaceful, and a young elder. SHAME!

So Bolton says he will be voting for Biden.

Some history of he and Biden:

Biden and Bolton have a long history of clashing personally. At the Reagan DOJ, Bolton shepherded the Bork nomination that Biden helped defeat as Judiciary chairman. As SFRC ranking member, Biden helped torpedo Bolton for UN ambassador.

I think more important than the actual tiny turnout, is the video of the people in the arena, yawning, sleeping, staring blankly, looking at their phones, etc.
Like Donnie’s Father said, you can only con people for so long. And I think we are looking at the expiration date.

God, let's hope so. Even cults have to weaken and fall eventually, and if this is the beginning of the end of this one, then fantastic.

Project Lincoln out fast with a new ad. This one certainly is for an audience of one.
And we see that it works. Project Lincoln was the one that started #rampgait and had an ad about his drinking of water and walking the ramp.

Last night at the rally, 1 out of every 8 minutes was Trump talking about the ramp. They know how to send him into a tailspin.

This one is less subtle shall we say. LOL

I think this is both interesting and important. Just to really grasp how much has changed since 2016.

The disappearance of the "hidden Trump voter"

President Trump "was stunned, and he yelled at aides backstage while looking at the endless rows of empty blue seats in the upper bowl of the stadium, according to four people familiar with what took place." https://nyti.ms/3dnOqZ4

He said he wouldn't vote for Biden. He said he would figure out a conservative Republican to write in.

The Bolton interview was gold. I just wish he would have testified, even though it wouldn't have mattered. He said the Democrats committed impeachment malpractice, and he's probably right.
