As an expected 2022 midterm red wave election quickly approaches, forty-fifth President Donald Trump’s “Save America” rallies have become noticeably larger than they have ever been, despite always being large.
President Trump used to pack arenas to the brim with his supporters, but because of a massive influx of new supporters since then, Trump has had to change where he typically holds his rallies to large fields at airports which can fit many, many more thousands of people.
On June 20, 2018, Trump held a rally in Duluth, Minnesota at the Amsoil Arena, which had a crowd of 8,372 people, according to a report from the Washington Post.
On June 27, 2018, Trump held a rally in Fargo, North Dakota at the Scheels Arena, which had a crowd of over 6,000 people.
On July 5, 2018, Trump held a rally in Great Falls, Montana at the Four Seasons Arena, which had a crowd of over 8,000 people.
President Trump’s past three rallies for the 2022 midterm elections, all of which he entered with his iconic Boeing 757 plane, had much bigger crowds and were held in Airports.
Trump’s rally in Vandalia, Ohio on Monday for Ohio Senate Candidate JD Vance, was held at the Dayton International Airport and was attended by over 20,000 people, overwhelming the event by thousands.
Trump’s rally in Miami-Dade County, Florida on Saturday, which Trump described as his “best rally ever,” for Sen. Marco Rubio was held at the Miami-Dade County Fair and Exposition was attended by over 40,000 people.
Trump’s rally in Latrobe, Pennsylvania on Friday for Senate candidate Dr. Mehmet Oz was held at the Arnold Palmer Regional Airport and was attended by over 20,000 people.
These large numbers of people don’t include the hundreds of thousands of people who watch via live streams from outlets such as Real America’s Voice, Right Side Broadcasting, and Newsmax.
“This is the year we’re going to take back the House, we’re going to take back the Senate, and take back America—and in 2024, most importantly, we are going to take back our magnificent White House,” President Trump said at his most recent rally in Ohio.
49 percent of likely voters said they plan to vote for a Republican in the upcoming Nov. 8 election, while 45 percent said they plan to vote for a Democrat, according to a recent New York Times/Siena poll.
This comes after a September poll had the Democrats beating Republicans by one-point.
