Early Tuesday morning, hours before Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump arrived to speak inside the Million Air hangar at the Orlando-Sanford International Airport in Florida, reporters found supporters of the billionaire candidate already lined up, ready to hear his message.
Included among these impassioned supporters was Guy Fitzpatrick, who said he had arrived at 4:15 a.m., nearly 12 hours before the scheduled start of the rally that afternoon.
“This is my third rally and I’ve always been first in line,” he told WKMG. “I get energized, I’m so frustrated with the system. This is my outlet. I couldn’t think of anything better than not sleep, I’m on my 27th hour of being awake, and that’s the truth as God is my witness.”
Fitzpatrick wound up being just one of an estimated 10,000 who reportedly showed up for the event. So many Floridians came to see Trump, in fact, that the hangar ran out of space.
“They said, ‘The people don’t fit into the hangar,’” Trump himself later admitted to his supporters at the start of his speech. “I said, ‘That’s a good problem — isn’t it?’”
Actually, it was a great problem — one unknown to Democrat candidate Hillary Clinton and her running mate, Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine, whose rallies have been embarrassingly small in comparison to those for Trump and his own running mate, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence.
For instance, a rally held by Kaine in Florida this Monday reportedly attracted roughly 30 attendees:
Nor was this an isolated event:
The media has cited countless polls to argue that Trump is slated to lose the November election, but the huge enthusiasm gap suggests otherwise.
Day after day, thousands of Americans line up at rallies across the nation to express their support for the GOP candidate. Meanwhile, Clinton is barely able to get anyone to show up for her events, let alone stay awake through them.
