130,000 people attended the Trump rally in Orlando this week: Is this a clear sign he is easily going to win the 2020 election?

Donald Trumps rally in Orlando this past Tuesday was a U.S. record for largest presidential rally in U.S. history.

the stadium that could fit 30,000 was filled to maximum capacity, and there were a reported 100,000 others outside of the arena, totaling 130,000 people attending the rally.

The democrats on the other hand, have failed to have more than a few hundred show up to their rallies.

Do you think that a clear sign that Trump is going to easily win the 2020 election?

    No, for several reasons.

    First off, there weren't 130,000 people there. The venue holds 20,000 people (not 30,000) and was near, but not at, capacity.

    Second, 130,000 is a drop in the bucket. About 130 million people cast ballots in the 2016 election, meaning that 130,000 (which, again is not the number of people who were actually there) would be only one tenth of one percent of the total ballots cast. Even in Florida it would only be about 1.3% of ballots cast in 2016. And 2020 will probably see even more people vote.

    Third, the hypothetical 130,000 attendees don't necessarily indicate that Trump is popular. All it indicates is that 130,000 people wanted to go to this rally. It doesn't indicate if these are new people who have been won over to Trump, old supporters, people who don't plan to vote, or how this relates to other voters.

    Fourth, while Democrats would clearly want to win Florida, it's not strictly necessary for them to win. If they win back the rust belt states which Trump flipped then they will win, even if he takes Florida. And the polling, including internal Trump polling, all indicates that Democrats are, currently, likely to beat Trump in those states. Also, the fact that Democrats swept all statewide races in those states in 2018 shows that Trump could be in deep trouble. Of course, the attendees might not all have been from Florida, but if we assume that they came from other states as well then that further reduces the importance of their numbers.

    Since when does it take 130,000 people attending a rally to win a Presidential election? Why would you try to extrapolate that into winning in 2020?

    I doubt that many attended, but it was a good turnout regardless. Campaigning is something that Trump is truly good at. He campaigned rings around Clinton in 2016 and I think he will easily out-campaign whomever the Democrats nominate in 2020.

    If you can believe 130,000 people showed up at a venue that holds 20,000, and wasn't even full, then you may believe Trump is going to win again. Being a Republican today is all about believing what you'd like to beilieve despite abundant evidence to the contrary. The rest of us don't have to believe it.
