Report: Only 1-2,000 People Attended Trump’s Weekend Rally in North Carolina

Donald Trump has maintained that he is the GOP’s only hope of winning in 2024. And most in the party have gone along with it. There are signs, though, that the former President is nowhere near as popular as he used to be.

Trump used to have a massive social media presence with over 75 million Twitter followers. Since his ban from the site, however, the former President has had multiple failures in his attempts to create a right-wing alternative to the social media site.

To stay in front of voters, Trump is still holding rallies. While the events are ostensibly about supporting other Republican candidates, the former President is clearly the one in the spotlight.

One noticeable thing, though, is that there are far fewer people in the crowd then there were in 2016. Trump held a rally in North Carolina this weekend in support of Madison Cawthorn, Ted Budd and Mark Robinson. According to a report from the News & Observer:

“Former President Donald Trump is taking the stage at The Farm in Selma in front of what appears to be roughly 1,000 to 2,000 people — substantially fewer than the 15,000 who attended his rally at the same venue in the days before 2016’s presidential election.”

GOP Strategist Susan Del Percio mocked Trump over the weekend, saying, “Donald Trump? Yes, he can bring out those people, but those crowds are getting smaller and people aren’t buying into it, mostly because Republicans want to move on.”
