When it comes to excitement, Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s campaign has been chugging along like an ’86 Ford Tempo.
Meanwhile, Republican rival Donald Trump has been seeing epic turnouts at his rallies, especially in swing states.
Take Melbourne, Florida, where Donald Trump managed to draw 15,000 people this week in what was arguably the most important of the swing states in the 2016 election cycle.
Hillary Clinton, meanwhile, had a bit of a different reception in Iowa, where The Gateway Pundit reported that she had 600 people show up for a rally in the state’s largest city, Des Moines.

You may notice an awful lot of building in that photo tweeted by The New York Times reporter Thomas Kaplan. That’s because that’s all that showed up for Hillary on a rally for the first day of early voting.
Meanwhile, here’s what Trump managed to draw in Florida, and still had to turn away 12,000 people:

And in Iowa, there were almost as many Trump supporters as there were Hillary acolytes.

Making Des Moines great again, and Hillary grate again!
If you didn’t make it to the Des Moines rally, you weren’t necessarily missing much. According to Breitbart, Clinton’s speech at the event was her usual farrago of boilerplate liberal angst.
“It breaks my heart to see all the mean-spirited, divisive, bigoted things that are being said in our country,” the Democrat nominee reportedly said, placing her hands over her heart for emphasis. No mention, for whatever reason, was made of the danger that “superpredators” cause. I wonder why.
Meanwhile, as for Trump, she said that “(h)e spends all of his time just dumping on America.” No mention was made of the “basket of deplorables,” either.
America is getting tired of this boring hypocrite, and it shows. Attendance is way down at Hillary Clinton events — when she even holds them — and nobody is terribly interested in what she has to say. And what does the media say about it? Crickets.
Try to hide it all you want. Nov. 8 is coming, and it might not be the cakewalk the media thinks it’s going to be.
