1/5/16, "This crowd shot from Donald Trump’s Massachusetts rally is absolutely mind-boggling," Washington Post, Chris Cillizza

"Donald Trump went to Lowell, Mass.--a town about 5 miles south of the New Hampshire border.--for one of his now-trademark big-arena rallies on Monday night. This is what the crowd looked like per WaPo's Jenna Johnson.

The building — named after the late Massachusetts Sen. Paul Tsongas (D) — holds 8,000 people, and local officials were estimating that it was filled to capacity or beyond. That is a MASSIVE amount of people — especially considering that the high temperature in Lowell yesterday was 29 degrees and Trump's rally didn't start until the evening.

This is what the line to get in looked like.

I know that crowd size is an uncertain indicator in politics....

And yet, the willingness of so many people to wait so long in such cold temperatures simply for the chance to see Trump speak would suggest that the idea that his supporters won't be the sort of people to sit through the long caucus process of Iowa or turn out to vote in the frigid cold of New Hampshire might be misguided.

Ditto the idea that Trump's bubble would burst or the ardor with which his backers regard him would fade. The Iowa caucuses are in 27 days. New Hampshire votes in 35 days. The time is now, and people are still showing up in droves to see — and cheer — Trump.

Crowds like the one in Lowell on Monday should make clear to the last few lingering doubters that the Trump phenomenon isn't going away as voters begin the process of picking a Republican presidential nominee. Hell, he might even be getting stronger."

1/4/16, "Trump speaks in Lowell on Monday. (Melina Mara/The Washington Post)." "These are the towns that love Donald Trump," Washington Post, Jenna Johnson. Another article that can't find anything wrong with Trump supporters except that they might vote in 2016. To give themselves something to do, the media puts out articles portraying Trump supporters as inferior, economically disadvantaged, or that some Trump rallies are in areas of America in which there is great suffering. Meaning what, they shouldn't be allowed to vote? Their votes shouldn't count? He should ignore them? Whatever happened to "hope and change"? In any case, why wouldn't every candidate not beholden to open borders lobbyists address the many Americans who've been kicked around and laughed at for decades? Oh, right, there aren't any other candidates not beholden to the open borders crowd.
