HICKORY – There may have never been such a stark difference between what one likely reads about the state of the presidential race between President Donald Trump and challenger Joe Biden, and what one sees with their own eyes.
Demonstrating this most starkly is the trully massive crowds Trump is drawing at each and every MAGA campaign stop in the final days before the election. And in swing states, no less. Several of those have been in North Carolina, with more than 23,000 in attendance at the MAGA rally in Gastonia a couple weeks ago and thousands more in Fayetteville on Monday.
The size of the crowd at another, in Hickory this past Sunday, is captured in this video of a half-mile long line to enter the event.

As President Trump told yet another crowd in the tens of thousands in Pennsylvania this weekend, “This doesn’t seem like a guy who’s coming in second, does it?”
It certainly doesn’t.
Look at this picture of what the Secret Service said was more than 57,000 supporters at this weekend’s Pennsylvania MAGA rally. The Keystone State is said by Democrats to be the most important Swing State in this election, and Democrats have held tight to polls that say Biden is winning there.
And the reaction of local worried Democrats:
The President is popular in PA.
I don’t care what polls say.
With 700K ballots still out there, you need to BANK YOUR BALLOT.
Use a Dropbox.
Get them in. https://t.co/YANdwqbdYG

She is with Politico. This is not MAGA propaganda.
Can’t fake a crowd like that. But you *can* make sure you show up and get every vote in.
Every Vote Matters.
Get Them In.

It’s a sight to behold, and it either tells a story of the most enthusiastic support for a losing candidate ever; or, a story of the most underestimated presidential candidate in modern American history.
