In West Chester, Ohio yesterday, the local Fire Chief estimated that over 30,000 supporters gathered to hear Mitt Romney offer his pitch for real change.
That roughly three times the combined total (10,600) at Obama’s three rallies in the Buckeye State yesterday.
Ace and Twitchy have more images from the rally. And each of these 30,000 Ohioans had to arrive early at the rally and pass through security, that is, their presence there showed an incredible amount of commitment.
And this, John Hinderaker reminds us, is par for the course for the Romney/Ryan ticket: “They draw large, excited crowds pretty much everywhere they go.” “The enthusiasm gap,”, as John puts it, favors the GOP.
Hopefully, local news will provide more reliable coverage of the rally.
UPDATE: From his perch at Instapundit, Ed Driscoll reports:
UP-UPDATE: There were 4,000 this morning at Obama’s Cleveland rally, meaning the tally at four of Obama’s Ohio rallies combined was less than half that at one Mitt Romney Ohio rally.
