The main thing, I am interested in Trump is because he is all for the veterans and doing them right. I have a veteran husband who is disabled, and needs better care. Trump in my opinion is the one to make it happen.

We went out of curiosity because we wanted to hear for ourselves what he has to say. After waiting for more than 90 minutes, we left. Nobody ever updated the crowd why Trump was running late and when and if he'd still show. Dishonest and cowardly in our opinion. We have rarely seen such a homogeneous white crowd, and we were surprised how many young folks (high school and college age) there were in the audience. We couldn't tell whether they were fans or protesters.

Yes, let's have these corrupt pols and their allies in the media and Wall Street squirm. Maybe Trump can squeeze some truth and benefits for working people out of these greedy pols.
They all want financial campaign reform then when it comes, ala Trump and Sanders, the hypocrites cry foul.

Hey purple - I attended as well and waited, and waited, and waited, and finally Donald J. arrived. Pretty much all those youngsters were Trump fans. A handful of protesters were escorted from the arena, and from my seat all of those looked to be college aged. The crowd was quite homogeneous in race, but it was a surprising mix of young and old, men and women, and folks that looked like ordinary citizens. I found Trump's remarks to be somewhat rambling and devoid of any substantive policy discussions.
.
It seemed his appeal was simply that he's not a politician. One thing for sure, the record crowd was most impressive considering the short notice, having it on a weekday, and at a bad time of day.

Packman, where there any empty seats, and if so, how empty was the building over all?

DDTK - There were more people in attendance than the facility is able to seat. Record crowd of all time. Standing Room Only. I have advocated for years that the only way to repair America's economy is to elect a business man who has business knowledge. Trump can surround himself with the genius' of every aspect of business and get this country back on the right road economically. I am also not in disagreement about some of his non-citizen views and I feel that many of the words he speaks are the words that we think but due to "political correctness" don't say. I for one believe political correctness along with social media may be the causes of todays problems.

There are pics all over the web showing many empty seats.

True to form, Mein Trumpf is lying about yesterday's attendance numbers.

Frankly, it looked like a Klan rally.

So, .. it was a no sheets Klan rally.
