Rally vs. Rally. Do the Math.

15 09 2008

I’ve been asked a couple times for comparative images of the Pro-Palin rally and the Anti-Palin rallies. So, here they are.

Here’s the pro-Palin rally in a room with a capacity of 5000 people. If you don’t count security, secret service, staffers, and media, I’m guessing a maximum of about 800-900 people.  Boots on the ground from the Ed Schultz Show that was in town, counted the crowd at about 500.

The first third of the Alaska Women Reject Palin rally.

The last third of the Alaska Women Reject Palin rally. There were also people on the other side of the street and a chunk between the two photos I didn’t get.

There were between 1400 and 1500 rally-goers, and about 90 at the counter rally according to an observer who went through the crowd with a counter. Anchorage police estimated “more than 1500”.

All photos were taken with the same lens.
