The large crowds of energetic supporters at Donald Trump’s campaign rallies have continued to make headlines, but one new photo captures the fever pitch of Trump’s popularity perfectly.
Washington Post reporter Jenna Johnson tweeted the photo of Trump’s campaign rally at Lowell, Mass., Monday night, which the Post later called ‘absolutely mind-boggling.’

Endless lines stretched into the frigid cold to get into the Trump rally. Trump was interrupted multiple times by protesters but his supporters chanted “U.S.A” and “Trump” as security and police escorted them out.
“You’re tough up here!” Trump told the attendees referencing their willingness to wait in the cold. “Not everybody could do that.”
Hillary Clinton’s rally for the same day didn’t show nearly the same numbers.

The rally came the same day Trump released his first T.V. ad of the campaign which will play in Iowa in New Hampshire.
“I am leading in every poll by wide, double digit margins,” Trump said in the statement announcing the release of the ad. “We have tremendous crowds, incredible support from all over the country and I am $35 million dollars under budget. We have spent the least amount of money and have the best results and this is the kind of thinking the country needs. I am very proud of this ad, I don’t know if I need it, but I don’t want to take any chances because if I win we are going to Make America Great Again.”
