I will post in the morning about the rally today. Just got back. Initially I would estimate at least 200,000 people in attendance. I attended a rally on the Mall on July 4, 1976, attendance for which was estimate at 60,000. By 11:44 the crowd was at least twice the size of the crowd as I remember it that day nearly 35 years ago. People still were arriving today. The crowd was far bigger by 12:30.
