1. Some crowds will get as high as 100,000 in some cities.

We never get this here in NYC. I wish we could sometime. The only large Political event i went to was the RNC protests in 2004 here in nyc. Over 200,000 people came. And i went to an anti-war protest in 2007 in d.c.. 500,000 showed up to that.
