Bernie and AOC Boast Crowd of 26k in NYC, Outdraw Warren’s NYC Crowd

According to estimates, Bernie’s NYC rally featuring AOC appears to have trumped Elizabeth Warren’s NYC in size.

Bernie estimated 26k attendees compared to roughly 20k estimated for Warren’s NYC rally.

National polling varies significantly.

According to Politico, Biden still holds a 10 points lead with Warren and Sanders neck and neck.

The Economist has Warren out in front, with Biden just behind and Sanders double digits lower than the two frontrunners.

Breitbart reports Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) claimed a larger crowd for his rally in Queens on Saturday than Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) claimed last month for her rally in Manhattan, signaling that he is far from ready to cede the primary fight.

Sanders’s campaign estimated that 26,000 people attended his rally, where he was formally endorsed by left-wing icon Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY). Though an independent crowd estimate was not reported, a security firm that worked at the event counted 25,872 attendees, according to the Washington Examiner. The Examiner said the city had issued a permit for 15,000 people in the local park, but that about 10,000 people watched from outside.

In contrast, Warren’s campaign estimated that 20,000 people showed up for her rally in Washington Square Park in the heart of lower Manhattan in September, though the park itself only holds 10,000, the maximum permitted for the event. Warren’s campaign has a consistent habit of exaggerating its crowd sizes; Biden rarely draws large crowds.
