If you needed further evidence that Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke’s campaign is crumbling, look to Nevada. His big rally turned into a huge disappointment as the crowd that was supposed to fill a courtyard turned into an “intimate event” in a small room.
He didn’t even need a mic.
Around 35 people here to see Beto O’Rourke at UNLV. The rally was supposed to be held in the courtyard outside, but students told me no one is on campus on Fridays bc it’s mainly a commuter school. pic.twitter.com/zFygogVAe6

As you can see, it could have been much smaller if there wasn’t so much press there to witness the embarrassing display of a shooting star rapidly falling back to Earth.
O’Rourke has, as predicted, been pretty strong on the fundraising end, but the huge crowds he used to draw when running for Senate in Texas have dwindled over time as he tries to take his message to the nation.
This was supposed to be a big event.

The spin machine is working overtime trying to make excuses for the lackluster reception.

The fact that it’s Friday is hard to swallow as the reason for this disappointing turnout at a school that has nearly 30,000 students. Someone who has the “star power” that Beto O’Rourke allegedly has should be able to pack a small auditorium pretty much anywhere in the country on a moment’s notice, let alone at a major university with a planned event and enough money to drum up a crowd.
If he doesn’t put out some actual policy proposals soon, people are going to get tired of him constantly speaking in generalities and with hatred towards anything conservative. In fact, they may already be tired of him.
