This may not be any more indicative of election results than crowd size is, but it should be noted that Donald Trump has virtually no ground game or get out of vote operation.
A new poll conducted by Baldwin Wallace University and released this morning shows Hillary Clinton with a 9 point lead over Donald Trump in a four-way contest including Gary Johnson and Jill Stein. Clinton does not need to win Ohio to win the election, but winning Ohio would be a knockout blow.
It's more likely that Clinton's lead in the polls will translate to actual results because of the campaign's ground operation. It's also more likely Trump will under perform his polls because he has no operation.
With all of that said, everyone reading this needs to vote.
