    Confusion abounds regarding the crowd estimate for 9/12 protest, and the above article quite thoroughly combines all the current estimates. Read the article for the methodology.

    If this protest indeed broke the 800,000 people who attended the Inauguration, this does mark an unexpected shift in American politics...the modern community organization of the center-right.

    Unfortunately, this is rough speculation until the official park service count is in. Time will tell...

    What the fuck are you smoking?

    A.) Just because you take inflated numbers, doesn't mean you "average" it in. There weren't not 800,000 there on 9/12.

    B.)
    - Again, are you smoking some heavy drugs? 1.8 million people attended the Inauguration, not 800,000. Which if you look at the pictures of Obama being sworn in and the tea party rally, you can tell it's not 800,000.

    C.) The park service is REFUSING to say what the number was. HOWEVER, before you cry "It's a conspiracy! The Liberals! The Liberals!" The Park Service has not gotten a number since they were almost sued by the people behind the Million Man March by stating there were 400,000. The same shit would go on here.

    D.) The Head of Freedom Works LIED to the crowd and said ABC NEWS reported there being 1.5 million people there. ABC NEVER said such a thing.

    Seriously, put down the pipe, and come back to reality.

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LoPud1TeubM]YouTube - 1.5 to 2 million march on Washington D.C Tea Party protest rally September 12 2009[/ame]


    i know its tough to tell but in that video it looks like well over 100,000 people had attended.

    I have no clue how many were really there but this video looks like an easy 100,000.

    100,000 sounds like a reasonable number, as the 60-70 Thousand number was taken in the middle of the day, it seems reasonable that another 30k or so showed up earlier and then left or later.

    100k is an appreciable crowd. It's NOT 2 million, but it's a big number.

    And what is this, like the 20th Thread on the same subject on the board? Isn't there a rule against that?
