Joe Biden was at a Detroit high school gymnasium trying to pull some votes for the Michigan's primary. As the camera is zoomed in on Biden, it looks like an absolutely packed house in the Renaissance High School gymnasium. However, the camera begins to pan out a bit and you can see it's just one section of bleachers and some folks on the ground level.
It remains unclear if there are people outside of the gym, people on the other side on the bleachers, or people who were outside of the building.
The night before Michigan's presidential primary, former Vice President Joe Biden came to Detroit on Monday, looking for votes, volunteers and campaign cash.
"Michigan, I’m counting on you in a big way," he told the crowd of about 1,000 people at Renaissance High School. "This is a state we have to win in November. I spent a lot of time in this state," adding he worked side-by-side with Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan when the city was going through bankruptcy. "I’ve always believed in Detroit, like I’ve always believed in Michigan."
Critics are doubting there was 1,000 people in attendance, but it remains unclear what the attendance was and it's difficult to tell outside of this short video clip.

Trump said one of his latest events had 40,000-50,000 people in attendance. However, it was at a location which has a max capacity of around 11,000. Even with the overflow outside, it would be tough to get to 40,000.
Trump may not have known the actual numbers until after the event.
Trump's rally in Manchester, New Hampshire was held at the SNHU arena, a venue with a capacity of up to 11,700. The crowd in an overflow area outside the venue was not large enough to make Trump's claim of at least 40,000 likely.
Despite not likely making it to the 40,000 or 50,000 Trump hoped for, his 11,700 inside was still much larger than Joe Biden's high school event in Detroit. It makes a good comparison in terms of popularity for both candidates.
One candidate, if comparing just those two events, seems much more popular than the other.Source: freep
