Panorama picture of huge crowd at Meredith NH on Sunday

I watched Ron Paul on CSPAN yesterday and was amazed by the crowd. The camera panned the crowd but it was tough to determine just how big it was.

So I stitched together a few screen captures from the video so you can get a better sense of the crowd.

I read a report in the WSJ about this event. They started their story reporting that the crowd was more than 300.

"The crowd number is also up for debate. Fire code capacity for the room is 300 and a hotel manager counted it at 450, which would include a wave of reporters. As expected, the count from the campaign is a bit higher: 500, it said in a press release shortly after the event."

The big story yesterday was Huntsman pulling in big crowds. I read a bunch of stories where they said that there were 300 people who showed up at the Beane Towne Coffee shop. Here's the picture I saw all over where he was standing on the counter. There might have bee more people outside but it's tough to compare this crowd of 300 to the crowd of 300 that Ron Paul drew in Meredith.

The Man of the Hour

Ron Paul is consistently drawing huge crowds. This, to me, more than anything else proves that he would easily win the popular vote over anyone--including Obama. More convincingly, though, over the other Republican candidates.

You want the truth? Look at EVERYTHING the media and the GOP party insiders have to do, the painstaking effort they go to, just to keep Ron Paul from running away with it!! He is going to start piling up states after Florida, one on top of another. Ron Paul is the candidate for all true patriots.

WOOOOOOOWWW!!!

They say that a picture is worth a thousand words... I guess four pictures is worth four thousand words! Great view of the crowd :)

The Media Loves Huntsman

There's probably more media at these huntsman events than voters.

Front page this!

I am totally floored by what is going on. I was there in 2008 and there was NO media around Ron Paul. We had about 300 people at the campaign finale. His pre-primary events were like 100-200 people -- most of us with OLFD.

Now this is a huge sign that the tide has turned. Talk about a surge!!!

Go Ron Go!!!

I apologize, but I just have to ask you a question regarding your post.

What does OLFD stand for?

Thank you.

The only thing necessary for evil to triumph is for good men and women to not support Ron Paul!

This is why I love the grass roots

Do ANY Romney supporters think that his crowds are important enough to patch together in a Jpeg from C-SPAN?

Or Gingrich?
Or ho-hum Santorum?

I just love this campaign. The people are are passionate about peace, the Constitution, freedom, love, and advancing all of the very best of who we are.

It's a revolution!!

"It does not take a majority to prevail but rather an irate, tireless minority keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men."

I used to live in Meredith

and it's not that big a town. This is an amazingly large crowd.

Back In Time

With some wigs you'd swear it was a picture from the 1770s... a modern equivalent at the least. ;)

Great job on the panorama!

On Huntsman: Gross. At least take the food away from his dirty boots. Revolting.

Need more room!

Seems every event I watch is packed.

Are there no bigger rooms anywhere?

If we could have twice the crowd, think what that would show.

Why are we turning people away?

...about 40, with 25 of them being paid presstitutes.

this is probably what the Santorum crowd looks like...

Could someone post pics of Santorum's and Huntman's NH events?

That way, when one of these guys have a sudden "surge" tomorrow, and beat Dr. Paul for second place, we will have some evidence of voter fraud!

awesome.

awesome.

End the Fed. End the Wars. Problems Solved. Ron Paul.

Cleaned up the panorama a bit

Thanks

Great job. I figured someone could make it look better. That's a great picture.

This is a great idea

compare crowds. We need pictures of the size of Ron Paul crowds compared to other candidates. It is hard to spin a panoramic picture of the crowd.

Good thing Newt isn't the one standing on the glass counter top. He is a weapon of mass destruction.

Somebody called that 300?

Wow, the Meredith gathering really lifted my spirits yesterday. I was at home thinking that NH may disappoint.

Thanks for posting.
