I covered a lot of Donald Trump rallies in 2016. But the last one I went to was in October, at a Panama City Beach outdoor concert venue in Florida, a state Trump ended up winning. Now, at the time it was looking really good for Hillary Clinton. She was up in the polls, and Trump was busy dealing with sexual assault allegations that all started with a leaked video tape.
>> You can do anything.>> Now, I went around asking people what they thought of the polls, and all of them said, don't believe them.>> I don't believe any of this.>> There's no way that he's not ahead.>> I don't believe those would be an accurate representation of the American populace.
>> To be fair, they were right. And the enthusiasm and popularity around Donald Trump was undeniable. This was true at many of the other rallies that I went to. I met a young man named Andrew Jeffreys, who was going to turn 18 the very next day after I interviewed him.
>> I'm gonna turn 18 tomorrow, yes sir.>> He was already registered to vote, and he said as soon as he turned 18 he was going to vote for Trump.>> I'm probably one of the most informed people at my school about politics. I think his chances are very good.
I think it's gonna be a tight race, but I think, hopefully, Donald Trump will come out on top.>> Not long after this rally, a letter from the FBI revived Clinton's email scandal. And based on the enthusiasm I saw at this rally, and all the others I had been to before, it started not to look so good for Hillary anymore.
