Stewart/Colbert Rally Drew More Than Double the Attendees of Glenn Beck’s Gathering, Estimates Say

November 1, 2010

(ChattahBox US News) – With gatherers crowding the nation’s Capitol on Saturday, estimates of how many people attended the “Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear” ranged widely—but a scientific study has pinned down the tally, reports., a company that creates estimates for government agencies such as the U.S. Border Patrol, estimated that 215,000 people attended the Saturday rally, hosted by Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert.

That’s more than double the number of people who attended Glenn Beck’s August rally, determined. Beck may have thought he saw up to a half million people at his August Tea Party rally, but the scientific estimate noted that Beck’s “Restoring Honor” gathering drew 87,000 people, indicates.

CBS News hired to provide the estimates, which had a margin of error of plus/minus 10 percent. Beck balked at the comparison, but CBS responded by offering a detailed description of how AirPhotosLive came to its conclusions.

    Beck’s pictures were photoshopped by Beck’s Nazi supporters. How else do you explain the same person standing in five different places at eh same time?

    This is where you can find photos of both. The density looks the same to me however there is the whole area where the reflecting pool is which is empy and the stewart rally was packed solid from the street to street, shoulder to shoulder, chest to back.

    Liberals will lie in the face of truth. The photo’s show Beck had a larger turnout. Stewart had a great turnout as well. But Beck was larger. Ask a liberal if the Earth has a moon. Answer: Nope Retort: But I see a moon right there in the sky, how is that? Answer: It’s photoshopped. hahahahahah
