The Obama event, held in an attempt to save struggling Democratic senatorial candidate Jacky Rosen, Morse notes, has been covered as if it was a "must-see/must-attend" blowout.

Meanwhile, Trump's rally with Sen. Ted Cruz was in Houston, Texas on the same day.
"Supporters of the president began lining up outside of Houston's 18,000-seat Toyota Center more than 24 hours before the president was set to speak," the Daily Wire's Joseph Curl reports. "The event was moved from an 8,000-seat venue after demand outpaced supply, and even once inside the Houston Rockets home court arena, requests for tickets topped 100,000 people."
An NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll released this week finds Trump with his highest approval rating ever.
