TLDR: This was a radio recording and 2000 people showed up. Truman didn’t have a great relationship with the press. Particularly one of most important press barons of the time who wanted Truman to look unpopular. Including Life printing a picture of Truman in Cheyenne on an unattended parade when in fact a 160,000 people had shown up. An Omaha record.
Truman won the election in possibly the biggest upset in U.S. history.
