Supporters of Donald Trump came out in droves Saturday to hear the former president speak at a campaign rally in Wildwood, New Jersey, as the GOP front-runner faces ongoing trials in New York, D.C., Georgia, and Florida. 

The rally was expected to draw more than 40,000 supporters. 

Many who spoke to Fox News said they believe Trump could flip the Garden State in November, when he hopes to take back the White House for a second term. 

Rod Delaine, an Amazon factory worker in Staten Island who lives in New Jersey, told Fox News Digital he drove nearly two-and-a-half hours to attend the rally. 

A New Jersey schoolteacher who identified herself as Anna, said she was motivated to attend because of the state of the economy. 


Another supporter, who identified himself as Carlos, said he believed the country needed to go back to the way things were under the former president. 

“I think this country needs to change — although, we already know what Trump’s all about. So, that change is just going to come right back to us because that’s what we need,” Carlos said. “We need Trump because I don’t think Biden is just getting the job done right now. Some of it’s his fault. Some of it is probably the people around him. But I think we need Trump back to get this country back to where it needs to be.”

Asked about Trump’s prospect in November, Carlos pointed to the large crowd gathering and said: “Take a look.” 

“There’s probably about six to 7,000 people waiting online and probably more. [The line] goes all the way back to the entrance. So, you’re looking at 35- to 40,000 people at this venue right now,” he said, noting that some people had been waiting since Thursday for the venue to open.” 

Another attendee, who identified himself as “Frank from PA,” owns a small landscaping business. He told Fox News Digital his struggling business was a huge factor in supporting Trump. 

“Finding help is hard. And the cost of fuel and everything has just been outrageous,” he said.
