Mobile, Alabama doesn't usually host presidential primary rallies. But this weekend it's expected to host a doozy. Donald Trump will take over Ladd-Peebles Stadium, usually home to high school football games on Friday nights, not presidential pep rallies. Trump's campaign shifted from a smaller venue to the stadium after seeing big demand for tickets; it expects 35,000 to attend.

That's 35,000 Trump fans in a city of 200,000 -- in a county that backed Mitt Romney by 20, 30, 50 points less than its neighbors. How's Trump going to fill seats?
