CLAIM: The 220,000-crowd estimate of the people’s rally of Vice President Leni Robredo at San Fernando Pampanga is bloated.

A Facebook post has claimed that the crowd estimate for the grand rally of Vice President Leni Robredo and running mate Sen. Kiko Pangilinan in San Fernando Pampanga, Saturday, April 9, 2022, was bloated.

The Facebook page Bored Productive claimed on Sunday, April 10, that based on its “estimate,” only about 41,000 came out for “Manalakaran Pampangan” or #PampangaIsPink campaign rally.

The post further claimed that the “capacity” of the open grounds of the Robinsons Star Mills mall was “approximately 41,000.” The post did not provide any clear formula, calculation, or basis for its claim aside from two aerial pictures of the venue and the crowd divided into several quadrants with their respective “full capacity” estimates.

Bored Productive’s estimate is without basis.
