Viewers can watch Donald Trump’s Albuquerque rally live online and see if the GOP’s presumptive nominee can keep the momentum of the best week of his campaign.
After decisively and unexpectedly ending the race with his big win in the Indiana primary, one that forced opponents Ted Cruz and John Kasich to drop out of the race for good, Trump has enjoyed several weeks of fence-mending within the Republican Party. He has seen voter support coalesce around him and met with some intra-party opponents, including House Speaker Paul Ryan.
Now, Trump will bring that positive energy to Albuquerque, where he will hold a rally Tuesday at 8 p.m. ET. Those who want to watch Trump’s rally live online can follow all the action in the embedded video below.
With the party coming together around him, Donald Trump saw what was likely the best stretch of his campaign. With Hillary Clinton still locked in a primary battle against Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders — who has refused to drop out of the race despite a nearly insurmountable lead, and has remained aggressive against Clinton — Trump enjoyed the traditional post-nomination bump and took a lead in a series of polls.

While Clinton’s average lead in national polls was close to 6 points just a few weeks ago, it has dropped to a virtual tie as Trump gains momentum and her campaign sputters. A new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll found that Clinton’s lead has been shaved to three points, with her lead now 46 percent to 43 percent among registered voters. She held an 11-point advantage in the same poll just one month ago.

But the poll also found bad news for Trump in the form of historically low favorability ratings.
Thirty four percent of registered voters have a positive opinion of Clinton, versus 54 percent who have a negative opinion (-20) — a slight uptick from her minus-24 score last month.
Trump’s rating is even worse than Clinton’s: Twenty nine percent have a positive opinion of him, while 58 percent have a negative opinion (-29) — an improvement from his minus-41 score in April.
“This has never been matched, or even close to being matched,” Democratic pollster Peter Hart told NBC News.
Viewers who watch Donald Trump’s rally from Albuquerque live online will likely see a sharp line of attack against Hillary Clinton. With no Republican opponents to occupy his attention, Trump has unleashed a blistering series of attacks on Clinton’s record and past scandals.
The attacks have been a factor in Trump’s rise in the polls, and they have caught the attention of Hillary Clinton. This weekend she spoke of the need to turn her attention to Trump even though Bernie Sanders has failed to drop out, saying it is a critical time to define the Republican candidate to voters.
“I do not want Americans and, you know, good-thinking Republicans, as well as Democrats and independents, to start to believe that this is a normal candidacy,” Clinton said on NBC’s Meet the Press (via the New York Times).
“I know he has a plurality of Republicans who have voted for him,” she added. “But I think in the course of this campaign, we are going to demonstrate he has no ideas. There’s no evidence he has any ideas about making America great, as he advertises. He seems to be particularly focused on making himself appear great. And as we go through this campaign, we’re going to be demonstrating the hollowness of his rhetoric.”
