It was sponsored by Moving Marin Right, a group of North Bay Republicans who want to see the president stay in the White House for four more years.

Many said they did not believe polls which showed Trump well behind Joe Biden.

"Not a single person is surprised what's happening here tonight, we didn't believe the polls," said Trump supporter, Melanie Morgan, "I think Trump is going to win tonight."
