In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR


Democrats Fear Getting Flattened Under Trump Fundraising Steamroller

Uh oh. Democrats are getting ulcers. Trump has too much money.

They tried impeaching him over Russia, but that was a dud. Now they’ve moved one country over to Ukraine.

But what Washington never understands is that President Trump’s supporters aren’t seeing offenses that will outweigh their belief that Trump is the only man who can stand up to Washington, fight the Deep State, retain American sovereignty, and save the culture from being swamped by political correctness and an unending flow of illegal immigrants.

Among other things. Jeb’s just not going to do it, and Mitt is a phony.

And whatever Trump may have said in a long-distance call to Kiev, Elizabeth Warren and any of the other Democrats will do far more to shred the Constitution and destroy the country.

Like, starting with packing the Supreme Court and ending with destroying the health care system.

Anyway, according to Politico:

Donald Trump and the Republican National Committee have raised more than $300 million this year for his reelection — more than any other sitting president in history at this point in the campaign.

Trump has nearly twice as much cash on hand — $158 million, between his campaign account and the RNC — as Barack Obama and the Democratic National Committee had at this time in his successful re-election run.

Already this year, Trump’s campaign operation has spent close to $23 million on TV and digital advertising, more than 10 times the amount that the lone major Democratic super PAC spending against him, Priorities USA, has laid out so far in its online-only spending campaign.

Democrats are growing increasingly alarmed by the spending chasm between the two sides — and its implications for the general election.

“The resources he has will be put to work anywhere and everywhere that he feels like he can scare up electoral votes, and Democrats will never catch up. It’s just too much money,” said Chris Lippincott, a Texas-based Democratic strategist who ran a super PAC opposing Sen. Ted Cruz last year. “That’s real trouble … I’m not here to curse the dark, but it’s dark.”

And the situation stands to get worse.

Since the start of the year, Trump’s campaign operation has run an expensive, far-reaching effort to find new small-dollar donors that is already beginning to pay dividends. The campaign netted 313,000 new donors between July and the end of September, according to numbers provided by the RNC, after spending $4.2 million in advertising on Facebook over the last 90 days.

“We don’t know if the Democratic candidate is going to be able to even compete with such a shorter timeline, even if they have significant resources after the convention,” said Tara McGowan, founder and chief executive officer of the progressive group ACRONYM.

  1. The liberal PAC ActBlue raised about as much donation money in these last 3 months as Trump has raised in 2 years and 9 months.

    To date, the full Democratic field of Presidential candidates has raised more campaign money than Trump.

    1. And when you spread the total amount raised across that herd of Dem candidates, we see what a pathetic effort that is on a per candidate basis.

  2. It’s going to take more than a big, deep money pot to overcome MrTrump’s natural advantage – if 2016 is any proof.
    Hillary had a huge purse to dig into during her campaign, she had the MSM, the outgoing administration, the entertainment activists, and yet…oh well.
    10’s of thousands of people wait in line to listen to MrTrump, and he isn’t offering anything ‘free’, he isn’t promising to steal money from the wealthy, he isn’t going to force everyone to loooove everyone else, and yet…there they are, cheering and happy to be there.

  3. The Democrats, their PACS and the anti-Trump corporate media have created a massive conundrum for themselves: the more they attack Trump, the more donations to his campaign pour in, and the more likely he will be re-elected.

    Life is good. ;+}
