Democratic Party Fundraising Half of Republicans

In most cases, money does not buy an election. Contrary to popular belief, voters in many cases see through the big money campaigns. Many times, a candidate who spends more money wins, but money is not the only reason generally.

Most campaign ads generate one percent added support. When was the last time you entered the voting booth humming a campaign jingle or a memorized TV quote? Surprisingly to many skeptics and talking heads, most elections are based on the issues.

Usually the candidate who already has the most money is viewed more favorably. That may not be the right way for things to happen, but it is the reality. In this year’s midterms, it is a fact that Republicans are far out-fundraising Democrats.

republican fundraising.

None other than liberal CNN is the source of that fact. According to the thoroughly “Never Trump” network, “The Republican National Committee has raised more than $200 million this election cycle, the fastest the committee has reached the milestone in a midterm period. The RNC raised $13.9 million in the month of June, the most it has raised in that month in a non-presidential year, bringing its total fundraising haul to $213 million for the 2017-2018 cycle.”

See paragraph three for support of what this may mean. The opposite is happening to the Democrats.

The Democratic National Committee (DNC) has raised far less than half what Republicans have. To be precise, it is $101 million. Adding insult to injury, the RNC has no debt with around $51 million in cash reserves.

Meanwhile, the DNC is $6 million in debt. That doesn’t include a cash debt of $9 million. The latest statistics available were from late June. With the oncoming popularity of far-left socialism by a miniscule part of the Democratic Party, it will be interesting to see how fundraising goes on a national basis.

The anti-Trump mantra by the Democrats and their media allies appears to be falling mostly on deaf ears. Democrats have not managed to put the money where their mouth is. The economy and unemployment figures make the entire midterm future look bleak.

The supposed “blue wave” is rapidly becoming nothing of the sort. Fundraising tallies provide a clear indicator of what is coming.
