RE: Where's the money?
I don't think money is the only factor, though it is a big factor. But the question "show me the money" seems odd to me. If you're saying that a few super rich dudes are willing to spend shit tons of money forcing all of us into corporate slavery why should anyone be surprised?

Reality is normal people's money doesn't count for shit in elections and never has, normal peoples opinions don't matter either. We are an oligarchy so why exactly are you pointing this out as some sign that republicans are in greater number than democrats? If trump wins it's because the democrat's will continue to put forward corporate lackeys up and the majority of Americans are sick of it. But you know, keep twisting reality to say what you want it to say. I really couldn't give a fuck. By the time the midterms happen I'll quite hopefully be safely far away from this cluster fuck and the civil war it's on the brink of.

But you know....

From where I stand outside of America, I've not seen any ongoing evidence of that. In fact what I have seen is mass sackings, public altercations, and defections at the top of his "should be" supporters; rats deserting a sinking ship in some cases? Think Bannon, Scaramucci, Sessions, Priebus, Christie, Spicer, McGahn, Schaub, and even Comey.

Quote:Only 13% of the midterm voters in 2014 were age 18-29.

Next year it's predicted that more African-Americans and Hispanics in that age demographic—who're traditionally Democrat supporters—will turn out to vote.

Agreed. Anybody who includes the term "Nazi" in their debating vocabulary immediately loses any respect from me, as to their intellect. They're obviously desperadoes. Angry

Bannon said today he will work to get Trump impeached.
Bannon is in touch with Trump's base.
Trump should be very afraid.

Dumpy said today he studied Afghanistan in great detail.
LOL. He's never studied anything in his entire life "in great detail".

BTW, I think General Kelly made him get a haircut. Facepalm

RE: Where's the money?
September fundraising numbers have been released.

Republican National Committee: $10 million
Democratic National Committee: $4 million

RNC cash on hand: $44 million
DNC cash on hand: $7 million

RNC debt: $0
DNC debt: $3 million

Also, Trump has raised $25 million towards his reelection since inauguration (a record in such a short time) and is on pace to have $100 million on hand before the democrats even have their candidate picked.

The majority of donations to Trump and the RNC come from individual donors under $200.

And (so far) one dollar of every ten collected is being used to pay the traitor-in-chief's and his thug family's legal fees. Not sure how long that war chest's going to last.

LDH I enjoy your contrarian stirring of the pot but...it's conditional on you not being insane. 100, 200, 500 million, what are you going to do with the money? This guy is not going to be re-elected. You could almost argue that he will, IF he survives one term, no matter how much he fucks things up, will with great nobility say "I know you all love me and if I run for re-election I would win with 18743% of the popular and electoral vote, but I have decided to not run for re-election."

Trump won't run.
Trump won't last past the first few primaries.
Trump won't be the nominee.
Trump won't beat Hillary.

Now it's:

Trump won't be re-elected.

Voters are dumping money into the GOP and Trump in record numbers (the RNC has received $104 million and it's only October, a record in a non presidential election year).

The thing is, Trump doesn't have to be popular to be re-elected. As can be seen with the fundraising, he just has to be more popular than democrats.

A fucking dead body could beat democrats right now.

They have no platform. They have no message. They have no game plan.

Democrats have attached themselves to the far left. If they don't come back to the middle, they'll continue to lose the white middle class (the largest voting bloc).

I told you all this before the election. It's still true.

Yeah, but you didn't realize you could put your 18 yo daughter from your first marriage on your health insurance and instead she got a $5K bill from the hospital and you blamed it on Obamacare, so you'll excuse me if I question your basic knowledge of, well basically anything.
