Where's the money?
July fundraising numbers are out. The Democrat National Committee only received $3.8 million last month from donors. The RNC pulled over $10 million again. The last 5 months have been brutal for democrat donations, while the RNC has been record breaking. Republicans are outpacing democrats in donations almost 2 to 1 since Trump took office.

Through June, small donations (under $200) accounted for $33 million for republicans and $21 million for democrats. (small dollar donations give us an idea where the active bases of each party stand).

The republican base is fired up. I know that when a president has low approval numbers that his party generally loses seats in the midterms and lose the money battle. But for some reason the republicans are winning the money battle big time. Defying the odds.

My prediction is Trump beats the odds. Being a populist, his base will support him while most are bored with politics. Midterms are notorious for having lower turnout than presidential elections, but if republicans can get a large portion of Trump's base to show up at a time when democrat enthusiasm is low, the midterms will be a disaster for democrats.

Lying fool can't even read a date. "JUNE 20, 2017"
"The Democrat Received
Significant Out-of-State Support
Jon Ossoff, a Democrat, and Karen Handel, a Republican, both advanced to a runoff after securing the top spots in the initial vote this April. Their campaigns raised about $28 million, with the bulk going to Mr. Ossoff."

Numbers man. Numbers. I'm asking for numbers.

Like how much money was donated to Republican and Democrat PACs so far in 2017...

RE: Where's the money?
Here's a chart that shows money raised by the house candidates for the 2018 midterms. Although the republicans have 80 fewer fielded candidates, they have raised $1 million more than democrats. It's impossible to determine anything from the senate numbers though so don't get all crazy over the high numbers on the democrat side. There are 3 times as many democrats up for reelection in the midterms and many of them don't even have an opponent yet. All of the house is up for reelection though. If you click on the "running for reelection" in the drop down menu it paints a clearer picture.

It's not simple.

Fact: The party/candidate that raises the most money wins 90% of the time.

RE: Where's the money?
Didn't Jeb Bush just spend about a million billion dollars being boring and losing to Trump? Suddenly money's the end all be all?
