Trump's fundraising is an abysmal failure, unless you go by the message of the mainstream media.

It's reported that Donald Trump raised $30 million in the first quarter and that the campaign has $40 million on hand.

Given that Trump declared his 2020 candidacy right after being inaugurated, Trump's $30 million first quarter haul is an abysmal failure.

Consider that only the first two of the twenty Democratic candidates equalled Trump's $30 million. And Bernie Sanders alone has $28 million on hand, even though Sanders has not had the advantage of Airforce One and the free travel and advantages of the presidency and the Bully Pulpit.

Here are some fundraising numbers from CBS.

Sanders $18.2 million

Harris $12 million

O'Rourke . $9.4

Buttigieg . $7 million

Warren $6 million

Gillibrand $3 million

Klobuchar $5.2 million

Booker $5 million

Yang . $1.7

Just these nine have raised about $68 million. I'd guess that the other ten or twelve candidates have easily raised seven million more, so Trump has been out-raised by one hundred and fifty percent. This is nothing to brag about. But watch the mainstream media frame the story very differently-- that Trump raised more than anyone else. It's a further indictment of every mainstream news anchor who frames it that way.

I'd like to know what the Democratic Party has raised, but haven't been able to find it. Can anyone dig up first quarter 2019 fund raising for the DNC or what Pelosi raised for the campaign?

The U.S. political and court systems have allowed the wealthy few to control the fate of the many.

Sen. Sanders had a spectacular Town Hall on FOX last night and raised an additional $2,000,000 in small donations. On FOX!


It's time the DNC and RNC were removed from control of elections. They keep forcing us to choose between the right-wing and the extreme right-wing.


It's time to allow one person to have one vote. The DNC / RNC is just a way for money to control government.

Sanders leads Biden in the latest Emerson poll.

He also leads in individual donations.

Biden hasn't even declared yet and he is already fading. Even more, Sanders looks to benefit the most if Biden doesn't declare or drops out, according to the poll. The rest of the field is in the single digits, but "Mayor Pete" is surging to 9%, third place, for now.

I wish Tulsi Gabbard was polling above 2% and able to raise more money, because I want her for V.P. but she is not resonating for some reason.
