Default Democrat Fundraising Is Worst in a Decade

Lost over 1,000 political seats across all levels of government over the last 8 years, and now...

Now their fund raising is not even half of what the GOP is bringing in each month.

Do you all really want to continue this? America rejected your liberal agenda, and instead of recognizing that, your politicians just moved further left, and over the past year, your party has fallen apart.

As they say, don't interrupt your enemy when they're making mistakes.

Quote:
The Democratic National Committee had the worst month of fundraising in a decade in July.

Democrats pulled in $3.8 million last month. Republican fundraising lapped them twice with $10.2 million.

Democrats raised $38.2 million in the first half of 2017, a little over half Republicans' $75.4 million.

In all, the RNC owns almost $45 million, compared to the DNC's almost $7.5 million plus debts amounting to $3 million.


Keep moving further left... it's really paying off.

All those college edgumacated people... where's the money? You appeal to minorities and impressionable, loser millenials who still live at home. They don't have money.

Well, that's what happens when your target base goes to school for Gender Studies versus anything in STEM.

Finally, a thread with some truth in it.



A sad reality.

I'm not sure it's actually about the "liberal" agenda. It's more about the fact that Democrat donors feel like they got burned. And not just on Hillary. Democrats have been losing elected seats and offices like we haven't seen in a century.

If you don't pay taxes, you shouldn't vote.

You're exactly right.

The Democratic Party pretty much lost its identity.

Aside from "social" issues, they have actually shifted to the Right. They no longer can claim to be the party of labor: There is no Labor Party. That's why Republicans receive the vote of the poor and middle class. Clinton had absolutely no message and no vision for the common man.

The US political system looks more and more like a one party system every day. They just argue about social issues....that's pretty much it, just two factions within a pro business, pro wealthy party.

By the way, I have always voted Democrat.

With their "Super Delegates" and also their treatment of Bernie Sanders during the Primaries, they have alienated the fück out of everyone. They are demonstrably more corrupt than the Republicans. Who want to throw money at an openly corrupt party?

GOP is headed for another landslide loss now...thats the funny thing. Trump is doing you guys in just like Bush did. Most moderate voters are realizing just how incompetant and against the people republican policies are.. on many fronts. If the economy collapses under trump in 2-3 years the republican party will never win another election. The dems will take full control.

That's why the democrats have had their worst fundraising month in a decade, and the GOP is doubling then up every month.

Maybe they just love that underdog role.

the money you're talking is chump change... and doesnt matter much. I bet the GOP was winning that money race back in the mid 2000s too when they gave the DEMs a super majority in congress and a black president too.

This. Democrats abandoned the people they were supposed to represent, and sold out their own people for pathetic moral grandstanding and pushing the financial/corporate agenda--but parties, really, have left their voter-bases behind and now identify more with an international clique of elitists than with their own citizenry (but this is the story throughout most of the western world, all ruled by a monolithic elite hiding behind the facade of "democracy" and pretending--with the help of a complicit media industry--that they aren't selling out their own citizens left, right and centre).

Two sides of the same grubby coin.

You are delusional. I love how you say things like the bolded almost gleefully, and then try to pretend you aren't just another partisan hack shilling for a corrupt party machine. An expressly anti-American party isn't going to get very far, no matter how shitty its competition (and the Democrats, in selling out American interests to foreigners, is just that--not that the GOP doesn't do this too, but they aren't as overt and explicit about it): if you don't know this, or can't see why this is, it's because you live in an echo chamber.
