Trump 24 Million Democrats

This morning the Republican National Committee announced that President Donald Trump raised $24.8 million in the 24 hours surrounding the announcement of his 2020 reelection campaign, over four times as much raised by Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke and Sen. Bernie Sanders in the first 24 hours of their campaigns.

Republican Party Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel announced via Twitter that President Trump “has raised a record breaking $24.8 [million] in less than 24 hours for his re-election,” adding that “the enthusiasm across the country for this President us unmatched and unlike anything we’ve ever seen!”

According to the numbers, McDaniel is right.

Big League Politics has extensively reported about the Democrats and their various war chests. O’Rourke and Sanders lead the field by far, especially when it came to fundraising in the first 24 hours. O’Rourke, noted Irishman, raised $6.1 million in the first 24 hours of his campaign, narrowly edging out Sanders who raised $5.9 million. Both numbers were thought to be mind boggling and record breaking when they were reported.

In fact, both Democrats are in first place when it comes to fundraising within their own party by a large margin. Big League Politics reported earlier this year that in terms of fundraising in the first 24 hours, the closest to O’Rourke and Biden are Sen. Kamala Harris with $1.5 million and Sen. Amy Klobuchar with $1 million.

Some candidates, particularly Sen. Elizabeth Warren have proved to be huge fundraising disappointments. The 1/1024 Native American congresswoman raised less than $300,000 in her first 24 hours.

Of course, fundraising does not necessarily equal enthusiasm. O’Rourke is now lucky if he gets 40 people to attend his rallies, and Sanders is lagging behind the current establishment favorite, former vice president Joe Biden, in virtually every poll.

It remains to be seen if Biden, who recently stroked a 10-year-old girl and complimented her looks, will actually prove to be electable or if he will doom his own candidacy.

Polls for the Presidential Election Are Tightening, And Fast

This race is getting hot.

New polls for the November presidential election are gravitating in President Donald Trump’s direction, after months of polling that indicated Democratic challenger Joe Biden was dominating the race.

Polls from Rasmussen and the Hill have indicated that the race is close, and even within the margin of error, with the President regaining several percentage points. Polling aggregator RealClearPolitics reveals that recent polls show the President has gained 3-5 percent support.

Polls in battleground states such as Michigan and Pennsylvania show a race that is statistically tied. A Zogby Analytics poll of North Carolina, Ohio, Florida and Pennsylvania showed a razor-thin race in the latter three states, with Biden leading by no more than three percentage points in all of them.

Trump’s gain in recent rounds of polling may be a product of a refocused campaign strategy, with the President branching out to the constituency of white working class voters that proved essential to his shock 2016 election victory after former campaign manager Brad Parscale was reassigned.

Razor-thin election margins could mean the election is once again decided by the electoral college, as Biden’s lead in national polling places undue consideration on large margins of victory in reliably Democratic states such as California and New York.

Biden has been reluctant to appear in public, scheduling only a handful of events in which he’s received questions from the press. The President’s increasingly focused coronavirus press briefings may have signaled his intention to successfully control the pandemic.
