Beto Raises 6 1 Million Bernie

Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke is winning the fundraising contest after raising $6.1 million in the first 24 hours of his campaign.

According to a statement released by his campaign, O’Rourke raised $6.1 million in the first 24 hours of his campaign, smashing all other Democrats’ fundraising efforts.

Local media reports O’Rourke said it represents Americans coming “together to prove that it is possible to run a true grassroots campaign for president — a campaign by all of us for all of us that answers not to the PACs, corporations and special interests but to the people.”

O’Rourke exceeded the high water mark achieved by Vermont Senator and Democrat presidential candidate Bernie Sanders is the only candidate to come close to O’Rourke’s fundraising feat, having raised $5.9 million in the first 24 hours of his campaign.

Big League Politics reported at the time that Sanders had raised more during the crucial 24 hour period than any other Democrat candidate by a factor of millions. He is now joined by O’Rourke in raising more than virtually every other Democrat combined.

Big League Politics reported at the time:

Coming in second place is Sen. Kamala Harris, who raised $1.5 million in the first 24 hours of her campaign. In third place is Sen. Amy Klobuchar, who said she raised $1 million in the first 48 hours of her campaign.

Candidates scoring below Harris and Klobuchar in the fundraising challenge did not raise even $1 million in their first 24 hours, and some have not raised such a comparatively paltry sum since starting their campaigns.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren, for example, raised a mere $299,000 in the first 24 hours of her campaign, and while Julian Castro did not announce a 24 hour fundraising number, he raised only $220,000 in the first two weeks of his campaign.

Surprisingly, Venture For America founder Andrew Yang, who promises to provide Americans with a “universal basic income” should he be elected, also beat the better recognized Warren and Castro, raising over $350,000 since the start of his campaign.

While O’Rourke eked out the first place by at least $200,000, he and Sanders are clearly in a league of their own when it comes to fundraising efforts.

POLL: 15% of Sanders Supporters Plan to Vote For Donald Trump in November

They prefer Trump to an establishment Democrat.

Published

New polling from ABC suggests that Donald Trump is primed to win over a significant share of Bernie Sanders primary voters in the November general election, suggesting that some of Bernie’s Bros don’t intend to bend the knee to likely establishment Democratic nominee Joe Biden.

The poll reveals that 15% of self-identifying Bernie Sanders supporters already plan on voting for Trump in November. President Trump ultimately ended up winning the votes of 12% of 2016 Sanders supporters, suggesting he’s increased his appeal to the democratic socialist’s supporters.

Some centrist Democrats have expressed their personal distaste of Sanders(and some Gabbard) supporters on account of their perceived unwillingness to vote for the Democratic nominee, forgetting that it’s the obligation of American political candidates to win the votes of citizens who chose to support their opponents in primaries.

While Trump and Sanders are on opposite ends of the American political spectrum, they could be compared in a sense that they’re both considered political populists. Trump’s policy positions on trade, some foreign policy, and American manufacturing are closer to the Sanders’ views than Joe Biden’s reheated neoliberal political program.

Perhaps even more significantly, the poll shows that Biden gauges the lowest ever recorded “enthusiasm level” for a Democratic Presidential nominee. A paltry 24% of likely Biden voters describe themselves as “very enthusiastic” to vote for him in November.

With a voter base that seems lethargic in an unprecedented fashion, it’s possible that Joe Biden could go down as the most “low energy” major Presidential candidate in recent American political history.

The poll’s general election survey reveals a tight contest between Biden and Trump, with the former Vice President leading within the margin of error by 49% to 47%. Trump’s polling has improved significantly in recent weeks in ABC’s surveys, in part because of high public approval of the federal response to the Chinese coronavirus epidemic.

Biden seems to have largely disappeared from the national conversation in the wake of the historical epidemic, only sparsely appearing on public broadcasts in bizarre gaffe-filled livestreams from a converted recreation room in his Delaware home.
