Trump is Killing It With Small-Dollar Campaign Donations

This week, Rep. Al Green (D-TX) suggested on MSNBC that there was a good reason to pursue impeachment against President Trump, even if he will ultimately be exonerated in the Senate. Green, who has been pushing for impeachment since the first day of Trump’s presidency, said that once Trump has been impeached in the House, he will be radioactive to the wealthy campaign donors who were once willing to spend millions to support him.

Now, putting aside the smarminess that is Green admitting that impeachment is nothing more than a political ploy, you have to wonder how sound that strategy really is. For one, we kind of doubt that wealthy Republican donors will be put off by an obvious witch-hunt-style impeachment by the Democrats. Second, if you take a look at the latest Federal Election Commission figures, it doesn’t appear that Trump is relying all that much on the rich and powerful.

From Fox News:

Sixty-one percent of money raised directly by the Trump campaign this election cycle came from small donors (donations under $200), according to Federal Election Commission figures.

That is similar to the proportion Trump raised during the 2016 election cycle, when 65 percent of donations were under $200. And this is dramatically higher than previous Republican nominees. Mitt Romney raised 26 percent of his direct contributions from small donations in 2012, and John McCain raised 25 percent from small donations in 2008.

Campaign finance analysts say the data indicates grassroots enthusiasm for Trump’s populist message.

“Democrats have traditionally been the party that has benefited the most from cultivating a small donor base,” Alex Baumgart, individual contributions researcher at the Center for Responsive Politics, which runs the donation database OpenSecrets.com, told Fox News.

Not only is Trump destroying previous Republicans when it comes to garnering small-dollar donations, he’s absolutely crushing the Democratic field. Despite everything you may hear about all the “momentum” belonging to the left as we head into the 2020 elections, a simply comparison of monetary figures belies the truth. Trump has raised more than all five top Democratic contenders put together.

Now granted, someone on the left could catch fire one of these days and really take off. But until that day comes, Trump is running away with this thing. His rallies are jam-packed arenas, full of enthusiasm and passion; the Democrats are playing to half-empty fairground sets in Cornhusk, Iowa. He’s got the money, he’s got the grassroots, and he’s got the biggest social media following in politics. Tell us how this ends with a Trump loss next November?

We know, we know: Don’t get cocky.

But things are looking very, very good.
