Donald Trump, very hated guy, but smashes Obama’s record, more then doubling it.

So how did a very hated guy with Impeachment talk going on right now who apparently is doing poorly in Polling numbers do this? Is there an unaccounted for support not in data?

And what does this mean, bad news or good depending on your political affiliation?

I'll literally laugh my ass off come 1/11 he if leaves the WH....in handcuffs
Only way he's leaving office in handcuffs is if the loser Demonrats in the House make it illegal to win so much. Trump 2020 - Oh, it's going to happen!!!

I hope the Demonrats keep up this impeachment BS as it's only making Trump's 2020 win more of a reality. Every time someone mentions impeachment, Trump gets another million in donations.

--------------------- MERGED ---------------------------

My guess is that the rich elite is all too happy with their tax cuts.
Yeah, because the rich elites waste their time making thousands of donations under $200.

Trump campaign's small-dollar donations surge, marking major shift for GOP

The Republican Party has long been panned by its detractors as the party of big money and big donors -- but donation patterns have changed measurably under President Trump, a Fox News analysis of campaign finance data shows.

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.

i'm sure there is no statue of limitations of some of the said crimes so even in 2024 i'm sure durring those 4 years they will even get a hold on his irs records and i wouldn't be supprised if tax fraud would be charged the minute he leaves office he cant stay in office forever (legally) so ether way he's gonig to prison wether 2020 or 2024

At this point I wouldn't be at all surprised to find out he's been torpedoing his own chances of winning on purpose so that he can pocket the donations from all these rubes. To that same end, I'm sure he'll be spending as little of this money as possible on the actual campaign.

. Are you talking about the Clintons, the Bidens, or Adam Schiff? It's so hard to keep track of which corrupt Democrat is in the news on a daily basis.

I never heard of torpedoing yourself to make your chances of winning increase. Will Trump ever stop findings ways to amaze us? I think not. Also, he doesn't need to spend any of his campaign funds as the Democrats are using their funds and promises of socialism to campaign for him to win in 2020.

He said, as Trump's approval rating continued to fall
you're still not looking at those untrustworthy polls again, are you?

support for impeachment continued to rise.
Hey, if his donations increase the more impeachment support increases, why not go for it? It's not like he committed any crimes that would give a case for impeachment (unless you listen to Adam Schiff and his made up transcripts and coached whistle blowers whose complaint form he filled out).

Does anyone have on hand what the combined efforts of the democratic primary are in Q3? I found this in an image search on NYT but its behind a subscription. So I'm not going to bother linking the site. I couldn't find anything on Biden or Warren Q3. I guess I can link their Q2...

$21.5 million - Biden Q2

$19.1 million - Warren Q2.

Also isn't that RNC and Trump. So is that for every congressional and Trump? Anyone have more information?

If Q2 biden and Warren were similar to Q3 and you add all the other Q3 raising of the candidates listed above we are at 114.7 million. This isn't that big of a gap. I'll keep an eye out for the official Q3 for other candidates.

Well when you have been fund raising since the second he got "" quote on quote elected mainly so he can escape legal litigation against him for all the elegal things his done so far not to mention been in the pocket of russians and every special interest known to man; he should have been at 300 million by now, so ill give him a very underwhelming performance scire so far

for him to throw out the word treason makes him a damn hypocrite (since he did threatened and probably inspired his base to start a civil war if removed that IS TREASON by definition of the US constitution it states Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them , or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court. and note Twitter gave him lots of witnesses not just two but thousands

also



Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States. so it's not looking good for trump after he's out of office he should keep his fat mouth shut sometimes or to conciquences could be dire including death row

As the commander in chief, Trump has the obligation of any enlisted service member such as stated in the oath, "I, _____, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic;"

No greater enemies to our constitution than the treasonous Democrats in Congress, those running for president that want to take away our 2nd amendment rights and make us a socialist country, or the lying lame stream media.

Woah there, that's a strong projection. How about we stick to things that are rooted in reality. No service member is going to go against their own government or their people. Trump is a president, one of many. He has his era and another will come in his place. I understand many just finally started 'following politics' for the first time in their lives but our republic isn't going to just implode because someone tweets out 'coup' and 'treason'. No matter how infantile it may seem on a global view.

I know this seems like a good game of football and we can hold up our signs of our favorite team but this is just a blip in history. In a couple of weeks republicans will make their decision to stand for or against Trump's actions.

Democrats and republicans will then hold elections. Pendulum will swing back and forth because ultimately America is like a teenager riddled with identity issues.

If you have actual friends and family that have served overseas take some time to talk to them. This is a really out of touch comment to make on their behalf. I'm not seeking to belittle or admonish but to assist you to look broader than the immediate here and now.

What? Maybe, you should try not looking at things so broadly as you didn't seem to understand where I was coming from or where I was going. I must say that you chose your user name well.
