Democrats are increasingly worried by the spending chasm between the two sides and its implications for 2020.
Donald Trump and the Republican National Committee have raised more than $300 million this year for his reelection more than any other sitting president in history at this point in the campaign.
Trump has nearly twice as much cash on hand $158 million, between his campaign account and the RNC as Barack Obama and the Democratic National Committee had at this time in his successful re-election run.
Already this year, Trumps campaign operation has spent close to $23 million on TV and digital advertising, more than 10 times the amount that the lone major Democratic super PAC spending against him, Priorities USA, has laid out so far in its online-only spending campaign. Story Continued Below
Democrats are growing increasingly alarmed by the spending chasm between the two sides and its implications for the general election.
The resources he has will be put to work anywhere and everywhere that he feels like he can scare up electoral votes, and Democrats will never catch up. Its just too much money, said Chris Lippincott, a Texas-based Democratic strategist who ran a super PAC opposing Sen. Ted Cruz last year. Thats real trouble Im not here to curse the dark, but its dark.
And the situation stands to get worse.

Democrats can go screw themselves. There’s going to be a tidal wave in favor of Trump.
More money doesnt necessarily make Trump,more effective.
It cant hurt, though.
But more to the point, it sends a powerful message about the Presidents political strength - thats what has the Democrats worried.
He doesnt need the money for several reasons: 1) hes rich. 2) he is a master at getting free press. 3) he has honed his campaign rallies into the perfect campaign venues - while his opponents do poorly attended town halls, he knocks his rock star level performances out of the park every single time.
But the fact that he can raise so much cash so easily means his message is getting out, and that its well received.
This is very good news.
The Beatles vs. Gerry and the Pacemakers.
More like the Beatles vs Tiny Tim
People are donating to him because they like his policies. These policies make them successful, so they would like to see the policies continued. In short, Trump has the money because he’s helped ensure we have the money.
Timing is everything.
Agree on all points.
Don’t worry the Democrats use their Debit card fraud to get millions from foreigners!!!
I think there are tens of millions of people out there like me who just cant wait for November 2020 to finally come, so they can vote for President Trump.
But they are forced to wait. All they can do in the meantime is contribute money, so they do that.
This may be shaping up to be an epic landslide.
Its the Trumps rallies that are really priceless. He gets 20k people at a rally get the Trump message, who network with another 100k people.... plus (some) tv coverage.
The more the democrats try to take away my vote, the more I keep donating to Trump. Not the RNC, BUT TRUMP. At the rate they are going, this is just a drop in the bucket.
The democrats are Trumps money machine.
They wouldn’t think it “too much” if it were in their coffers.
Actually, yes it does. The RNC filled in the holes in the GOTV effort because Trump did not have much money. Now Trump’s campaign is paying many workers to register voters this year and building an infrastructure to get voters to the polls. In 2016 Trump could only hope they would show up. In 2020, they will have an organization that will make sure they show up.
Landslide? No. This is a 50/50 country and is still a 50/50 country. It will be close once again.
...this is something the Marxists cant Rig!
But watch as they turn it into an impeachable offense.
Waiting for doxxing of all DJT contributors and removing all their ability to participate in society. Once they accomplish that, charges will be brought and all those prisons that are being emptied will be filled.
T the great won last time with 160m this time a fantastic record and 1.6 bill. I think he will win nj
