(National Sentinel)Â Campaign finances: It’s hard to mount successful political campaigns in today’s America when you’re broke — and the Democrats areÂ broke.
As reported byÂ The Gateway Pundit, a new Federal Election Commission report notes that the party’s down millions upon millions of dollars since the November elections:
Under the leadership of former Obama official Tom Perez, a new FEC report reveals the DNC finished the month of June $3.3 million in debt.Â
Theyâ€™re broke. Just like their policies.
That ledÂ The ObserverÂ to reportÂ that the Democrats are not just broke, but unpopular as well:
DNCÂ ChairÂ Tom PerezÂ recently sent out a fundraising email to supporters claiming, â€œI know garbage when I see it,â€ citing that he once worked on a dump truck. Itâ€™s ironic that he referred to the GOP health care bill as a â€œflaming dumpster fireâ€ because he has been presiding over the disaster that is the Democratic National Committee. TheÂ organizationÂ reportedÂ that May 2017 was its worst fundraising month since the Iraq War in 2003, and April 2017 was its worst fundraising month since 2009. In May, theÂ DNCÂ also reported that it has $1.9 million in debt. Despite the fact that former Secretary of Labor Tom Perez was recruited byÂ BarackÂ ObamaÂ to appease the partyâ€™s donors, lobbyists and PACs, even they have refused to prop up the failing brand.
Not approving of the strategies laid out at a retreat for donors in January 2017, billionaires Mark Pincus and Reid HoffmanÂ started their ownÂ political organization, Win the Future. As donors are increasingly tired of seeing their investments go to waste, many have started their own funds or used their access to take over leadership positions themselvesâ€”such as Florida billionaire donorÂ Stephen BittelÂ did to become the Florida Democratic Party chair earlier this year. Democratic billionaire J.B. Pritzker isÂ runningÂ for governor of Illinois, and billionaireÂ Tom SteyerÂ is debating running for governor of California. Haim Saban and James Simons poured millions into Hillary Clintonâ€™s presidential campaign, but they have yet to be listed by the FEC asÂ DNCÂ donors in 2017. Additionally, George Soros hasÂ only givenÂ $33,900 to theÂ DNCÂ in 2017, but he poured millions of dollars into theÂ Democratic PartyÂ in 2016.
By comparison, the GOP is having great luck fundraising, having taken in more than $13 million in June,Â The Hill reported.
Granted, we’ve not been very impressed with the GOP Congress’ first six months under Trump, owning both lawmaking-branches of government. But there is obviously much more confidence among the electorate for Republican-Trump leadership than there is for the Democratic Party, whose leaders have done all they can to divide Americans into groups and subgroups, all aggrieved and all who are pissed off at their country (and Trump) forÂ some reason.
Obviously that’s not a winning strategy, but frankly, we encourage the DNC to continue it anyway. We love it when Democrats lose.
