The Democrats are a dying party, if dismal fundraising numbers and lackluster debate ratings are any indication of what the American people really want.
In the middle of the Wednesday MSNBC-hosted Democrat debate – which brought in the lowest ratings to date for the debates so far – the DNC dropped their campaign finance report.
And, it looks grim.
According to the report, after the month of October the DNC had $8.7M on hand but $7M in debt!
That’s compared to the RNC, which says it had $61.4M during the same period and ZERO debt!
$25.3M was raised by Republicans versus Democrats’ $9 million during October, as well.
Take a look at the breaking tell-tale numbers that everyone’s talking about on Twitter:
Ex-WH press secretary Sean Spicer says that the DNC is "effectively bankrupt":
The Washington Examiner has more details on the DNC's dismal fundraising funds:
The Democratic National Committee has $8.7 million on hand and $7 million in debt, according to its October Federal Election Commission campaign finance report.
The DNC's fundraising figures are likely to be a fraction of what Republicans have raised as President Trump seeks reelection. The Republican National Committee told the Washington Examiner on Wednesday that it has $61.4 million on hand and $0 in debt.
The RNC raised $25.3 million in October, nearly three times as much as the Democrats who raised $9 million. Furthermore the RNC has raised $194 million in 2019 so far with the DNC raising less than half of that, at $75.5 million.
The folks over at The Daily Wire compared the DNC's terrible fundraising to the RNC and Trump's record-smashing donations:
In the middle of the fifth 2020 Democratic presidential primary debate Wednesday night, the Democratic National Committee’s October fundraising numbers were revealed online — and they weren’t good.
“The DNC reported less than $8.7 million cash on hand and over $7 million debt in an FEC report released Wednesday,” The Daily Caller’s William Davis reported Wednesday, along with a post providing an image of the “disappointing” October filing.
The filing shows the DNC ending the month with $8,749,032.47 in cash on hand and $7,048,710.14 in unpaid bills. T’he document also shows that the Democrats have pulled in just over $50 million from individual for the entire election cycle.
The rather grim figures come amid record-breaking numbers from Republicans and President Trump. In the third quarter of this year, Trump and the Republican National Committee brought in $125 million.
“The Trump 2020 campaign’s fundraising arm said Tuesday that it has raised more than $308 million in 2019 and has more than $156 million in the bank,” Fox News reported in early October. For context, Fox notes that former President Obama and the DNC raised just over $70 million in the third quarter of 2011, the year before his re-election year.
Among the reasons the RNC says they’ve been so successful are Trump’s campaign efforts and the Democrats’ aggressive attacks on Trump. The latter, said RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel, is inspiring Trump’s supporters to be generous in their giving.
Mediaite also commented on the low ratings that the Wednesday Dem debate turned out:
Chalk it up to presidential debate fatigue, broader political fatigue, or post-impeachment hearing fatigue, but Wednesday night’s Democratic presidential primary debate hosted by MSNBC earned the lowest ratings of the seven debates this year.
According to early Nielsen numbers, more than 6.5 million viewers tuned in to watch the November 20th debate in Atlanta, including 1.6 million in the advertiser coveted 25-54 demo. That’s a lot of viewers. But it’s a marked downturn from the 8.5 million viewers that CNN earned from the October 15th debate, with 2.4 million from the target 25-54 demo.
