A Party In Crisis – Anti Trump Approach and Identity Politics Collapsing Democrat Party Support…

If you are only listening to corporate media presentations you would be left thinking the political strategy of Democrats against President Trump is working.

Except you would be wrong.

VERY wrong.

While the overwhelming majority of corporate media punditry and opinion broadcasts paint a picture of President Trump and the larger republican/deplorable party in retreat, the actual data, outside the influence of media, shows a completely divergent truth.

The Democrats are in serious trouble; and it’s only getting worse.

The latest self-admissions by the larger American electorate on Party Affiliation show the number of people identifying as Democrat has slipped to 28%.  That matches the lowest number of registered democrats recorded in the past decade.

For comparison, in November 2016, just before the presidential election, the number of registered voters identifying as Democrat was 31%.  Conversely the number of registered voters identifying as Republican is also 28%.  However, that’s actually an increase of one point from November when the number was 27%.

However, party affiliation only represents one small part of the data dynamic.

A larger, and significantly more consequential data point, is the amount of money being raised by Democrats and Republicans.  One would think, against the backdrop of the narrative pushed by the media, that Democrats would be swimming in anti-Trump cash.

Except they are not.

Not even close.

Politico recently sounded the alarm noting that contributions to the Democrat party are half of the amount taken in by the Republican party:

[…] The party has a serious fundraising crisis.

Over the first six months of 2017, the Republican National Committee pulled in $75 million—nearly twice as much money as the Democratic National Committee, which raised $38 million.

The predicament isn’t simply that there is a funding gap between the parties; it’s what kind of money they attract. Republicans have quietly taken a decisive edge over Democrats when it comes to small-dollar fundraising.

During that same six-month time span, the RNC raised $33 million in small contributions—money from people who donate $200 or less over an election cycle—while that same class of donors gave the DNC just $21 million.

This isn’t just about money. Small-dollar donors are an important measure of how much grass-roots enthusiasm a campaign or organization has.

They are the supporters who will show up to knock on doors, make phone calls and get out the vote. And since they don’t donate enough to reach campaigns’ individual contribution limits, you can return to ask them for money time and again—which frees campaigns from continually being on the hunt for new, deep-pocketed donors who can max out.

The lack of their support threatens to prevent major gains by the party in 2018 and beyond. (link)

Additionally, the significance of the “small donor” contribution disparity is much more consequential than the semi-white-washed Politico analysis.

You might remember our calling attention to the “Record Breaking” small donor fundraising that Candidate Donald Trump achieved in the 2016 election.

The number of the small donors was so seismic in shift to the history of the RNC it actually became the inflection point where Chairman Reince Priebus and Communications Head Sean Spicer realized candidate Trump was the future.  The majority future.

Data is power; and the scale of the small donor list generated by candidate Trump was like nothing the Republican party had seen in the entire history of the Republican party.  And, even more stunningly, Donald Trump had achieved this feat in only a few short months.

As an example, in June 2016 Presidential Candidate Donald Trump had over 400,000 SMALL DONOR contributions IN A SINGLE MONTH.  That’s 400,000 people each giving under $200.  Bigly.  Candidate Trump, now President Trump, gained more small donors in a few short months than the entire Republican party had assembled in the past eight years (four election cycles) COMBINED.

According to the latest financial data as provided by Politico, not exactly a right-wing-spin-machine, despite the constant, daily, 24/7 barrage of attacks against President Trump, the scale of support is still just as strong.

Trump Strong.

How does that factual data square against the media narrative?  Short answer, it doesn’t. It doesn’t because the media narrative is what’s false.  The narrative is what’s subjective and therefore subjective to the corporate media spin.

A way to explain to your friends and family.

Think of yourself taking your small circle of friends to an empty football stadium.  While they take a seat you walk out to the middle of the field and place a dime on the 50-yard-line.  Upon return to your seat you turn to your friends and say:

“you see that dime on the fifty yard line?  That represents the entirety of the corporate media who tell you what is going on.”

“You see the scale of the rest of the field in comparison to that dime?  Well, that’s the scale of the consuming pubic who have access to alternate media resources, beyond those espoused by voices represented under the media’s dime.”

“Now can you see how perspectives from under the media dime can be so out of touch with the reality of the geography?”

“Dear Mitch and Paul,”…

    Thank you Sundance for this information. But even with more money in the political process, raised for the repubs, can we really expect a defeat of a Governor Cuomo or Governor MaCaullife in the next election cycle? My heart has become dry of such hope.

        Moonbeam should not have won 3rd and 4th term re-elections so easily, not after ineptly running Oakland further into an abyss. The fault lies in the California GOPe which spoke about Conservative ideals but always governed like moderate Democrats.

        Remember the CA GOPe DIDN’T EVEN BOTHER TO RUN A CANDIDATE FOR THE US SENATE SEAT OF BARBARA BOXER so we had TWO Democrats run as a choice for her seat! Don’t you think that was odd?

        Also remember the State GOPe didn’t even try to support Donald Trump!

            Scrapiron, it wasn’t always like that… when I was a child in the 1980’s you could go to San Francisco City Hall and feel generally safe, I remember having school field trips there.

            Today, near the Main Library are groups of how can I say delicately… “junkies”. And on the grassy mall area atr City Hall you’ll find the same caliber of individuals in various states of consciousness (less so than the average Libtard).

            Believe it or not 50+ years ago (before my time) San Francisco was Conservative like much of California. This is what happens when you don’t challenge the left and this is the challenge the whole country is facing. The Left is acting unhinged and insane because for the first time someone is actually really fighting them and not backing down, President Trump!

          You guys are so busy analyzing each California race that you are missing the hippopotamus sitting in the room. California is rife with voter fraud and machine cheating. Sure the state is Liberal, but you would have a larger sampling of Repubs than you do now. The worst kind of cheating is the rigged voter machines.
          I used to live in SF and remember the city was voting on changing the name of Army Street to Caesar Chavez. This bill was very unpopular and meant that thousands of businesses would have to get new stationary, etc. At 11pm referendum was 57% NO was ahead. Then the machines broke down and had to be “restarted” about an hour later. Then the resolution was 55% YES was ahead. Anybody with two brain cells left knew what was going on. This is a small example of what is going on there – this was 1990 and things have gotten a whole lot worse.
          The Left has complete control of the State, cities and most counties. Until there is a thorough audit of CA’s voting system, things will never get better.

      In the end, elections are just a game, a theater. What really matters is who controls the mob (as in the vast number of common people) and also who has the loyalty of the legions.
      Who has that? The Dems and their supporters are trying to bring about a coup (and with it their socialist utopia) — is it working, really? The GOP and their supporters are trying to return things to the way they were (and in the process flipping the bird at the American people — they will not work with Trump even if their voters mandate them to because they don’t want to). Is it really working? Time will tell on both.
      These are two forms of aggression…and they are directed at Trump, but in reality at the American people themselves….usually unrepentant, unrelenting aggression is met with growing resistance…
      Now, it depends upon what you hope for, but I’m pretty sure that if your hope is to see America not just sit back and take this, then do not fear for your hopes. The outcome nobody can tell.

    Here in Virginia my Democratic friends are having a hard time wrapping their head around the strategy of their corrupt governor, in the home of Never trump, who released their prisoners and Illegal immigrants to steal the election. Apparently the VA government sponsored out of state KKK, Nazi, and Racists protesters to be attacked by Domestic Terrorist in a violent confrontation and gave law enforcement a stand down order, that lead death and destruction, in this Confederate State. They condemned the Nazi and KKK protesters while singing the praise of the terrorists allowing them to destroy the history of the State of Virginia, while law enforcement stand down. President Trump condemns both sides of this hatred and with a passionate statement calls for love and healing to unite America. Governor says NO, this violence must continue to prove that President Trump is morally corrupt.
