MAGA Movement – 2017 Republican Party Raises Record Small Donor Contributions…

In a 90-day period back in 2016 a new political record of 2.1 million small donors signed up to support presidential candidate Donald J Trump.  This represented the largest single quarter assembly of small donors from either political party in U.S. history.  REMINDER:

(Via Politico 2016)  Donald Trump has unleashed an unprecedented deluge of small-dollar donations for the GOP, and one that Republican Party elders have dreamed about finding for much of the last decade as they’ve watched a succession of Democrats — Barack Obama, Bernie Sanders and, to a lesser extent, Hillary Clinton — develop formidable fundraising operations, $5, $10 and $20 at a time.

Trump has only been actively soliciting cash for a few months, but when he reveals his campaign’s financials later this week they will show he has crushed the total haul from small-dollar donors of the last two Republican nominees, John McCain and Mitt Romney — during the entirety of their campaigns. (read more)

That was the moment when Party Chairman Reince Priebus realized the future of the modern Republican party was Trump’s.  Indeed MAGA was larger than the GOP, and both Priebus and Sean Spicer recognized the Trump Train was not stopping; they were ‘all in’.

The scale of the small donor support is critical because it shows the depth and width of the supportive base.  The donor list also becomes just as valuable as the contributions connected to it.   For comparison and context: the entire Clinton donor list from all years of campaigning by Bill and Hillary was 2.3 million donors.  Donald Trump gained 2.1 million donors in just 90 days during 2016.

That level of grassroots and small donor support for President Trump represented the Monster Vote; the previously unrecorded…. the MAGA Movement.  It continues today:

The Republican National Committee raised more than $100 million in the first nine months of 2017, marking the first time it has raised that much, that fast, in a non-presidential election year.

The record-breaking fundraising can be largely attributed to a flurry of small-dollar donors responding to fundraising appeals by the first Republican president in eight years, Donald Trump, according to a new report to be released later this week and obtained by McClatchy.

The numbers give Republicans a large cash advantage over Democrats as they look to retain control of both chambers of Congress in the midterm elections next year.

Last month, the RNC hired state directors in 17 states across the nation, including Florida, Missouri and North Carolina, as part of what the party says will be the most expansive midterm field program in its history.  (read more)

    Donations are important. What is more important is for people to vote out the incumbent RINOs in the primaries otherwise nothing changes. There’s only an average of 17% turnout in republican primaries. Low voter turnout usually favors the incumbent.

        RNC hired state directors in 17 states–how do we know if they are NeverTrump and/or Mitch’s people. RNC have to share these info with the donors. The donor should have the right to have some say in it. I want names of these directors for us all to look into.

        NeverTrumpers’ games are over. They will never fool us again. They may get away with it, but they will never convince us they are on our side. Never. it is O.V.E.R.

          Just for your info. When my wife was volunteering to support DJT in the New Hanover County, NC Republican headquarters, one of our senators, Tom Tillis, came in and gave a little “pep talk” to the volunteers. He said, and I quote, ” Mr. Trump is not the candidate that we wanted, but since he is now our candidate, we should support him.” One of her fellow workers said, “Mr. Tillis, I am a registered democrat and Mr. Trump is the only reason I am here. If you have and your Party have a problem with that, I am outta here right now.” Mr. Tillis said nothing, turned, and walked away. Never, ever forget who these people are and what they think of us.

They were lining up delegates even then, and will be doing that now for candidates. The pressure will be intense.

    The most exciting piece for me is that Ronna McDaniel is the head of the RNC. She is all in when it comes to our President. Every single penny that is spent has a purpose to it. It is to MAGA. I also love that Steve Wynn is the Treasurer. We have a real good chance of winning the Governor’s race in Virginia. That would be huge because the Democrats will win back NJ. Those are the only two Governor races in the upcoming election.

    The Establishment Republicans fear the power of our President’s fundraising. The other thing they hate is that Ronna will not spend a dime in a primary. That is a killer for people like Flake, Wicker, Heller etc. They don’t get to eat from that money.

    From the article linked above:

    The RNC had raised $93.3 million with $47.1 million cash on hand while the DNC raised $46.3 million and had $6.8 million cash on hand.

    Keep in mind that every donation that is made directly to our President, the RNC gets 20% of it. Ronna will go after the 13 Democrat seats in the Senate next year. Ten of those Democrat Senators come from States our President won. The other three are Maine (King), Virginia (Kaine) and NJ (Menendez if he is found innocent).

    We will pick off 6 to 8 of those seats and win with Ward and Tarkanian in AZ and NV!

      Just as important as the money is the data trend from last November up unti now in terms of Republican registered voters versus Democrat registered voters in those Senate races I mentioned above. The picture is becoming more and more a beautiful RED!

      https://bigleaguepolitics.com/data-blue-states-getting-redder-red-states-getting-redder/

      From the article linked above:

      October’s voter registration changes measured against last November continue to show Republican strength, almost across the board. Certainly in the “battleground” states, the Democrats are looking at a very bleak picture. A reminder that these are net changes—some states have seen voter registration increases, some decreases as rolls are purged—but the key is the net gain or loss of one party against the other. Also, keep in mind Virginia, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Texas and Georgia, to name a few, do not register by party so it is impossible to track the changes in those states. However, with that in mind . . . .

      *AZ Rs net +11,160
      Both parties gained, and the Republican edge was down slightly from last look, but still holding very strong. So much for Arizona “going purple.” If this rate of changes holds, Arizona Republicans could have a net gain of an additional 25,000 voters by election time in 2018.

      *FL Rs net +61,857 Since the election, Republicans have seen a net shift of nearly 62,000 in their direction. This represents a further net gain of about 6,000 since my last report, meaning that Republicans are gaining ground at the rate of about 6,000 per month. If this were to hold through 2020, Florida would be a Republican state.

      *IA Rs net +70,801 Democrats can pretty well forget about Iowa, a state Obama carried and George W. Bush lost. This massive level of change bodes extremely well for neighboring Wisconsin and Minnesota, where we cannot track these changes, but which have some of the same demographics.

      *NC Rs net +61,752 This is up another 1,000 since last month, and shows the Tar Heel State continues to turn back to the Republican Party as the Democrats are losing significant registrations. When combined with the 2016 3% black voting shortfall, North Carolina presents another bleak picture for the Democrats in the near future.

      *NM Rs net +12,975 New Mexico continues its Republican trend, up 165 over last month. But every month has shown steady net Republican gains. Given that there likely won’t be a Gary Johnson in the race in 2020, New Mexico is absolutely in the toss up column right now, and by 2020 could be lean Republican.

      *NV Rs net +8,338 Since the last report, Republicans gained another net 600. Yet another state where Republicans are slowly and steadily chipping away at the Democrat registration advantage, and another state where Johnson won’t be around to bail out the Democrat.

      And the biggie:
      *PA Rs net +109,101 Pennsylvania’s shocking march away from the Democrats is breathtaking: Democrats were down another 22,000 since last month and Republicans are surging. Once again, Pennsylvania’s numbers likely speak to Michigan.

      And, a reminder that in my last report, NH was R net +6,511 and ME was R net +1,201.

      In short, among the truly contested states in 2016, the only ray of hope for the Democrats is Colorado, and even there, the trends have flattened some. They have stabilized New Jersey and Delaware, but Republicans continue to gain significant ground in Arizona, New Mexico, Florida, North Carolina, Iowa, Nevada, and above all, Pennsylvania. If these trends continue through 2020, Florida would be have a slight Republican registration edge, North Carolina would be nearly even, and New Mexico would be close enough that it could never be taken for granted. Moreover, Pennsylvania and Iowa would be solid Trump states.

      The remarkable thing about the Republican trending states is that they have moved steadily ever since last November, in almost every case without a single break. Democrats continue to lose voters, and they are not becoming independents. All of this appears to be due to Trump and Trump alone, as the Republican Party has not offered any reasons to embrace it.

      “We have a real good chance of winning the Governor’s race in Virginia.”

      I hope so, but Ed Gillepsie has not fully embraced the Trump voter in Virginia, despite being warned by many conservatives. He teeters around the edges and seems like he is afraid of his own shadow. He is Establishment and it shows. He is known for this, and he frustrates many people. He was out fundraising with Bush this week in Northern Virginia though. That is a great way to gain the Trump voters – not.

      I hope that he asks to campaign with Trump in the last week of the campaign. If available, Trump would do it. The woman running for the Lt. Gov., Vogel, and the guy running for AG, Adams, both are Trump supporters and are not afraid to say so.

          Tidewater, Virginia here.

          Gillespie is exactly what’s wrong with the GOP in Virginia. (The Lt. Governor’s and Attorney General’s candidates are good people.)

          The Establishment has a stranglehold on the party and candidates chosen. This will be broken eventually, though it’s a toss-up on whether we’ll take the Governor’s race in November. If we fail, I think we’ll get rid of the Dems & at least some of the GOP-E in the next election cycle. The Trump voter base is really the “new” Republican Party – GOP-E just doesn’t know it yet.

          BTW, the problem for Virginia is Northern Virginia, bedroom community to DC where Obama made use of enormous expansion of government to turn NVA heavily blue. Until some of that fat bureaucracy is cut, it’s hard to have control of the state.

        We are working on that Ellen – we know what it takes as we have a long and large Congressional District and we know who most ot the establishment players are. The issue is money (CMR has a sizeable stipend from the RNC for the money she raises from lobbyists for them) and of course a good – electable candidate. We’ve learned lessons in the past and do have a candidate that is passionate, articulate with speaking and could win the hearts of the rural areas too. So yes, we are focused and working on that campaign as well as many others in our county and throughout the state.

        In fact, we have a bill in the state house right now, with 73% approval in a recent KXLY (ABC) News affiliate in Spokane. The poll was up only a short time and with nearly 8,000 votes, 73+% were for it. Leadership is one of the strongest state reps; a ‘Constitutional’ attorney, hailing from the 4th LD in Spokane County, of which I was the previous Republican District Leader. I’ve replaced myself 3 times while mentoring other like minded Trump conservatives; teaching the game, showing the history, and preparing for the future.

        My hope is that PDT will go after ALL those; House and Senate, who do not get on the agenda and start representing the people and not the lobbyists.

        The report in my original post is based upon Peter Sweitzer’s book ‘Extortion’ and ‘Open Secrets’ FOIA request on lobbyists activities in the Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) vote. CMR earned over $914k for her ‘Yea’ vote . . .

Beware of third parties who put up “conservatives” who draw votes away from the Republican party, if it allows Democrats to get the seats with a plurality that’s not a majority.

It was a long shot that paid off, for a time.

    I think the best way to cut out the RNC in the runup to the midterms is to get behind Bannon and the PAC’s that are being established to primary the incumbents. I know many dont like Bannon, but he is the only hope to get solid primary challengers to the RINOS and actually WIN.
    After the primaries are over go back to donating to Trump directly. The RNC is duty bound to help the incumbents, whether they like them or not, and Trump has give 20% of direct donations to them simply due to the fact that historically, the President had an interest in getting his incumbents re elected…which isnt the case currently, but the system is set up with that in mind…it was never considered that that the President and his own party would be at odds on almost every legislative issue…meaning no outsider was ever meant to crack the Uniparty wall and disrupt the corruption.
    Get behind Bannon for now donate to the PACs and candidates he runs, or every dollar you give is wasted…Trump doesnt need your money for 2 more years.

    Now if the GOP get behind Trump the party and most importantly nation will benefit big league. Never bought anything or donated ever before President Trump, just bought another hat(Halloween MAGA) still prefer going directly to POTUS. Have a great weekend all!

    Treepers, in all of your worthy efforts to strengthen and further the MAGA efforts of our Beloved Lion of a President, PLEASE don’t forget the UTTER NECESSITY of yourselves and this incredible blog-site. THERE IS NO ONE ELSE like Sundance and his Treepers.

    It is my privilege to study online during my off-hours and also to find worthwhile input from all over the web – but NOTHING COMPARES to The Last Refuge. Sundance and you guys are the REASON I understand… now… about the GOPe.

    TCTH is the ONLY reason that I have my current level of understanding and information about the cursed Uniparty and the collectivist concept of “globalism”. IT WAS HERE – at the feet of Sundance – in “Last Refuge University” – among truly WORTHY students and “assistant Professors” that my eyes have been more fully opened.

    I’m not sure exactly what I’m trying to say but, again, THERE IS NO ONE ELSE LIKE YOU! I sincerely believe this blog-community is VITALLY important to the MAGA phenomenon. I SO MUCH depend on all of you and I am MIGHTY grateful to be a tiny part of all of this. Only my Church is more important to me as a force for good.

    Maybe I’m trying to further open our own eyes about the significance of all that’s done here. We’re all needed and we all have something to contribute – even if it’s just cheerleading (my specialty).

    Here, is PRICELESS information, the actual “TRUTH” (insofar as that’s possible) and true INSIGHT regarding the inner-workings of machinations that have been hidden from most Americans for DECADES. So at least, let’s continue to find ways to sharpen each other’s iron and to lift each other up. Please continue in prayer for this AMAZING community and for our leaders. You ALL are of far more importance than you now understand.

    You (WE!) are the heroes for whom we’ve been longing. Wanna make history? We already ARE! Right here, RIGHT NOW – we already are.

    The GOP took in record amounts right after Trump was elected. Now their donations have fallen even though this article claims small donations are up (record level). I would qualify as a “small donor” since I can’t afford to purchase a Ryan, McCain or McConnell. I for one have stopped contributing because:

    Even when the Democrats lose, they win, because there is no opposition party (see repeal and replace)

    Even though McCain, Murkowski and Collins are as opposed to the president as Pelosi, Schumer or Tim Kaine, they still have their perks as Republicans — committee memberships, chairs, etc. No penalty. (When a Democrat steps out of line, the leadership lands on him/her like a duck on a June bug which is the reason they vote en bloc)

    Paul Ryan

    When PDJT runs again I will contribute again. Not until. I’m a RINO. I joined the GOP for one reason — to prevent the GOP from screwing over DJT the way they did Newt Gingrich in 2012. When Trump is gone, so am I.

      We need to separate the message from the man. President Trumps message is what needs to persevere and he would be the first one to tell you that. We need to always support his MAGA platform and the people who believe in it like us fellow treepers.
      He won’t be here to be our beacon shining light on the corruption forever but I pray his message will always be with us in our hearts.

    RNC is raising money by making the public think contributions are going to President Trump when actually the money is going to the RNC. Example: enter a contest to have dinner with the President. I only contribute to our President via his website.

    I don’t and will NEVER trust the R’s with a super majority.

      I would prefer it to a super minority. The voters will replace non-performers with representatives who will fulfill their vows or we will have failed in our great self-government experiment. We have been at it since the Mayflower Compact and I think the 2016 election is the beginning of The Great Restoration.

    Small donors is the dirty little secret the Establishment does not want to talk about. They want everyone to believe that you must spend massive amounts of money to win a political campaign because that is how the consultants make their money.
    The reality is that if you want to know who is winning an election you look at small donors because that translates directly to who is motivating people to vote in November.
    Mitt Romney was great a sucking up and spend huge amounts of special interest cash, but Jane and John Doe were not motivated to spend effort and treasure on him. He was getting creamed by Obama when compared to Obama in regards to small donors. The same with Hillary Clinton.

    Think of it this way: Thousand dollar bills do not vote in November, five dollar bills do.
