It's because Trump's supporters spent all their money on TRUMP WON flags and Trump himself is one more losing scratch-off ticket away from auctioning off handjobs purportedly from Ivanka but that hand has Eric written all over it. Literally.

I wish them all the best of luck in their Primaries, and bitter defeat in the General.

Confusion, chaos, and ruin to the lot of them.

Not sure how much money actually matters past a certain point.

For the Presidency, definitely.  Romney outraised Obama considerably in 2012, and he still got his ass handed to him.

For the House, Senate and State elections?  It makes all the difference.

I'm willing to bet a lot of fat cat Republican donors realize now that Trump is actually bad for business.

You need somewhat of a "functioning Democracy" to stay a robber baron-type kleptocrat.

Trump will gladly turn the country into a burning parking lot if he gets to rule the ashes.

TommyDeuce: I wish them all the best of luck in their Primaries, and bitter defeat in the General.


I'm torn.

I want them to win their primaries, to show the other Republican donners the cooks can't win.

I'd prefer them to loose their elections to advance more of the social contract ideals the left leaning Democrats have.  But not at the cost of Republican donners saying "well, we can't win in the general elections with moderates, we may as well support the cooks next time."

Because now that the MAGAts have been exposed for what they are, there is not going back for them.  Its now win or die because they can't back down.

She still needs to be voted out.

It's not that a give a damn about Liz Cheney herself, but I want the rest of the GQP to watch these guys raise more money than their opponents who TFG supports. This will make them rethink the myth that they need him.

Dollars are a form of support, and American elections are just marketing projects.

Anyway - Trump opponents have jobs, and money to contribute.
Trump supporters mostly have shiatty trailers and broke-down pickups.

They're all traitors and unless they send 20% up to the Trump Super PAC and schedule dinners at Mar-a-Largo, he'll unleash the fury of his un-endorsements.   Just hand over the cash.   Enough cash and he'll let you use the word T**** once in a mailing.  The rubes eat that up.   T**** brings the rubes in to vote.

Well, in America, the answer is usually "more than it should". But it's not a guarantee of anything - especially not these days.

"Past" is a key word here. Remember EMILY- Early Money Is Like Yeast. The sooner a candidate can establish themselves as a viable contender, the better their odds become.

It's far better to have a more modest war chest early than to have a massive amount, but closer to the election.

In the primary? A trump endorsement would probably mean more than 10 million in donations in 90% of GOP primaries.

That's not exactly true.

The cadre of anti-American dipshiats stand with Trump. That's all.

It's a shame that Hudson is primarily known for these silly romantic comedies with Doris Day (I mean, besides the being gay and dying of AIDS things). There's nothing wrong with those flicks, really, but the Sirk melodramas with Jane Wyden are much better, and nothing tops his performance in Frankenheimer's tragically-overlooked film Seconds.

May all the people who ever supported or enabled trump in anyway have a moment of lucidity where they realize exactly the type of piece of human trash he is, and how stupid they were to have ever supported him in any way. Hopefully on their death bed so they can do nothing about it and die knowing history will revile them as much as I do now. I also hope their deaths are painful too.

2021-10-18 2:47:32 PM  
Counting on Trump supporters to donate to anyone but Trump is a YUGE mistake. Expecting Trump to help you out with some the cash donated to him is a complete non-starter.

Either one of those misspellings would have been mildly amusing on its own, but getting "donner" and "cooks" in the same sentence was really next-level. Kudos.

Lord Putin: Why do all of these nerds use their limited disposable income on this drek?


They don't. It is dark money and this crap:

Max Miller, the Republican endorsed by Trump to take on Gonzalez, brought in more $695,000 during the third quarter, $500,000 of which came in the form a personal loan from Miller.

Just a reminder: He lost the popular vote both times and never polled at 50%. So no, his popularity is very overblown.
