The 2020 Democratic candidates made their big push for donations at the end of September, and Joe Biden’s haul doesn’t look very impressive. It doesn’t help that in many polls he’s now trailing Elizabeth Warren, but is this a sign that the enthusiasm, limited as it was, over his entry into the race is waning as well?
Biden reportedly pulled in $15 million over the quarter, putting him significantly behind Bernie Sanders.
NEWS: Joe Biden announced his campaign raised $15 million in the third quarter at a fundraiser in Palo Alto. That number puts him $10 million behind Sanders and $4 million behind Buttigieg. Warren has yet to announce her fundraising totals. https://t.co/XzHN7Xa2GH

BREAKING: Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden has announced that his campaign raised $15 million during the third quarter
Trump and the RNC raised $125+ million.

And $110,000,000 behind Trump fundraising for the same period.

He couldn't outraise @PeteButtigieg? that isn't good.. Warren is going to be in Bernie territory so Biden is going to be 4th.

Still have yet to meet a single person under 45 who has Biden as their first choice…

Yikes, that’s not great.
We should also remember that Trump raised $125 million this quarter, so he’s significantly ahead of all Democrats combined. Dollars matter. Give what you can, even if it’s small.

Bet most would like it back. Quid pro quo Joe has zero chance of being president.

So the “front runner” has raised markedly less money than other candidates. Huh.
