This is gearing up to be the 5 billion dollar election. After the vote passed on 2002 for the ability for 'soft money' to come from big corporations
the last 2 elections seemed to be spend it and win it. Seems that is turned upside down this year.
In 1st place is Jeb Bush and has raised over 125,000,000 dollars with the majority coming from PAC's. He currently polls at about 3%.
In 12th place in fundraising is Donald Trump, with about 6,000,000 raised with less than 3.7 million coming from unsolicited donations. No PACS. He
is currently polling at over 35% which is more than twice as much as the 3rd highest donation receiver Ted Cruz.
This shows that money is not the major influence in this election currently. Jeb is pouring millions to smear the leader and each time he does, the
opposition all climbs in the polls.
It will be interesting to watch in the next 3 months where all of the money will go and who will be backed. Major backers seem to be moving away from
Jeb and some even suggesting that they will back a Democrat instead of promoting their own ideals. It is showing that those who want to control the
country are using the money but it is not working.
My question is, if someone gave you a check for 100 dollars and said choose a candidate, where would you send it?
