Romney, RNC raise $170 million in September

posted at 4:01 pm on October 15, 2012 by Erika Johnsen

Team Obama and the Democrats seemed pretty pleased with their impressive $181 million fundraising total for the month of September, and particularly proud that 98 percent of their campaign donations were raised through smaller donations of $250 or less. The Romney campaign released their own September fundraising totals in an e-mail this afternoon, and it looks like they’re not doing too shabbily themselves:

Today, Romney for President, Romney Victory, and the Republican National Committee announced fundraising totals of over $170.4 million in September. The campaign, RNC and state party participants have approximately $191 million cash on hand. …

FAST FACTS About Romney For President, Romney Victory, and RNC Fundraising:

·         Over $170.48 Million Raised In September

·         93.1% Of All Donations Received In September Were $250 Or Less

·         $43.15 Million Raised By Donations Under $250 In September

·         1,011,773 Donations Received Under $250 In September

·         Approximately $191.23 Million Cash On Hand

·         Contributions Received From All 50 States And Washington, D.C.

With only three weeks left to go, both camps will surely be burning through their cash stores with down-to-the-wire ad blitzes and campaigning, so get excited for that. Romney blowing Obama out of the water during the first presidential debate at the start of October certainly won’t be a detriment to any last-minute fundraising efforts for the month and will probably prove to have been a catalyst for any unsure potential donors to get crackin’, so I wouldn’t be surprised if the money just keeps on rolling in — especially if Romney can deliver another knockout performance this Tuesday night in New York.

Addendum — Yep:

Screw that and look at this:

12 Swing States Likely Voters:
Romney—-51
Obama—–46

Among women:
Romney—-48
Obama—–48

Among men:
Romney—-54
Obama—–42

38 Non-Swing States and DC Likely Voters:
Romney—-49
Obama—–47

Among women:
Obama—–52
Romney—-44

Among men:
Romney—-54
Obama—–42

“Female voters are a critical part of the president’s coalition. Four years ago, he led Republican rival John McCain by a single point among men, according to surveys of voters as they left polling places. The decisive Democratic margin of victory came from women, who supported Obama by 13 points.

Now, the USA TODAY/Gallup Poll shows Romney leading Obama 51%-46% among likely voters in the swing states. Men who are likely voters back him 54%-42%. The states are Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin.”

If this is anywhere near reality, this election is over.

To be fair to Obama, I’m pretty sure most foreigners support his weak america, much more than they would Romney’s Strong America. So, I doubt Romney would have beaten him if he’d gone gone illegal too.

Obama is just trying to raise money from his biggest supporters and constituents – The Enemies of the United States of America. can’t fault a guy for knowing upon which side his bread is buttered.

That is excellent news indeed. I did not expect Romney fundraising in September to top $ 100 millions because of the demoralization campaign of lies and very biased polls (still going on) that Obama and his media has been doing in particular during September. The great news is that our side was never demoralized despite these attempts and Romney did great in fundraising. I am happy that I did and still doing my very small part in giving some money to Romney.

Doughboy on October 15, 2012 at 4:06 PM

..the speculation on Ed’s noontime show (well, here on the Left Coast) was how much cash on hand did each campaign have. Kevin postulated that The Crapsack’s campaign was running on fumes and most of the $171 million went to pay off bills. Speculation was Romney had about $100 million in cash on hand.

Bottom line though is that the burn rate for Romney will exceed the bring-in because, of course, no reason to save it for the second, third and fourth weeks in November.

But, if these speculations are true, it is an interesting insight into how each campaign is run.

Tangential: remember how the boobs told us back in 2008 that the successful campaign for Obama was an indication of his executive experience?

..how’s that hypothesis working out now one wonders?

One $10 gift means one more TV or radio ad in some market. Could sway that last undecided voter.

Restore Our Future spent $1 million on 10,80 tv ads.
Americans for Job Security spent $3 million on 2,685 tv ads.
Republican Jewish Coalition spent $1 million on 726 ads (compare to what Restore Our Future bought for the same cost and no jokes, please.)
American Future Fund spent $862,800 on 875 tv ads.

Romney has passed Obama in tv ad buys: $282 million vs. $262 million.

Doughboy on October 15, 2012 at 4:22 PM

Part of the higher spending, from my understanding, is due to the higher rates Romney is paying for TV ads; they’re buying time on a week-to-week basis, whereas Obama purchased the time in advance.

But, it does mean there will be at least parity in the swing states from now on.

The Romney campaign and the RNC have always required a matching account home address PLUS the 3-digit security number on the back of the card in order to make a donation on ANY of their sites — since Day One.

The Obama campaign and the DNC has NEVER required EITHER — since Day One. Not even during his 2008 run.

The same — more or less — even stands true for their YouTube campaign videos. The Romney campaign and the RNC has ALWAYS left the comments section open for an open forum.

The Obama campaign and the DNC have ALWAYS either disabled comments entirely — or ALL comments pend ‘approval’ [and -- of course -- those are carefully cherry picked] on every single campaign video they’ve done.

The last four years — and especially the last 4 weeks — notwithstanding — it just goes to show EVERYONE who the true blue honest and transparent candidates are — and who the grown ups in the room truly are too.

Obamuh thought he was so great with his September take, so turns out it wasn’t that much more than Romney. And Romney made up the difference with $12 million in fundraising just from the first debate. Now I read over at Politico that Obamuh is using “bill collector” language in his desperate fundraising emails, pointing out to the recipients that they haven’t donated in awhile. No threats of possible cracked kneecaps mentioned for failure to donate.

Yesterday, he told me that my poll on OH (Zog) was dated (it was released Friday). He said that I needed to “try and keep up” because Zog had just released a new poll. I asked for him to post the new Zog poll on OHIO and not the just released NATIONAL poll. Crickets. There was NO new Zog poll on Ohio. My link was the latest.

..would say “I knew it all along” except for the fact I was white-knuckled in the days following the D&C. But there were a couple of articles floating around — one at Ricochet and another one I cannot recall — that said they looked at the Romney campaign and saw they were not panicking. The latter article said that R&R’s internal polling kept coming back wa-a-a-a-a-y better than the public, rigged slop we consume.

It ain’t over, but it sure looks like R&R are driving the bus and that fart-clown sitting in the back.

Yesterday, he told me that my poll on OH (Zog) was dated (it was released Friday). He said that I needed to “try and keep up” because Zog had just released a new poll. I asked for him to post the new Zog poll on OHIO and not the just released NATIONAL poll. Crickets. There was NO new Zog poll on Ohio. My link was the latest.

Yeah, he’s just phoning it in now. He’s down to soiling himself over 1-point Sunday Obama gains on Rasmussen.

I forgot to look for this until today.

OT: New “study” out of Kaiser family Foundation somehow (I kid you not!) finds that under the supposed Romney/Ryan plan Medicare recipients will pay more. 2 very important disclaimers are well hidden in the “study”, (one) that says the entire Romney/Ryan is not yet known and (two) that models the numbers based on today’s implementation, not as Ryan keeps insisting is 10 years down the road for many.

One day prior to presidential debate. One wonders…

No, one doesn’t wonder.

The last week I’ve walked the pooch through about 80% of the neighborhood and have counted 4 total.

But California is absolutely guaranteed not in play… (yes, that’s snark from a Southern California resident)

Personally I’m glad Romney got Slightly out “fundraised” by Barack as I got so tired of hearing his whining about being the first incumbent president to be outraised and outspent. Takes away all his cry-baby excuses.

Good to see that roughly $1 BILLION not doing much for Hussein. Union money going to waste, will we see unions trying to raise dues now?

Sadly, not going to happen. Even in once safe for GOP Orange County and San Diego. Even in Central Valley now the more North you travel the less a chance for GOP, even Lundgren is fighting for once safe seat. The state is gone. GONE.

This is far from over. Mitt needs to keep pushing hard to make the case. He needs a mandate.

This is why Republicans are at a disadvantage: Obama is raising money in 57 states!!

If this is anywhere near reality, this election is over.

NH is not a swing state. We are firmly in the red and so is Maine. In 2009 everything changed and the dems have been crushed at the ballot every time since then. I keep saying it.

Fixed for greater clarity. Do you really think we provide “financial aid” for nothing?

Damn. :/

Don’t just go for the WIN – go for complete destruction.

Romney probably got a lot illegal contributions from all those Mormon extremists in the Gaza Strip, Yemen, Sudan, Cyprus, and Turkmenistan.
