A Record Number Of Republicans Voted In The 2016 Presidential Primaries But There Was A Large Decrease In Democrats At The Polls (Trump vs. Clinton)
July 8. 2016
New voting data reveals the 2016 presidential primaries in America saw a huge turn out for Republican, Donald Trump, who received a record 13,000,000 votes. However, there was a very noticeable 21% decrease in the number of voters on the Democrat side, which barely gave Hillary Clinton the nomination. What will this mean come election day in November.
Initially, Trump had raised a paltry sum for political donations ($1,500,000) and was laughed at by the Clinton camp, as she and husband, former president, Bill Clinton, had solicited and received $48,000,000 from Hollywood and members of the Saudi royal family. However, new numbers indicate Donald Trump and the Republican party raised $53,000,000 last month. To date Trump has raised $55,000,000. Clinton's tally is now $68,500,000.
I've found it disturbing the financial figures raised in presidential elections in America over the past 16-years. It feels like the presidency is routinely being bought, where it should go to the most qualified person based on merit not money. I am of the belief, there should be financial caps on how much money can be raised for an election.
The Republican Party and Trump raised over $50M last month
July 7, 2016 | 12:26am - The Republican Party and Donald Trump ramped up their joint fund-raising last month by hauling in a combined $51 million to support his presidential bid. The real-estate tycoon chipped in $3.8 million to boost the total to $55 million. Trump vowed he would raise more than enough money to defeat Hillary Clinton, noting how he raised less and spent wisely to defeat his primary opponents...Trump and the GOP still trail Clinton and the Democratic National Committee, which raised a combined $68.5 million last month.
