They gave to Trump's GOP rivals. Now 95% are sitting out the general election

Most of Donald Trumpís Republican presidential primary rivals have come around to his candidacy, but their donors are staying away.

Nearly 95% of those who first gave to his GOP primary opponents are sitting out the general election, and of those who are still giving money, many are lining up behind Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton instead, according to a Times analysis of donations over $200.

Trump has out-raised Clinton $7.4 million to $2 million among donors who supported his 16 GOP rivals. But that much support for Clinton is notable in a race where her Republican rival is struggling in the money contest.

Clinton brought in $292 million to Trumpís $82 million through the end of August. Add in loans, transfers from joint fundraising committees and super PAC money, and the gulf grows, with $530 million for Clinton and $186 million for Trump, according to Federal Election Commission records through Aug. 31, the most recent period for which figures were available.

1. HOLY COW

 


Boy after what i just saw i would have thought Trump finally raised more money
then Hillary. Some people on cnn were talking about all the money Trump
now has on hand that he hasn't spent yet. But that figure is a dwarf compared
to what Hillary has. Thank heavens. She will need every penny.
