The article states that Democrats have seen a decline in fundraising linking it to complacency and a boycott by many of their business donors, who are basically boycotting the Democrats for their critical views of big business, and also the state of the economy.
While the Republicans have received 1.7 million more in donations than the Democrats for the month of August, the Democrats have seen a 20 percent drop in their donations.
Through August, the DSCC had raised just $27.5 million, a drop of more than 25 percent, or $9.2 million, from the same point two years ago. While donations from special interest political action committees have increased, individual donors are disappearing at a rate that has alarmed party leaders: The DSCC's contributions from individuals was $18.5 million through August, a drop of $12.6 million, or nearly 40 percent, from two years earlier, according to reports filed with the Federal Election Commission.
A midyear analysis by the FEC showed that the DSCC declines at that stage had come entirely from individuals who gave $10,000 or more, a small slice of overall contributors but a group that traditionally provides about half the committee's fundraising total. Through June, those individual donors' contributions had declined by more than 50 percent from 2007. The committee is running 12 percent behind its 2005 pace among large donors.
So according to WaPo the Democrats are losing about 25 percent of their donations from individual voters. Of course the Democrats will cite the weak economy as a factor and that may be partially true, but have they even considered that people are fed up with big government ramming bills down their throats whether they want it or not?
What the Democrats fail to realize is that America is still a middle to right country, not all of their supporters are liberal, anti-business, government should take care of me, kind of people. Many Democrats are moderates. Many did not support the 787 Billion bailout bill and many do not support the current attempt to ram a health care bill through Congress that increases the deficit, increases taxes, rations care, decreases services to the elderly, and gives health care to illegal aliens.
Do the Democrats even stop to think that this may be the larger factor in the reasoning behind the drop in donations, especially from individuals. Let's hope not. Let's hope they continue their arrogance and ignorance on this issue all the way to 2010.
In contrast the The National Republican Senatorial Committee donations are up by 30 percent, need say more, it is as clear as the nose on every ones faces except the Democrats in Congress and the White House.
In the mean time folks, please enjoy this GREAT SONG by my good friend, Lloyd Marcus. As many of you know, Lloyd's music is used in my show, with his blessing. Lloyd Marcus, along with many other Black Americans, are proof the resistance to Obama Care and Obammunism is not about race, it is about America and the fear of what Obama and his supporters are turning America into.
