Biden’s Fundraising Falters
Well, folks, it seems that ol’ Joe Biden’s reelection campaign is off to a rather unimpressive start. It’s like tryin’ to saddle up a lame horse and expectin’ it to win the race. With just two full-time staffers on board and hardly a penny to show for their efforts, it’s lookin’ pretty bleak for the incumbent.
In stark contrast, former President Donald Trump’s campaign is making significant strides, enjoying soaring poll numbers and impressive fundraising.
According to Axios, Biden’s reelection campaign has only two publicly announced full-time staffers, with campaign manager Julie Chávez Rodríguez yet to officially start her role. As a result, she will remain outside of the decision-making process for another two weeks.
Additionally, Biden’s campaign has faced criticism for its failure to report funding totals, in part because it lacks an official fundraising team leader. While the campaign had planned to release funding totals 48 hours after the president’s reelection announcement, low numbers led to no funds being reported. This is a significant departure from Biden’s 2020 campaign, which reported $6.3 million within 24 hours of its launch.
Bloomberg suggests that the campaign’s sluggish fundraising may be due to poor coordination between the campaign and major Democratic donors. Some donors were not even asked for contributions on the first day of the campaign. Consequently, the Biden campaign has had to rely on the Democratic National Committee, a scandal-ridden organization, for funding.
On the other hand, Trump’s campaign is thriving, raising $7 million following news of his April indictment and $18.8 million in the first quarter. Polls also indicate that Trump currently leads Biden in a general matchup by three to five points.
Now, I ain’t one to take joy in another man’s misfortune, but it’s hard not to chuckle a bit when you see the former President Trump rakin’ in the greenbacks and gainin’ traction in the polls. It’s a stark reminder that sometimes, the American people prefer a strong, decisive leader who ain’t afraid to ruffle a few feathers.
It’s no secret that Biden’s campaign is strugglin’ to get their boots on straight. I reckon a lack of coordination with them big Democrat donors and no official fundraising leader is just askin’ for trouble.
It’s like tryin’ to herd cattle with a broken lasso – you ain’t gonna get far.
But what really grinds my gears is seein’ the Biden campaign leanin’ on that scandal-ridden Democrat National Committee for funding. It’s like borrowin’ money from a snake oil salesman – you’re just askin’ for more trouble down the road.
I can’t say I’m surprised, though. When the winds of change start blowin’, it’s best to saddle up and ride with ’em. And right now, it seems the American people are hankerin’ for a leader with a bit more backbone.
So, Joe, it might be time to dust off that saddle and ride into the sunset, ’cause it looks like there’s a new sheriff in town.
