Although Democrats are expected to lose seats in the November 2022 elections, which always happens when a party gains control in a presidential election, fundraising numbers indicate that the party is not yet down and out.
With a significant amount of grassroots donor money, which averages at around $25 per donation, as well as some of the major donors, with both groups adding new donors (those who sat out the 2020 elections) to their rolls, fundraising was up in February to around $14 million.
In addition, fundraising is largely a direct reaction to President Biden, whose fundraising emails have gone out to Democratic voters along with his wife’s, his vice president’s, and the vice president’s husband, and brought in a large portion of the donation.
According to NBC News, one source among the Democratic party told reporters that:
‘We’re getting a lot of donors who didn’t give last year who are now giving,” the source said. “It’s a lot of things. Voter suppression is an issue, people are distressed about that. They feel that if they lose the majority, working-class people will be severely injured. They’ll try to roll things back, you can’t really do anything, that will be it. The progress will stop and it will be an ugly situation.’
Twitter was hopeful that Democrats will do better in 2022 than expected. Read some of their comments below:
