2020: President Trump is getting more donations than Democrats in blue-state Washington

If we are to believe polls, according to a new Fox News poll of 1,013 registered voters released last Thursday, August 15, 2019, each one of the top four Democratic presidential candidates would defeat President Trump in the 2020 election if it were held today (Daily Wire):

  • Joe Biden (50%), Donald Trump (38%)
  • Bernie Sanders (48%), Donald Trump (39%)
  • Kamala Harris (45%), Donald Trump (39%)
  • Elizabeth Warren (46%), Donald Trump (39%)

What is more interesting and more believable than the Fox News poll is this astounding news from Seattle Times, August 16, 2019, about blue-city Seattle and blue-state Washington:

  • President Trump has received more donations from residents of Washington than the top six Democrats combined.
  • With nearly 15 months to go before the 2020 election, Trump has received more donations from Seattle residents than he did during the entire 2016 campaign.

Some of Trump’s big Washington donors are:

  • Seattle property manager Suzie Burke donated $375.
  • Billionaire investment adviser Ken and Sherrilyn Fisher each gave the maximum $5,600.
  • Daryl Miller, Fischer Plumbing CEO who is on the board of Seattle Pacific University donated $5,600.
  • Seattle developer Martin Selig donated $5,600.

Seattle Times reporter Danny Westneat, who calls Trump’s behavior “increasingly unhinged,” points out that:

I’m not talking about total dollars raised — though on that front Trump is a juggernaut, too. But the total number of donations reflects how many people are inspired enough by a candidate to send any amount of money, sometimes repeatedly….

Well, now Trump, of all candidates, has nearly three times as many donations from Washington state as Bernie Sanders does. The Vermont senator has 8,080 itemized donations here, while Trump has the most ever recorded at this point in an election, by any candidate in either party21,657.

What’s more, these are “itemized donations” — meaning the donors were required to list their names, occupations and addresses, and risk the backlash….

So you can look through the list and see that just in Seattle, Trump has the support of a seamstress, an airline pilot, a crane operator, a teacher, a nurse, a city of Seattle firefighter, a UW professor, a longshoreman and about a thousand others. In total they’ve given $93,042.

Past this point of the last campaign, Trump had only six donations from Seattle — and when The Seattle Times contacted the donors, two said they wanted their money back….

Already Trump has surpassed his total 2016 pool of donors from Washington state, by 31%.

So what, you may be saying, Trump’s not going to win out here anyway. True. But when your fundraising is breaking records, it indicates an intense passion for the candidate, as it did for Bernie Sanders. That counts for a ton in politics — and likely means Trump is stronger right now than his dismal polls indicate.

The Seattle Times‘ article is closed to comments “due to a high number of comments that violated our terms of service,” whatever that means.

Seattle times is notorious for keeping comments closed. But I just checked the article and there are over 400 comments.

Musta killed the rabid progressive Danny to report the Trump donations. Guess that’s why he published the list of donors.

Heh…the comments “violated” terms of service, is why they’re closed…O-O-O-O-O-O-Okay!!

In my previous life as a message board moderator, I’d take this article & have some fun with a rival mod, who lives in Olympia, and is a rabid Bernie supporter.

And somehow they still elected Gov Inslee, whose presidential candidacy never got more than 1/4 inch off the ground.

I hope this shows a severe case of buyers’ remorse in their constant election of demonRATS who having nothing to show for their failed policies, except bums attacking other people.

Inslee won over Bill Bryant (r) by 9%. That’s actually not too bad considering how blue WA is.

Then there’s the paper ballots which may help demorats (especially when found in car trunks). When I first moved to OK, King County Elections actually sent me a ballot at my OK address. I had to advise them (again) that I no longer lived in WA.

I’ve learned to ignore polls almost completely. Recall that Clinton had a 12 point lead shortly before the 2016 election. Insurmountable, but only if it was real. This poll more than a year before the next election means less than nothing. Dizzy Miss Lizzy, the womyn of color who happens to be whiter than an albino polar bear, beating Trump? They can’t be serious. Her numbers are flat even here in MA

Polls? I keep waiting for a phone call and it never happens
so I don’t believe in pollsters either because I’ve never seen any at the shopping plaza -it’s all bullshit.

The polls are rigged. Attendance at Trump rallies says it all. No dimocrat candidate fills stadiums with large overflow outside the venues. Trump does it at every rally.

So it was in 2016, Trump rallies were SRO, Clinton had to cancel some of hers because there would be hundreds of people chanting “lock her up”. And they are still saying she “won”. Maybe in NYC, Boston, San Francisco. In actual fact Trump won in a landslide
