Democrats Are Jarred by Drop In Fundraising

One would think the financial elites would be well pleased with the Democrats right now. Not so. It just doesn’t stop:

Democratic political committees have seen a decline in their fundraising fortunes this year, a result of complacency among their rank-and-file donors and a de facto boycott by many of their wealthiest givers, who have been put off by the party’s harsh rhetoric about big business.

The trend is a marked reversal from recent history, in which Democrats have erased the GOP’s long-standing fundraising advantage. In the first six months of 2009, Democratic campaign committees’ receipts have dropped compared with the same period two years earlier.

The vast majority of those declines were accounted for by the absence of large donors who, strategists say, have shut their checkbooks in part because Democrats have heightened their attacks on the conduct of major financial firms and set their sights on rewriting the laws that regulate their behavior.

  1. Well look what they did to Klinton. The history of Democrats in the POTUS office for the last couple decades has been the ruling class getting all stoked on their facelift and then having buyers’ remorse because they think someone else might kick poor people’s ass harder.
