    Pretty well:

    Trump's campaign and the Republican National Committee (RNC) ultimately raised a combined $55 million in the first quarter. According to the National Review's Kelly Jane Torrance, Barack Obama and the Democratic National Committee had raised roughly $16 million in the same period of Obama's first term.[8]

    If memory serves, second quarter also surpassed Obama.

    This is what I'm wondering; big business / Wall Street monies in the past has been pretty evenly split between Dems and Pubs, often favoring the Dems. But with all this business bashing by the Dems I suspect the real big money will shift more towards the Republicans.

    Such an attitude might actually increase donations as they rush forward to buy an exemption.

    I'm always still in trouble again

    Trump and RNC raised massive $125 million in third quarter


    Obama raised $71 million in the same period.

    Impeachment as a fundraising tool is still weird - but I suppose Trump owes Pelosi a couple dozen roses...

    Trump has now insanely broken fundraising records.

    The polls are still unreliable - way too many unprecedented things going on which mucks up, if not invalidates, the weighting.
