Let me put that in perspective.
From NBC News:
Hillary Clinton and her allies continue to outspend Donald Trump and his backers over the airwaves by a 15-to-1 margin, according to ad-spending data from SMG Delta.
Team Clinton has spent $57 million on ads so far in the general election -- $25 million coming from the campaign and another $32 million from pro-Clinton Super PACs.
By comparison, Team Trump has aired $3.6 million in ads, with all of the spending from two outside groups, the National Rifle Association ($2.3 million) and Rebuilding America Now ($1.3 million). The Trump campaign has yet to spend a single cent on ads so far in the general election.
Last week, the totals were $45 million for Team Clinton, versus $2.8 million for Team Trump.
Clinton's advantage is even more pronounced in the battlegrounds, where Team Clinton has spent a combined $46.2 million in nine states to Team Trump's $1.2 million. That's nearly a 40-to-1 margin.From Politico:
New swing-state polls released Wednesday by Quinnipiac University show Trump leading Clinton in Florida and Pennsylvania — and tied in the critical battleground state of Ohio. In three of the states that matter most in November, the surveys point to a race much closer than the national polls, which have Clinton pegged to a significant, mid-single-digit advantage over Trump, suggest.
The race is so close that it's within the margin of error in each of the three states. Trump leads by three points in Florida — the closest state in the 2012 election — 42 percent to 39 percent. In Ohio, the race is tied, 41 percent to 41 percent. And in Pennsylvania — which hasn't voted for a Republican presidential nominee since 1988 — Trump leads, 43 percent to 41 percent.So Hillary is spending all this money and getting nowhere fast. The media is all-in for her; Roger Ailes has turned Fox News into Anti Trump Central. He's a rookie candidate for office of any kind and she is in her fourth presidential race.
And she is only 4.5 points ahead?
Not double digits?
Behind in Pennsylvania, a must-carry state for Democrats?
Trumpkins saw this before. A fellow named Jeb Bush spent $100 million on ads and staff last year and wound up ending the year 30 points behind Trump. Trump spend zero on TV ads in 2015.
So let Never Trumpers gloat.
Our turn comes November 9, the day after the election.
Just as it did on May 3.
