Dean Bankrupting the Democrats

Published by at 5:50 pm under 2006 Elections,All General Discussions

Howard Dean can get headlines for all his incoherent talk about hating republicans (aka whites and christians), but looks to be an utter failure in the money department. I agree with Ankle Biting Pundits on this, the guy may self destruct too soon and the dems may find a real chairman before Dean can do his damage in 2006.

Despite these efforts, the DNC still trails the Republican National Committee, which reported last week that it raised almost $53 million through the first five months of the year. That compares with $22.6 million raised by the DNC over the same period.

The RNC reported it had $32.6 million on hand at the end of May. Democrats had $8.2 million.

If we extrapolate this performance through to next summer heading into the 2006 cycle this is what you would see:


RNC raising $106M, $65.2M in the bank

DNC raising $45.2M, $16.4M in the bank


RNC raising $159M, $97.8M in the bank

DNC raising $67.8M, $24.6M in the bank

Yeah, with these numbers it is a good chance Dean won’t make it into next year. Darn.


Dean is definitely not going to represent many people in the US of A with idiotic and crass statements like this (again from Ankle Biting Pundits):

“They say they want small government, but their government is just big enough to fit inside Terri Schiavo’s bed in the nursing home,” Dean said.
