April 16, 2012

President Obama's re-election campaign and the DNC raised a combined $53 million in March, the Obama camp announced in a video. They raised $45 million in February and $29 million in January.

50-60 Mio. per month is not bad I guess. If they can raise 60 Mio. in the next 7.25 months - it'll be 435 Mio., for a total of 562 Mio. in 2012 and 786 Mio. for the 2012 cycle.

Here are the full quarterly OFA/DNC/OVF/SSFV figures:

Q1 2012: 127 Mio. $
Q4 2011:   68 Mio. $
Q3 2011:   70 Mio. $
Q2 2011:   86 Mio. $

Obama started his campaign on April 4, 2011 - at the start of Q2 2011.

What would we expect Romney + Super PACs to raise in comparison?

About the same amount I guess.

Romney can raise 20 Mio. per month, his SuperPAC about 10 Mio., Karl Rove's Crossroads about 15 Mio. and the RNC about 15 Mio. too

So, about 60 Mio. alltogether as well. But these are just estimates.

So in your estimation neither part will have a major financial advantage over the other? What if Romney decided to spend a major part of his personal fortune on his campaign? That could potentially be a big advantage. I mean, what else does he need all that money for?

On the other hand, that could be hugely politically damaging.

Typical totalitarian socialist Obama keeping all the campaign fundraising to himself instead of letting private industry compete and have the market decide who runs the best Obama 2012 campaign.

the result is a sense that we were told to attend a lavish dinner party that was going to be wonderful and by the time we got there, all the lobster and steak had been eaten, a fight had broken out, the police had been called and all that was left was warm beer and chips.

For example, the Bush-Cheney 2004 campaign had just 87 Mio. $ left at the end of March 2004:

But Bush/Cheney accepted public financing for the general election, so that money wasn't meant to last until November, only until August, so note that when making comparisons to the present.
