Where Are Trump’s and Clinton’s Biggest Donations Coming From?

by Joanna Pearlstein | Wired.com  |  published on August 26, 2016


DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE Hillary Clinton is fundraising in Silicon Valley this week, an area that’s been very good to her. According to new documents filed with the US Federal Election Commission, Californians contributed $4.3 million to Clinton’s campaign in the month of July, making it her most successful fundraising state. The Golden state ranks third among Republican nominee Donald Trump’s fundraising locations, though he took in only about $680,000 from Californians.

Overall, Clinton’s donations continue to outpace Trump’s. According to FEC data, the Democratic nominee’s campaign took in $31.2 million from about 14,000 zip codes in the month of July, while Trump collected $19.6 million from about 7,600 zip codes. In other words, the Democratic nominee collected 60 percent more money, and this in a month that many considered to be a fundraising success for Trump, who has long trailed the Democrats in outside contributions.

Since both candidates hail from New York, you’d expect both to have strong support in the Empire state—even though, overall, New York is heavily Democratic; polls favor a Clinton victory there in November. But looking at Manhattan in particular reveals considerable support for Trump, mostly concentrated on the east side of Manhattan, where his campaign is headquartered and where the Trump Tower is located. In the month of July, the zip code that’s home to Trump Tower contributed more than $15,000 to the campaign. Across town in the Columbus Circle zip code, where Trump also has a tower, Clinton collected more than $42,000.

    A look at the polls should include the inclusive dates. The one most often quoted by the media now includes all of August (the first two weeks were bad for Trump). Until recently the same poll included only figures from the previous week.
    Most poll samples are less than a thousand people & depending on the geographic location may have an inordinate number of one specific political view.
    If the results don’t support the expected outcome data manipulation is an option favored by most political operatives. Nearly all political operatives are motivated by one thing, the final victory at the ballot box.
    The word “Spin” has replace the words “Lie” & Falsehood”. Keep in mind that spin is in actuality leaving out a portion of the truth to create a false impression.

    Any portion of the truth that is purposely omitted makes the entire utterance untrue & untruth is purely and simply a lie.

    If you think that’s funny, just imagine how funny it will look when you have to walk around in a black shroud (burka) during a 90 degree heat! Just imagine the joy you will receive when you won’t be able to leave your house without a male escort goes with you, and of course, since you’re not permitted to drive, how wonderful it will be for you to have to wait until some crackpot finally gets home but tells you he doesn’t want to go any where, so you stay in your house and pretend to be a slave. Oh, whoops! You are a slave! Enjoy!

      You clearly misunderstood my post by 180 degrees. I was expressing approval and liked the way you expressed yourself.

    Hillary, the candidate “of the people”, but only those with massive bank accounts. Hillary, the best candidate money can buy. And I bet she does not stay bought, turning on those who gave her money for those with deeper pockets. If she were a Republican, and Republican voters lost their minds and nominated her, the press would be all over her financials and those of her “foundation”. It’s the 90’s all over again. Donors paid for “access”, not “favors”. The money to Iran was for “leverage’ and not “ransom”. And I guess it all depends on the meaning of the word “is” again, right?

    • Elaine Blackman

      Oh, no. Not just by the rich. She’s also supported by those too ignorant to know that they are being used by the Dem. party, by those who want welfare and other freebies from the U.S. as offered by the liberal Socialist Dem. agenda, and by illegals who want to be allowed to bring their families in and to get amnesty (even though some Rep. presidents have offered that, too).

  • Taking care of business!

    Maybe Hillary can use the money for bail.

    not a word, about how much trump had funded his campaign. remember originally trump, never asked for donations. even though donations came in, without his even asking for them.

  • justinwachin

    Hillary seems to be spending more of her time fundraising. If she loses in November most people are going to say she should have spent more time speaking to the people and getting votes. On election day the only thing that counts will be vote totals.

    • Bill Hartman

      Plus the votes of dead people, fake people, multiple votes by the same person, and totally manufactured votes within computers.

      • Elaine Blackman

        And all of the illegals and “refugees” they brought in. I wouldn’t be surprised if they didn’t take all the names and just add them to the Dem. votes in Nov.

  • KayO

    The wealthy left always supports the most liberal candidate they can. No surprises there. They know that more tax dollars are wasted than applied to worthy programs, but they like to tell themselves that supporting social programs is helping others. That way, they don’t have to break a nail getting personally involved in truly helping others.

  • Dan

    Ultra liberals/ Socialists/ Muslim sympathizers and the PC crowd are her benefactors !! As President Truman told Gen. MacArthur “Political Correctness is a doctrine recently fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and promoted by a sick mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a piece of shit by the clean end”.

    • KT

      Great way of putting saying it….Bottom Line!

    • Rick2101

      President Truman did not explain political correctness to General MacArthur in a series of telegraphs.

      The chain email claims General MacArthur had never heard of the the term “politically correct” and that President Truman had to explain it to him just before Japan’s World War II surrender in 1945.

      But the Harry S. Truman Library & Museum told TruthorFiction.com that those correspondences “do not exist in the library’s holdings.” https://www.truthorfiction.com/president-harry-truman-defined-political-correctness-in-telegraph/

      Although World War II has been one of the most influential and well-studied events of modern history, evidence of this purported telegraph exchange between Truman and MacArthur was virtually non-existent on the Internet prior to 2015. The description of political correctness attributed to Truman therein weren’t spread in earnest until April 2015, although iterations of this item had been circulated a few weeks earlier. http://www.snopes.com/politics/quotes/trumanpc.asp

    Where do these people come from? They come from whatever area that has lots and lots of money and want lots and lots of benefits! Hitlery doesn’t give a flying f-ck about anyone but herself and her deep desire for power and money.

    • Ethel Halstead

      If any of you Hilary supporters want anything from Hilary you had better get it before she gets elected. All you silly little good-for-nothings except donations, are just so much trash under her feet if she gets elected. Just like Obama: Tell me folks, just what exactly has Obama done for any of you except screw up your country so badly it may never be the same again. Or worse still, it might be taken over by Muslims and operate under Sharia law. But aren’t all of your beautiful bodies that look so great in bathing suits, going to look even greater in burkas?

      • KayO

        That’s the rub for muslims. They don’t know that they’re being used to usher in totalitarian rule, and they don’t know that the governing powers will use that rule against them. Watch the Agenda films by Curtis Bowers-they’re real eye-openers.

        • Bill Hartman

          Did you read about the Muslim religious leader that was teaching British Muslim boys that they would get to have sex slaves when the infidels are conquered? Do you think those boys were worried about future generations living under totalitarian rule? Of course not.

          • KayO

            That’s not a surprise. Globalists probably don’t have a problem with rape, as long as the captors feed their captives. Communists don’t concern themselves with human rights.

          • Elaine Blackman

            And if she’s Muslim, too bad for her. Death is her only honor. For “infidels”, it’s a way to show domination as well as a way to dilute other races.

          • KayO

            She’s not a muslim. In fact, she and her globalist buddies are using muslims to usher in totalitarian rule. Muslims love dictatorships-they just don’t know that they’re being used. Globalists see all people as slave-labor. They kill off the sick and poor, and the globalist earthlings are currently considering whether to do that through a pandemic or starvation-that’s not a joke. All Hillary wants is to line her pockets, take control, and sit on her throne. She’s just a pimp-mama, and that’s all she is.

          • Elaine Blackman

            I was talking about all of the rape victims you mentioned. If ONE of them is a she who is a Muslim, then SHE will be put to death.

            I have no idea who your “she” is or who you were speaking of specifically. I read no specifics.

          • KayO

            My “she” is Hillary.

          • Elaine Blackman

            Yeah, I’m sure you were, but that wasn’t the topic, was it? Below was the post I was referring to. I looked and couldn’t even find a post you’d made about HRC. I know it’s easy to think something different all of a sudden. I do it sometimes, too, but she wasn’t the topic at that time.

            ” That’s the rub for muslims. They don’t know that they’re being used to usher in totalitarian rule, and they don’t know that the governing powers will use that rule against them.”

          • Kolodzczjzyk

            This, of course, depends upon when and if those British Muslim boys are still alive to enjoy it. What makes anyone believe that even the British will have to come to a conclusion soon if they want to keep their lives and their freedoms. They have already begun by leaving the European Union. Let’s face it, the Europeans have been fighting with each other for centuries, why stop now. Unless and until the Europeans wake up to the problems they have created by opening their borders to those who, for all rights, are used to living in the 10th century!

          • KayO

            I’m not defending the muslims as being victims of the communist left. My point is that their radical ideals are being used against them and they’re too blind and stupid to know it.

      • Jimmie Cooper Boswell

        not as long as you have millions of dollars, to donate to the clinton foundation to buy political favors.

        don’t any of you, even know how the socialist oligarch system works? unless you, give enough grease to the gears, the gears do not turn in your favor

        can you even imagine what the miss muslim america sharia contest would be like?

        • Dolores Adams

          It would be horrible. The muslims profess to be a relition of peace. But what religion advocates murder?

          • Bill Hartman

            They offer peace when the entire world is Muslim, when all are subjugated. That is the peace detailed in their “holy” book. It is the peace referred to by Patrick Henry: “Is life so dear or peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what others may say, but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death!”

          • Jimmie Cooper Boswell

            yeah with the same kind of muslim peace, in syria today.

          • Kolodzczjzyk

            That’s great. I didn’t think of Pat

          • Elaine Blackman

            I don’t need to give you a vote up since you do that for all your own posts. 🙂

          • Elaine Blackman

            I don’t think there’s ever any peace. Women are objects and even if raped, they are usually killed for family honor. (Seems like a good way for a husband to plan his wife’s murder to me.) If anyone says anything against Islam, it means death or dismemberment. Those in control could pretty much make up rules as they go along, it seems to me.

          • Bill Hartman

            I agree. My point was only what Islam really means by the idea of bringing peace to the world — only after all are conquered, Islam will stop conquering. Actually, I seriously doubt that war would actually end, as Islam contains factions whose differences largely center around differing beliefs regarding the caliphate (the world-wide Islamic government). A second force will be the unleashing of cults of religious purity. A third will be the battles within each division of Islam for leadership, with world dictator the grand prize. Blood would run.

            Within any community being run under sharia law, there will be the same kind of bloodshed seen today in Muslim countries. Not “war” in the traditional meaning of the word, but not a peaceful existence either.

          • Elaine Blackman

            Right. I put a like vote under your post but I was envisioning that there never was such a thing as peace for the masses. Agreeing with you 100%.

          • Kolodzczjzyk

            Actually Islam is not a religion of peace, its a religion of eternal contest with all those around them. Islam is a religion (if you can call it that) that demands absolute submission to a rule of fear. It must be the sole absolute power or it has to be crushed.

        • Kolodzczjzyk

          Oh sure we do; under sharia law we’ll all be living back in the stone age.

          • Jimmie Cooper Boswell

            please do not insult, the more civilized stone age.

      • Kolodzczjzyk

        Very well said!

    • Retired

      That would be the whole Clinton Family. Chelsea is being groomed along with her Husband a former Communist block Jew.

      • Kolodzczjzyk

        Well I know Chelsea’s husband is a Jew, but I doubt he was a communist, and strange as this may seem to you, Jews don’t like communism. That’s the reasons that once the Soviet Union collapsed the Russian Jews got the hell out of there as soon as they could. Sure there were Jews who were communists, but they were, and are, the tiny minority and frankly, they don’t even identify themselves as Jews.

        • Pete

          George Soros is one of the latter. Can you imagine what the old patriarchs like Joshua or Caleb would do to that guy?

    • KayO

      Now, that’s just not true. She also cares about those who give her a lot of money!

      • Bay0Wulf

        Ummmm …
        Only in the first few minutes after its been handed to her. After that she seems to “forget” where it came from and “forgets” where it went to …

        Unless, of course it somehow gets dug up in an e-mail FOIA Request …

        then it’s; “Ooopps!!! How did they miss that one when they were Erasi … errr … Wipi … errr … GIVING You All My E-Mails!?!?!

        • KayO

          Ha! I watched the Clinton Cash documentary a couple of weeks ago. It’s free on YouTube if you haven’t seen it. It’s remarkable how one of her donors got a contract to build new homes in Haiti (if I remember correctly), but built 1/2 of the homes and twice the price than agreed. I really enjoyed learning how Hillary’s brother was given a contract to mine for gold, but didn’t really have the experience to do it. If memory serves, the gold was in an area that would have been perfect to build new homes, but the land was deemed “uninhabitable” by Clinton’s eunuchs. They’re not even ashamed of their corruption.

          • Bay0Wulf

            What’s Truly Awful is that Stories Like These are ENDLESS …

            As I Often Tell People;
            Go Ahead … Let’s say that 85% of ALL the Stories about Her & the Clinton Machine are BS. Go Ahead … YOU select the ones You want to Throw Out …

            NOW … LOOK at How Many Remain …

            Say What You Want but When There’s THAT Much BS Left Over, There is Darn Sure a Whole Herd of Cows Remaining …

            I don’t like coincidences … one or two are bad enough … the Clinton Machine has HUNDREDS of Them …

            There is absolutely no shame in this Clinton Crowd. I was talking to my long time friend today and I remarked on how it was unbelievable that Bill could even show his face in public after being disbarred impeached etc. My friend said that’s because I have a conscience…
            Don’t even get me started on his bride, Hilary, who’s crimes are more than just moral ineptitude they are homicidal!
