    When you give out free money to billionaires and major corporations, you get a little back.

    Let's just wait until the report comes out that Trump and his team so badly want to keep quiet for some reason.

    Marxist. Unlike Democrats I don't blame the Russians if my canidate loses. Now a question for you. Given the Demos misrable failure with their Mueller probe, when can we expect the Democrats to apologize to America and to President Trump?

    It's a bit of a media distortion. Trump is the only Republican candidate. On the side of the Democrats, there are in excess of 20 candidates, and if you add up the donations to them, it exceeds Trump's. The key will be where things stand around convention time next year.

    @Thid "Note to Democrats, put your money where your mouths are, send in YOUR money to YOUR candidate and allow other people the same privilege! What's the matter, don't like losing, again?"

    OK, I'm fine with this. But answer a question please. If Trump loses will you accept the loss or will you do as the Russians asked Trump to do in 2016 pending a possible loss, contest the election?

    "Another 4 years of Trump will establish the Trump dictatorship. The end of constitutional government is very close."
    More unhinged leftist ranting and raving. Chicken Little is really not a good look.

    We are witnessing a fitting demonstration of love and gratitude hardworking, rational Americans are showing their President which is more than the top two Democrat candidates have garnered-combined! It is also very significant that 99% of the donations President Trump has received are $200 or less with the average donation of $34.26. Rational, mainstream America is supporting Donald Trump because he supports us! We support Donald Trump because he supports and defends our values! It also proves that those who be with us are more than they who be with the opposition party!

    If we want to drain the swamp, let us start with a dam on the funding.

    While both parties are successful at obtaining small donations, it is still the big dollar contributions that drive the policies after election. Despite what our Conservative Supreme Court has said, money is not speech IMHO. Money is a corruptible force when wielded by the already rich and powerful. In other words, some money has more rights to influence government than other money. How sad a commentary.

    We ought to take a page from other more successful Democracies in the world, limit contributions and provide state support for campaigns. Let's drain the swamp of big money influence, and let the actual voter be the judge of the future, not Big Money.

    These election cycles keep on getting shorter and shorter.
