With Election Day just under 20 days, the Democratic presidential nominee looks to be in a formidable position both in terms of cash-at-hand and national polls against President Trump. On Wednesday, Biden announced that his campaign and affiliated committees raised a total of $383 million in September, breaking the record set by his own campaign in August. Biden’s campaign manager, Jen O’Malley Dillon, tweeted the fundraising details. “$383 million in September is a record for us. I’m proud of what Biden was able to build, but there’s still more work to do. A total of 1.1 million new donors were added last month, taking the total to 5.5 million donors throughout the campaign,” Dillon tweeted.
Biden’s fundraising has been a success mainly due to the grassroots supporters. Presently the campaign has $432 million in the bank, and $203 million of September funds were received from online donors. Although the campaign should release its financial reports for the previous month by October 20, President Trump’s campaign and the Republican National Committee are yet to release the fundraising details for September. It is expected that Biden will once again over perform Trump in terms of fundraising. In August, Biden raised $154 million more than Trump, $365 million to just $210 million by Trump. In September, Biden broke his own record by raising $18 million more than that of August. Biden’s fundraising rate increased only in the last few months; their pace increased from August after the selection of Senator Kamala Harris as the running mate.
Another aspect was the death of Supreme Court associate justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, where it garnered massive money-raising week for Democrats. Biden’s campaign earned more than $100 million with the help of the Act Blue online donor platform. The Democratic party is also leading in the latest poll by Quinnipiac University polls of likely voters, released on Wednesday. In the race to the US Senate, Democratic candidates Jon Oss off and Raphael Warnock are leading against their Republican counterparts as per the Georgia poll. The former vice president Joe Biden also continued his lead in Georgia. Biden holds a 7-point lead against Trump, with 51 percent supporting Biden to just 44 percent for Trump. Biden increased his support by one percentage point when compared to last month’s polling.
