Every week or so, some liberal journalist writes a piece claiming that Trump’s influence on Republican voters is weakening. It’s like they’re trying to wish it into existence.
But as they say, money talks.
And if Trump’s fundraising numbers are any indication, he is doing just fine.
Breitbart News reports:
Donald Trump Remains a Fundraising Juggernaut: $19M in Q1, $124M on Hand
Former President Donald Trump remains a fundraising juggernaut over a year out of the White House, with over $19 million raised in the last quarter and $124 million in cash spread across all of his entities.
The former president’s fundraising numbers, first reported by Fox News, between the three fundraising entities — Trump’s Save America PAC, Save America JFC, and MAGA PAC — have hauled in over $19 million between January and March and have $124 million in cash on hand.
During the last fundraising quarter, the committees say an average donation of $28.04 came from 679,445 contributions. The committees also had 98.4 percent of the donations made under $200.
The former president’s latest fundraising haul shows that Trump is still widely popular within the Republican party. In fact, a poll last month showed that Trump held a significant 52 points lead in a potential 2024 Republican primary ahead of any closest competitor, while another poll showed that he was also far more popular than Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) in 2022 midterm swing states.
Notice how this liberal media outlet manages to make the story a negative:
Former President Donald Trump’s Save America group has quickly become one of the top Republican fundraising organizations. But so far it has been stingy with its spending, according to a @Reuters analysis https://t.co/Jg36bRaPRp pic.twitter.com/tnachS6FaM

Bloomberg is a little more honest:
The Save America Joint Fundraising Committee, which raises money for Trump’s political operations, took in $9 million from donors who gave less than $200 https://t.co/tBFNGUisLl

With this kind of cash on hand, it certainly seems like Trump is going to run again.
