“Beto O’Rourke’s presidential campaign was beginning to look like a self-indulgent midlife crisis road trip—until that number: $6.1 million. His self-reported first-day fundraising total once again made Beto not just a candidate, but a movement. Online giving is largely powered by small donors, and in this Democratic presidential primary, small donors are the coin of the realm.
O’Rourke emphasized two more numbers on Wednesday: 128,000, for the number of unique contributions to his campaign in its first 24 hours, and $47, for the average amount. This opened a new competition to determine whose movement is bigger … and whose donations are smaller. O’Rourke earned a bit more cash than Bernie Sanders did on his first day, reporters noted, but Sanders had more donors, more than 225,000, and a smaller average contribution of $27. (By the end of Sanders’ first week, his donor base was up to 360,000 people.)”

  1. Watch this video with peace of mind. Head to https://NordVPN.com/TYT or use code TYT to get 75% off a 3-year plan. For a limited time, use code TYT for a free month.

  2. Small doners are the only real voice that the majority has.. they ARE the American people. Corporations are running the USA, you actually thought this was a democracy? 😂🤣🤣🤣 Try again

  3. HA. HA. HA. HA. ..MAN. O….MAN… SET. DOWN. .STUPID. ASSSSS. .

  4. Bill Scher???? more like Bill Shill

  5. So he’s saying the most popular candidate getting more of a chance isn’t fair…WTF

  6. Politico and The Hill are establishment platforms that are used to smear the left. How many anti Bernie hit pieces have they published? Countless.

  7. Corporate media like Politico are as illegitimate as FOX fake news. Promoting corporatism as they do, much like FOX, is promoting fascism, the literal enemy of America. They are pushing un-American corporatism, the ideological enemy of what it is to be American. That is how far down into the abyss the corporate media has gone, into full blown treason.

  8. WoW THE M.S.M. WANT's TO SUCK TO THE RIGHT. REALLY HARD MUST BE SOME CORPORATE PIMP JERKED THEIR CHAIN!!!

  9. THE DEMOCRATES MOTTO SHOULD BE LET US TRY TO CHANGE THE THING's WE CAN. EXCEPT THE THING's WE CAN'T CHANGE. AND WE PRAY FOR THE WISDOM TO KNOW THE DIFFERENCE!!!

  10. WE NEED TO SECURE OUR VOTING SYSTEM. IF OUR VOTING SYSTEM IS NOT SECURE THEN HOW CAN THE PEOPLE HAVE FAITH IN A GOVERNMENT THEY DID NOT CHOOSE LIKE THE ONE WE HAVE NOW!!!

  11. The ONLY legal donations should be from registered voters eligible to vote in that particular jurisdiction. Donors from NY shouldn't be able to influence an election in Texas any more than Russians should influence American elections.

    And the total maximum amount any voter can contribute to a campaign should be set so that most voters in that jurisdiction can afford to contribute the maximum amount. It is totally undemocratic to allow the rich to have more influence than everybody else.

  12. Keep the Truth Coming and Hard Hitting!

  13. Are they big donors, or do they have big boners. I wonder which, maybe both.

  14. Vezzini: "They are turning it into a small donor money chase. This supports the fringe."
    Inigo: "You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means."

  15. lmao "if you have MORE small donors and are receiving money from the people who will vote,then youre a 'fringe' candidate" jesus christ imagine the mental gymnastics you have to do to arrive at that conclusion.

  16. Who wou,d downvote this video, but lobbyists and D.C. insiders?

  17. I think that the concern is that the small dollar donations will run out. Especially in the general. Hopefully the small donations will keep rolling in so that the candidates can have adequate tv and radio representation.

  18. Right wing bots are out 😂😂

  19. That's all about the wealthy and powerful trying desperately to maintain their control!

  20. Bill has zero credibility and should just resign.
