  1. Hey, Chris here — campaign fundraising is an important indicator of a candidate's popularity early in a race. Why does money matter so much?

  2. So when a progressive candidate says it’s all about the benjamins for Israel it’s anti Semitic, but when you photo shop dollar bills around the only Jewish candidate you all are not anti Semitic???? I will vote bernie or in hatred vote trump #bernieorbust

  3. I think Bernie would be the best Democratic candidate but needs to be clear on how much taxes are going to go up. Aside from that I think Bernie is the Liberal Icon the man got tons of voters to vote during the primarily elections (literally walked everyone from a rally he hosted)

  4. Social media is playing a huge role and you don't need a lot of money for that. CNN is corporate media, why should I believe a thing they say?!

  5. Wow Does Chris suck, he fits in perfectly at CNN. Having more money in your campaign early in the race just means the rich donors like think that candidate is the most likely to do their bidding. CNN is doing all it can to put another pro-war corporate Democrat in office. That didn't work so well last time.

  6. CNN, DARPA BRAIN CHIP, AND THE REST OF THE WORLD INVOLVED, DON'T LET THERE BE A WW3, AND THE PEOPLE WHO REQUEST TO GO TO JUPITER CAN GO, WITH MUCH TO FOR US TO TAKE CARE OF, WE AS THE PEOPLE HAS CLEAN UP THERE MESS, I SAW BERNIE IN TEARS, AT THE WHITE HOUSE CONFERENCE WHEN HALF OF THE REPUBLICANS WERE VERY HAPPY, AND THAT TELLS ME ALOT!!!!

  7. Name recognition and some fame will effectively get you elected. Example: Trump. That's why so many run for president now. If not the top job there are dozens of high-level Cabinet and administration jobs. And then the Congress. They all have to raise their profile. Beto will not get POTUS but I hope Texas knows him better now.

  8. Sad to see so much WASTED MONEY$$$$$!!   It could have gone to a good cause., But most of the Dems that donated deserve to have their money wasted!!   WhatChaGot??  An Indian…A Mexican….A Gay Spartacus….An Angry Jamaican Child who thinks she's black……..And a ButtPlug…..and maybe "The Groper of Children"…..WoW!   Tough Competition.  TRUMP2020

  9. Why the sudden need for the Democratic Presidential hopefuls to get boastful of how much money they are raising?
    Could it be a type of game show where the “winner” will be picked by the DNC to be the candidate at the convention based on the final dollar amount accumulated?
    Could this be hypocrisy on parade as the Democrats openly behave in the manner they “accuse” the Republicans of secretly behaving for the last 100 years?

    Hmmmm……….

  10. No progressives are saying you don't need money for fuck sake. It's where & who that money is coming from is the major concern. 5 mil from voters vs 5 mil from Oil/gas/insurance/banks/military contractors etc.

  11. Let's allow illegals into our country and vote. Then allow a Sixteen-year-old kid to vote. and last, let criminals vote. Also, do away with our electoral college. that the Founding Fathers established. Thus assuring states such as California and New York would pick our President every time. The Founding Fathers purposely made Washington DC ( The District of Columbia ) and not a state because of the unfair political impact …Liberals now want to make it a state …All of these things should open your eyes to the criminal agenda of the Democrats Liberal Lunatics are trying to destroy our country

  12. Farmers have one of the highest suicide rates in the country and now they have a rich dork like Robert Irishman O'Rourke telling them you need give up some of your crops to fight climate. He definitely has a White rich elitist mindset. But I guess when your wife's family is worth billions you can go around telling everyone else to give up your fare share. Why don't you pay to fight climate change rich boy?!

  13. For someone like Bernie it means massive ground root support. For Beto and Kamala it means corporations like CNN's parent company strangling the middle class and continuing the endless wars.
