According to an RNC spokesperson, the fundraising — at a clip of $1 million per hour-came to the Trump re-election campaign and joint fundraising committees Trump victory and Trump MAGAC (Make America Great Again ” – Committee).
Minutes later, RNC Communications Director, Michael Ahrens, tweeted: “For those of you counting, that’s more than the 5 highest polling Democrats—combined.”
Ahrens referred to the top five polling Democratic candidates in fundraising during the 24 hours after they announced their presidential bids. Among them, the former Vice-President Joe Biden raked in $6.3 million, and sen Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., brought in $5.9 million, with the other, raise significantly less than that.
But none of the candidates meets $ 20 million in the first quarter.
Sanders brought in $18.2 million in the first 41 days of his campaign; Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., brought in $12 million in the first three months of this year; former Rep. Beto O’rourke of Texas, raised $9.4 million; South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg raised $7.1 million.

But Trump’s campaign and the President himself, dismissed the recent polling.
