The Clinton Campaign Spent between $1.5 to $2 Billion in an effort to buy her and her handlers way in to The White House.

Bloomberg has spent $400 Million so far.
And other candidates are spending money at a furious pace. Donald Trump spent only $225 Million and was outspent 6-1 by Clinton in 2016.

So the question is here:

How much money will The Democrat Party need to spend to buy The White House?

I don't believe they have enough to do that.

Bloomberg's commercials have become tres-annoying, and are having a bit of an opposite of the desired effect.

Money is not the problem with Bloomberg. The problem is he's no more likeable than Hillary.

The poll choices are inadequate. Bloomberg buying the nomination will cost the Dems their party - it will fracture into the Corporatist Wing and the Communist one.

This makes him a tad more likable than hiLIARy - at least he's being honest about being a Nanny Stater:

The Poll actually asks how much Money it will Cost The Dems to Buy The White House regardless of who is the nominee.

Below I will post "Candidate Committee Money" This does not take in to account Dark Money, or people who fund their campaigns with their own money.

Bernie Sanders has $100 Million, and guess what, this is a good way to get rich. They don't actually have to give that money back when their campaigns are over if they don't spend it all.

Bernie Sanders (D)
Sen. Bernie Sanders is an independent senator from Vermont running as a Democrat. He ran for president in 2016, and although he lost in the primary to Hillary Clinton, he still has a fiercely dedicated fan base of economically progressive liberals backing him. Sanders’ candidacy also made more visible the Democratic Socialists of America, a far-left political organization that often operates within the Democratic party.

Seems to me, people like Bloomberg, Trump and Steyer lose money when they run, as they use a lot of their own personal fortunes, but someone like Bernie Sanders. Elizabeth Warren, and Biden can become a Multi Millionaires over night, because they are allowed to keep the money they don't spend.

The Clinton Campaign Spent between $1.5 to $2 Billion in an effort to buy her and her handlers way in to The White House.

Bloomberg has spent $400 Million so far.

So the question is here:

You can’t buy the White House. You can buy exposure but the White House goes to who the people vote for.

They sure as Hell are trying to buy it though. Look at Old Bernie with $100 Million Dollars.

What is a Communist doing with $100 Million?

Shouldn't he be sharing that with everyone on The USMB??

Pretty sure this is a thread that you may not see a Single Leftist Lying Commie, because the sheer amounts of money these Candidates have completely Refutes their Socialist Communist Narrative..
