Fundraising Boost for Biden Despite Debate Performance


Just days after his lackluster performance in the first presidential debate against Donald Trump, President Joe Biden’s reelection campaign has seen a surge in fundraising, raking in $27 million. According to a Biden campaign spokesperson, the campaign received a boost in donations following the debate, with many supporters eager to back the Democratic nominee.

The fresh influx of funds comes on the heels of a significant fundraising haul in May, when Biden’s campaign, the Democrat National Convention, Biden PACs, and committees combined to raise $85 million. However, Trump’s campaign and the Republican National Committee outpaced the Democrats, collecting a staggering $141 million during the same period.

The debate’s outcome has led to a scramble among Democrats to reassure donors that Biden remains a viable candidate in the November election. The post-debate fundraising push is aimed at stabilizing support and demonstrating the campaign’s strength despite Biden’s perceived weaknesses in the debate.

Trump’s campaign and supporters, on the other hand, appear to be gaining momentum. The former president’s debate performance was widely praised by critics, who noted his preparedness, crisp delivery, and effective attacks on Biden’s policies, including his stance on the border, crime, and foreign affairs.

In recent weeks, Trump has been steadily gaining ground, with a new poll showing him leading Biden in Nevada, a state that has consistently voted Democratic since 2008. The Trump campaign’s strong fundraising and perceived momentum may be contributing to his growing popularity among voters.
