With the arrival of yesterday’s FEC campaign finance reporting deadline, we thought it’d be fun to take a look back at Hillary Clinton’s past campaign finance history and her extensive, long-standing ties to Wall Street. Between contributions to her various campaigns and to the Clinton Foundation, Wall Street has spent at least $26 million to benefit and support Hillary Clinton. And as the graphic below illustrates, almost $19 million of that total has gone straight into her campaign coffers. Sources and methodology below the infographic (click to enlarge):
With Hillary Clinton’s upcoming campaign “launch” this weekend really more of a “reset” (and we know how well resets have gone for her in the past), now is a good opportunity to assess how things have gone so far since her actual campaign launch back in April.
WASHINGTON – Today American Crossroads released a new polling memorandum from Public Opinion Strategies and Axis Research showing that, in the twelve battleground states that will decide the 2016 presidential election, Hillary Clinton has weak ballot support, is viewed negatively by close to half of all respondents, and faces a severe trust deficit with voters.
The polling memo can be viewed here.
