Democrats’ impeachment effort, coupled with the booming Trump economy, have fueled President Trump’s re-election efforts and fired up the Republican base. In January of 2020 alone, the GOP and Trump re-election campaign raised $60 million, leaving the Pro-Trump groups with $200 million cash-on-hand for 2020. Together, the RNC and Trump’s re-election effort have hauled in $525 million from the beginning of 2019 to now. 

These monster fundraising numbers come on the heels of President Trump's acquittal. Despite Democrats' efforts to impeach and remove him, a large majority of Republican and independent voters did not side with Democrats after the botched process in the House of Representatives.

Competing with this booming, record-breaking economy is an uphill battle for Democrats. Their swing-and-miss impeachment effort has only disenfranchised voters more. President Trump’s approval rating is at a record-high for his presidency, and voters are both satisfied with their current economic standings and hopeful about the future. 

These record-shattering fundraising numbers present a positive foreshadow for the GOP's efforts to keep President Trump in the White House come November.
