The Financial Race Towards the Presidency

by
,

The race for the White House is always a race for funds. Monday’s Iowa caucus sheds a spotlight on the correlation of money in the coffers and success at the polls.

While he didn’t come out on top in the Iowa Caucus, Donald Trump surely has proven he knows how to make the biggest bang for the buck. The business mogul isn’t even in the top ten of the best funded candidates (of both parties) but still made second place of the Republican candidates in Iowa.

The Republican winner is Ted Cruz, who is the second best funded in the GOP camp. Jeb Bush on the contrary, while being the best funded Republican candidate (second overall after Democrat Hillary Clinton) only made sixth place for the Republicans in the Iowa caucus.

While Cruz has a comfortable lead over Trump in the caucus in the Republican camp, Democratic hopeful Clinton has the most money of all candidates, democratic and overall. She virtually tied with second best funded Democrat Bernie Sanders in the caucus, who’s only in fifth place of the best funded overall.
