1,000 millones de dólares en gasto de campaña para que OBAMA sea reelegido

Obama’s reelection campaign could hit billion-dollar mark.

1,000 millones de dólares en gasto de campaña para que OBAMA sea reelegido.

La campaña para la reelección de Obama podría golpear la marca de mil millones de dólares.

¿Será el Presidente Obama el primer hombre de mil millones de dólares?
Recaudó $ 750 millones en la campaña de 2008, y ya hay rumores de que la operación de recolección de dinero en efectivo para su reelección en 2012 alcanzará la cifra una vez inimaginable de 1,000 millones de dólares.

Lanza campaña a través de un correo electrónico

El mandatario de Estados Unidos, Barack Obama, anunció ayer lunes 4 de abril, a través de un correo electrónico, que buscará su reelección presidencial, en su mensaje instó a sus simpatizantes a “proteger el progreso” que ha realizado en su periodo, pese a las dificultades.

Obama aseguró que su campaña será más centrada y más innovadora que en 2008.

“No es imposible ni poco realista, en absoluto, reunir un billón de dólares, dado el monto recaudado y gastado en 2008.  Además los lobbies republicanos gastarán más de 500 mullones en su contra”, dijo un ex funcionario del gobierno de Obama.

 Una mirada a la tendencia de la recaudación de fondos para los candidatos presidenciales en las elecciones pasadas sugiere un doble efecto cada cuatro años.

 En 2008, Obama recaudó unos alucinantes 745 millones, mientras que el senador John McCain (republicano por Arizona) recaudó $ 368 millones. El gasto total, incluyendo los candidatos de otros partidos, ascendió a $ 1,300 millones, según el Center for Responsive Politics.

 Cuatro años antes, el presidente George W. Bush gastó 367 millones de dólares, mientras que el senador John Kerry (demócrata por Massachusetts) recaudó $ 328 millones. El gasto total en 2004 fue aproximadamente la mitad de 2008: $ 718 millones.

 La diferencia clave entre 2004 y 2008 fue que Obama se convirtió en la primera persona en no optar por la financiación pública para las elecciones generales, desde la aprobación del sistema actual de financiamiento de las campañas, a raíz del escándalo de Watergate.

 

La decisión de Obama – anunciada en junio de 2008 con bombos y platillos – resultó decisiva, ya que su recaudación de fondos masiva en los últimos cinco meses de la campaña le permitió aplastar a McCain en la televisión y en todos los estados indecisos.

 

Dado el éxito de Obama después de renunciar a la financiación pública en la campaña de elecciones generales de 2008, es casi seguro que ni el presidente ni el candidato republicano participarán mediante ese sistema para las elecciones generales de 2012.

 

Otros tres factores sugieren que la idea de Obama como un candidato de mil millones de dólares en el 2012 no es tan descabellada.

 

En primer lugar, recaudó 750 millones dólares cuando se lanzó para senador. Ahora estará en carrera para dobletear como presidente, lo que debería permitirle recaudar más, gracias al poderío que confieren los puestos a ocupar.

 

En segundo lugar, el continuo desarrollo y maduración de la recaudación de fondos por Internet en los últimos cuatro años significa que los $ 500 millones – sí, has leído bien – que Obama recaudó ON LINE en 2008 y podrían superarse en el 2012, señaló Ben Ginsberg, un abogado republicano de alto nivel que se desempeñó como asesor de campaña presidencial de 2008 del ex gobernador de Massachusetts Mitt Romney.

 

En tercer lugar, el crecimiento de influencia del Partido Republicano en los grupos de fuera – personificados por Américan Crossroads, que gastaron $ 70 millones en las parciales del 2010 – debería ayudar a aumentar los donativos demócratas para Obama. (Aún no está claro si  los pro-demócratas del exterior podrían ayudar a sifonear donaciones a territorio estadounidense.

 

Sin embargo sigue habiendo cierto escepticismo – incluso entre sus partidarios – sobre la capacidad del presidente para alcanzar esa cifra tan alta.

Obama’s reelection campaign could hit billion-dollar mark. 

Will President Obama be the first billion-dollar man?

He raised and spent $750 million in the 2008 campaign, and there is already speculation that the cash-collection operation for his 2012 reelection bid will crest the once-unimaginable sum of $1 billion raised. (That’s a one and nine zeros. Nine!)

By Chris Cillizza Washington Post Staff Writer  Sunday, December 12, 2010;

“It’s not unrealistic at all, given the amount raised and spent in 2008 and the amount Republican interest groups and 527s will spend against him,” said a former Obama administration official.

A look at the trend line of fundraising for presidential candidates over the past several elections suggests a doubling effect every four years.

In 2008, Obama raised an eye-popping $745 million, while Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) collected $368 million. Total spending, including third-party candidates, amounted to $1.3 billion, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.

Four years earlier, President George W. Bush brought in $367 million while Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) collected $328 million. Total spending in 2004 was about half that of 2008′s: $718 million.

The key difference between 2004 and 2008 was that Obama became the first person to opt out of public financing for the general election since the adoption of the current campaign finance system in the wake of the Watergate scandal.

Obama’s decision – announced in June 2008 to much fanfare – proved close to decisive as his massive fundraising over the last five months of the campaign allowed him to overwhelm McCain on television in every swing state.

Given Obama’s success after forgoing public financing in the 2008 general-election campaign, it’s a virtual certainty that neither the president nor the Republican nominee will participate in that system for the 2012 general election.

Three other factors suggest that the idea of Obama as a billion-dollar candidate in 2012 is not so far-fetched.

First, he collected $750 million while running as a senator. He’ll now be running as a president, which should allow him to clean up financially to an even greater extent, thanks to the power of incumbency.

Second, the continued development and maturation of Internet fundraising over the past four years means that the $500 million – yes, you read that right – that Obama raised online in 2008 could well be topped in 2012, noted Ben Ginsberg, a top Republican lawyer who served as an adviser to former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney‘s 2008 presidential bid.

Third, the growth of a shadow Republican Party of outside groups – epitomized by American Crossroads, which spent $70 million on the 2010 midterms – should help fuel Democratic donations to Obama. (It remains unclear whether a Democratic-aligned outside group – or groups – will form to siphon off some of those donations.)

While the pieces are clearly in place for Obama to crest the $1 billion fundraising mark in 2012, some skepticism remains – even among his supporters – about the president’s ability to reach that lofty mark.

One Obama fundraiser points to the difference between 2012 and 2008, when the absence of an incumbent candidate meant open primaries on both sides: “We will have very few events that drive online spikes, and the president probably won’t do as many events as even Bush in 2003 and 2004.”

Michael Toner: It’ll take half a billion dollars to beat Obama

‘It will be very difficult for any Republican to compete with Obama without … a half billion dollars,” Toner says. | Reuters Close
By ALEXANDER BURNS | 1/26/11

The Republican nominee for president in 2012 will have to raise at least half a billion dollars to compete with President Barack Obama’s fundraising machine, one former chairman of the Federal Election Commission writes in a new book.

In “Pendulum Swing,” an analysis of the 2010 midterm elections published by the University of Virginia Center for Politics, former FEC chief Michael Toner writes that election watchers “haven’t yet fully focused on Obama’s 2012 fundraising advantage.”

“Without credible primary opponents, as is likely, Obama will likely be able to roll over hundreds of millions of dollars of excess primary funds directly into his general election campaign,” Toner writes. “Obama in 2008 was forced to burn through more than $400 million of his $750 million campaign war chest just to defeat Hillary Clinton for the Democratic nomination.”

Toner, who was chief counsel of the Republican National Committee and a legal adviser to Arizona Sen. John McCain’s 2008 campaign, says the GOP’s most serious hopefuls will have to opt out of public campaign financing if they hope to keep pace with the president.

“Given President Obama’s decision in 2008 to turn down public funds not only for the primaries but for the general election as well — and the near certainty that Obama will do so again in 2012 — all of the top-tier Republican candidates will likely have to do so as well,” Toner argues.

He sets the 2012 fundraising bar at $500 million: “It will be very difficult for any Republican to compete with Obama without raising a minimum of a half billion dollars.”

Toner’s prediction comes as Republicans on Capitol Hill are seeking to eliminate the public financing system entirely, calling it unnecessary.

Oklahoma Rep. Tom Cole, former National Republican Congressional Committee chairman, who sponsored the legislation, pointed to Obama’s successful public-money-free campaign as a reason to eliminate the program.

“The idea that Americans need this program in order to support candidates is absurd,” Cole said in a statement. His bill is expected to get a vote in the House on Wednesday.

Government funding of elections comes from citizens who choose to send $3 from their federal taxes into the public-financing system. Candidates who choose to participate in the system must abide by stricter spending limits than candidates who do not.

The White House opposes Cole’s legislation and said in a statement Tuesday that it would “expand the power of corporations and special interests in the nation’s elections.”

“Pendulum Swing,” which was released Tuesday, was edited by University of Virginia professor Larry Sabato and includes chapters from dozens of other contributors.
