Thoughts on how much Dr. Paul has raised.Submitted by RonPaul818 on Thu, 09/27/2007 - 04:47
I have read several guesses about how much Dr. Paul has raised.
Well here are my thoughts and I could be way off.
Each time I have donated the number in the confirmation T35779-92856328 has gone up. T35779 I believe represents amounts of donations. My last donation number before yesterday was T28098-91307042. Since my donation yesterday ($179k mark) over 258k has come in.
T35779 was my donation from yesterday, which by the way, maxed me out.
If the average donation over the course has been $20.00 then you could guess that as of yesterday he was over $7 million.
As we know here, for the $500,000 pledge, the average donation seems to be running at about $90 bucks per. The last counts I had was: count=4776&sum=437257.75. Count = donors, Sum = $ amount.
I believe Ron Paul is in the total donations area of 38,000 online and at $20.00 would be 7.6 million.
Now we know he spent about 600k the second quarter. That would bring him to 7 million. I believe he has spent a little more (radio ads and higher rent/traveling costs, so I will guess estimate $800k. That would leave him $6.2 million based on $20 per donations. Sounds reasonable right?
Well this might be, but then I stop to think. How about all the checks he has received at rallies and through the mail. We hear about the great online days, but who knows how much has been handed to him or mailed. Maybe the checks are included in the count and maybe not. And what about the last 4776 donations that produced at $90.00 a clip? What if this brings the average donation totals up to $30 per donation.
I think it is reasonable with another $500k that Ron Paul has 9 million or more. Maybe even 10 million or more.
One thing I do know for sure is that there has not been candidate ever before that would have me up doing this math. I believe in Ron Paul and I hope my guess is right.
