Straight up the Democratic committees held more than a 93 percent advantage in terms of cash-on-hand over their Republican counterparts as of the end of August. Even when debts and obligations are taken into account, the Democrats cash-on-hand lead is $38,876,843.98 to $20,594,054.27, nearly an 89 percent lead.
And these numbers just aren't moving much. As you can see above, the Democratic committees outraised the Republican committees in August while being outspent by their Republican counterparts. Accordingly, the Democrats' cash-on-hand advantage actually grew last month. If the Republicans are to have any hope of keeping the Democrats from growing their majorities on Capitol Hill (let alone retake either chamber), they're going to have to take a bite out of the Democrats' massive lead at some point. And the closer and closer we get to election day the less and less likely it seems that the Republicans will get their acts together.
