National polls show President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump neck-and-neck in the 2024 presidential race. But, with seven months to go until voters cast their ballots, Biden is dominating his Republican opponent on another major benchmark – fundraising.

In March, Biden and Democrats reported having more than twice as much cash on hand than Trump and Republicans.

Money isn’t everything – and doesn’t necessarily determine the success of a campaign. However, Biden’s cash advantage could allow the Democrat to run a more aggressive campaign, especially in the handful of sunbelt and midwestern swing states where small margins of voters could determine the fate of the race.

For more insight on the contest, here’s a deeper look at what we know about Biden and Trump’s fundraising hauls so far.

Biden’s fundraising haul

The Biden campaign raised an astounding $90 million in March, bolstered by a major donation drive following the president’s State of the Union address and a celebrity-packed fundraiser in New York City headlined by former Presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton.

The monthly fundraising total includes contributions to the Democratic National Committee, as well as joint fundraising committees.

March was also the campaign’s best grassroots fundraising month since launching, it said. So far, 1.6 million people have donated to the Democratic incumbent’s re-election bid.

In total, Democrats reported having $192 million on hand, more than double the $93.1 million Republicans reported.

Biden’s campaign has used the money to hire staff, open offices, fund a multi-day swing across major battleground states and launch a multimillion-dollar advertising campaign.

Trump’s war chest

Trump’s campaign and the Republican National Committee said they raised $65.6 million in March. Since Trump clinched the delegates needed for the GOP nomination last month, the RNC and his campaign have begun sharing resources.
