Obviously, the Conservatives hold a MASSIVE advantage, approximately 4:1 compared with the Liberals. The NDP actually has more donors than the Liberals, the Greens quite respectable.
I would like to add the last two quarters for context. In the second quarter:
Conservative Party: $3.8-million from 36,800 contributors
Liberal Party: $1.3-million from 10,000 contributors
New Democratic Party: $720,000 from 11,800 contributors
Green Party: $200,000 from 2,800 contributors
Bloc Québécois: $27,900 from 360 contributors
This past result takes some of the sting out for the Liberals, because we see all the parties are down, with the exception of the Greens. That fact makes sense, given the fact the summer months occur in the third quarter.
The Liberals managed to raise only $531,141 from 4,365 donors, quarterly fundraising results posted Tuesday by Elections Canada show. The Conservatives raised almost $5.2-million from over 45,000 contributors, while the NDP attracted $1.2-million from nearly 15,000 donors. The Bloc Québecois, which gets money strictly from public subsidies paid to parties, raised slightly under $35,000.
The Green party, which has no representation in the House of Commons, raised almost $155,000.
What is concerning for the Liberals in the third quarter, the other parties didn't see a comparable percentage drop in the number of donors. However, it is interesting that the Conservative donor numbers have dropped in every quarter this year. Still, the numbers do show that the Liberals have a lot of work to do in re-inventing their brand, exciting the base and developing effective fundraising. Nothing in these results is surprising, but the longer things stay the same, the more it works to the Conservatives advantage.
