Tulsi Post-Debate Rise (Updated)
Update: Tulsi Now at 89,051 donors as of 10:46 PM Pacific Time according to the front page of Tulsi2020.com. That's a gain of about 2,000 in the past day--the pace continues.
One hour before her debate appearance, Tulsi had 81,880 unique donors to her campaign. As of yesterday, she had 87,071, a rise of 5,191 donors in less than 3 days. A definite spike in her rate of gain.
She has about 2 months to reach the 130,000 unique donor goal, so again, if you know people who might have watched the debate, had a favorable impression of Tulsi, but who have not yet donated, please give them encouragement, even if it is only $1.
Tulsi2020.com is the easiest way to get to a donation page.
We have not had any post-debate polling yet--probably on Monday we'll start to see that. I find it very interesting that Tulsi polled at 3% recently in Texas, and at 3% in a The Economist/YouGov national poll before the debates. Considering she had been polling in the 0%-2% range before, she has been making some headway.
I think the debates did have an effect on people. My personal take is that Biden and Bernie lost some momentum there (Harris destroyed Biden, and Bernie just did not come across very effectively), and where will people on the fence about those two move?
Tulsi's campaign will next be spending time in New Hampshire from July 4-6.
Out of the first 4 states, I think New Hampshire might be Tulsi's toughest. Perhaps it is because Bernie and Warren are from around that neck of the woods--not sure really. But I hope she spends much more time in Iowa, Nevada, and South Carolina, not to mention SuperTuesday states like California, Colorado, Texas, Virginia, North Carolina, Maine, Minnesota, Oklahoma, Utah, etc., where Biden might have held a lock, but debate performances might have loosened his grip a lot and where a being soldier might resonate.
