Pundits are passing this around in wonderment this morning:
Stunning –> Team Clinton has a 100% ad-spending edge in battlegrounds.
In June 2012, it was 54%-46% for Obama pic.twitter.com/0odrbXFSyU

According to NBC News, Hillary has spent $23 million in battleground states already and el Trumpo has spent exactly ZERO:
Every single 2016 presidential TV ad currently airing in a battleground state is either from Hillary Clinton’s campaign or the Democratic outside groups supporting her.
The opposition, by contrast, hasn’t spent a dime in these same battlegrounds – whether it’s Donald Trump’s campaign or Republican-leaning Super PACs.
So far in June, Clinton and the outside groups backing her have spent a total of $23.3 million on ads in the battleground states of Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Nevada New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio and Virginia, according to ad-spending data from SMG Delta.
Trump has said this morning that he won’t start hitting Clinton until after the convention… which is insane.
That’s a 100 percent-to-0 percent advantage for Clinton and the Democrats in these battlegrounds.
By comparison, in June of 2012, President Barack Obama and the outside groups supporting him had spent $45 million in ads in 11 battleground states, while Mitt Romney and his allies – like Crossroads GPS and Americans for Prosperity – spent $38 million.
That was a 54 percent-to-46 percent edge for Democrats back then.
And we LOST. Of course, Trump says that he’ll win states that were always Democrat, like California and New York. So far, that’s nothing but a pipedream.
So why is he waiting until the convention to hit back?!!
