I haven't seen a thread dedicated to how much everyone thinks RP will get on Feb 1.

I'm going to be hoping for 2 million, realistically. The MLK money bomb fell short in lots of people's opinions, I think.

Maybe this debate will help? Hurt?

I'd love some input (preferably based on facts) on what we can be expecting.

I'm just a college student with pretty empty pockets but I'm donating my 51 bucks!

Go Ron Paul!

I think it'll be around 2.4 million this time. A little better than the last one. We're rallying the troops!

Also, do you think we'll reach the 8.4 million by Feb. 5?

You'd think that a fundraising request straight from the campaign would be obeyed lol.

There are no videos or advertising. People get excited when they see all that stuff.

this is how I look at it

we have around 5 days to raise around 4 million dollars SO

lets say we an kick out 3 million for feb 1st, we would only need to try and get another 1.4 million in the next 4 days AFTER the money bomb around 350k a day. I think we can get to the 8.4 million goal by the 5th no problem when looking at it this way.

Now me personally I hope we can get to the 9 million dollar goal instead of the 8.4 that he is asking for..

We can do that by doing the following

Donating + get 10 BRAND NEW DONATORS to join you on FEB 1ST!!!!!

Take the next day to locate those 10 people who will donate with you and then AFTER the money bomb day you can try and find 10 more people to donate on feb 2nd through feb 5th

I have been trying to spread this one, but I think realistically 1 million will be around what we hit. I pray I am way to low, but we have half the pledges of the MLK money bomb and few videos. The only plus side I see is the liberty08 pledges total nearly 200k.

MLK had alomst 8k pledges, this one has around 3k so far. I'm thinking we get about 1-1.2 Mil but i hope i am wrong and we can get atleast 2 Mil. We realistically only had a week to promote this one.

I forgot to add, we have been much much more proactive in talking to the meetups. Perhaps that will be a boost.

If you are a member of a Ron Paul meetup group, send an Email through the mailing list to everyone in the group! Remind them we have a big day tomorrow. I'm sending out a reminder now.

Liberty Tax 08 website shows $140,000+ with 282 pledges! Not a lot of individual donors, admittedly, but this should get the ball rolling. I really hope we can do better than the MLK moneybomb.

Remember, the Feb. 1 money bombs are a reponse to a direct fundraising request from headquarters to raise $8.4 million by Feb. 5. This time around, contributions will come from many donors who don't read Ron Paul Forums or any of the other Ron Paul Web sites.

This is true. I hope my low estimate is proved wrong. It would make my day to be extremely wrong on that guess.

I really don't know how well we will do.

Lets get as much in in the first hour as we can so the momentum gets going.

I also think a demographic money bomb may be an advantage to this campaign. This is not an "internet groupie" website. Many people, many reasons to support him, many differences in all of us, and I think the media would run with a money bomb that shows the differences in all of us. It would not matter how much you contributed, but your voice would be heard, in your demographic.

For me, I'm tired of the smirking, the ridicule, will not give up though, and will contribute, but this may give grassroots supporters an opportunity to show who we are really made up of and stop "jokes".

We are giving the media every opportunity to fix the prejudice, hopefully something like this will put to rest who and what the grassroots of this country consist of. Young, middle, elderly, no matter... it's not Ron Paul as much as his message.

I think alot of donors aren't signing up on the site, and most know tomorrow is the big money bomb, but alot don't know which website to sign up at.

I project around 4 Million. It's going to be much bigger than the last money bomb.

I'm in that category and I suspect many others are too. I just don't do sign-ups for money bombs.

I don't have a good feeling about this. It has about half the pledges of the MLK-day money bomb, and the pledges it does have are for 51 dollars (as opposed to 100 dollars for the one on January 21, 2008.)

There just has not been enough promotion of this money bomb.

A lot depends on how much the average donation is. If people really sacrifice on the last chance to get money into the campaign before Super Tuesday. Notice 252 pledges of 500$ is almost 200,000$. We need people to make huge donations and hopefully max out their donations if possible considering this is your last chance to make an impact.

That's my worry. It's looking like another "Rudy's reading list". That one had around 3,000 pledges, and this one is just at 4,000 as of now.

The five million before February 5th goal needs to be met, but it's looking like the official campaign finally bit off more than it could chew. Five million in like two weeks was just a little too ambitious.

I donate, but don't pledge. There are a lot of us. I just don't have the time to get to all the pledging sites. The most important thing is WHO DONATES! Let's have a little faith!:)

I am not signed up for any of the sites and plan on maxing out by donating 1100$ tommorow....

Ironically I can thank the fed rate cut for this extra money because I took a gamble and went long with a huge stakes on the GBP/USD right before the cut and watched it spike up..... Then shorted it on the way down..

The Forex markets kicks the US stocks markets ass in terms of hitting it big....:D

The pledges are spread out all over the place. I think there are 3 different sites promoting a money bomb tomorrow, Liberty08, the 51 site and the Faux News bomb.

The Nov. 5 and Dec 16. lists have been promoting the 1st as well.

51 years was implemented on very short notice. Subsequently, it hasn't had enough time to gain traction. So I expect maybe $1,000,000 dollars -- and this is being optimistic.

MLK was pledges for $10, not $100

look on rudys reading list we had 2,340 pledges and we cranked out 531,000$ approx
assuming the (pledge:cash earned) ratio stays the same we discover that each pledge equates to about $(531,000/2340)=226.9$ per pledge on average
given that the total subscribers to 51st anniversary bomb websites (for the 51$ Pledges) assuming no overlap of subscribers is about 4400 right now and will climb to approx 4700 at the current rapid last minute accelerate in pledge rates. the anniversary portion of the moneybomb will yield approx $1,067,000..given the likelihood that the meet up groups will add to this effect and the average donation will be higher that puts the range from $900,000-1,600,000 if ron sends out an urgent please donate all you can now email like huckabee has done on his front page for his competing moneybomb it would probably increase the feasible income expectancy range to 1.4 Million-2.8 Million and depending on how successful the subsidiary liberytax08 bomb is (it has over 150,000$ on pledges 300 pledges will likely multiply out to 750 such donations) so that has the possibility of making ron paul's moneybomb reach anywhere from 1.8 -3.2 Million
My best guess is 2.1 Million
I hope i have severely underestimated but if anything i am being optimistic

Wouldn't it be something special if on their 51st Wedding Anniversary the final total was $5.1 Million :)

It'll be tough to get that due to the fact this wasn't promoted as much as the other BIG days, but miracles can happen. :D

Okay, I think you're right. My mistake.

Still worried this will only be another "Rudy's Reading List" day (500,000+).

51 million would be more appropriate. i think we should shoot for that.

I'm not sure exactly where the optimism is coming from, but I sure hope I am pleasantly surprised.

Because the last money bomb was so recent and we haven't really gotten the word out about this one, I'm expecting around $1.3 million or so, and that might even be optimistic. I was under the impression we might be uniting under a fresh strategy soon, so I was pretty surprised when I found out a couple days ago that we were even having this money bomb. So...I'm hoping to be pleasantly surprised, but I'm realistically expecting that our lack of organization on this one might cost us.

Really, this particular moneybomb was "damned if you do, damned if you don't" - if we didn't do it, Paul wouldn't get much more money before Tuesday. Now that we are doing it, the modest expected turnout will unfortunately have the appearance that we're "losing steam," when really, we just haven't had enough time to regroup and muster our full strength yet.
