Private Superforecasting Workshop asks:
How much cash on hand will the following *three Donald Trump-affiliated political action committees (PACs) have combined as of 31 December 2021?
By midyear 2021, former President Trump's political groups had over $102 million in cash on hand (Politico, ABC News, donaldjtrump.com). The question will be suspended on 31 December 2021 and the outcome determined using data as reported by the Federal Election Commission for the second half of 2021, expected in early 2022. For the purposes of this question, the three relevant Trump-affiliated PACs are:
- Save America (FEC.gov - Save America, Mid-year Report 2021)
- Make America Great Again Action Inc (FEC.gov - Make America Great Again Action Inc, Mid-year Report 2021)
- Make America Great Again PAC (FEC.gov - Make America Great Again PAC, Mid-year Report 2021)
NOTE 7 October 2021: *This week, a new Super PAC, "MAGA, Again!," announced that it was replacing "MAGA Action" as the only Trump-approved Super PAC. As part of this, "Net assets of MAGA Action will be transferred to MAGA, Again!" Therefore, the cash on hand for MAGA, Again! will be included in the combined total for resolution (The Hill).
The question closed "Between $100 million and $150 million, inclusive" with a closing date of 1 January 2022.
