The billionaire running for president now seeks to convince millions of Americans to give him money.That one-day haul from Trump's first fundraising appeal is early evidence of the digital magic it takes to fill campaign coffers Bernie Sanders-style – millions of people, each giving a few bucks.Since that initial email, the Trump campaign has sent at least four more solicitations, including one Sunday from chief strategist Paul Manafort touting the fundraising success of the week and urging supporters to keep up the momentum.Each donation is divided, with 80 percent going to the Trump campaign and 20 percent to the RNC.For example, the campaign switched domain names recently, tripping up spam filters, and Trump may be buying email lists of people who don't want to hear from him.By contrast, Clinton's spam rate on fundraising emails is typically about 5.7 percent, and her rate at which people open the emails holds steady at about 14 percent, Sather said.Trump has begun leveraging his social media fan base for cash.Dale "Boomer" Ranney, a South Carolina-based volunteer for Trump, recently gave $125 to the campaign.
