Money In Elections: The Other Side

Apparently 2/3 of Americans believe money buys elections, hence the big effort by The Left to do away with that Citizens United decision by the Supreme Court. This article here points out that's not quite true: 

'...the general rule is that money chases winners rather than creates winners. People give to candidates they think are likely to win, and incumbents (who almost always win) and candidates in safe districts still raise money, even if they’re not challenged. On the flip side, donors and parties don’t waste support on long-shot races.".
