Polls—what polls? With Elizabeth Warren edging Joe Biden in the polls, Bernie Sanders announced Tuesday an impressive third-quarter haul that beats Warren's first and second quarters combined, ABC News reports. And that's without Sanders tapping the big-money, private events that Biden, Pete Buttigieg, Kamala Harris, and others rely on. "Bernie is proud to be the only candidate running to defeat Donald Trump who is 100% funded by grassroots donations—both in the primary and in the general," says Sanders’ campaign manager Faiz Shakir. Buttigieg, who led last quarter with $24.8 million, still boasted an impressive haul, per the AP. The Q3 numbers so far:

  • Bernie Sanders: $25.3 million
  • Pete Buttigieg: $19.1 million
