Trump raked in more than $3.2 million, topping every other Democratic presidential candidate in donations in the state.

The analysis found that Trump had the highest percentage of small-dollar donations. Almost 93 percent of his contributions from Californians were less than $100 dollars. More than 89 percent of those who contributed to Sanders's campaign gave small-dollar donations, while 84 percent of contributions to Warren's campaign were small dollar.

A recent survey from Quinnipiac University Poll showed Harris leading 2020 Democratic presidential hopefuls in her home state, narrowly edging out Biden. 

Harris has seen a bump in the polls following the first Democratic debate, in which she confronted Biden over his comments on working with segregationist senators and his 1970s stance on busing black students into majority white schools. In most major polls, however, Biden has led the crowded field of more than two dozen Democrats.
