Last week, Donald Trump took the lead in a few key polls, including in critical battleground states like Iowa, New Hampshire, and Ohio.
Now, he's turning to his grassroots supporters to help build on this momentum -- take a look below at the email he sent yesterday morning.
Diane, this is a big deal. More than two million people have donated to Trump's campaign. He raised $90 million in August, and his fundraising has been getting better month after month.
This is no joke. If his team keeps up this pace, they could finally outraise us this month. And it couldn't come at a worse moment, right as early and absentee voting is starting.
We need 87 people from your community to pitch in $3 or more before the mid-month deadline on Thursday to keep our fundraising on track to beat Trump. Will you be one of them? (We'll send you a free sticker to say thanks!)
I appreciate your continued support.

I wanted to make sure that you've seen the latest poll numbers.
They are OUTSTANDING - and I've included some of the key details below.
Now we're counting on supporters like you to get involved with the campaign and help keep our momentum going.
I hope you will JOIN us with a $100, $75, $50, or $25 contribution at this critical time. We're now less than two months from Election Day.
According to recent polls our campaign is:
✓ Leading Crooked Hillary nationally by two percentage points.
✓ Trouncing Crooked Hillary among independent voters, by a stunning 20-point margin.
✓ Winning in the crucial states of Iowa, New Hampshire and Ohio.
✓ Surging in the swing state of Virginia, closing a double digit gap to within the margin of error in just two short weeks.
✓ In a dead heat in the traditionally Democratic-voting states of Maine, Michigan and Wisconsin.
✓ More trusted by voters on the most important issues of the day, including the economy and terrorism.
✓ Considered more honest and trustworthy than Crooked Hillary by a HUGE margin.
These polls are devastating news for the Clinton campaign. Every attempt she has made to dishonestly attack me and my campaign has backfired.
We are winning, we have the momentum, and we can't let up now - that's why getting you involved is so important.
Friend, my promise to you is that I will not rest, I will not waver and I will not squander this momentum.
Please join our efforts at this critical time, to help build on our current momentum and keep up our fight to Make America Great Again!
Donald J. Trump
