If it feels like outside groups have an enormous amount of influence on Republican groups, that's because they do. Or they at least have a huge share of the money, according to new research from Theda Skocpol, an influential Harvard University political scientist.

The Republican Party's official organs have seen the amount of money at their disposal decline by hundreds of millions of dollars. Meanwhile, outside conservative advocacy groups mostly controlled by a small network of extremely wealthy donors have built sprawling national political institutions with large enough staffs and financial clout to rival a weakening GOP infrastructure.
