Election 2012

3.1 Million Donors And Counting

Astonishing news -- more than 3.1 million people have now donated to the Obama campaign.

President Obama has amassed a donor base of 3.1 million Americans in his bid for a second term, surpassing his total from four years ago, Obama campaign officials announced today.

An infographic circulated by the campaign on Twitter shows Obama drawing significant support from small-dollar and repeat donors.

Two million supporters have given $25 or less in aggregate, the campaign reports. More than 1.4 million have given more than once this election cycle.

Underscoring the president’s support among women, the campaign said three women donated for every two men.

For comparison's sake, 3 million donated to the campaign in 2008, and today is only September 3rd. I personally donated a small amount on Friday.

We can't match the fundraising power of Republican billionaires, but we can keep them within an arm's length. And unfortunately for the Republicans, no amount of money can save you from having one of the worst candidates in recent history. It can only keep him in the game. That and a side of racism.

You can find the aforementioned info-graphic here. It's ginormous.

    “I personally donated a small amount on Friday.”

    Good! I donate a small amount automatically monthly.

    I worry about the money being forked over by Republican billionaires, but there’s nothing I can do about that. Donating something makes me feel like I’m at least trying to help.
