Obama intends to paint Mitt Romney as the Wall Street candidate, and when you look at a chart of Romney’s campaign donors you can see how that plan might work.
Romney received over $560 thousand from Goldman Sachs for his 2012 campaign. Citigroup contributed $285 thousand to the campaign.
As I reported in an earlier article Goldman Sachs contributed $1,013,091.00 to Obama’s 2008 campaign, and Citigroup contributed $736,771.00.
That’s almost twice as much as they contributed to Romney this year. The thing is, Goldman gave Obama
only $80,224.00 this year.
So it may be easy to make Romney look like a Wall Street Candidate. That is until you look at how much Obama and the Democratic National Committee have collected from Wall Street so far this year, $15.6 million to Romney’s $7.5 million.
President Obama has raised and spent money for his re-election through the DNC (Democratic National Committee) allowing him to collect bigger checks from donors in the financial industry.
Still almost half $85,336,863 (45%) of Obama’s campaign money is coming from Small Individual Contributions.
While only $9,145,126 (11%) of Romney’s campaign finances come from Small Individual Contributions.
Kind of looks like Obama has the support of Wall Street and the small individual contributor, while Romney’s supporters aren’t showing much.
If we really want Mitt Romney to win this election we had better get busy.
You already know that Obama won the 2008 election with the help of Wall Street support. But the movement that got him elected was the support of young voters and small donors, that’s happening again.
So what if Romney is a Wall Street Candidate? We need someone who understands the Economy and how it works. He can also be the Main Street Candidate…
But that may not happen unless Main Street and the Small Individual Supporters get involved and make it happen. That’s not as hard to do as you might think. You can make a difference, we all can.
Since there are over 50 million registered republican voters, if just half of us Donate as little as $5.00 each, then we can make a big difference ($125. million difference).
…………………… But, what may be more important than the money is the tangible show of support.
So spread the word, tell your friends that we need to get busy if we want a real change…
Forward this to your contact list, help them understand why this is important.
What do you think we should do? Leave a comment, maybe you have a good idea.
