    I believe the Koch Bros. were able to influence the outpouring of 170 million to Willard..

    Looks like the donations distribution as a whole. Obama has it more spread out over a much larger base than Romney. It could hurt Romney in the final stretch in battleground states if he can't muster-up the ground troops- unless of course, that doesn't matter anymore. I think it will in Ohio. Mitt won't be able to get Sheldon to make phone calls or stand on an intersection in Dayton holding a sign.

    2 million or the 3.1 million supporters of Obama have given $25 or less in aggregate, the campaign reports. More than 1.4 million have given more than once this election cycle.

    Through June, the Obama campaign raised 39 percent of its total funds from donors who gave $200 or less in aggregate, according to the an analysis of Federal Election Commission data by the nonpartisan Campaign Finance Institute. Romney raised 15 percent of his funds from the same class of small-dollar donors.
