Women Donated Almost Half of Obama Campaign Cash

In addition to their votes, women were much more likely to give money to President Barack Obama than Mitt Romney, reports Politico. Women made up 44 percent ($125 million) of Obama’s donations (at least the ones greater than $200, which can be tracked) and only 28 percent ($97.5 million) of Romney’s. Obama also did much better with small-dollar donors, lawyers, professors, and tech-industry employees. Romney cleaned up with men, Wall Street, and those affiliated with the insurance, real-estate, coal, oil, and gas industries. But you probably could have guessed that.
