In the first 3 quarters of 2011, the vast majority of Mitt Romney’s $32 million that he raised came from large donors according to a study by CreditSesame. Compare that to Obama (52%), Santorum (79%), Paul (52%), and Gingrich (57%), and it’s pretty easy to see where Romney’s allegiances would lie if he were nominated by the GOP and subsequently won the general election.
Percentages are one thing, but the consolidated Democratic focus on Obama gave him as much as all of the major candidates at that time combined. The Republican party is in trouble if this primary season goes on indefinitely as all of the 4 remaining GOP candidates have promised. Who will drop out first? How long will the GOP let Obama sit back and beat up on each other before he has to really spend any of his campaign money?
