Obama Raises $68 Million in Three Months

In what comes as very important news, Barack Obama’s campaign team and the Democratic National Committee have raised $68 Million over the last quarter of 2011.

The President’s campaign manager Jim Messina said, 98% of the donations were individual contributions of $250 or less, which means a great deal to the campaign. The other figure to note is that the 200,000 of the people were first time donors. The more number of people donating smaller denominations represents their support for the Democratic Party and Obama. If we dissect this and look carefully, it points to the growing popularity of Obama at grass-root levels. The figure was strategically revealed close on the heels of Mitt Romney announcing that his campaign team had raised $24m in the same period. Mitt Romney is the leading Republican Candidate set to take on Obama in the Presidential polls.
