    numerically, this means one out of every one hundred Americans has contributed to the re-election campaign so far? Has that EVER happened before??? Amazing. Absolutely amazing.

    •  Wow! (0+ / 0-)

      That's how it really breaks down? That truly is amazing. I don't know if anyone has pointed that out.

      But you just did. :)

      Think that should be enlarged upon and made into a diary?

      It certainly puts the "enthusiasm gap" meme to rest, doesn't it? :)

      Thank you so much for pointing this out, justanyjoe

      •  Donations to Obama campaign: 3,153,000 (0+ / 0-)

        Current population of the US: 314,200,000. Both numbers VERY slightly rounded. Actually slightly better than one out of a hundred :-)

        I'm looking for enough info (comparisons of fundraising numbers, etc) to make this a worthwhile diary. The fact alone is very worth it!
