OpenSecrets.org data shows that historically women give far less money to political candidates than men do -- so far this election cycle, about 70 percent of the donors are men -- but Obama bucks that trend. Overall, about 44.5 percent of his donors are female, and about 30.7 percent of Romney's donors are women.But anyone who thinks the War on Women stuff isn't having an effect, check this out:
An analysis of each campaign's donations on a month-by-month basis shows that, as Obama accused the GOP of waging a "war on women," his fundraising dollars from women have stayed steady and Romney's have declined.Of course, Obama hasn't accused the GOP of waging a war on women, it's pretty much everyone else except for Obama. But aside from that small error, the point still stands—as women become more aware of the GOP's anti-women agenda, the less likely they are to open up their wallets to Romney.
