    OK but remember The party of the rich as been said to be the republican party. In 2008 obama set a all time record. So if the poor support the democrats how did obama get all that money?

    Micro-transactions. It's the same reason a "free" game like FarmVille can be billion dollar business.

    But record setting by obama does not add up since most supporters of obama are supposedly poor in tough economical times are not going to waste their money for political purposes.

    It's exactly what I "hear". If you don't "hear" that, perhaps you aren't listening close enough.

    Obama set the record by receiving the more money for his campaign than anyone else before.
