    Anyone care to venture a guess as to how many Wall Street Traders are Registered Democrats as compared to Registered Republicans?

    You might be surprised to know that more are Democrats. Or at least say they are. Makes sense when you consider the fact that Wall Street has made more in 3 years under Obama than in 8 under Bush. Profit wise.

    I'd like to see the precise numbers from the source, but it's not too surprising to me. It's certainly something Democrats don't want to publicize right now.

    However, while Wall Street people seem to lean towards a liberal ideology personally, Wall Street money seems to point towards Republicans pretty heavily now: Wall Street-Related Political Contributions Shift Toward Republicans - OpenSecrets Blog | OpenSecrets. It's not too surprising: during the Obama administration the Democrats have tried to regulate them and Republicans have tried to cut their taxes.
