In the 2012 campaign cycle, Brookline residents have made 3,296 contributions to the presidential campaigns of Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, the Democratic and Republican Party nominees. About 86 percent of the donations made in Woburn have gone to President Obama.
Of those, 130 went to the Mitt Romney Campaign, and the rest--3,166 all told--went to the incumbent, Pres. Obama.
Statewide, a total of $23,401,154 has been donated to presidential candidates by Massachusetts residents. Of that, $14,534,279 has gone to Obama and $7,896,545 has gone to Romney. The rest has gone to other candidates, primarily Ron Paul ($369,583) and others who ran against Romney in the Republican primary.
Patch has created an interactive database so you can see how much your neighbors are donating to the presidential campaign—and to which candidate they’re writing their checks. We’ve included communities across Massachusetts, so if you want to see what the campaign contributions in nearby towns are like, go right ahead.
The information in the database was downloaded from the Federal Election Commission’s website. The data is based on quarterly reports, and is current through July. The data will be updated in mid-October.
