Obama Has Raised Five Times More Money Than Romney in Larkspur and Corte Madera

Use Patch's database to find out how much your neighbors have given to the candidates.

Larkspur and Corte Madera voters have given more than five times the amount of money to President Barack Obama than Republican nominee Mitt Romney, according to data from Federal Elections Commission.

These most recent numbers—which run from April 1, 2011 through August 30, 2012—show Obama supporters in Larkspur have given nearly $68,500, while Romney supporters have donated $12,300. In Corte Madera, Obama received nearly $48,000 in donations and Romney tallied more than $11,500.

And while Twin Cities voters have given significantly more money to the Obama campaign, it has been in smaller and more frequent increments. The records show that Obama received 296 donations at an average of $231 in Larkspur, while Romney received 15 donations at an average of $820. 

In Corte Madera, Obama received 402 donations at an average of $119, while Romney received 20 donations at an average of $578. 

That doesn't mean Obama isn't racking up big donations, however. Obama has received 29 donations over $1,000, while Romney has received 9 donations over $1,000.

Marin is also deep Obama country, as the president has tallied more than $1.2 million in donations from Marin residents to date, far outpacing the $266,00 in donations to Romney from Marin to date. Mill Valley was the biggest donor to Obama in Marin at more than $508,000, while Romney drew the most donations from San Rafael at more than $103,000.

Romney is a liar! If he steals this election as bush did, there will be a revolution.

Here's a real howler: Marin voters sporting Obama stickers on their car bumpers! The only thing more surprising than his losing around here would be the state sliding into the Pacific. And such event might be for the best if the dems sweep the 2012 elections. Fortunately neither is gonna happen.
