The Money Isn’t Following

Buzz Feed says that 88% of the people who gave $200 to the Obama campaign in 2008 have not given that much again this cycle. Indeed, a substantial number haven’t given at all this time around. Many of the 2008 contributors cited in the piece are disappointed with the President’s performance.

At the top of the post is a map showing the giving fallout rate by zip code. The darker the dot, the poorer this year’s fundraising. Some parts of the country are fully darkened in, but some states outlines are easy to spot. Florida. Virginia. Wisconsin. Illinois(!). A lack of enthusiasm for the President in any of these states would greatly help Mitt Romney in the fall.

Is it November yet?
