After hauling in an epic $32 million in contributions in January, Barack Obama is expecting a near record-busting $30 million in donations this month. Even more striking, the candidate for change seems to raise most of his money in just that—change. Half of January's yield came in online contributions of $200 or less, many as little as $5 to $10, Politico reports.
Obama has already raised $2.2 million in a 24-hour period yesterday. Clinton, by contrast, raised $14 million last month, mostly in donations of the $2,300 maximum, and yesterday loaned her campaign $5 million. "Obama’s financial superiority is straining the Clinton campaign at this point," one analyst said.
