POLL: Obama Returns to Bay Area, Again

In his third trip in three months, the president continues to court the fundraising dollars in Silicon Valley.

If you missed on May 23rd to Redwood City's , cross your fingers—he may be in Redwood City next week.

KCBS reports that Obama might return to the Bay Area for another fundraising trip on July 23rd. During his last trip on June 6th, the president raised $2 million; later that week media outlets reported that Republican presidential candiate Mitt Romney out-fundraised Obama $76 million to $60 million in the month of May.

So who do Redwood City residents support?

According to the Federal Election Commission, as of July 4, approximately 644 donations from Redwood City residents had donated $167,447 to the Obama campaign in 2011 and 2012. This compares to 30 donations for Romney.

Can Obama continue to beat Romney in fundraising in Redwood City? TAKE OUR POLL!

I wonder how many have given nothing to either.

I know of one, me.

That makes two ;)

You forgot to mention that Romney raised over 100 Million in June!

I wonder how much is from interests outside the U.S. since there is no accountability with the super pack funds (that goes for any candidate in any race).

Doesn't really matter for Super PACs. They are not allowed to give money directly or indirectly to candidates. They maintain their own campaigns that support or counter the efforts of candidates. A foreign power would only donate if they thought it would give them some sort of benefit, and since the election is so close it would be against their interest to make any significant expenditure.

At least that is what we are lead to believe.

Every Super PAc is required by the election commission to show the check and the name of the organization or individual that gave it.
