Davis Voters Gave About Four Times More Money to Obama than to Romney

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

Davis voters have given about four times more money to President Barack Obama than to Republican nominee Mitt Romney, according to data from the Federal Elections Commission.

These most recent numbers—which run from April 1, 2011 through July 31, 2012—show Obama supporters in Davis have given approximately $286,000, while Romney supporters have given about $74,000.

Obama received 58 donations of more than $1,000 from Davisites, while Romney received 16 contributions of that size.

The contribution data mirrors the large disparity in voter registration among Davisites: Nearly 21,000 of Davis's 38,415 voters are registered Democrats, according to the latest statistics from the Yolo County Elections Office, while fewer than 6,000 are registered Republicans. (The remainder, a sizeable 11,000 or so, are minor-party supporters or registered decline-to-state.)

If you’d like to find out who are some of the top local donors so far—or, if you’d like to see how the numbers break down in other parts of the state, you can use Patch's interactive database above.

The information in the database was downloaded from the FEC’s website. The data is based on quarterly reports, and is current through July. The data will be updated in mid-October, and Patch will keep you posted with the new numbers as soon as they’re available.

Those aren't "Obama stickers," they're ads. And they're available to Romney, too. Thanks for sharing.

I think it's unfortunate that this is legal. Some people use this information to boycott businesses.
