The Campaign Contributor Class Is Small

What percentage of people make significant campaign contributions to federal elections?

About 1% of Americans adults contribute more than $200 to all federal candidates combined in a two year election cycle, and about than 0.1% of American adults make big contributions of $2,700 or more to all federal candidates combined per two year election cycle (via Open Secrets).

Hum... I know four people that make significant campaign contributions. One is liberal, professional and single. The other three are conservative, real-estate, and married with kids. All four are financially secure. So the common factor is that they have money to throw around.

Money to throw around.
We are retired and have sufficient funds.
This year, we have been making blue political contributions. Because we can. Because the stock market keeps going up.
