Though three times as many Beachwood residents have given to President Barack Obama’s 2012 election campaign than to Mitt Romney, the Democratic incumbent’s donors have given only 54 percent as much money as his Republican challenger.
Patch has created an interactive database so you can see how much your neighbors are donating to the presidential campaign—and to which candidate they’re writing their checks. We’ve included communities across Ohio, so if you want to see what the campaign contributions in Lyndhurst or Pepper Pike, go right ahead.
Sixty Beachwood residents have given about $36,900 to the incumbent. Mitt Romney has raised about $22,600 from his 20 Beachwood contributors.
Beachwood’s Obama contributors have given an average of $614, while those supporting Romney have averaged $1,131.
Three Beachwood residents have given Obama at least one $2,500 donation and seven have given at least one $1,000 donation.
Romney has collected nine $2,500 donations from five donors and two more donors have given $1,000.
The information in the database was downloaded from the Federal Election Commission’s website. The data is based on quarterly reports, and is current through July. The data will be updated in mid-October.
