More Mahwah Residents Gave Money to Obama Campaign

But, Romney supporters from Mahwah donated more money to their candidate of choice, report says

More Mahwah residents cast their vote for Mitt Romney in November’s presidential election, but more than double the number of people from Mahwah who donated money to the Romney campaign, donated to the Obama campaign.

According to an interactive map posted on NJSpotlight.com Friday, 403 Mahwah residents contributed to the Obama campaign from March 2011 through Nov. 2012. Only 198 donated funds to the Romney campaign during the same time period.

But, the amount donated by Romney supporters was much higher. Romney raised $80,033 from Mahwah contributors, whereas Obama only raised $40,332, the map reported.

How telling. You can see the class divide in the amount of donations. Pretty clear that (one can assume from the data that) the wealthier residents contributed to Romney while our president has the support of the middle class 2 to 1.

People like you are a sorry bunch and the ones that perpetuate this class divide into class warfare. You've turned success (and obviously your lack of) into a four lettered word, and based on a single, monetary metric, you assume only the wealthier of Mahwah's residents contributed to Romney, and they're not middle class. You're pathetic.
