VDARE (BY PATRICK CLEBURNE) — Today The Wall Street Journal reported Hedge-Fund Money: $48.5 Million for Hillary Clinton, $19,000 for Donald Trump by John Carney and Anupreeta Das July 29 2016. This says
The top five contributors to pro-Clinton groups are employees or owners of private investment funds, according to federal data released last week and compiled by OpenSecrets.org, the center’s website. The data show seven financial firms alone have generated nearly $48.5 million for groups working on Mrs. Clinton’s behalf.
The total for Donald Trump: About $19,000.
The story notes that Trump, having self-financed his campaign for the nomination, has only recently displayed interest in financial help for the General Election. But more importantly it also notes:
In the 2008 campaign, hedge funds contributed just $14 million to Democratic candidates and groups…. to many on Wall Street, the Democrat in this election is the safer bet.
