The Center for Responsive Politics is a non-partisan, non-profit research group based in Washington, D.C. that tracks money in politics, and its effect on elections and public policy. The Center conducts computer-based research on campaign finance issues for the news media, academics, activists, and the public at large. The Center’s work is aimed at creating a more educated voter, an involved citizenry, and a more responsive government.”

“This thread sucks. Just as its originator. Can we get back to backpacking?”
“I hadn’t had a chance to look too much at your link Tilt, but NPR was talking about the Center for Responsive Politics the other day. They noticed that contrary to the popular notion that Republicans are owned by corporate America, the data showed that 7 of the top 10 largest donors favored Democrats over Republicans. Republicans tended to get their funds from smaller, individual donors.
I guess I have to agree with stratdewd that their site is hopelessly biased and the information can be dismissed outright. Its obviously funded by stinkin’ liberal types who would like to rid the Democratic party of the “new Democrats” that have cozied up with corporate America so.
If you think about it, there is a whole list of legislation and lack of enforcement of anti-trust laws that happened under Clinton that would have had people up in arms if a Republican was in office.”
“Sorry, I don't have time for your crap today.”
“you had time to write a response!”
“flesh-eater, did it occur to you that most of those donors are not corportate but union? That makes snse then, doesn't it. Labor has always been democrat.”
“Almost twice the money went to the Republican presidential candidate in the last cycle.
Each party has it's own constituant base. NRA tends to contribute solely to Republican candidates and its members tend to be one-issue voters.”
