Interesting Factoids On 2012 Election

Politico notes that, with the final numbers in, both Team Obama and Team Romney raised more than $1 billion –  “Obama: $1.123 billion, Romney: $1.019 billion. That’s the final fundraising tally in the most expensive presidential election ever, according to reports filed Thursday with the FEC by the campaigns and party committees.” DEMOCRATS HAVE A TECHNOLOGY EDGE Writes Hotline’s Reid Wilson, “The technophiles who built a start-up-like atmosphere of 40 or so programmers and data crunchers are achieving something approaching mythical status in postelection media coverage. In less than two years, they created groundbreaking voter-identification tools, turnout models, and a get-out-the-vote system that helped squeeze every last ballot out of the Democratic coalition.”
