Number of Donations for 2020 Democrats
This first visualization looks at the total donations for each democratic candidate.
It's interesting to see the discrepancy between number of individual donors and
amount raised. For example, despite having significantly fewer donors, Buttigieg
manages to pass Warren and come near Sanders in total amount raised, indicating that
Buttigieg has a much higher average donation than those two. Similar stories appear
throughout the graph.
It's probably also important to note this data's age. For
example, since June 30, both Gabbard and Yang have crossed 130,000 unique donors.
This visualization has less clear value than the previous one. Still, it's
interesting to view which candidates are supported by the most billionaires. The
numbers might indicate which candidates have the best pitches behind closed doors,
as well as their potential approach to the wealthy once in office.
