With the election less than a year away, we are inundated with everything we can possibly need to know about each of the possibly presidential candidates. Whether it’s their past history, drug use, their stand on the war or anything else you can possibly think of, but there’s one top that doesn’t come up too often. How rich are these presidential hopeful’s really worth? Money Magazine recently did an article on the top candidates and how much richer than us they really are, and where they’re keeping their stash! From Mitt Romney’s $200+ Million net worth, all the way down to Obama’s $1.3 Million… we got ya covered!
|Republicans (millions)||Democrats (millions)|
|Mitt Romney – $202 – Full Review||Hilary Clinton – $34.9 – Full Review|
|Rudolph Giuliani – $52.2 – Full Review||Barrack Obama – $1.3 – Full Review|
|Fred Thompson – $8.1 – Full Review||John Edwards – $54.7 – Full Review|
|John McCain – $40.4 – Full Review|
I remember during the last election I saw something pretty crazy! The Republican party had an affiliate program running on CommissionJunction, which was paying 30% commissions on all party donations. What this meant was, anyone referred from an affiliate site, and donated say $100…$30 (30%) of that actually would have went to the “affiliate site”, then another transaction percentage to CJ for handling the transaction. What I’m getting at is that a good portion of your donations were actually going elsewhere too! I’ll be interested to see if this happens again this year. I think it’s quite shady to take commissions from any donations, even if they are political… but imagine what type of earnings you could see if you ran a political site with loyal candidate followers!
