How is it that Hillary and Obama etc. have so few regular income people donating yet still have all these millions of dollars? I know there are campaign finance laws that make this possible but I don't understand how it works. Are there no limits on corporate donations or something?

No, they use professional fundraising 'bundlers' so like lets say the president of some big bank.. he gets 20 of the other executives to donate and together they raise $46,000...

Or he can just give them the money so they can 'donate' thats why the 2300 limit really doesnt do much to level the playing field.. all the other candidates (other than Ron Paul) have big banks and big govt contractor employees donating for the most part
