Obama's $3 solicitations - the point?Submitted by tasmlab on Mon, 04/02/2012 - 09:48
I get constant solicitations to donate $3 to the Obama campaign. Why such a small sum? The cost of compliance and advertising alone must make this a very low margin affair.
It made me wonder if it is to just generate a public data point that he has lots of citizen donors and to draw attention away from his Goldman Sachs type of contributions.
At $3 a pop, he'd need every man, woman and child to chip in over three times apiece to make his $B war chest.
