Interesting on the Poll, but so is the campaign donations

I took a look at the fec.gov site for my state and here is what I found:

Most of the other candidates donors have
maxed out their donation possibilites.

For instance below for Mitt Romney:

ALBRECHT, ANNE MRS. SAINT LOUIS MO 63124
02/06/2007 $2100
ALBRECHT, CRAIG R MR. ST. LOUIS MO 63130
05/14/2007 $250
ALBRECHT, CRAIG R MR. ST. LOUIS MO 63130
05/16/2007 $96
ALBRECHT, DOUGLAS MR. SAINT LOUIS MO 63141
02/06/2007 $2100
ALBRECHT, EDWARD D MR. ST. LOUIS MO 63130
05/15/2007 $250

This money is all from the same family and they are
maxed out for the rest of the primary campaign, unless
they give money to other people to donate.

While if you take a look at Ron Paul's
most of them are small donors and still can give.
See below:

I also noticed that Ron Paul received most of his
money during June, while most of the other campaigns
were in April or early May and then they sputtered
out.

This is very interesting and shows momentum in fund
raising for Paul.

Whats also interesting is that some of the people that
give money to Gulianni also give to Romney.

Check out below - same people but for Gulianni

ALBRECHT, ANNE MRS. SAINT LOUIS MO 63124
06/12/2007 $2300
ALBRECHT, CRAIG R MR. ST. LOUIS MO 63130
06/12/2007 $2300
ALBRECHT, DOUGLAS A MR. SAINT LOUIS MO 63124
06/12/2007 $2300
ALBRECHT, EDWARD D MR. ST. LOUIS MO 63130
06/06/2007 $2300

So who really does have the support? Ron Paul - it
took him alot more people to get 3.2 million at $40
dollars a donation than Romney or Guiliani getting
thiers from maxed out contributors that are actually
getting money from lots of the same people.

This is just in Missouri, but I expect this will
repeat itself nationwide.
