Individual donors to Democratic candidates for the party\u0026#039;s 2020 presidential nomination overwhelmingly gave to Sen. Bernie Sanders, according to analyses released Friday.\u0026nbsp;The New York Times, in a map produced by the paper\u0026#039;s reporters, found that Sanders, an Independent from Vermont, dominates most of the country as the primary or secondary recipient of nearly all donations from Americans in all states—though his support is strongest in New England, New York, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, the eastern Great Plains, and the West.\u0022The movement is so strong that NYT has to create a separate map that excludes @BernieSanders from it,\u0022 tweeted Sanders campaign manager Faiz Shakir.The movement is so strong that NYT has to create a separate map that excludes @BernieSanders from it.https://t.co/59pjjZjSsl— Faiz (@fshakir) August 2, 2019The\u0026nbsp;L.A. Times\u0026nbsp;went into further detail in a\u0026nbsp;piece\u0026nbsp;which allows\u0026nbsp;readers to zero in on their zip codes for hard numbers.\u0026nbsp;The Wall Street Journal showed who had the most small dollar donations across the country (unsurprisingly, the majority of the country went to Sanders in that regard).And this, from @latimes https://t.co/jDGKM29yIy— Carrie Levine (@levinecarrie) August 2, 2019And a study from\u0026nbsp;The Center for Public Integrity\u0026nbsp;and\u0026nbsp;FiveThirtyEight\u0026nbsp;demonstrated that the senator is the recipient of donations from one out of every three Democrats donating to primary candidates, irrespective of how many other candidates they\u0026#039;re donating to.The 2020 Democratic field is inspiring donors to spread the wealth - 1 in 5 have contributed to more than one candidate. 1 in 3 have given to @BernieSandershttps://t.co/u6PJN1I3oM— OpenSecrets.org (@OpenSecretsDC) August 2, 2019The mappable data from the\u0026nbsp;Times, said independent researcher Kristin Johnson, whose work on localized donations helped predict the upset win of Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.) in her 2018 primary against then-incumbent Mike Capuano, \u0022contradicts both the mainstream narrative and some national polling data that suggest that only a centrist Democrat could succeed in this political environment.\u0022\u0022Sanders clearly has an advantage from the supporter database and name recognition he amassed during his 2016 presidential campaign,\u0022 added Johnson.\u0026nbsp;Progressives immediately pounced on the\u0026nbsp;Times\u0026nbsp;report as an indication of the strength of Sanders\u0026#039; support.\u0022Total number of donors would seem to me to be the most relevant (and least classist) way of gauging enthusiasm, rather than the cash totals\u0026nbsp;CNN\u0026nbsp;et al gush over every quarter,\u0022\u0026nbsp;said\u0026nbsp;journalist Adam Johnson.Sanders\u0026#039; donor advantage was so overwhelming in the\u0026nbsp;Times\u0026nbsp;data that the paper \u0022had to make two maps—one excluding\u0026nbsp;Bernie Sanders—because Bernie had too many donors to show other candidates donation patterns,\u0022 as Greenpeace International\u0026#039;s Matt Browner Hamlin pointed out on Twitter.\u0026nbsp;LOL the Times had to make two maps - one excluding @BernieSanders - because Bernie had too many donors to show other candidates donation patterns. https://t.co/KKHwAoxA6d pic.twitter.com/iJg52rTBub— Matt Browner Hamlin (@mattkbh) August 2, 2019The breadth of Sanders\u0026#039; appeal, especially through the middle of the country, spurred the senator\u0026#039;s Iowa communications director to challenge the conventional wisdom that \u0022the Midwest doesn\u0026#039;t want or support progressive policies.\u0022CC\u0026#039;ing everyone saying that the midwest doesn\u0026#039;t want or support progressive policies. #iacaucus #Bernie2020 https://t.co/VLqtLfqsV4— Roger Ouellette (@Rouell3) August 2, 2019The report also showed strength for Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) across the country, though not as robust as that for Sanders.\u0026nbsp;Of other Democrats, South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg, a relative political unknown before this year\u0026#039;s breakout presidential run, former Vice President Joe Biden, and Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) all dominated the country\u0026#039;s wealthier hotspots. Former Rep. Beto O\u0026#039;Rourke dominated Texas and Sen. Amy Klobuchar her native Minnesota.\u0026nbsp;Sanders\u0026#039; strength may be even greater than the maps show, however, as the\u0026nbsp;Times admitted that \u0022information about donors giving $200 or less directly to a campaign is not available.\u0022The senator is raking it in from a plurality of Democrats contributing to campaigns, according to a study by\u0026nbsp;The Center for Public Integrity\u0026nbsp;and\u0026nbsp;FiveThirtyEight:\u0026nbsp;Nearly one out of every three donors who have given to any presidential campaign have donated to Sen. Bernie Sanders, a Vermont Democrat who has by far the largest number of donors of any of the Democratic candidates. (That doesn\u0026#039;t mean they gave exclusively to Sanders — many people have given money to multiple Democratic candidates.)\u0026nbsp;The study also found that \u0022Democrats are far from wearing their donors out\u0022 and have more to give.\u0026nbsp;\u0022At least 2.4 million people have together pumped about $209 million into the campaigns of major Democratic presidential contenders during the first half of 2019,\u0022 the report said.
