As Goes Wall Street

For John, BLUFI wonder what Senator Warren thinks of this?  Nothing to see here; just move along.

The full headline is "Wall Street for Hillary?:  Clinton has $48.5M in hedge fund backing, compared to Trump".

What is it with The Donald, that Wall Street is pulling against him?  Do they see him, secretly, as the Second Coming of Senator E Warren?

Hedge fund owners and employees have so far this election cycle contributed nearly $48.5 million for Hillary Clinton, compared to about $19,000 for Donald Trump, an indication that Wall Street is clearly backing the Democratic presidential nominee.

The total amount of such campaign contributions in 2016 is $122.7 million, twice as much as in the 2012 election cycle, according to a recent federal report analyzed by the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics.

With the Democratic and Republican parties’ conventions over Thursday and the general election officially just a few days old, it’s no surprise that pro-Clinton groups have received more hedge fund money.

If you don't like it, blame Fox News. Hat tip to the InstaPundit.
