Bloomfield Donates More to Obama in 2012 Election

 

Bloomfield residents overwhelmingly favored President Barack Obama with their wallets in the 2012 election. 

Residents contributed $62,304 to Obama’s re-election campaign. This was more than five times what Republican candidate Mitt Romney received -- $12,338. 

The average contribution for Obama was about $88, compared to nearly $182 for Romney.   

The map,  compiled by NJ Spotlight from an analysis of Federal Election Commission data, breaks down the number and amount of contributions by zip code. Each zip code is colored red, Republican, or blue, Democrat, depending on which party received the most in contributions.  Obama led New Jersey by $1.3 million more in donations than received by Romney.

Essex County is shown split between Republican (red) and Democrat (blue). Traditionally, western Essex leans Republican, while towns in the eastern part of the county lean Democratic.
