While it's interesting to see this presented by the amount of donations, women skewing Democrat is pretty standard, right?

yes, by about 8-12% though. Here, Obama has over twice as many female donors than the Romney campaign. In addition, male Romney donors exceed female Romney donors on about 3-1.

Good point aj3, I would definitely agree that Obama is winning the female vote by a substantial margin. Did you watch the GOP convention? If so, you will recall how hard they tried to make Romney appealing to the fairer sex. Guess it didn't work.

Hehe, and as we see such articles like "even (some) african-american people support Romney" (I'm looking at you, Bishop Jackson) we will now see "even (some) women support Romney"...
