In addition to their votes, women were much more likely to give money to President Barack Obama than Mitt Romney, reports Politico. Women made up 44 percent ($125 million) of Obama's donations (at least the ones greater than $200, which can be tracked) and only 28 percent ($97.5 million) of Romney’s. Obama also did much better with small-dollar donors, lawyers, professors, and tech-industry employees. Romney cleaned up with men, Wall Street, and those affiliated with the insurance, real-estate, coal, oil, and gas industries. But you probably could have guessed that.
