Top Industry Campaign Donors

I was surprised to learn that Lawyers and Law Firms are the largest contributors to election campaigns, by industry. I wuold have thought it was telecommunications or energy companies.

Next on the list is Retirees. I know a woman in her 80s who lives in safety on her late husband's union pension and is vehemently anti-union. She gets all her information from Fox News and votes strictly right-wing. I wonder how much of her union money she will give to McCain.

Wall Street and the Real Estate industry are in third and fourth place, respectively.

Education (with college professors dominating the total amount) is ninth, and bringing-up the bottom of the top-ten list is Hollywood.
