Obama has outraised Romney in the Hamptons by 38.6%

You’ll hear plenty this week about Mitt Romney raising money in the Hamptons, and so I thought it was worth putting things in perspective. According to data from the Center for Responsive Politics, Romney has reported $119,550 from the 13 zip codes that count as The Hamptons according to Wikipedia. Obama has raised $165,867.

Campaigns' fundraising from the Hamptons

Sagaponack and Sag Harbor really don’t like Romney.

This data doesn’t include RNC, DNC, or SuperPAC data. It also obviously doesn’t include Romney’s July fundraiser in the Hamptons. It’s up-to-date as of May 31, I believe.

UPDATE: Sagaponack (11962) was named by Business Week “The most expensive small town in America.” The median home there sells for $4.4 million. That means that half the homes there are worth more. Sagaponack is the orange portion of the bars above. It favored Obama $12,700 to $0.
