Keep in mind also that a decade ago we developed a mechanism to increase the likelihood of small donations to Presidential candidates. We didn't change the formula regarding big donors (perhaps to some extent accelerated it), but we did increase the participation and money flow for those with less means. It also helped tip the balance for one candidate over the other in a Party's primary while being a more modest presence in the general election (given the number of other influences in the mix).
