    Have you every donated to a political campaign?

    Have you ever donated to a politicl campaign? They say money is the mother's milk of politics. Some of us don't like influence of lobbyist, corporate or union financial influence over our political system but do we as private citizens step up to the plate and give?

    I've never given to a campaign. I have supported groups with PAC divisions though.

    Yes. I donated to GWB his first time around. To Obama in 2008. To Jill Stein this time around.

    I have donated my time and efforts. I would rather have done that than give a few bucks.

    Re: Have you every donated to a political campaign?

    Yes, I've donated to many campaigns, mainly on the local level. I have given to national campaigns (though not nearly as much) and I've honestly regretted since then because now I'm on a ton of different mailings lists and I get pleas for money pretty much every single day.

    Yes, I have donated to political campaigns for certain issues as well as candidates, but never at a level above the state. National campaigns just don't excite me that much.

    I missed the mutiple choice. I've checked the box, volunteered, and given money for several candidates.

    I've not only donated to campaigns but I'm currently working for my current State Senator's campaign. In fact, if you have never donated to a campaign before but would like to get started I'm accepting checks!

    I've volunteered to help a campaign when I was a teenager but I've never donated money.
