Sanders is the first candidate to announce he surpassed 1 million individual online contributions—a milestone he reached earlier in the campaign cycle than President Obama did in both 2008 and 2012. It took Obama until February to reach 1 million donations the first time around, and October the second, according to The Washington Post.
As with Obama, many of Sanders’s donations have been from people contributing small amounts. The campaign said the average donation over the last week was just less than $25. In the last quarter, the campaign said that the average donation was $34.
For her part, Clinton’s campaign said Wednesday that 93 percent of its donations since July were $100 or less. Her campaign expects to meet their goal of $100 million by the end of the year. Sanders, it seems, will be huffing and puffing in her ear the whole way there.
