Hillary Clinton has received more than eight times as much in campaign contributions from Hollywood than her Democratic competitor, Bernie Sanders, and nearly 20 times as much Tinseltown cash as the entire GOP field combined.
Reuters looked at campaign finance records through March 31 and found that out of the $9.97 million that Hollywood executives, actors and other employees have given to presidential campaigns and associated committees, $8.41 million has gone to Clinton’s campaign or to USA Priorities, the super PAC supporting her White House bid.
Sanders, whose progressive policies are seen as a closer match of Hollywood values than are Clinton’s, has received $1.04 million in Hollywood help.
Only $460,000 has been donated to the entire GOP field, which counted 17 candidates at its peak.
