The Political 1% of the 1%: Meet the Gatekeepers of U.S. Elections
All this week, Sunlight is rolling out a new analysis on an elite group of 31,385 political donors. This group represents .01% of the U.S. population — a group of individuals so small, it can’t even fill a football stadium. Yet last election, they accounted for more than 28% of the total funds in the 2012 election. 
Stay tuned all week as we roll out more graphics and visuals accompanying the series here on our tumblr.
