Who do Bush Supporters Support?

An interesting analysis in Business Week tells us that in Bush's 2004 campaign, he enlisted nearly 1000 executives as financial supporters for his campaign. He classified them as Pioneers, those who raised or donated at least $100,000, and Rangers, those hitting at least the $200,000 mark. Of his Pioneers and Rangers, two-thirds are still sitting on the sidelines waiting to decide who to throw their money to. Of the one-third that have contributed, here is the breakdown of the number of Pioneers and Rangers supporting each candidate:

Romney—109
McCain—103
Giuliani—68
Huckabee—8
Hunter—2
Brownback—2
Tancredo—2
Thompson—2
Gilmore—1
Paul—0

25 have contributed to Democrats including Clinton, Obama and Richardson

Very interesting -- I am very surprised at the numbers moving to Romney. I also would have expected more in the Huckabee camp.
