Obama could hit $60-70 million in February

As of Feb 21, Obama had 582,525 donors in 2008, that included 256,000 in January and approx 327,000 in February. Now Obama's number of public donors in 2008 stands at a whopping 909,525 for 2008, meaning an amazing 650,000+ donors for February alone. If he keeps the avg contribution of $140, that multiplied by 650,000 is a STAGGERING $91,000,000. Now, clearly the Jan avg contribution has gone down quite a bit. I don't have anything to base that on other than me trying to be a bit conservative, but I am guessing that the avg may be down to $90-$110 per donor, which would put him in the $58.5 million-$71.5 million range. WOW!!!

Also, here is a SUSA poll of who debate watchers thought won Tuesday's debate. Obama had a slight edge. http://www.surveyusa.com/client/PollReportPopup.aspx?g=1249a1e2-9017-44e7-8276-0f29cacafd27&q=46090
