That doesn't mean Obama isn't racking up big donations, however. Obama has received 151 donations over $1,000, while Romney has received 37 donations over $1,000.
Marin is also deep Obama country, as the president has tallied more than $1.2 million in donations from Marin residents to date, far outpacing the $266,00 in donations to Romney from Marin to date. Mill Valley was the biggest donor to Obama in Marin, while Romney drew the most donations from San Rafael at more than $103,000.
