90% of Hollywood Political Donations Are Going to Clinton

1 minute read

These days, you might mistake Hillary Clinton for a filmmaker raising funds for her first big movie. The 2016 hopeful has plenty of friends in Hollywood, and it turns out that 9 out of 10 dollars donated by those in the film industry to political campaigns are going to Clinton.

According to a report by the L.A. Times, Hollywood donors have contributed $5.5 million to campaigns so far, $5 million of which has gone to Clinton as of Sept. 30. Her biggest showbiz donors making large contributions to her Super PAC include Steven Spielberg, Jeffrey Katzenberg and Haim Saban in the $1 million range and J.J. Abrams in the $500,000 range. Individual donors on a much smaller scale include everyone from Ben Affleck to Barbra Streisand.

Jeb Bush comes in second with about $165,000 from Hollywood, and Bernie Sanders rounds out the top three with $134,000—indies compared to Clinton’s blockbuster fundraising efforts in Hollywood.
