Romney Boosted by Wall Street

Among financial-sector donors, Romney is out fundraising President Obama $37.1 million to $4.8 million. Many of the former Obama supporters in Wall Street have switched to Romney because "they feel that our country is in trouble -- that our economy is in trouble." Ken Griffin, founder of the Chicago-based hedge fund Citadel, shifted his generous donations from President Obama in 2008 to Gov. Romney this election year. Griffen told Politico:
"'It is critical that the next president appreciates that America’s prosperity is driven by the innovation and hard work of the American worker, whose valiant efforts have, in recent years, been undermined by the oppressive weight of government intervention.'"
