ActBlue Q3 Stats Week: Thursday

Yesterday we looked at the top candidates on ActBlue for the third quarter.  Today we’ll look at our ActBlue fundraising pages, where any individual, organization or campaign can support the candidates and causes of their choice.

Before we look at the individual pages here are some big picture

And now, the Top 10 lists of ActBlue fundraising pages by number of

As you can see, a mix of different approaches are represented on these lists. Some are dedicated pages for particular candidates, like Dan Seals or Mark Warner, who use ActBlue for their online campaign contribution. Others are being used by current officeholders to raise on behalf of their colleagues (and challengers), such as the effort by 12 Senators for for Sen. Tim Johnson.  And still others, like the various netroots pages, represent the collective voice of online communities in their efforts to support a wide range of candidates.
