This simple chart shows exactly how much Wall Street loves Hillary Clinton

It’s long been established that Hillary Clinton has close ties to Wall Street — as she would tell it, because 9/11 — but a recently released a chart from the non-partisan, non-profit Center for Responsive Politics clearly shows just how close those ties are.


Many might be surprised to learn that Clinton has more support among the big banks and investment firms than even Jeb Bush. Granted, as hedge funders do, they’re hedging their bets and spreading money around, spending far more on all the Republican candidates combined than they are on Clinton. But it does show you that Wall Street is not exactly worried about its prospects should she get elected.

Another chart shows the breakdown of big bank support for Clinton and Bush.


“The financial sector wants stability,” said Geoffrey Skelley, a political analyst at the University of Virginia’s Center for Politics. “Having a track record and being more predictable is what Clinton and Bush offer.”

Being there on 9/11 can’t hurt either.
