METHODOLOGY: These figures are based on PAC and individual contributions of more than $200 to federal candidates and parties, and on donations from individuals, PACs and other organizations (including corporate and union treasuries) giving to outside interest groups that report to the Federal Election Commission. Columns do not always add up to 100% due to third party candidates and outside spending groups not identified as either liberal or conservative.
