News Of The Weird - The Really, Really Weird

I get a number of news and press releases every day. Sometimes they are gun or law related, sometimes not. With this being a presidential election year I've been getting more and more that are about the race for the White House. These usually involve a poll stating that this candidate or that candidate is leading his or her opponents.

The one I'm reproducing below is about campaign finance. It shows Bernie Sanders leading in contributions among a certain demographic. That demographics is called "sugar daddies" or "sugar mommas". These are men and women who are willing to support attractive young men and women financially in exchange for "companionship". I'll just leave it at that.

Things can get bitter on the campaign trail, but some presidential candidates are sweetening their chances with donations from Sugar Daddies.

Today, the world’s largest Sugar Daddy dating site,, is releasing results from a recent poll asking Sugar Daddies whether they donate to presidential campaigns, and which candidates receive their funding.

Rank - Candidate - Number of Sugar Daddy donors
Bernie Sanders - 345
Donald Trump - 291
Hillary Clinton - 174
Ted Cruz - 100
Marco Rubio - 50

According to the data, Bernie Sanders is the favorite among Sugar Daddies, with a reported 345 contributing to his canvass. Trump has the second most Sugar supporters, with a reported 291 Sugar Daddies contributing to Donald’s campaign.

“Plenty of Sugar Daddies are considered ‘One-Percenters,’ making Sanders an unexpected choice,” says Brandon Wade, Founder and CEO of

Additional data from the same poll shows 83 percent of Sugar Daddies provided funds to at least one presidential campaign, while 58 percent are repeat donors.

In the past, Sugar Daddies helped choose the next president by donating to Obama, Bill Clinton, and even George W. Bush," says Wade about data from the study in regards to past presidential campaigns. "However, it seems that may not be the case for this election."

  1. Maybe sugar daddies donate to Bernie because they're in the same demographic group? They identify with him?
