Recent figures show that for every dollar President Barack Obama's supporters spend, Republican candidate Mitt Romney's lay down eight.

Romney raised more than $100m in June, a new record for his conservative party.

Obama's Democrats hoped to raise more than $1bn this election, but their Republican rivals could top even that.
