Mitt Romney's financial juggernaut has never had the kind of small dollar, online support that's a good measure of activist support.
Until Paul Ryan, that is.
Mitt Romney's campaign has raised $10 million since announcing Rep. Paul Ryan as Romney's running mate.
The Republican's presidential campaign announced the cash surge on Friday as part of a memo that highlighted a boost in polls it said Romney had gained by picking Ryan, a Wisconsin Republican.
The memo from Matt Rhoades, Romney's campaign manager, said 68 percent of donations this week were from new donors, and that the average donation was $81.
The key point is that that $10 million is online.
Here's another interesting number, via The Hill's Alicia Cohn -- the Romney campaign has signed up over 45,000 new volunteers since picking Ryan.
