Politico, Bankers back Biden despite gains under Trump: Bankers’ preference for the former vice president comes even as the Trump administration has delivered in a significant way for the banks:

Executives and employees at the nation’s biggest banks are giving a boost to former Vice President Joe Biden’s campaign for the White House, despite economic policies under President Donald Trump that produced record profits for the industry.

Contributions from individuals affiliated with the six largest lenders total $907,216 for Biden and $293,434 for Trump, according to a POLITICO review of campaign finance data. Biden has a significant fundraising advantage at every one of the banks — JPMorgan Chase, Bank of America, Citigroup, Wells Fargo, Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley.
