Democrats, as the party who’s controlled Congress these last few years, have received a larger share of Wall Street Firm donations. Democrats however, have not been afraid to stand up to Wall Street interests to do what's best for the greater good of the nation. They have pursued and now passed financial reform legislation to add regulations and oversight to prevent another economic collapse like the one back in 2008. As a result, Wall Street has pulled the plug on their donations to Democrats ans shifted their money toward the GOP.

This would explain why Republicans, who have been courting Wall Street money, have done nothing but filibuster attempts to regulate Wall Street. The GOP has clearly sided with Wall Street instead of Main Street and that decision will be reflected this fall by the Main Street voters come November!
