Approximately 1,600 donors to Democratic presidential candidates donated more than $200 to more than one candidate, according to a BuzzFeed analysis.

The analysis also found a large overlap between Buttigieg’s donors and those of former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D), as well as between Sens. Bernie SandersBernie SandersBullock: I would not have endorsed health care for undocumented immigrants on debate stage Harris faces pressure to define policy proposals Biden campaign rips 'Medicare for All,' calls on Dems to protect Affordable Care Act MORE (I-Vt.) and Elizabeth WarrenElizabeth Ann WarrenHarris faces pressure to define policy proposals Harris voices support for Puerto Rico protesters: 'I stand with them' Democrats slam Puerto Rico governor over 'shameful' comments, back protesters MORE (D-Mass.)

Warren and Sanders have staked out similar territory on the left flank of the 2020 candidates, with both endorsing progressive causes like "Medicare for All."

Sanders had the largest number of disclosed donors of the candidates in the first quarter, of which only 300 donated to another candidate, according to BuzzFeed’s analysis. Booker only reported about a third as many donors, but also had about 300 who donated elsewhere, according to BuzzFeed.

The analysis does not include donors who contributed $200 or less, which campaigns are not required to report, and did not include former Vice President Joe BidenJoe BidenHarris faces pressure to define policy proposals Biden campaign rips 'Medicare for All,' calls on Dems to protect Affordable Care Act Harris voices support for Puerto Rico protesters: 'I stand with them' MORE, who has led most polls of the field but has not yet formally declared his candidacy and thus has not officially raised any campaign cash, according to BuzzFeed.

Sanders currently leads fundraising among Democratic candidates, having raised $18.2 million, followed by Harris with $12 million. Eighty-four percent of Sanders’s total was from donors giving under $200.

Buttigieg's campaign declined to comment. Other candidates' campaigns did not immediately respond to a request for comment from The Hill.
