The data compiled for USA Today shows the president attended 191 fundraisers for himself and others through March 6 in order to stockpile money for his re-election campaign.
By comparison, Obama's predecessor George W. Bush had headlined 134 fundraisers at this point in his first term.
Ronald Reagan attended 75 fundraisers by March 6 of his fourth year in office while Jimmy Carter had headlined only 49.
Obama set fundraising records as a candidate four years ago raising a record $745 million.
This time around his campaign officials are now saying he probably won't exceed his 2008 record.
