I had made donations to elections personally and and also made election donations on account of my firm. Are these expenses tax deductible in USA? Is there any difference between above said personal expense and business expense?

According to the IRS, any type of elections donation or contribution is not tax deductible. This includes contributing to a Political candidate, a campaign fund or even a newsletter. In your case, this would also include the money you donate through your job. If you decide to attend a political dinner, you can't deduct this from your taxes either.
