How Liberal Are Academics? Follow the Money

Princeton loves Democrats.

By SHARE

We all know that those steeped in academia tend to be liberal, but if you needed more proof: All of the Princeton University faculty members who have given money to presidential campaigns have donated to Democrats, the Daily Princetonian reports. Most of the money has gone to Sen. Barack Obama, with Sen. Hillary Clinton coming in second, and only two employees (a grad student and public safety officer) have given to a Republican (Ron Paul). Princeton's percentages also outpace Democratic giving at both Harvard and Georgetown.
