Stop the Presses: Colleges Give Heavily to Democrats

It’s no shock to learn that employees of colleges and universities donate more heavily to Democrats than to Republicans. In the University of California system, 10 times as much money went to Democrats than to Republicans, according to reports to the Federal Election Commission through May 21. At Harvard, it was 7X Democratic, Northwestern 6X Democratic, and both Duke and the University of North Carolina system were 17X Democratic. Yale, apparently in the most desperate need of politically balanced staff, weighed in at 42X Democratic. Georgetown, a notable outlier among well-known universities, gave 50 percent more to Republicans that to Democrats. Source: Center for Responsive Politics.
