Many people believe that the most politically liberal profession in America is that of a college professor. Political contributions indicate that belief may be true.
“The outcome of the presidential election vote is still in question, but judging from their political donations, it’s all over among college professors in swing states. Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden has raised more than $9 from faculty and administrators in these swing states for every $1 raised by President Trump,” according to Christian Schneider writing in the National Review.
“Employees at the largest universities in Arizona, Florida, Ohio, Michigan, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin donated more than $2.2 million to Biden, while Trump collected only $219,000, according to Federal Election Commission data of donors who listed their employers.
“When the data are expanded to all federal candidates, the disparity grows even larger. In swing states, faculty donated $11.2 million to Democratic federal candidates, compared with $596,000 collected by Republicans. In other words, Democrats raised 95 percent of all the funds collected from faculty members in America’s most politically competitive states…
