This story in Campus Reform helps to explain why college students are becoming increasingly comfortable giving up their liberty. 99.51% of the college professors who donated to a presidential candidate chose Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders.
According to FEC third quarter reports released October 16, 47 professors at the top 50 liberal arts colleges in the country, as ranked by U.S. News & World Report, have given to presidential campaigns. Of those 47 professors, Hamilton College History Professor Robert Paquette was the sole donor to a Republican candidate, giving $150 to Carly Fiorina’s campaign.
The remaining 99.51 percent went to Democrat candidates Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders. The 46 other professors collectively donated $20,875 to Hillary Clinton and $8,417 to Bernie Sanders. Professors donating to Clinton have given an average of $1,043.75. Those giving to Sanders donated an average of $323.73.
This shouldn’t surprise anyone, but here is some data that shows ideological diversity is lacking on college campuses.
