Prepare to (not) be shocked: A
new Young America’s Foundation study reveals that the nation’s top ten colleges
gave donations almost exclusively to to the Left. Of all the 2010 candidate
contribution dollars coming from these schools’ professors and staff, 84% of
them went to Democrats. (This must be that "campus diversity" we're always hearing about.)
Here is a breakdown of candidate contributions that went to Democrats for each
individual school, in order of U.S. News and World Report’s rankings:
Institute of Technology: 94%
Institute of Technology: 70%
research also looked at contributions to liberal political action committees
(PACs). Of all the 2010 PAC contributions dollars coming from these schools
professors and staff, 94% of them went to liberal PACs.
totaling the dollars acquired for liberal candidates and PACs versus
conservative candidates and PACs, 87% of the dollars raised went to liberal
candidates and PACs. This research is evidence that college professors are
still perpetuating the same ideas that have failed in the past and should be a
sobering reminder of where our teachers’ loyalties rest.
This might be related, but I'll leave that for you to decide: another one of our studies has been updated: President Obama
now has given 53 speeches on college and high school campuses since
being sworn in, still averaging one campus speech per 12 days. The
number is unprecedented, but can be partially explained by the statistics
Surprised? Neither are we - but it's helpful to see it on paper. To download a copy of our research, click here.
Notes on research method: This research was conducted by utilizing
the Federal Election Commission’s records. The list was generated by listing
each school as an employer and adding up the total dollars donated to
candidates and PACs.
