College profs donate to Dems by 95:1 ratio

Empower Wisconsin | Jan. 27, 2020 

It’s no surprise that U.S. college professors lean to the left, but a new study shows college educators donate to Democrats over Republicans by an astounding 95-to-1 ratio. 

The analysis, published by the National Association of Scholars, examined the political donations of more than 12,000 college professors at universities in 31 states and the District of Columbia. It tracked the past two election cycles. 

Of those professors, 2,112 made political donations — 2,081 of which were donated to Democrats, Campus Reform reports. Just 22 of those 2,112 professors donated to Republicans. Nine professors donated to both Republicans and Democrats, according to the study.  

“The study follows a series of analyses by Campus Reform, which looked at political donations among faculty at individual schools across the U.S. In each one of those analyses, more than 90 percent of donations by college administrators and faculty were to Democrats,” according to the website.
