Harvard Faculty Donate to Democrats by Wide Margin

Not a surprise the donations go to the democrats. Somewhere around $3 million!

Harvard Faculty Donate to Democrats by Wide Margin

Eighty-four percent of campaign contributions made by a group of 614 Harvard faculty, instructors, and researchers between 2011 and the third quarter of 2014 went to federal Democratic campaigns and political action committees, according to a Crimson analysis of Federal Election Commission filings.During the three years, the Harvard affiliates represented in analyzed public filings gave nearly $3 million to federal campaigns and candidates. Each of Harvard’s schools leaned to the left in the contributions made by their affiliates, many by wide margins. Ninety-six percent of donations in the data set from the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, which includes Harvard College, supported Democratic efforts. That figure was even higher—nearly 98 percent—at Harvard Law School. Harvard Business School was the most Republican, with 37 percent of its contributions supporting Republicans and 62 percent going to Democrats.

 “We hold these truths to be self-evident,”  former vice president Biden said during a campaign event in Texas on Monday. "All men and women created by — you know, you know, the thing.”

Re: Harvard Faculty Donate to Democrats by Wide Margin

It's America. People are free to support the candidates of their choice.
I imagine that political donations by, say the coal industry, tilt heavily republican.

What is your point?

We live in a time in which decent and otherwise sensible people are surrendering too easily to the hectoring of morons or extremists.
