Overwhelmingly, the professoriate supports Democrats, writes David Brooks in the NY Times.
All but 1 percent of the campaign donations made by employees of William & Mary College went to Democrats. In the Harvard crowd, Democrats got 96 percent of the dollars. At M.I.T., it was 94 percent. Yale is a beacon of freethinking by comparison; 8 percent of its employee donations went to Republicans.
“Among journalists, there were 93 Kerry donors for every Bush donor,” Brooks writes.
So much for diversity.
