College Professors 95 Times More Likely to Donate to Democrats Than Republicans: Study

A recent study found that college professors across the United States are overwhelmingly in favor of Democrats over Republicans when it comes to making political donations.

The study, conducted by Heterodox Academy Director of Research Sean Stevens and Brooklyn College Professor Mitchell Langbert and published by non-profit organization National Association of Scholars, showed that political contributions made by college faculty members were “almost exclusively to Democratic candidates and committees.”

Upon their analysis of Federal Elections Commission‘s voter registration and political donation data of some 12,300 college professors at universities in 31 states and the District of Columbia during the past two election cycles in 2015-16 and 2017-18, the two researchers found that professors donated to Democrats more than Republicans by a 95:1 ratio. Nearly half of those professors are registered Democrats, while only 5.7 percent are registered Republicans.

Likely the same in Canada.
