96% of the faculty and staff at Ivy League colleges that contributed to the 2012 presidential race donated to President Obama's campaign, reveals a Campus Reform investigation compiled using numbers released by the Federal Election Commission (FEC).
From the eight elite schools, $1,211,267 was contributed to the Obama campaign, compared to the $114,166 given to Romney.
The highest percentage of Obama donors came from Brown University and Princeton, with 99 percent of donations from faculty and staff going towards his campaign.
Dartmouth College and the University of Pennsylvanias faculty contributed to the Presidents campaign in the lowest numbers, with only 94 percent donating to the Obama campaign.
Below is the breakdown of numbers compiled by Campus Reform:
Brown University: Obama donors: 129 giving $67,728 | Romney donors: 1 giving $500
Columbia University: Obama donors: 652 giving $361,754 | Romney donors: 21 giving $34,250
Cornell University: Obama donors: 282 giving $141,731 | Romney donors: 11 giving $8,610
Dartmouth College: Obama donors: 90 giving $51,018 | Romney donors: 6 giving $2,850
Harvard University: Obama donors: 555 giving $373,556 | Romney donors: 30 giving $34,500
Princeton University: Obama donors: 277 giving $155,008 | Romney donors: 4 giving $1,901
University of Pennsylvania: Obama donors: 376 giving $209,839 | Romney donors: 26 giving $22,900
Yale University: Obama donors: 399 giving $186,834 | Romney donors: 13 giving $8,655
The hunt is on for those 4%!! Seek and find, indeed.
May they all lose their jobs and pensions during America’s transition to Third World serfdom.
It is almost a cliche of History that when there is a Communist revolution, it is wholeheartedly supported and impelled by Academia.
It is also a cliche of history that Once the Revolution has taken hold, the VERY FIRST ones to lose their lives or freedoms are the Academics.
The most egregious example was Pol Pot, who murdered anyone who was literate or wore glasses, which indicated that they MIGHT be.
You initiated a policy to tolerate the Marxist-Alinsky radicals and let them rant; not only has it not ceased but was constantly augmented by decades of infiltration and indoctrination. You now have two Americas. In my opinion, it will not cease until a crisis shall have been reached and passed. A house divided against itself cannot stand. I believe this government cannot endure, permanently, half statist and half free; I do not expect the house to fall; but I do expect it will cease to be divided. It will become all one thing, or all the other.
The Establishment's New Normal
ten increase their taxes, take their incomes down as the new Dem party states people make too much and lets re distribute their wealth
after all HTYE VOTED FOR THIS COMMUNISM COMING TO US
Today, there is more diversity of thought in the North Korean parliament than in the average elite American university.
That is an excellent point.
Acadumbia needs a good fumigating.
“I imagine that pretty much reflects nearly all of the LeftistCommieSocialistDemocrat Universities in America... “
Who, in turn, “produce” the teachers that subvert our children in the government schools. If we are ever to have a chance to fix this country, it has to start with the “professors.” Personally, I’d like to put them all in internment camps for at least twenty years. Maybe shoveling crap would be a revelation to them.
If a corporation had 96% of its managers/employees donating to one candidate the FEC would probably claim they were circumventing the corporate contribution rules.
Wait a minute—big government grants do benefit universities.
That’s almost as one-sided as the 98% of black women from the age 18-29 who voted for Barry.
Same in business and politics. Good luck, boss, with the consequences of choices of “human resources” managers—consequences somewhere in the near distance.
This obviously does not include medical school faculty, who while more liberal than their private colleagues, are not at all on the whole liberal.
Now you know why our kids aren’t getting a decent education at these schools. More like schools for Obama Zombies, led by the Zombie Masters (aka PhD professors).
Let’s see how Obamacare and the new taxes affect them. Could prove to be interesting and I’m predicting that some significant donors will not be giving to these schools in the future.
I’m shocked that there were 4% who didn’t.

I think it is entirely possible to retake at least a part of academia for conservatives. With the current economic system many colleges and universities are relying on adjunct or part time faculty more and more. If Freepers with advanced degrees, (Masters or Doctorate), who have some time available, obtain positions at colleges think of the impact we can have. Sure adjunct faculty are generally limited to a few courses per semester but we begin to make a difference one classroom at a time. I have been teaching humanities and history at my local CC.
It is very gratifying each semester to hear from students how Ive opened their eyes and got them to think critically. And that is really all it is, thinking critically. I dont preach to them or advance my agenda. I often end up playing the lefts position in the role of Devils Advocate. I just make sure that I present both sides of any issue we are discussing and then let the students decide....it is amazing how many of them are really conservative and didnt even realize it.
