Ivy League Still Gives Overwhelmingly to Democrats
by

I crunched the numbers at OpenSecrets.org to see who Ivy League faculties were giving to in the Presidential primaries.

Democratic candidates received $808,404 in contributions while Republican candidates received just $145,376 in contributions. That means Democrats received about 85 percent of all money given while Republicans received just 15 percent. In other words, for every dollar given to a Republican candidate, about $5.50 cents was given to a Democratuic candidate. Barack Obama alone has taken in more than three times the donations from Ivy Leauge employees than all the Republican candidates combined.

Here is the raw data:

Democrats

Barack Obama – $453,393
Hillary Clinton – $245,954
John Edwards – $48,406
Chris Dodd – $26,850
Bill Richardson – $22,400
Joe Biden – $9,700
Tom Vilsack – $1,250
Dennis Kucinich – $451
Mike Gravel – $0

Republicans

John McCain -$46,750
Mitt Romney – $42,750
Rudy Giuliani – $34,225
Ron Paul – $10,901
Mike Huckabee – $5,550
Sam Brownback – $2,600
Fred Thompson – $2,100
Alan Keyes – $500
James Gilmore – $0
Duncan Hunter – $0
Tommy Thompson – $0
Tom Tancredo – $0

The theme is, of course, academia remains overwhelmingly supportive of Democrats.
