    Higher Education Employees Donate Over Fives Times More to Biden Than Trump

    “The contributions to Biden have come widely, from about 8,800 donors, compared to the 2,800 higher education employees who want to see another four years of a Trump administration.”

    Is anyone surprised by this? The left owns higher education and Trump Derangement Syndrome is prevalent on campuses across the country.

    Inside Higher Ed reports:

    Biden Beats Trump in Higher Ed Contributions

    Though the nation finds itself deeply divided, it’s clear whom employees at the nation’s higher education institutions are supporting financially in the presidential race.

    According to federal elections records, those who listed their employer as a college or university have given Democratic candidate Joe Biden about $4.9 million in contributions, more than five times as much as the $890,000, including donations from for-profit college executives, that they have given President Trump.

    The contributions to Biden have come widely, from about 8,800 donors, compared to the 2,800 higher education employees who want to see another four years of a Trump administration.

    Even more pronounced are whom those college or university employees, who listed their occupation either as professor, instructor or teacher, are giving to. The educators have given about $2.7 million to Biden, according to Federal Election Commission records in the election cycle beginning in January 2019 — or seven times as much as the $353,00 they have to Trump.

    That those in higher education are overwhelmingly supporting Biden isn’t surprising, given that Trump’s views on climate change spurred a March for Science in 2017, his downplaying of the threat of coronavirus has angered many in the medical community and his brand of populism has been particular popular among those without a college education. Or, in the eyes of conservatives, the support for Biden reflects the dominance of liberal viewpoints on campus.

    “America’s universities have become a safe haven for liberal professors to use classrooms as personal soapboxes rather than an open forum to perpetuate diversity of thought and opinion,” Trump campaign spokeswoman Courtney Parella said in a statement.

    Well, doesn’t thi just prove that electing Biden is the smarter, wiser option? After all, these are educators and therefore must be smarter than everyone else. Right?

    Right?

    At the start of this year a study reported that 97% of college employees had donated to Democrats.

    ONLY 5 times? I’m surprised it’s not a higher ratio.

    After arguing and almost fist fighting graduate engineers for 50 years, I can state for a fact some people get MORE DENSE with too much education and NO common sense.
