Conservative college news outlet Campus Reform has done some major fact-finding since the midterm elections, and their results are fairly shocking. With Election Day now past, polls showed that young voters turned out in record numbers. While we are all aware of a liberal bias in higher education, Campus Reform analyses are now finding the full extent of left-wing influence that college faculty and administrators may have had on these key voters. A series of articles show that college students in multiple states, including the deep red states of Texas, Missouri, and Georgia, are exposed to nearly unanimous Democrat supporting, politically active college faculty and administrators.
Campus Reform researchers analyzed public donor records from the Federal Election Committee (FEC) to calculate the percentage of politically active college faculty and administrators in states with key Senate, House, and gubernatorial races: Florida, Texas, Missouri, Oregon, and Georgia.
University of Oregon faculty and administrators donated a total of over $75,000 to politicians or political organizations. They contributed 99.9 percent of the money to Democrat politicians or organizations. Just $35 of that went to Republican causes or politicians.
One hundred percent of all UGA administrators gave to Democrat politicians or Democrat organizations, while nearly 70% of faculty members donated to Democrats.
University of Texas System (UT) faculty and administrators donated roughly 95% to Democrat politicians or political organizations, leaving just 6.5% to Republican politicians or causes.
The FEC records for all public Florida colleges revealed that 93.55 % of donating faculty members gave to Democrat politicians or organizations while only four Florida public college administrators donated to Republicans.
And University of Missouri records indicate that 97.6 % of donating faculty members gave money to Democrat politicians or organizations. Just eight faculty members and one Mizzou administrator gave to Republican politicians from 2017-2018.
This isn’t simply a left-wing bias in our public colleges. The donor base of the Democratic party firmly controls the much of American higher education. A well rounded education seems extinct today, and the very freedoms of speech and thought are even at risk. Parents and students should be aware of what’s happening amongst college faculty even in the deepest conservative strongholds!
