One-Party Campus
Maimon Schwarzschild

Paul Caron, at TaxProf Blog, tabulates the political contributions by law professors this year.

Overall, 92.7 percent of the contributions went to Democrats.  But for presidential candidates, it was a little less evenly split than that: 94.7 percent to Barack Obama, 5.3 percent to John McCain.

The breakdown in political contributions by professors at various law schools includes:

  • Harvard:  100% ($23,632) to Democrats, 0% to Republicans
  • Chicago:  100% ($14,158) to Democrats, 0% to Republicans
  • Michigan:  100% ($11,653) to Democrats, 0% to Republicans
  • Stanford:  100% ($8,900) to Democrats, 0% to Republicans
  • Texas:  100% ($6,107) to Democrats, 0% to Republicans
  • UC-Berkeley:  100% ($4,850) to Democrats, 0% to Republicans
  • Pennsylvania:  100% ($2,711) to Democrats, 0% to Republicans

That's better than Stalin, Khrushchev, or Brezhnev ever did in Soviet election results.

I guess that explains obamas support in the college crowd - indoctrination at college; and when they get out to the real world they becme republicans or well the semsible ones would. The rest remain bitter liberals not knowing why they are bitter and spiteful to their politcal foes.

If you fellows and fellines at USD were cut out perhaps that 94.7 could become a more respectable 98.6. Just sayin'.

In fairness, if hockey moms can swoon over one of their own making it onto a presidential ticket, then why not law professors?
