More on interesting polls

A poll of Ivy League professors on their vote in the 2000 presidential election.

Keep in mind these are schools that people in middle America (including myself when I lived there) think belongs to the richest most elitist Republicans.

84% Gore
9% Bush
6% Nadar

A 90/10 split in favor of liberals.

WSJ: "At Stanford University, 151 professors were aligned with parties of the left (e.g., Democrats, Greens) and 17 were affiliated with parties of the right (Republicans, Libertarians)."

And then this Chairman from Duke takes it to a whole new level:

"At Duke University -- where Democratic deans and humanities professors outnumber Republican ones by a factor of 18 -- the chairman of the philosophy department recently offered his unvarnished views on the subject. "We try to hire the best, smartest people available," said Robert Brandon. "If, as John Stuart Mill said, stupid people are generally conservative, then there are lots of conservatives we will never hire.""

And this is the big universities, not to mention all the teachers unions that always support Democrats---- PASSIONATELY.


THE POINT I WANT TO DRIVE HOME IS THIS:

There is a factual bias in both the media and our schools. And, these are two things in life that have big influences on shaping opinion.
