The College Fix, a website that covers various issues in higher education from a “right” of center approach, recently examined the voter registration records for over 1,300 faculty at UNC-Chappel Hill. Guys what they found?
Although they were unable to ascertain the political affiliations of every faculty member, they did find a disparity of 12:1 democrat to republican. In 16 departments not a single republican could be found. Women’s Studies, African-American Studies, Asian Studies, Art, Anthropology, History............
Voter records are imperfect indicators of affiliation. Even so, these data converge with every other study to further document the political disparity found on US campuses.
