What’s going on?
A new study shows liberal bias on campus by the numbers, revealing a startling gap between Democrats and Republicans among college faculty. Nearly 40 percent of the colleges surveyed had zero professors who identify as Republicans.
What else did the study find?
Using a sample of 51 top-ranked liberal arts colleges, the study looked at 8,688 full-time, Ph.D.-holding professors and found that the ratio of Democrats to Republicans is 10.4:1, or around 10 Democrat professors for every one professor registered as a Republican.
If the military colleges West Point and Annapolis are removed from the sample, that ratio widens even further: nearly 13 Democrats for each Republican professor.
On today’s show, Glenn listed some of the most startling numbers from this report and pointed out one key statistic that shows why we have a media bias problem.
“The field with the scariest liberal-to-conservative ratio shouldn’t be a surprise at all,” Glenn said. “Out of nearly 9,000 professors and 51 of the top-rated schools, the number of Democrat to Republican communications facility members … is 108 to zero.”
