99% of Donations at Princeton University Go to Obama

by College Fix Staff on November 6, 2012

About half the country wants to see Mitt Romney in the White House. But, if you are looking for ideological diversity that reflects that percentage, you aren’t going to find it at Princeton University.

A total of 157 University faculty and staff members donated directly to the presidential candidates, with only two of those donations going to Gov. Mitt Romney, the records show. Total donations directly to Obama exceeded $169,000, while donations to Romney summed to exactly $1,901.

Only one Princeton faculty member, James Shinn ’73, a visiting lecturer at the Keller Center for Innovation in Engineering Education, donated directly to Mitt Romney’s campaign. The only other donation to the Romney campaign from a University employee was contributed by Mark Oresic, a custodian in the 1903 Hall.
