Who Does GW Faculty Support for the Candidacy?

Believe it or not, when you donate money to a political campaign, who you are, when and how much you spent, and to whom you gave your money to is all public information.

There are several sites on the web that host this information in a searchable format by name, location, candidate, and employer.

A quick look at shows which candidate GW's faculty favored with their money. Surprise surprise, it's Barack Obama.

As far as dollar amount of donations, GW faculty gave, in total, $89,195. For the presidential candidates, most of that money went to Hillary Clinton, despite Obama's lead in number of donors.

Just some fun facts to know and tell all your friends.

I know that GW profs/college profs in generally are overwhelmingly liberal... but whoa. Would've expected a little more for Repubs.
