Imbalanced: A Study of Influence at the University of Virginia by Mitchell Langbert | Report

This analysis finds that political donations from the faculty and staff of the University of Virginia go almost exclusively to the Democratic Party. If the faculty and staff are combined, the ratio of Democratic to Republican (D:R) donations is 18:1. If faculty and staff are viewed separately, for faculty the D:R ratio is 24:1 while for staff the ratio the ratio is 16:1. Of the few blue collar-staff donors whom I could identify, the D:R ratio is 11:8, much different from the white-collar staff’s ratio of 17.5:1 and the faculty’s ratio of 24:1.
