And The Most Politically-Biased Profession Is…., by Tyler Durden.
Nonpartisan polling firm Crowdpac analyzed federal campaign-contribution records going back to 1980 — scoring individual donors on where they fall on the political spectrum based on which candidates the gave money to, reports Business Insider.
Who knew – entertainers and academics are the most liberal, while miners and farmers are the most conservative. The middle of the graphic takes a bit of explaining; “the “purple” professions that appear in the middle of the spectrum aren’t really bipartisan. They’re actually extremely polarized: Rather than having a large number of donors with middle of the road politics, they’re largely split, with a big liberal group on one side and a similarly sized large conservative group on the other”
No surprises there, though it is nice to see one’s impressions confirmed by hard data.
