College students are the backbone of Sen. Bernie Sanders' campaign. But, while millennials at America's top colleges backed the Vermont senator, the administrators, professors and staff overwhelmingly favored Hillary Clinton — at least with their wallets.
Employees of America's Top 10 universities according to U.S. News and World Report (the list includes 11 schools because there was a tie for tenth place) gave 84 percent of all presidential donations to Clinton.
According to the FEC reporting, the former First Lady's campaign, as well as the Hillary Victory Fund, received $791,824 in donations from the employees of Princeton, Harvard, Yale, Columbia, Stanford, University of Chicago, MIT, Duke, University of Pennsylvania, California Institute of Technology and John Hopkins.
Sanders received the second most in donations, with just $63,209.
The contributions were so one-sided towards liberals that Lawrence Lessig, a liberal Harvard professor who dropped out of the race before a single primary, still received more donations in 2015 and 2016 than any Republican besides former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and Sen. Marco Rubio.
