(NewsReady.com) – Critics of colleges and universities accuse them of having an anti-Right bias, though these concerns are often dismissed. Denouncers say that there’s no evidence to support such an assertion, while others claim that there’s, at the very least, a healthy balance between Conservative and Liberal faculty members. It turns out, there isn’t an equal representation of both ideologies.
A recent survey by the Harvard Crimson seems to reveal that there is less conservative representation among university staff members.
The survey was sent to a total of 1,341 FAS and SEAS faculty members at Harvard, which includes those labeled as emeritus, tenured, tenure-track, and non-tenure-track members. Of those 1,341 emailed, 476 accessed the survey, 416 answered at least one question, and 263 answered all questions. The results showed an extremely marginal amount of self-described conservatives.

Additionally, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) was one of the most popular presidential candidates across all age groups at the school. Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT) was also popular, though Pete Buttigieg was more popular among the oldest age bracket.
