Letter from a Disaffected Republican Professor
10 months ago

"When I was a student in the late 1950s and early 1960s, many, if not most, of my professors were Republicans. Today, a professor myself, I find that few of my colleagues are Republicans or vote Republican.

Conservatives blame this change on the 1960s cultural revolution and decry the “liberal bias” in academia. But the real reason is lack of reason: How can any academician belong to a party in which its leaders deny science (evolution and climate change) and pander to religious extremists who wish to define and control personal morality (abortion and same-sex marriage)?"

Many voters (professors or not) feel this way.
