Who's Backing Who?
Anita Sharpe on Culture
Fun David Brooks column today about the spreadsheet people vs. the paragraph people and how that translates into election fundraising.
Backing the Republicans: the spreadsheets (CEOs, bankers and accountants.) Although, for some reason, bankers at Citigroup and Bank of America are more apt to give to Democrats.
Backing the Dems: academics and lawyers. Writes Brooks: 'All but 1 percent of the campaign donations made by employees of William & Mary College went to Democrats. In the Harvard crowd, Democrats got 96 percent of the dollars. At M.I.T., it was 94 percent. Yale is a beacon of freethinking by comparison; 8 percent of its employee donations went to Republicans.'
What's still intriguing me is the divergence at Citigroup and Bank of America.
