Mid-Term Elections Political Contributions

Zip code 94305 is Stanford University.  Residents include faculty, high-level staff, students, and their immediate families.  Open Secrets reports political contributions of $200 and above.

Total contributions in 94305 for 2009 and 2010 amounted to $379,555.  Of this, $57,017, or 15%, was given to Republican candidates and Republican Party organizations.  The balance, $322,538 (85%) was given to Democrat candidates and Democrat Party organizations.

Is it surprising, then, that Stanford and other Ivies with similar contribution patterns have a left-liberal reputation?
