The vast majority of Ohio State college faculty members who donated to political campaigns during this year’s election cycle strongly favored Democratic candidates, according to reports.
Faculty members at Ohio’s 11 largest universities have donated more than $939,000 to federal candidates, according to The College Fix, a conservative news site that reports on higher education. Of that amount, $868,000 went to Democratic candidates.
Donors poured $168,000 into presidential candidates, with Democrat Joe Biden receiving 83% of the funds compared to 17% for President Trump.

Trump leads Biden 48% to 46.5% in the state, according to Real Clear Politics. In 2016, Trump won Ohio by 8 percentage points.

At other schools, Trump has been outraged by Democratic candidates who have since dropped out of the presidential race earlier this year, the news sites reported. Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., raised more than $24,000 at the University of Cincinnati while his supporters donated $3,300 to Trump.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., Andrew Yang and Pete Buttigieg also overplayed Trump.
