    Actually, the 3% is surprisingly high – must have snuck a few R’s into the Engineering School.

    CU was celebrity faux-Indian Ward Churchill’s millieu for decades.

  2. John says:

    They are called “tokens” I would expect.

    A puzzling surprising result, a Pew poll says that only 6% of scientists identify as Republicans. That’s right, 6%: http://nation.foxnews.com/scientists/2009/07/13/only-6-scientists-are-republicans-55-are-dems
    That’s what we are up against. A scientific establishment that walks hand in hand with the liberal media establishment that will by and large sympathize with the following quotes:
    “We’ve got to ride the global warming issue. Even if the theory of global warming is wrong, we will be doing the right thing …” -leftist Senator Tim Wirth, 1993
    “A massive campaign must be launched to de-develop the United States… [we] must design a stable, low-consumption economy in which there is a much more equitable distribution of wealth.” -John Holdren, O’s Science Czar
    “The Environmentalist’s Dream is an Egalitarian Society based on: rejection of economic growth, a smaller population, eating lower on the food chain, consuming a lot less, and sharing a much lower level of resources much more equally.” -Aaron Wildavsky, UC Berkeley
    “We can’t drive our SUVs, and, uh, you know, eat as much as we want… and then just expect that every other country [is going to be ok with that].” -B H Obamna
    “It doesn’t matter what is true, it only matters what people believe is true.” -Paul Watson, Greenpeace
    “We have to offer up scary scenarios… each of us has to decide the right balance between being effective [lying] and being honest [ineffective].” -Stephen Schneider, lead ipcc author, 1989

    I have always been told that smart people are in the minority.

    It could be just a matter of science types being apolitical, or at least not affiliated with a political party. The humanitarian types usually are, though.

      Hey Juice! As Eric’s link alluded…

      “A Pew Research Center Poll from July 2009 showed that only around 6 percent of U.S. scientists are Republicans; 55 percent are Democrats, 32 percent are independent, and the rest “don’t know” their affiliation.”

      So it is not a question of being apolitical. I have said for years that leftists tend to fall for fanciful theory and navel gazing, whilst normal folks are about building things and actually making life better. So leftists stay in school, and the rest of us make the world go round.
