The right-wing Daily Caller has analyzed political giving by university faculty and administrators to political candidates and found that the University of Arkansas givers are the “most liberal” — meaning most inclined toward Democratic candidates — in the SEC.
University of Arkansas employees have donated proportionally more to Democrats since 1990 than employees at any other SEC school — $621,100 to Democrats, versus $90,400 to Republicans, according to a Daily Caller News Foundation analysis of OpenSecrets.org data. University of South Carolina employees came in second, giving $512,700 to Democrats, versus $114,000 to Republicans.
The time studied includes a period when not one, but two, former UA faculty members — Bill and Hillary Clinton — mounted three presidential campaigns.
Here’s a link to UA-specific data. Charts note the rise in giving in presidential years. In the 2013-14 cycle, the top recipient, with $35,000, was U.S. Sen. Mark Pryor, a centrist Democrat whose father David Pryor was a member of the UA Board of Trustees at the time.
