Are American universities politically biased?

Or are they not nearly so often enough? Idea for poll attributed to this article: An Alumni reflects on Macalester

As a generalization, but a valid one based on what I see and read and from my experience and the experiences of friends and co-workers, a majority of professors are liberal. And this shouldn't be too surprising since a majority of them are very cocooned and live a pretty sheltered life. Most have no or little business experience and have had a relatively soft life.

From my personal experience, the two profs I had that were right-wingers were extremely so. And I could never figure out why.
Thanks from Jimmyb and Panther

They are thinkers not doers

and when you sit and think you believe that 17 trillion dollars of debt 125 trillion dollars of unfunded liablities is a manageable fiscal status.
