The Harvard Crimson did a recent survey of the political beliefs of the Harvard staff and revealed something very startling: There’s practically zero ideological diversity present on this Ivy League campus.  They interviewed 260 people before Elizabeth Warren – who is a former Harvard professor – dropped out of the race. 

Including in the polling were emeritus, tenured, tenure-track, and non-tenure-track faculty. The results were both predictable and staggering:

Forty-four percent of respondents backed Warren; twenty percent of respondents backed U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders.

Only three people said they support President Donald J. Trump.  That’s not three percent of people, but three people…. 1%.

Interestingly, almost forty percent of the respondents described themselves as “very liberal,” while another forty percent identified as “liberal.”  About twenty percent said they were “moderate,” which usually just a self-congratulatory way of saying they’re liberal.   

In other words, diversity is dead at Harvard.  No, not the superficial kind, in which people have different skin colors and hair colors but thing identically.  I’m talking about the hard kind – diversity of opinion, diversity of thought.

Remember this poll the next time liberals lecture you about “diversity” and refused to be shamed by these liberal finger-waggers.
