Harvard University student newspaper survey of graduates finds very few lean conservative

A Harvard University student newspaper survey of graduating students found that only 6.4% of the people who responded were conservative-leaning after attending the private Ivy League institution.

The survey, conducted by The Crimson, was emailed to all 1,269 graduating seniors and drew a nearly 40% response rate. It found that 4% of graduates from the class of 2022 lean conservative, and 2.4% lean “very conservative.” It also surveyed the students about what their politics were before attending Harvard and found that 7.1% of the graduating class identified as conservative before attending the college. Among the results:

*40.7% of the students identified as progressive after attending Harvard, compared to 44.7% prior to attending the college. 27.9% of graduating students identify as “very progressive,” which is an increase from the 20.9% who said they were “very progressive” prior to attending the college.

*1.4% of the graduating students surveyed identify as apolitical, according to the student newspaper.

*93% of graduating students surveyed hold an unfavorable view of former President Trump, according to the report. 51.8% of graduating students surveyed have a favorable view of President Biden, compared to 30.1% who hold an unfavorable view.

The survey also polled support on various other social and political issues such as abolishing ICE and Elon Musk’s Twitter purchase.

It found that 54.1% of graduating students surveyed support “defunding or abolishing ICE,” and just 15.3% support “Elon Musk’s bid to buy Twitter.”

This is not news! It’s been this way for decades or longer. The old saying, “If you’re not a liberal when you’re young, you haven’t got a heart. If you’re still a liberal when you get older, you haven’t got a brain”, is still true!

How many conservative students chose a conformist answer or just refused to answer at all? Some “sirveys” are just data mining. Who wants their lives wrecked over a survey?

    With the deterioration of education quality in recent years and the rise of wokeness, how many “conservative” students really want to go to Harvard? How many actually conservative students would willingly self-identify as conservative and expose themselves to potential cancellation?

If they ever found a conservative student at Harvard he would be in the Guiness Book of World Records.

I bet the numbers are different after they have paid taxes for a few years.

In other breaking news, scholars at Harvard are still mystified by reports that the number of Jews showed a severe decrease in the 1944 German census.
