Most Scientists Politically Liberal (Reality Must Have a Liberal Bias)
REALITY HAS A WELL KNOWN LIBERAL BIAS.... If you haven't seen it, the Pew Research Center's report on scientists and politics really is fascinating. There's plenty to chew on, but the political views of scientists themselves were of particular interest.
Pew surveyed more than 2,500 scientists, conducted in collaboration with the American Association for the Advancement of Science, which offered a pretty strong sample size. The survey found that more than half (55%) of the scientists identified themselves as Democrats, and nearly as many (52%) call themselves liberal. What's more, "Many of the scientists surveyed mentioned in their open-ended comments that they were optimistic about the Obama administration's likely impact on science."
