In my naivete, I thought this was a good idea. I thought I could say whatever I wanted, because I was “my own person now.”
But my parents simply blamed my differing beliefs on liberal professors who had “brainwashed” me into changing my political belief system. I guess in another life I was a Republican.
Basically, Harvard discovered that although most professors vote Democrat, they identify themselves as being politically moderate. Conservative professors are still in the minority.
I just found it an interesting tidbit and an excuse to tell a story.
