Ask A Genius 183 – Academic Political Views (Part 1)

Scott Douglas Jacobsen & Rick Rosner

May 30, 2017

[Beginning of recorded material]

Scott Douglas Jacobsen: There was a survey of academicians’ political views with about 5% as Conservative and 23/24% as Neo-Marxist with the rest as other. I would see these in many gender studies and other departments, in terms of those departments being more likely Neo-Marxist. I forget the precise details.

Rick Rosner: You’re saying conservatives are wildly underrepresented in academia.

Jacobsen: Yes, they are wildly overrepresented in government at the same time, in America.

Rosner: Also, you’re saying people who are radically Liberal are overrepresented in academia.
