I agree with the sentiment that it's too early for this information to be more than directional, but it's fun to see it just the same. Today's Seattle PI has an article that looks at early numbers on donations to Presidential candidates across the political spectrum:
Microsoft employees haven't contributed as much to the major U.S. presidential candidates as Google employees have, but collectively they're more evenhanded in their support. Or maybe they're more divided in their political leanings.
Those are a few of the conclusions to be drawn from a basic analysis of campaign finance reports submitted this month to the Federal Elections Commission.
There is some additional analysis of the numbers in a post on Robert McLaws blog. It's no secret that as a rule the tech industry skews more liberal and libertarian in thought, but it's interesting to see the comparisons between tech companies.
I identified with some of the comments on Robert's post from British born writers describing how strange a fit the American Political spectrum is for those of us not born or raised here.
