Political leaning

<p>What way do Princeton students generally lean politically? What would the ratio of Democrats to Republicans to Libertarians, etc. be? Are students taking an interest in the coming election?</p>

<p>From what I've heard, it's more democratic than republican, but it is more conservative than the other ivies.</p>

<p>whoa you're from japan? lol maybe philntex can practice his japanese with you.</p>

<p>I think tiger08 has answered several versions of this question on the "ask princeton students" thread, I would look there</p>

<p>its slightly more liberal but its actually oddly near even at princeton, unlike most other schools where its very heavily liberal. princeton is more even i heard</p>

<p>AHHHH!!! Yeah, we'll definitely have to talk Japanese soon. I start next week. Yay! Where in Japan are you? And yeah, I've heard that Princeton is a fairly balanced mix of liberals and conservatives (Dems/Repubs) as well. Not extremely politically active, though, but that's okay for some.</p>

<p>Princeton definitely is not politically "oddly near even". Liberals have a large majority. I'd say 65:35:5 D:R:L. I can't say how politically active the campus is because I have no basis for comparison, but students talk politics casually every day.</p>

<p>how does 65,35,5 add up to 100, that's what i'm assuming you're doing?</p>

<p>Pshaw. Everyone knows that Libertarianism is the only political stance that doesn't butcher interpretation of the constitution.</p>

<p>yeah, 65+35+5=105%</p>
