The survey, carried out by the conservative higher education outlet The College Fix, determined that "just 61 Republican professors [were found] across 65 departments at seven universities as part of a recent survey of professor party affiliations nationwide."

"A total of 33 of the departments had zero Republican professors identified within them — slightly more than 50 percent of all departments surveyed," the outlet noted.
