An overwhelming majority of Ivy League college faculty and staff that donated to a presidential campaign this year, gave money to President Barack Obama’s campaign, according to the Federal Election Commission.

Among the Ivy League faculty and staff that donated to a 2012 presidential campaign, 96 percent contributed to Obama’s campaign.

Ivy League schools donated over $1.2 million in total to Obama, but only $114,166 to Romney.

A whopping 99 percent of donations to presidential campaigns from Brown University and Princeton went to the Obama campaign.

The lowest percentage of contributions to Obama came from Dartmouth College and the University of Pennsylvania. Just 94 percent of donations from each school went to the Obama campaign.
