A new analysis shows that five out of every six dollars donated by bureaucrats and students at America’s top universities have gone to Democratic presidential campaigns.

According to Campus Reform, out of the $1.3 million donated by more than 1,200 professors, administrators and students at America’s top 50 schools since mid-October, $1.1 million went into the pockets of Democrats.

Using U.S. News & World Report’s list of the top 50 national universities in concert with donation documents released by the Federal Election Committee, Campus Reform was able to track where the donations have gone. (RELATED: The 53 Best Colleges In America PERIOD)

Hillary Clinton came out as the winner at earning academic donations, raking in a staggering $917,591 in donations from the colleges. Sanders raised the second most, generating just over $128,000.

For Republicans, Jeb Bush raised the most cash, bringing in over $75,000 — or 5.75 percent of all the donations. Rick Santorum brought in the least amount of either party, getting just one donation valued at $125.

Though Hillary pulled in over 70 percent of the $1.3 million total from the top schools, it’s Ivy League colleges that show the former secretary of state the most love.

An earlier Campus Reform article reported that 87.51 percent of all Ivy League donations went to Hillary’s campaign. Bernie Sanders, on the other hand, only pulled in 6.63 percent of Ivy donations — with Republicans earning far less. (RELATED: Hillary Clinton Is CRUSHING IT With Donations At America’s Ivy League Schools)
