Nate Silver (yes, that one) examines just how heavily the major Silicon Valley tech companies swung towards Obama this election. Remarkably:
Ron Paul, the libertarian-leaning Republican, raised about $42,000 from Google employees, considerably more than Mr. Romney did.
Romney only raised $25,539 from Google employees — 97% ($719,709) of the money from Google employees went to Obama.
That’s a little surprising just for the fact alone that many of those employees are likely in a tax bracket that would benefit more (in the fiscal sense) from Romney being elected. Good to see people not just voting with their wallets for their wallets.
