Nevertheless, the incoming class is marginally more conservative than last year’s. “Just under two-thirds of freshmen — 65.8 percent — identified as either very or somewhat liberal,” the Harvard Crimson reports. “This marks a slight decrease from last year, when 68.9 percent of respondents selected those labels.”
“Sixty-nine percent of respondents said they had a “very unfavorable” opinion of Trump, while just 7 percent indicated a favorable view of the Republican president.” You can bet Harvard will be working to change their minds.
“Just over 12 percent of students said they are conservative, compared to 11.8 percent of respondents in the Class of 2021,” according to the Crimson. “The number of self-identified moderates also increased slightly, rising from 19.3 percent to 22.1 percent.”
