Only 2 percent of sociologists self-identify as conservatives. “A new study of sociology professors found that only one out of 50 academics in the field self-identifies as conservative,” Toni Airaksinen reports on the Campus Reform blog maintained by the Leadership Institute. “Even after adding libertarians to the mix, only four percent of the sociologists surveyed reported holding right-of-center political views.”

“The study, ‘Sociology’s Sacred Victims and the Politics of Knowledge,’ was led by Seton Hall University professors Mark Horowitz and Anthony Haynor, along with University of Central Oklahoma professor Kenneth Kickham.”
