Dartmouth Study Highlights Widespread Intolerance And Groupthink Among Liberal Students

Dartmouth College recently conducted a study of the “political landscape” of its student body — and ended up finding an alarming degree of intolerance and groupthink, particularly among the liberal students.

The study was a campus-wide survey conducted from April 9 to April 13 that asked a total of 432 students a range of questions, including their opinions of Donald Trump, their willingness to room with people of another political ideology, and their views on allowing conservatives to speak on campus. The campus paper, The Dartmouth, provided a summary of the results.

Of the students interviewed, only 23 percent identified as Republican, while 63 percent identified as Democrat and just 14 percent as independent. Asked how they felt about Donald Trump’s handling of the presidency so far, an overwhelming 85 percent of the students said they strongly or somewhat disapproved. Only 11 percent said they strongly or somewhat approved of Trump. The Dartmouth notes that the 85 percent result ends up being exactly the same percentage that said in a previous survey they intended to vote for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election….
