Money Talks

(Fox News) - College administrators, faculty and other educators are putting their money behind Democrats over Republicans by a three-to-one margin in the presidential race.

Figures from the Center for Responsive Politics say Barack Obama is the clear favorite so far — collecting $2.1 million — about one-third of all the money donated this year. Hillary Clinton is second with $1.6 million.

Mitt Romney is the top Republican, placing fourth with $564,000 and Rudy Giuliani has taken in $462,000.
