Diversity in academia?

From the Daily Princetonian:
The majority of University faculty and staff members who have donated to the 2012 presidential candidates have donated to President Barack Obama’s campaign, according to numbers tracked by the Center for Responsive Politics in Washington, D.C.

A total of 157 University faculty and staff members donated directly to the presidential candidates, with only two of those donations going to Gov. Mitt Romney, the records show. Total donations directly to Obama exceeded $169,000, while donations to Romney summed to exactly $1,901.
The question is, How representative is Princeton?
