Silicon Valley Techies Give More to Republicans Than You Think

  • Intel, Oracle employees' giving shows preference for right
  • Data is based on value of workers' donations last year

Engineers and other staffers at some of Silicon Valley’s biggest technology companies are leaning more Republican than you might think.

As the presidential race got rolling last year, employees from Intel Corp., Yahoo! Inc., Oracle Corp. and Cisco Systems Inc. gave most dollars to Republican candidates and their party. The reverse was true for workers at Google, Facebook Inc. and Apple Inc., where the majority of contributions were channeled to Democrats.
