Apple Employees Overwhelmingly Gave to Democrats Over Republicans Last Cycle

A new report reveals just how in-the-bag the employees of Apple were for Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential election. According to Forbes, Clinton was on the receiving end of $1.8 million in donations last cycle.

Compare that sum to the amount that Apple employees donated to Donald Trump, and you get what Forbes describes as “a rounding error” in Trump’s total $334.8 million haul. Apple employees donated just $6,786 to the would-be president.

Forbes explains how they came about the figures:

By scanning through campaign filings and identifying donations by individual’s employer, including misspellings, last month GovPredict revealed over 90% of political donations made by Amazon and Alphabet’s employees since 2004 had gone to support Democratic candidates and causes.

Today’s findings reveal Apple employees are equally left-leaning, with 91% of their donations going to the Democrats.

In real dollars, that means that $5,679,870 went from Apple employees to Democrat candidates since 2004, and just $587,354 went to Republican candidates in that same time period.

This could explain, in part, why Cook is so eager to cozy up to Trump these days: damage control.
