Employees of Big Four tech companies show lopsided support for Biden campaign

Source: CNN

Political contributions from employees at some of the nation's largest technology companies to Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden's campaign soared last month -- offering a snapshot of the way in which big tech is increasingly supporting his bid to oust President Donald Trump.

Biden's campaign collected more than $1.5 million last month from employees of Amazon, Google, Facebook and Apple and their technology-focused subsidiaries -- more than triple the roughly $450,000 that flowed from the firm's employees to his main campaign account in July, a CNN analysis of newly filed campaign reports shows.

The sharp increase came as Biden formally accepted his party's nomination during the Democratic National Convention and picked California Sen. Kamala Harris as his vice presidential nominee. Harris, a former San Francisco district attorney and state attorney general, has long-standing ties to some key Silicon Valley executives.

Biden and aligned Democratic party committees raised a record-breaking $364.5 million in August and started September -- and the final sprint to Election Day -- with a $141 million cash advantage over Trump and the Republican Party.

I wonder if the Trump administration's anti-science stance might have a little to do with it?

4. And they had to include the word "lopsided" because???

It just irks me to no end how vicious media corporations are, even when they don't have to be. The headline without that word says the same thing.

5. Chump is bad for business- these big tech companies know it

I'm going to go out on a limb here - I'm pretty sure that every Silicon Valley tech company employs people who came from foreign countries. And they hope to hire more immigrants as soon as the economy improves. These people are hip to what the world thinks of us, especially the Asians and the Europeans.

They are hip to how Chump has hurt our economy, our culture, our safety, our environment, our freedom, our democracy, etc. etc. Regardless of their political leanings - and many of them claim to be "Libertarians" - the Silicon Valley people know that Chump has to go!
