LOL, where did you find that definition? Almost all "people at the top" are liberals.

Really? How many of the Fortune 400 are political liberals...three?...four?

You might like to look at some demographic studies ... "Liberal with others peoples money..." Conservatives are an entirely different kind of idiot.

Thelist one gets from Google <https://www.google.com/#hl=en&sclient=psy-ab&q=fortune+400+list+political+affiliation&oq=fortune+400+list+political+affiliation&gs_l=hp.3...1278.9221.2.9395.,or.r_gc.r_pw.r_cp.r_qf.&fp=f984dbbd36939e42&biw=1527&bih=812> is difficult to get hard numbers from.

It seems that both of our individual claims are wrong by this thread: http://answers.google.com/answers/threadview/id/253572.html

Hello Gordoncitizen,

In response to your clarification that you wished to accept my
findings as the answer to your question, I am providing the following
information to you.

The name and source of the publication is:

The Myth of Old Money Liberalism: The Politics of the Forbes 400
Richest Americans
University of Oregon

Here is the data:

Political Partisanship of New Rich and Old Rich

New Rich

Democrat              9%
Strong Democrat      20%
Republican           16%
Strong Republican    36%
Bipartisan           19%

Old Rich

Democrat               6%
Strong Democrat       13%
Republican               10%
Strong Republican     59%
Bipartisan            12%

The above data is on page 8 - Figure 2
University of Oregon

On page 7 - Figure 1, you will find the bar chart illustrating the
Mean Percentage of Contributions to Republicans and Democrats.

"New Rich were defined as those whose parents did not have substantial
wealth or own a business worth more than $1 million."

"Rising Rich were defined as those who inherited small businesses or
wealth worth more than $1 million, but insufficient to place them on
the Forbes list without a significant increase in their wealth during
their lifetimes (usually a result of their success in building a small
business into a large corporation)."

"Old Rich were defined as those who were born into wealth sufficient
to place them on the Forbes 400 list."
