(BuzzFeed) Employees from 20 of the nation’s largest and most influential technology companies have donated approximately $4.4 million to the Clinton campaign this election, roughly thirty times as much they’ve given to Trump’s campaign, according to a BuzzFeed News analysis of Federal Election Commission data.
The twenty companies BuzzFeed News examined included popular social networks like Twitter and Facebook, incumbent manufacturing giants Dell and Hewlett Packard, and multinational heavyweights Amazon, Intel, Oracle, and Uber. In total, workers for the 20 companies gave about $4.4 million in itemized contributions to Clinton and $146,000 to Trump.
Staffers at Google and its parent company Alphabet topped the list at more than $1.1 million donated to the Clinton campaign through September, either directly to Hillary for America or via other “authorized” committees. Clinton’s operation appears to have received more contributions from Google employees than any other employer, in or out of tech. Employees from Apple, Microsoft, Facebook, IBM, and Salesforce have also been among Clinton’s top financial backers.
