Leo laments that the survey didn’t ask if they felt entitled to use the classroom as a political stage to propound their beliefs to students, but maybe we get a reasonable approximation of that from the above figure.

George Leef is the the director of editorial content at the James G. Martin Center for Academic Renewal.
