Submission + - Tech bets on Obama (computerworld.com)

dcblogs writes: The tech industry's 2012 campaign donations show a clear preference for President Barack Obama, and industry executives believe he will win reelection, according to a new survey. Obama has raised $5.07 million from the tech sector, with campaign donations coming from political action committees at tech firms, employees and even immediate families. Donors associated with Microsoft contributed $544,445; those related to Google, $526,000; and IBM-related contributions totalled $218,800, according to data collected by the Center for Responsive Politics. Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney has received just over $2 million from the tech industry, with EMC Corp.-related donors contributing the largest chunk: $257,250. In a survey of 222 C-level executives at tech firms, law firm DLA Piper found that 76% believe Obama will win the Nov. 6 election, with the balance, 24%, predicting a win for Romney. DLA believes the survey reflects preference as well.
