Why is this not surprising?

Pew surveyed more than 2,500 scientists, conducted in collaboration with the American Association for the Advancement of Science. The survey found that more than half (55%) of the scientists identified themselves as Democrats, and nearly as many (52%) call themselves liberal. What's more, "Many of the scientists surveyed mentioned in their open-ended comments that they were optimistic about the Obama administration's likely impact on science.

Only 9% of the scientists, meanwhile, consider themselves conservative, while fewer still (6%) identified themselves as Republicans.

Gee, I don't suppose that could be because today's GOP doesn't believe in evolution or global warming and is dominated by a bunch of bible-thumping holy-rollers could it?
