San Francisco Chronicle: Tech voting bloc in SF? Not yet

San Francisco Chronicle: Tech voting bloc in SF? Not yet | USF Leo T. McCarthy Center for Public Service and the Common Good | Scoop.it

Tech moguls and venture capitalists influence San Francisco politics through major political donations, but as of now they don’t have an army of like-minded foot soldiers of tech workers — a “tech voting bloc” — backing them up.
 

Those are among the preliminary findings of University of San Francisco political science Professor Corey Cook, who’s researching whether tech workers have formed a significant political alliance that could reshape San Francisco. 
 

Cook’s early answer: They have not. While the thousands of young, highly skilled workers who have flocked to San Francisco for high-paying jobs have helped to jack up the price of real estate and restaurant meals, they haven’t coalesced into a political force. Yet. [via @sfchronicle]

...

“The assumption is that because a handful of folks are getting involved in politics, the people that work for them will have the same interests or vote the same way,” Cook said. “That’s not at all clear yet.” 


“Tech may never develop as a tech bloc vote in San Francisco,” he said. “We’re trying to see if it does.”

"Brown can pretty much pick and choose whatever he wants to do -- he's got all the political capital he needs from the voters," Latterman said. "He'll check some of the more shocking ideas that might come from the left, and voters expect him to do that."  [via Contra Costa Times]
