: PhD's also have a tendency of lining up with the political affiliations of the college or other institution they profess at. And most colleges tend to drift on the liberal side.

Most universities are left-leaning because their educators hold liberal views, not the other way around as you suggest. Liberals don't attend university, rather, university students are more liberal than the average populace. Your fallacy is that you presuppose liberalism or conservatism without looking at WHY a person is of that mindset. Conservative or liberal, those are symptoms, not a cause.
