no, I don't mean the field of study, political science, I'm referring to hard scientists that are politically engaged/interested. How many are there? Most of my scientific community isn't really interested much at all in politics. There are couple, but they're kind of nutty (or maybe this is just my opinion based on my aversion to politics). Anyway, how many of physicsforums hard scientists are politically engaged? Is this stereotypical of scientists to not like politics? Why do you think?
