    Google, Marriott, UPS Pick Sides in 2012 Election - ABC News

    From Google to Marriott and Dreamworks Animation to the United Parcel Service, some of the largest companies in the country are forking over big bucks to support candidates, occasionally leaning heavily to one side of the political aisle.

    The United Parcel Service, or UPS, has so far doled out $1.2 million in the 2012 election, about 70 percent of which went to Republicans or conservative groups, according to disclosure data compiled by the Center for Responsive Politics. Goldman Sachs, Marriott International and The Home Depot have also disproportionately supported Republicans.

    But while the majority of the political contributions UPS's political action committee gave supported the GOP, the companies employees have given more than $10,000 to President Obama and a similar amount to Democratic Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., the center's data shows.

    I think it`s a no brainer that most of their contributions will be going to the GOP.
