Tech industry workers in Silicon Valley favor Hillary Clinton over Bernie Sanders in the Democratic primary, according to new data.

The Hill examined Federal Election Commission numbers and found that employees at some of the biggest tech firms in Silicon Valley, California, have donated more money to Clinton.

Google workers, for example, have given more than $512,497, 51 percent of which went to Clinton. At Apple, 56 percent of the $143,868 donated to the two candidates has gone to the former secretary of state.

Workers at HP (86 percent) and Facebook (83 percent) have donated the highest percentage of money to Clinton over Sanders, reports The Hill.

Of the nine companies listed in the report, Uber is the only one whose employees have given Sanders more money — 62 percent of $16,449. That figure does not include Uber drivers.

According to the Center for Responsive Politics, Clinton has collected $1,176,758 from the internet industry, compared to $779,590 for Sanders.

Overall, however, CNN reports the tech industry as a whole has donated $6 million to Sanders — more than twice the amount given to Clinton.

Clinton became the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Monday night. Six states are holding Democratic primaries Tuesday, including California.
