While both democrats and Republicans have their friends across silicon valley start ups as well across corporate America.This is the first time we have precise data on which are those corporations and how much do they donate to politicians of both sides of the divide FindTheCompany and InsideGov teamed up to analyze data from the Center for Responsive Politics to see where America’s biggest corporations stand.
Specifically the data in the chart shows the  political donations from 2002 to 2015, then color-coded the results in the chart below.

The chart show  totals include money from individual employees, company-owned political action committees and, in some cases, the treasury of the company itself. The chart does not include “dark money,” which is funneled through nonprofits that aren’t required to report key details publicly

The number 1 in the list Las Vegas sands donates 100% of their donations exclusively to the Conservatives ( Republicans). American Financial Group ,Walmart Stores, Exxon Mobile, Union Pacific Corp and Fedex are some of them who donate a substantial part of their political funding to the Republican Party.

The only exception in the list who has donated entire corporate political budget  to conservatives was Las Vegas Sands .Its the company that owns American casino and resort company that owns The Venetian and The Palazzo, among many other properties. Since 2002, Las Vegas Sands has contributed more money than any other public U.S. company, and 99 percent of that money has gone to Republicans and conservatives.(source )
