Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, a Democrat, is claiming that support for the Hollywood-backed Protect IP copyright bill is bipartisan. That's narrowly true.

But I ran the numbers and it's not not exactly an even split: over 60 percent of the supporters are Dems. (Even if you adjust for the fact that the Democrats have a slight Senate majority, the support still comes disproportionately from one party.)

Here's the list of 25 Ds and 16 Rs who have endorsed Protect IP by signing on as a sponsor:

* Bennet, Michael F. - (D - CO)
* Bingaman, Jeff - (D - NM) 2012
* Blumenthal, Richard - (D - CT)
* Boxer, Barbara - (D - CA)
* Brown, Sherrod - (D - OH) 2012
* Cardin, Benjamin L. - (D - MD) 2012
* Casey, Robert P., Jr. - (D - PA) 2012
* Coons, Christopher A. - (D - DE)
* Durbin, Richard J. - (D - IL)
* Feinstein, Dianne - (D - CA) 2012
* Franken, Al - (D - MN)
* Gillibrand, Kirsten E. - (D - NY) 2012
* Hagan, Kay R. - (D - NC)
* Johnson, Tim - (D - SD)
* Klobuchar, Amy - (D - MN) 2012
* Kohl, Herb - (D - WI) 2012
* Landrieu, Mary L. - (D - LA)
* Leahy, Patrick J. - (D - VT)
* Lieberman, Joseph I. - (ID - CT) 2012

* Schumer, Charles E. - (D - NY)
* Shaheen, Jeanne - (D - NH)
* Udall, Tom - (D - NM)
* Whitehouse, Sheldon - (D - RI) 2012

Republicans:
* Alexander, Lamar - (R - TN)
* Ayotte, Kelly - (R - NH)
* Blunt, Roy - (R - MO)
* Boozman, John - (R - AR)
* Chambliss, Saxby - (R - GA)
* Cochran, Thad - (R - MS)
* Corker, Bob - (R - TN) 2012
* Enzi, Michael B. - (R - WY)
* Graham, Lindsey - (R - SC)
* Grassley, Chuck - (R - IA)
* Hatch, Orrin G. - (R - UT) 2012

* McCain, John - (R - AZ)
* Risch, James E. - (R - ID)
* Rubio, Marco - (R - FL)
* Vitter, David - (R - LA)


I'm listing Sen. Lieberman as a D because he caucuses with the Democrats. If there's a "2012" appended, that means the senator is up for reelection next year. (Opponents of Protect IP and SOPA, take note!)
