I want to ask an organization:
Does your organization have any sympathies __ [such and such ideology (X)].
Which preposition should follow “sympathies?”
I was thinking “to” might work, as if their sympathies are poised in the direction of X. But “for” could work also, as if they have sympathies stored up and reserved for X.
Please help with this particular instance and also help in how to think through similar instances would be much appreciated.
Consider towards, instead. Or toward in US.
Does your organization have any sympathies towards (such and such ideologies)?
You’ll find many examples for such usage on Google
