Is your neighborhood with her or with him?

RentHop, a New York-based data-driven real estate startup, conducted a study of candidate support within ZIP codes across the five boroughs. Using data provided by the Federal Election Commission in its most recent disclosure report dated Sep. 21, RentHop gauged support for presidential candidates based on each candidate’s number of unique donors within each neighborhood.

According to the study, Queens appears to have the closest contest between candidates in all five boroughs: 2,063 unique donors supported Hillary Clinton and 929 supported Donald Trump.

Clinton has 100 percent of donor shares in Rosedale (ZIP code 11422) and over 75 percent in Jackson Heights (11372) and Kew Gardens (11415).

Trump has 100 percent of donor shares in Breezy Point (11697) and over 75 percent in Middle Village (11379) and Howard Beach (11414).

There are more than a few areas where where neither Clinton nor Trump have more than 55 percent of the donors and voters appear to be split. Donor share numbers in Glendale and Ridgewood (11385) and Woodhaven (11421) show Clinton with a slight advantage over Trump, while Trump appears to have a slight advantage over Clinton in the areas of Fresh Meadows (11366), Bellerose (11426), Glen Oaks (11004), Floral Park (11001), Whitestone (11357) and Bayside (11361).

As for unique donations from Queens residents to third party candidates, 10 unique donors supported Jill Stein while five supported Gary Johnson.
