A recent post by the NY Times outlined the geographic breakdown of political contributions to both Biden and Trump, acknowledging Upper West Side zip code 10024 as contributing more than $8 million to Joe Biden’s campaign since April.
NYC donated a total of $85.6 million to Biden’s campaign, and the Democratic candidate has raised a total of $1.07 billion since this period began.
The analysis reviewed a total of $1.8 billion donated by 7.6 million people.
“Mr. Biden’s hauls are particularly concentrated in big cities and suburbs. One Upper West Side ZIP code — 10024 — accounted for more than $8 million for Mr. Biden, and New York City in total delivered $85.6 million for him — more than he raised in every state other than California.”
The NY Times’ study includes an interactive map which breaks down donations by zip codes around the country, emphasizing the support Biden has received from the coasts. The study also states that Massachusetts is “The most lopsided state in Mr. Biden’s favor,” with Democrats raising $55.7 million, more than five times as much as Republicans received.
The study also states that “Mr. Trump’s greatest edge came from Texas,” where he netted $48.3 million more than Biden.
The study also displays landmark fundraising days for both candidates, as well as amounts raised based on median incomes and education levels.
