How Every New York City Neighborhood Voted

By now you must have spent the last 24 hours on the moon to not know that Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump each won decisive victories in yesterday’s New York primaries.

With 99% of the precincts reported, Clinton got 58% of the vote compared to Sanders 42%. This 16%-lead means she received 39 delegates more than her opponent, which leaves Sanders little possibility to still win the nomination.

Trump scored even bigger, he got 64.8%  and almost all of the 95 Republican delegates up for grabs – 89. John Kasich came in a distant second, with 25.1% and 4 delegates. Ted Cruz – who refused to apologize for his New York Values comments – did not receive a single delegate, because he failed to meet the 20% threshold.

If you want to get all this in more detail, the New York Times created an awesome feature, where you can look up every single neighborhood in New York City.

As you can see, Hillary won large patches of Brooklyn, which shows that having the loudest supporters doesn’t necessarily mean you have the most.

My favorite example on the Republican side: Donald Trump won Trump Tower and the couple of Fifth Avenue blocks around it.
