More comments about the NYC election results map

View the map here.

In most of Manhattan, HRC got about 85% of the vote.

The wealthiest area of Manhattan, the Upper East Side between 5th Avenue and Park Avenue, where the richest investment bankers live, HRC only got about 75% of the vote. So the investment bankers are slightly more pro-Trump than the rest of the elites, but still, that’s overwhelming support for HRC. As I’ve been explaining, the rich vote Democratic, not Republican.

In the two wealthiest neighborhoods of Brooklyn, Brooklyn Heights and Park Slope, HRC got about 90% of the vote!

I’ve seen some articles in the nature “if only those journalists had talked to people in America’s heartland.” Well, actually, it wasn’t even as complicated as that. They didn’t even have to leave New York City. All they had to do was go to the south shore of Staten Island where Donald Trump got about 75% of the vote. The mainstream media, living only a ferry ride away from this strong base of Trump support, was clueless. If only they read my blog they would have known.

Of course the mainstream media was acting as HRC’s second campaign staff, so the last thing they would want to do is write articles about Trump’s support in Staten Island, thus creating social proof in favor of Trump.

    He’s still making repealing Dodd-Frank a top priority. Like an idiot.

    • Good. Dodd-Frank is a monstrosity. And he wants Glass-Steagall back in.

      Go away loser.

      • Well Glass Steagall would solve everything, but there’s no way he’ll get that through congress.

        Republicans would rather have sex with the mothers before going against Wall Street.

      • I have yet to see anyone explain how separating commercial and investment banking would have prevented the 08 crash.

        A firewall between investment banking, hedge fund operation, and brokerage services maybe.

        The idea of just reinstituting a nearly 100 year old law and calling it a day is beyond nuts.

        We were explaining to you for 12 months how Trump was going to win and you were too pigheaded to see it. This would be no different.

  2. In the last 100 years, only one other president lost his home state but won the election: Richard Nixon, in 1968. Like Trump, Nixon was also a resident of New York state.

    • Trump won by a landslide among New Yorkers who lived in New York state the year he was born. Probably something like 70 to 30. Can you imagine being lucky enough to be born in New York state in the 50s or 60s or before and being cold-hearted enough in 2016 to vote for pro-abortion and selfish and angry on so many levels Hillary?
      “the wish to pray is a prayer in itself” Bernanos. Remember he is a very flawed 70 year old guy who says he is sorry for what he did wrong in the past – has she apologized for what she did in the past?

  3. Trump got the Orthodox (Williamsburg, South Central Flushing, Central Brooklyn, Belle Harbor/Rockaway/Neponsit) and ethnic (Syrian Jews out in Brooklyn) Jewish vote. Trump also got what is left of the other ethnic white proles (Guidos and Irish). Excepting Staten Island, White proles have been pretty much driven out of New York City.

    • Lion thinks Jews who live in Kew Gardens are proles. Yes, but they are a better breed than the run in the mill, rumble and grumble Jews who live in the prole areas of Brooklyn. Jews who live in Queens are good representatives of what one calls the normal middle class.

      White proles are still strong in areas in like Maspeth and Forest Hills (if you think they aren’t SWPL enough). I would also include Kew Gardens, where Prole Jews live alongside the Italians and Irish.

      Essentially, Queens has a better group of proles than that of Brooklyn and Staten Island.

      Queens is still very much this, despite all of the Latin, Curry and Asiatic invaders:


      November 11, 2016 at 12:42 am

      • Maspeth, Middle Village, Glendale, and Ridgewood are white prole holdouts. They will be white prole for a long time to come. Proles are are also clinging to Whitestone, College Point and eastern Bayside.


        November 11, 2016 at 2:57 pm

      • That’s correct. Queens’ proles are a hodge podge of Irish, Italian, German, Balkan, also Jews, who are the remnants of the true White middle class in NYC. Brooklyn proles are mostly Jews (old and new), with Italians coming in second. I hate Brooklyn and most of its people, who often come across as striving, ostentatious, and wished they were Manhattanites.


        November 11, 2016 at 8:01 pm

      • I would consider Jamaica Estates prole, but sort of the upper middle class territory. It’s Trump’s childhood place.

  4. Hilarious. There is one anomaly in the South Bronx, showing up red on the map. If you zoom in and click on the district it reveals that Trump got 50% and Hillary got 50%, but only two people in the entire district showed up to vote, one for Trump, one for Clinton. The district’s creation is most likely due to some corrupt Puerto Rican politician up there who has stuffed a bunch of family into no show, or barely show city/state jobs.

  5. Yes sir, you are correct again and again, it’s usually the upper middle class and above, who vote Democratic.

    I saw a segment on public television where they had 3 individuals from the media who were also representatives of the 3 main White ethnic groups found in the northeast. A Jewish editor from the NY Times, who represents the elite, a guido talk show host based out in the midwest and a nice woman with an Irish surname. By far, the guido as always, in overdrive, came across as a reactionary with a lot of hot air, complaining about the media ignoring the plight of the “proles” in middle america. The Jew who is more intelligent, said “well it’s not a regional thing, but a psychological state of mind…just look no further to Staten and Long Island not too far where I am at in Manhattan, where many of their residents have been ignored by everyone”. The affable lady with the Irish surname just smiled and said our politicians have forgotten the White working class.

    • The Irish, Slavs and Italians are much more immune to the SJW rubbish than Jews and Germanic whites.

      • The Jews are more successful. Many Jews are elitists so they think and act differently.

        When you reside in a penthouse on Madison Avenue, your thoughts are different from a prole who lives in peasantville.

      • I’m very cautious to even feel goodabout Trump. He’s another Manhattan elitist, and they all have their agendas that usually doesn’t benefit the average chump on the street.

  6. Idiot thugs protesting Trump attacked a man walking his dog in midtown Manhattan; Threw bottles and kicked the dog.


    November 11, 2016 at 12:52 am

    • If you are smart to realize that the dog owner is likely to live in Manhattan and voted for Hillary.

      Money dictates the nation with an iron fist and nothing else. Identity politics whether the Trump camp with proles and Hillary with her SJWs and NAMs are secondary distractions.
