How the 1% Voted in the 2016 Presidential Election: 2 to 1 for Clinton

How the 1% Voted in the 2016 Presidential Election: 2 to 1 for Clinton

The recent New York Times interactive map of all voting precincts in the United States allowed me to investigate how 300 of the highest income places voted in the 2016 Presidential Election. (An Extremely Detailed Map of the 2016 Election, July 25, 2018, Matthew Block, Larry Buchanan, Josh Katz, and Kevin Quealy).  I used the 2016 American Community Survey (ACS) to ascertain the 200 cities, towns, and townships with the highest mean household income. Not surprisingly, they were all suburbs… very affluent suburbs as #200, Chester Township in central New Jersey had a mean household income of $210,107. In order to give balance to this list of the affluent, I added a separate group of 100 of the most high income neighborhoods in central cities. The 300 places and neighborhoods gave Clinton just over a 2-1 margin (66.9% for Clinton; 33.1% for Trump).

It is particularly difficult to  survey the highest income householders (the 1%). After all, it’s highly unlikely they’d answer their phones and immediately start discussing as to whether they were part of the 1%. The wealthy certainly are not going to discuss their finances with a stranger on the phone. The best way to find out how they voted is to use the passive methodology of researching the geography of the 1%. My list of three hundred places and neighborhoods had a vote total of 1,456,141. The total Clinton/Trump vote was 128,838,341. The 300 places I have researched represent 1.13% of the total American vote. The sample included 827,252 voters in the suburbs and 628,889 voters in central cities.

Using ACS data, each city, town, village or township in this research must have had a minimum population of 1,000 to be included on the list. Eighty-nine of the 300 places come from the New York City area. The reason for this is twofold: there is an exceptional amount of income enjoyed by the 23 million people in New York City’s metro area. Secondly, many parts of Greater New York area are politically and geographically splintered into myriads of small estate villages on the North Shore of Long Island. The township system of New Jersey is also divided into a large number of townships. Second place California has 53 towns and neighborhoods represented in the list of 300 combined cities and suburbs.

Of the 200 highest income suburban places, 123 voted for Clinton, and 77 for Trump. That broke down to a suburban vote advantage for Clinton of 59.5%  vs. Trump’s 40.5%.  (Please note that all percentages show the split between Clinton and Trump. I have not included votes for Stein or Johnson for statistical clarity.)

The 100 urban neighborhoods provided Hillary Clinton with a huge victory as she overwhelmed Trump by a 76.7% to 23.3% margin. The margins of Clinton’s victory were truly a rout in many neighborhoods. Capitol Hill in Seattle is tied with Hyde Park in Chicago for the highest Clinton vote percentage. Each neighborhood voted for Clinton with a 96% to 4% advantage. Clinton took 40 of the 100 urban neighborhoods with over 80% of the vote. Only 4 Trump urban neighborhoods gave him more that 70% of the vote.

The urban areas were chosen by the author based on previous research. New York City has 14 urban neighborhoods on the list. Eight are located in Manhattan (the Upper East Side, the Upper West Side, Greenwich Village, Sutton Place, Soho, Tribeca, Beekman Place and Battery City). Brooklyn Heights, Park Slope, and Williamsburg represented Brooklyn whereas Queens was represented by Douglas Manor and Neponsit-Belle Harbor (63.5% Trump). The Todt Hill neighborhood (65.7% Trump) represented Staten Island.

For the Upper East Side, I tallied the precincts that followed 5th Avenue and Park Avenue from 60th to 96th street. These are the richest precincts and those to the east provided Clinton with an even higher percentage of the vote. Similarly, I counted the precincts between Central Park West and Amsterdam from 60th to 96th street. I went out of my way to find high income urban neighborhoods that are often overlooked. (e.g. Hayes Barton in Raleigh, Forest Park in Birmingham, and Arcadia in Phoenix).

Clinton’s heavy advantage in high income places and neighborhoods is due to the fact that she not only won 198 out of the 300 places surveyed, her victories were often landslides. Trump’s 102 wins were either close or modest victories with very few landslides.

Table A: Clinton’s 10 best Suburbs or Neighborhoods

Nine of Clinton’s 10 best neighborhoods were in central cities. Suburban Mill Valley in San Francisco’s Marin County sneaked in at 10th place giving Clinton 91.1% of its vote. Two of Clinton’s top ten neighborhoods are predominately African-American (Forest Hills in Washington DC and Palmer Woods in Detroit). Four of Clinton’s best neighborhoods were located in New York City: Greenwich Village (including the West Village) and Soho. Across the East River in Brooklyn, Park Slope gave 94.6% of its vote to Clinton, just slightly more than Brooklyn Heights (93.1% Clinton).  Brooklyn’s gentrified Williamsburg gave Hillary Clinton a 88.6% to 11.4% margin.

Table B: Trump’s 10 best Suburbs or Neighborhoods

Trump’s best neighborhoods were all suburban. Although four of his best places were in central cities, they were essentially suburban in terms of density and land use. The Country Club-Llanfair neighborhood in Mobile, Alabama is hardly “urban” by anyone’s standards as it is made up of large homes in suburban subdivisions. Ortega is a well established elite neighborhood on the western bank of the St. Johns River in Jacksonville, Florida. Similarly, Pierremont is a well established affluent neighborhood in Shreveport, Louisiana. The Gaillardia Country Club in Oklahoma City is on the outskirts of OKC’s expansive city limits. Although technically in the “central city,” Gaillardia is  a community of McMansions built around a golf course in a typical suburban manner. Trump did extremely well in all six of the villages that make up an enclave of Houston along the Buffalo Bayou.

Two unusual places in Trump’s winning coalition are Lawrence, New York and Grosse Pointe Shores, Michigan. Lawrence has a heavy population of Orthodox Jewish people and the vote in Lawrence went 76.4% for Trump. Another high income Orthodox Jewish NYC suburb was Kings Point that gave Trump 69% of its vote and just missed Trump’s top ten.

Eight Takeaways from Analyzing How the Highest Income Communities voted:

1. Old Money vs. New Money:  In general, Trump did better amongst the nouveau riche and Clinton did better with Old Money. For instance, the North Shore suburbs of Chicago (old money) tended to vote heavily Clinton (Winnetka +32%; Glencoe +59%; Kenilworth +13%), whereas Trump won handily in newer suburbs populated by McMansions (Oak Brook +14% Trump; South Barrington +13%, Long Grove + 6%). Lake Forest, Chicago’s premiere upper class suburb has always been the most conservative of the North Shore suburbs. Lake Forest went for Trump 51.7% to 48.3%. Of course there are always exceptions. I am curious as to how the old money, Henry Ford suburb of Grosse Pointe Shores gave Trump a whopping 41 point advantage (70.7% vs 29.3%).  Going strongly against the California trend, the newish suburb of Coto de Caza in Orange County voted 2-1 for Trump.

2. The Bastion of Clinton: Silicon Valley and the Bay Area:  Seven of the top ten places that voted most heavily for Clinton are found in the Bay Area. This pattern is consistent across the entire metro area. Mill Valley in Marin Country had an astounding spread of 82 points in Clinton’s favor. Following closely behind Mill Valley are Ladera (+76%), a small unincorporated suburb adjacent to Palo Alto; Piedmont (+76%) and old money suburb of Oakland, West Menlo Park (+75%), an unincorporated Silicon Valley place and Kentfield (+69%), an example of old money in Marin County. The most conservative  area of Greater San Francisco was the nouveau riche suburb of Black Hawk on the urban fringe in Contra Costa County. Trump lost Black Hawk by 9.6%… his best showing in the Bay area.

3. Urban neighborhoods in our central cities tend to have extremely different density patterns. From the canyons of the Upper East Side in Manhattan to the spacious giant mansions on large acreages in Bel Air (Estates) in Los Angeles, it is difficult to generalize about urban neighborhoods. The number of high income/high density urban neighborhoods outside of New York City and San Francisco is limited. Wherever they are found, they tended to vote heavily for Clinton. Examples would be Chicago’s Gold Coast (Clinton 76.3%), Miami’s Brickell Avenue (Clinton 69.6%), and Rittenhouse Square in Philadelphia (Clinton 85.3%).

4. The Bastion of Trump: Texas. With a few exceptions, Trump stormed through the wealthy suburbs and urban neighborhoods of Texas. Westlake, a tiny suburb of 1,124 people just north of Fort Worth, with the third highest mean income in the country ($403,288), gave their vote to Trump by a huge margin (77.4% to 22.6%). Westlake is a classic nouveau riche community that consists of a gated country club, The Vaquero Club and a series of large acreage homes/ranches. Much more important than tiny Westlake is nearby Southlake, a large Fort Worth suburb voted 2-1 for Trump. Southlake is classic nouveau riche: endless tracks of identical McMansions.

Old money Highland Park and University Park surrounded by Dallas voted for Trump by +16% and +36% respectively. Adjacent Preston Hollow, home to George W. Bush gave Trump a +20 advantage. Trump also did extremely well in Houston’s exclusive Buffalo Bayou area. There are six individually incorporated suburbs in this area and their vote for Trump was among his best showings across the country. The three highest income Buffalo Bayou suburbs were Hunters Creek Village (Trump +39%), Piney Pointe Village (+41%), and, Bunker Hill Village (+36%).

Just five high income Texas places voted for Clinton. Three were adjacent to each other near Rice University (West University Place +13% Clinton; Belleair +8% Clinton; and tiny Southside Place, + 13%). Relatively liberal, Austin’s older suburbs of West Lake Hills and Rollingwood went to Clinton by 22 and 25 points respectively. Two of Austin’s older city neighborhoods went strongly for Clinton: Tarrytown (+51%) and in Old West Austin (+37%).

5. The Long Island/Westchester split: There are 28 suburbs on Long Island among the 200 highest income places on the list and it is here that one will find some rare East Coast wealthy suburbs that supported Trump. Many of these places were formerly known as golf/estate villages as they were incorporated by estate owners to evade Nassau taxes at the beginning of the 20th Century. The 600 estates of the Gilded Age are largely gone or repurposed; however, the combined grounds have been turned into a 132 square mile collection of beautiful homes and modern, albeit smaller estates. Although the estates of Long Island were originally the home to the WASP elite, they are hard to find these days. In fact, the top ethnic groups found in these estate villages are universally Irish and Italian. The former servants and the landscapers have taken over the estates! Examples of the Long Island communities that went with Trump include Lattingtown (+17% Trump), Old Brookville (+31%), Nissequogue (+30%); and Head of the Harbor (+25%).

Note that Long Island seemed to have a large split on their hands as Clinton did exceptionally well in many of Long Island’s communities.  Posh Sands Point gave Clinton a 26 point advantage. Other Clinton strongholds included Lake Success (+27%), East Hills (+39%), and Lido Beach (+20%).

On the other hand, Clinton won all 14 Westchester suburbs. Clinton’s advantage in suburb after suburb was towering. She won Larchmont by 61 percentage points, Scarsdale by 60 points, and her home town, Chappaqua by 56 points. Trump has a home in Bedford and here he didn’t do as well as in Palm Beach. He lost Bedford by 35 points. Other large Westchester towns show a definite trend with Rye voting for Clinton by a 2-1 margin and elegant Bronxville gave her a 15 point margin.

6. The Jewish vote. Again, we can split the vote in two. Most American Jewish people are either of the Conservative or Reformed traditions and they tend to vote heavily Democratic. Examples of this are Chicago’s North Shore Glencoe (+60% Clinton), Franklin, MI (+24%),  and two of the four “Roslyns” on Long Island. Roslyn Estates (+37%) and Roslyn Harbor (+22%) were both Clinton strongholds. One of the plushest places in the country with a significant Jewish population is Westchester’s Scarsdale, that voted overwhelmingly for Clinton by a 79.2% to 20.8% margin.

The Orthodox Jewish vote could not be more different from their Conservative and Reformed traditions voted. Two of the highest income suburbs in the country that are dominated by Orthodox Jewish people gave huge margins to Donald Trump. As mentioned above, Lawrence, in the Five Towns neighborhood voted 76.4% to 23.6% for Trump. The other New York City suburb is Kings Point on Long Island Sound. Kings Point, located in the Great Neck area voted for Trump by a 69% to 31% margin.

7. Resort-like communities: The few tended to vote for Trump. North Key Largo in the Florida Keys voted heavily for Trump (72.3% – 27.7%) and Kiawah Island, South Carolina also strongly favored Trump (65.4% to 34.6%). One of Trump’s hometowns, Palm Beach gave him a comfortable margin (55.3% to 44.7%).

8. Interesting observations and outliers: Connecticut’s Gold Coast on Long Island Sound consists 10 towns that voted unanimously for Clinton. Artsy Westport maintains its distinction as the most liberal place in southwestern Connecticut, giving Clinton a 44 point advantage. Clinton’s advantage dropped to 10 points in the estates of North Greenwich and 12 points in New Canaan.

The richest “town” in the United States is Indian Creek, an island town in Miami’s Biscayne Bay. There are 33 mansions and 92 people surrounding a golf course that live on this gilded island. Although the statistics are notoriously inaccurate in such a small place, the 2016 American Community Survey gave Indian Creek a mean household income of $727,189. Trump carried Indian Creek 2016.

The second richest community in the United States is Jupiter Island, Florida. Located just north of Palm Beach, Jupiter Island was not included in my research as it did not make the requisite population of 1,000. This slender barrier island had a mean income of $533,275— and they voted decisively for Trump by a 334-171 margin. Although not one of the 200 wealthiest towns, Of interest is Beverly Hills that voted 10,547 for  Clinton and 5,439 for Trump… that’s a 66% to 34% spread.  This is impressive, but not by the standards of nearby neighborhoods. Clinton took Bel Air by 42 points and Brentwood, Westwood, and Holmby Hills by an identical 53 percentage points each.

There were several places that voted right down the middle, half for Clinton, half for Trump. Among these divided communities are Denver’s most elite place, Cherry Hills Village; Hinsdale, Illinois (a teardown heaven just west of Chicago), as well as Mission Hills in the Kansas City area, Ladue, MO (St. Louis), and New Albany OH (Columbus). The town that broke the closest among the 200 is Muttontown, a uniquely named suburb in the Oyster Bay area of Northern Long Island.

It should be noted that some of the wealthiest suburban places were left off the list because precinct boundaries roped in large areas of lower income neighbors: Oyster Bay Cove, NY; Druid Hills, GA; East Hampton, NY; and Woodside, an unincorporated place in Bucks County outside of Philadelphia.
