Bill de Blasio and the White Vote and Black Vote in 4 Maps


The New York Times has conveniently put up a fairly detailed map of voting results broken down by race. As usual, red is Republican and blue is Democrat.

The map of areas with at least a 50 percent white population shows a basic split between middle class and working class whites in Brooklyn and the elites in Manhattan.

Staten Island is obviously red, but so are parts of Queens, Brooklyn and even the Upper East Side in Manhattan, not to mention the white enclaves in the Bronx near Riverdale.

Joe Lhota decisively won the votes of Russian Jews in Brighton Beach, sometimes by margins as big as the ones by which Communist candidate Bill de Blasio won the overall vote. Unsurprisingly Red Bill did not have a lot of appeal in a community founded by emigres from the USSR.

He also won the votes of white Catholics and Orthodox Jews in the Flatbush area of Brooklyn and the working class white vote in Bay Ridge.

Breezy Point, home of former Republican congressman Bob Turner, who held Weiner’s old seat, and was hit hard by Hurricane Sandy, is bright red with Joe Lhota winning 86%. That’s also true of some of the white parts of Far Rockaway, including its large Jewish community, but the housing projects dumped near the beach come up blue.

The Upper East Side of Manhattan around Central Park as a good deal of red with Lhota scoring in the 70s. The same goes for parts of Battery Park. Those are wealthy areas.

On the other hand almost equally wealthy Yuckie strongholds in Park Slope and Greenwich Village turned out hard for their boy Bill de Blasio.

Looking at the map of black areas however gives us lots of hard blue and very little red or even light blue reflecting the monotonous character of the black bloc vote.

De Blasio’s vote is strongest in places like Harlem, East New York and Jamaica, the latter are basically miniature Detroits.

Much the same is true of the Hispanic vote.

A final map that it’s instructive to look at is the homeowner’s map. In its own way it also says all that there is to say about this election.

    If you look at the different district maps, they provide election results for different district groups. If you look at Manhattan Districts 71-76 (District 76 is where I live), readers will know that I am one of the 50 voters who voted for Joe Lhota yesterday. Unfortunately, my district, much like most of the city, voted for Warren Wilhelm, Jr. I am one of the few people from my district who voted for Lhota. Based on the election results, we, the Freedom Center, have a lot of work to do in order to support the poor and minority communities and to combat and defeat the left’s dangerous and monopolistic propaganda and agenda. But, with determination and perseverance, we can succeed one day soon.

      Please don’t ever give up, Omar! Freedom-lovers like you seem to be few and far between in the People’s Republic of New York!

    To heck with New York. They want a Third World city, they can have one.

    • Jakareh

      That’s a very myopic attitude. New York is America’s largest and wealthiest city and it should not be surrendered to the enemy. Once you do, the next thing you’ll say is, “If California wants to be a Third World state, let them.” Then it’s Florida, then it’s the rest of the West Coast, then it’s the whole East Coast, then it’s most of the Midwest, then it’s Texas, and then what are we left with? Maybe Utah and North Dakota. And they sure as heck can’t hold out by themselves. You can’t save yourself by cutting off a limb and throwing it to the wolves.

        Detroit used to be a large and prosperous city but a half century of leftist rule has turned it into a wasteland where you can’t even sell a house on eBay for $20.

        If you liked New York City in the Dinken days, you are in luck because that crime, filth and squalor is coming back. The only question is whether New Yorkers will blame bad luck or saboteurs, wreckers and the Tea Party – the same people they are blaming for the Obamacare fiasco.

          “If you liked New York City in the Dinken days, you are in luck because that crime, filth and squalor is coming back.”

          I don’t know what I said that led you to conclude I would ever support someone like David Dinkins.

            My apologies. The first paragraph was responding to you. The second paragraph was just me continuing to type and the “you” used was just a rhetorical term as in “If you like your insurance you can keep it”, not referring to any particular person (although in my example “you” does not refer to any real person at all).

            The point I was trying to make in that first paragraph was that just because New York is currently our largest and wealthiest city does not mean that it will continue that way if they keep making very bad decisions. You have probably seen the pictures of Detroit and Hiroshima in 1945 and today. Actually, the closest analogue to NYC that I can come up with is Constantinople. In its time it was the greatest city on earth but the people who lived there and the people who governed the place made bad decisions and they could not believe the consequences even as they were happening.

          • Jakareh

            I do see your point. My point is all of America is going the way of Detroit, though NYC will get there faster under the “leadership” of Bill De Blasio.

            Interesting that you mentioned Constantinople. Few people realize the Roman Empire only really fell in 1453, and to Muslims.

        Los Angeles is the wealthiest city in America. By far.

        • Jakareh

          That’s certainly not true statistically. In fact, the GDP of greater NYC is almost double that of greater LA. As far as per capita income, San Francisco–San Jose is first, NYC is second, and LA is way down the list at 43rd.

      So you want to give up ground, not fight for it.

      The French tried that.

  • Jakareh

    Only a property-owning, tax-paying head of a family*, aged 30 or over, should have the vote. That’s pretty much how the Founding Fathers intended it and they had more wisdom in one fingernail than all present-day politicians put together.

    Communists always do better with brainwashing the poor, ignorant, uneducated, unemployed “gimme” low-information voters. That’s why the Dems/Communists/Marxists want to KEEP these people in the situation they are in—a perpetual voting base! How sad.

  • DAVNRA

    You communist asked for him, not you you’ve got him. Enjoy!

    Because we all know that race has very little or nothing to do with anything boys and girls?
