The upcoming presidential election will be a historic one for many reasons, not the least of which being the current COVID-19 pandemic. Many states are opting for mail-in ballots, with some sending mail-in options to every registered voter because of the health crisis. Political analysts believe that the voter turnout may be higher this year than in previous years, solely due to the accessibility of a mail-in vote versus voting in person.

In addition to the mail-in option now available in most states—and available for the first time in some states—many states that went red in 2016 are now projected to turn blue. National polling released Sept. 28 showed Biden commanding a solid, 8-point lead over Trump nationally. Interestingly, while both Biden and Trump have similar numbers of donations overall, Biden received more money from his top 50 zip codes. For example, Biden’s top zip code is 20815 in Chevy Chase, Maryland, raising about $1,031,110 over the past two years. In the same period, Trump’s top zip code—33480 in Palm Beach, Florida—raised $479,428. Still, if 2016 taught pollsters or political pundits anything, it’s not to cast predictions too assuredly ahead of election day.

Stacker analyzed Federal Election Commission (FEC) records from Jan. 1, 2019 to July 31, 2020, to compile a list of 50 zip codes that have donated the most money to Trump over the past two years. Each zip code is ranked by its total donation amount to the Donald J. Trump for President, Inc. campaign committee.

Only FEC-processed records from unique individuals, as opposed to outside groups or committees, were considered. The list also include the number of donations made toward Trump’s campaign in that zip code, the total state donations, and some additional details about those areas’ residents.

The 2020 presidential election is rapidly approaching, with both Democratic challenger Joe Biden and Republican incumbent President Donald J. Trump fighting for every available campaign dollar. Each candidate has received total contributions in the neighborhood of $1 billion.

To find out which of the country’s 42,000 zip codes have donated the most money to Joe Biden over the past two years, Stacker analyzed Federal Election Commission records from Jan. 1, 2019-July 31, 2020, released in August, to compile a list of the top 50.

The top 50 zip codes that have been most generous toward the Biden for President campaign span nine states, although 14 were contained within the island of Manhattan alone. One of the island’s wealthiest zip codes supported Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election to the tune of 86% of the popular vote, although one of that zip code’s richest enclaves, Lincoln Square, saw Trump garner 33%.

California boasts 13 spots in the top 50, including perhaps the country’s most famous zip code. A hit television show in the early 1990s made those five digits a household name, and today’s residents have given more than $400 per donation to the Biden campaign.

While the White House has a zip code all to itself, seven surrounding zips in the nation’s capital are among Biden’s largest contributors. A nearby Maryland community, which also carries a famous Hollywood name, tops the list as the only seven-figure contributor.
