Look, we get it. We're all a little snoopy, and we're all probably a little bit curious to know whether or not we live in a neighborhood that's #FeelinTheBern or #WithHer. Lucky for us nosy neighbors, the data scientists at Renthop combed through volumes of campaign contribution information from the Federal Elections Commission and created the interactive map below. With ease, you can click across ZIP codes all throughout Los Angeles County (and the rest of Southern California) and see just how many people gave how much money to whoever candidate. Here's a little breakdown of what the numbers reveal:

  • 90210, perhaps the country's most famous ZIP code, had a lot of money to give to the candidates—especially Hillary. Of the just-over $1 million in campaign contributions from the Beverly Hills ZIP code, Clinton received 51.7 percent of the pot.
  • Not surprisingly, the Hills are for Hillary. Hefty donations from well-monied Dems perched high-above the basin catapult Hillary ahead of other candidates, from the Palisades all the way through Hollywood Hills.
  • Hillary's support falls off into the hipster paradise that transplants like to call L.A.'s "Eastside." Looking through Silver Lake, Echo Park, and Los Feliz, Sanders receives nearly two or three times the number of donations as Clinton.
  • Support for Republican candidates is pretty low, but of all the candidates it seems Marco Rubio (lol) has the greatest support, especially in Palos Verdes and Pasadena.
  • North Hollywood really feeling the Bern', where Sanders out-raises Clinton nearly ten-to-one in multiple ZIP codes.
  • Other neighborhoods in the Valley are a mixed bag. Several show similar levels of Sanders support as North Hollywood. But others, like Chatsworth and Porter Ranch, skew towards Hillary.
  • Trump supporters are few and far between (phew).
  • We're pretty sure the only two John Kasich supporters in all of L.A. County live in Sunland and Tarzana.
  • Four people who live north of Montana Avenue in Santa Monica gave a total of $2,884 to Donald Trump.
  • The South Bay is much more politically diverse than other parts of the city.
  • Almost all donations come from wealthier neighborhoods. While it's not uncommon to see 200 or more donors per ZIP code on the Westside, South and East L.A. often have fewer than three donors per ZIP code.
