Huffington Post has done an extremely useful thing: created an online database of presidential campaign contributions, which can be broken down by zip code or by name of donor.

As the site itself notes, Beverly Hills 90210 has given $1,212,014 to candidates; whereas South Central 90011 has given $4250. Which zone will be best represented in the White House, one wonders?

As for my own zip code, my neighbors have given $0.00 to Republicans and over $30,000 to Bill Richardson— and to no other Democrat whatsoever.

New Mexicans are different from you and me.

Check out the 87801 ZIP code (where Kathy works.)

I think it’s pretty obvious that much of Richardson’s early support is from politicians who are part of his patronage empire. It will be interesting to see what happens as the race heats up. I’ll check back in January…
