The North End / Waterfront is not just home to Mitt Romney’s national election headquarters, but recent data indicates that residents are also supporting the Republican presidential candidate with their wallets.
Using data through March 2012 from the Federal Elections Commission, Matt M. Casey at Charlestown Patch supplies the following analysis:
The former governor built a lead in the North End waterfront [zip code 02109], raising about $8,000 more than Obama’s $32,000. Nearby, Romney shellacked (to use the president’s term) Obama in the North End itself [zip code 02113]. Romney’s nearly $20,000 more than tripled Obama’s $6,500.
Besides 02113 and 02109, there is also part of the North End included in the 02110 zip code toward Downtown where Obama beats Romney $82,014 to $56,800. In Boston, Obama is ahead by about $500,000 in fund raising.
