This morning the Columbia Journalism Review puts into pictures what most of could have guessed about the political leaning of King's County: Brooklyn's pretty blue. Working with data from opensecrets.org, CJR mapped political contributions to Obama and McCain by zip code. Only seven areas donated in McCain's favor, and they were all in the south. By far the most pro-McCain neighborhood was Bensonhurst, where the white-haired war hero got 95% of the loot. The percentage was flipped in Park Slope, where Obama raked in a total of $496,089.
