Never discuss politics. It’s a bedrock rule of polite conversation that’s getting harder to follow, especially when Donald Trump comes to town. But now there’s a way to figure out who your neighbors are supporting without hazarding the question. Renthop, a real-estate startup working from the FEC’s open political donation records, is providing a neighborly peek over the fence (and into the financial contributions) of those who share your zip code.


Overall, the numbers aren’t too surprising. DC is bullish on Hillary Clinton, who has secured nearly 4,000 donations and $5.2 million. Donald Trump, the self-funded candidate, can thank 18 DC residents for almost $8,000.

20016 (Tenleytown-Cathedral Heights), 20007 (Georgetown) and 20008 (Woodley Park-Cleveland Park-Van Ness) were among the city’s most giving zip codes, where individual donations hovered around $1,500.

Renthop hopes renters will want to share a Metro stop with like-minded voters. Bernie fans, for example, should check out listings in Brookland. If you’re looking to live near Hillary supporters, rest easy. You probably already do.
