EDISON PARK — The Far Northwest Side of Chicago — not far from where the eventual first lady, senator, secretary of state and Democratic presidential nominee grew up — remains Hillary Clinton country, based on a DNAinfo analysis of 2016 campaign contributions.

While Clinton was born in Edgewater, she moved with her family to Park Ridge — just beyond Chicago's northwest border — when she was a toddler, and attended high school in the suburb.

Clinton's campaign outraised Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump by 86 percent in the six ZIP codes that include the Edison Park, Norwood Park, O'Hare, Dunning, Portage Park, Jefferson Park and Forest Glen community areas, according to the analysis.

But compared with 2008, the last presidential election year when a sitting president wasn't running for the job, Chicagoans have been much less likely to open their pocketbooks for the government's top job, according to data from the Federal Election Commission.

From Far Northwest Side residents, Clinton has raised about 46 percent of what President Barack Obama — who had the benefit of being one of Chicago's favorite sons — hauled in during the 2008 campaign through Aug. 31, according to the analysis.

One area in which Clinton is outperforming Obama is money raised per Chicago donor. The former U.S. senator and state lawmaker raised $919 per Chicago donor through this point in 2008. Clinton has raised $1,097 per person.

Trump is even further behind Obama's 2008 opponent, U.S. Sen. John McCain. The developer-turned-reality-television-star has raised only 20 percent of what the Arizona Republican took in during the 2008 campaign, according to the analysis.

But in one Far Northwest Side ZIP code, Trump beat not only McCain's 2008 mark but also his rival in this year's campaign, according to campaign contribution data.

Residents of the 60656 zip code, which includes the O'Hare and Norwood Park neighborhoods, have given Trump $4,300 — nearly $1,400 than he took in from more than any other Far Northwest Side ZIP code, and about $1,100 more than Clinton did from the same area.

Trump also has more donors on the Northwest Side than McCain, but they aren't donating nearly as much. McCain raised $1,301 per Chicago donor. Trump is getting just $209.
