HYDE PARK — Yes, some of Barack Obama’s immediate neighbors voted for Donald Trump.
As the final vote totals come in, there was some support for President-elect Donald Trump among Obama’s neighbors in the 33rd precinct of the 4th Ward.
According to totals as of Thursday night, 20 people in the president’s precinct voted for Trump — exactly the same number of voters who supported Green Party candidate Jill Stein. That’s 3 percent of the total for the precinct, which Hillary Clinton carried easily with 610 votes.
For people in the most liberal parts of the city like Hyde Park and Kenwood, Wednesday morning could easily have felt like the country was suddenly full of Trump supporters who had gone unseen in the polls.
And yes, there are Trump voters in Hyde Park and Kenwood. But Trump’s percentage of the vote never hit double digits in the neighborhood and in only two precincts did Clinton’s support fall below 90 percent.
Trump got the most support in the 5th Ward’s 11th Precinct, a tiny area in dense East Hyde Park on the east side of Cornell Avenue just north of 55th Street. In that part of Hyde Park, Trump managed to capture 38 votes to Clinton’s 538 votes, garnering him more than 6 percent of the vote in the precinct.
The highest precinct in raw numbers of votes for Trump was the 23rd precinct of the 5th Ward, just to the east of the 11th precinct. In the pricey cooperatives and high-rises with lakefront views, 44 people voted for Trump, compared with 924 votes for Clinton.
In total, 686 people in Hyde Park and Kenwood voted for Trump on Tuesday.
Libertarian Gary Johnson and the Green Party's Stein together attracted a little more than 3 percent of the vote as well, with Johnson receiving 258 votes and Stein receiving 434 votes.
