The party of the rich is . . . ?

I note that the recent mid-term elections have produced one interesting result that hasn’t received much comment.

California, New Jersey, New York and Virginia dominated the top 10 wealthiest congressional districts. Out of the wealthiest 50 districts, 13 are located in California; eight are in New York; five in New Jersey; and four in Virginia. Massachusetts, which didn’t make the top 10, still sports four of the nation’s richest congressional districts.

Here are the 10 richest congressional districts in the U.S. by median household income:

  • Congressional District 10, Virginia: $116,069 | Democrat
  • Congressional District 18, California: $112,702 | Democrat
  • Congressional District 17, California: $107,946 | Democrat
  • Congressional District 11, Virginia: $105,024 | Democrat
  • Congressional District 7, New Jersey: $104,987 | Democrat
  • Congressional District 3, New York: $104,805 | Democrat
  • Congressional District 11, New Jersey: $103,419 | Democrat
  • Congressional District 8, Virginia: $100,649 | Democrat
  • Congressional District 33, California: $99,902 | Democrat
  • Congressional District 8, Maryland: $97,663 | Democrat

. . .

Among the top 10 richest congressional districts, Democrats now represent all 10. Out of the 50 richest districts, Democrats have 41 to Republicans’ nine.

There’s more at the link.

I guess the Republicans aren’t the “party of the Establishment” any more!



  1. It's logical to assume the most unethical of the wealthy would want a corruptible party for their use, and the Democratic Party is up to the challenge of doing things in their best interest. At this time, they don't have complete control of the United States, but if the media, and corrupt Democrats, are allowed to continue their assault on the Constitution, they'll eventually subjugate the peons to do their bidding.

  2. They never where. Dems just said they were to confuse the workers and get them to vote for their lies.

    They have an endless desire for more. The rest of use are willing to do with less to keep what we have.

    This is not going to end well.

  3. Hmm I live in the 37th highest median income district (MA 6th, Moulton). From time to time a republican gives the democrat a run for his money. However, it's kind of hopeless. The district is SERIOUSLY gerrymandered (which is vaguely ironic as the original Gerrymandered district has most of its towns in the 6th), in particular the Cities of Salem, Lynn and Lawrence are in it to balance out the far more conservative suburbs. But it is instructive that 41 of the top 50 are D, and looking at them they are almost all dark blue. Makes no darn sense whatsoever as the D would reinstate a 95% top bracket in a flash if they could.

  4. Only the rich and powerful can afford socialism. That pretty much tells you everything you need to know about socialism. And the rich and powerful.
