How Out-of-Touch Is the Nation’s Capital—and New York City— From the Rest of the Country?

In the 2016 presidential election, only 4 percent of the voters in Washington, D.C., the nation’s political capital, voted Republican; in Manhattan, the nation’s financial capital, 11 percent voted Republican.

That suggests that Washington and New York City are out-of-touch with the rest of the country.

Another way that the two cities are different: here are the five American cities with the most ultra-wealthy residents, people with $30 million or more of investable assets:

New York City
Los Angeles
Chicago
San Francisco
Washington, D.C.

Only four other cities world-wide have more ultra-high net worth than Washington, D.C.:

Hong Kong
Tokyo
Paris
London
